You have that one microphone. You know the one. The USB mic that you've recorded every session with for the past eight years. The "streaming mic" that every YouTuber and "Bedroom Build" tutorial has told you to buy. The trusty *insert brand name here* microphone that wasn't explicitly bad, but wasn't exactly a pleasure to mix either. But then you get some money and some real clients. Do you really want them recording into your Purple Bigfoot from 2011? Of course not. So you watch every shootout on the internet- give everything a listen. Now you're suffering from information overload because you can't decide whether or not the old guys on Gear[site] have gone crazy or are really speaking from experience. Is it an "old man yells at cloud" situation, or do you really need to purchase that vintage $12,000 mic to get the sound you want? How on earth can you determine what mic you're going to need for future sessions? Enter the WA-47. It's one of the options that'll provide you with exactly what you need. Is it an exact clone of any of the 47-based architectures I've used in the past? Not by any means, but for the price-point listed here, you're not going to find a better, cleaner built, and well-rounded tube microphone. Boasting clean highs and a robust low end, this microphone will capture any session singer's voice with a caress and ease that don't belong to any FET mic sub $500.00. It has the tube characteristic that gives you the warmth you want, while also being malleable to EQ and Compression. It's killer on Pop Vocals, Rap Vocals, Jazz Vocals- this mic can go through the ringer and will power through any session. For those suffering with a beginner mic, who want a device that'll bring them closer to professional sounding recordings, this is a great step forward.
