The classic '87 is arguably the most widely-used large-diaphragm condenser microphone in pop recording history. Rather than base the WA-87 circuit on current incarnations of this mic, Warm Audio decided to closely follow the early circuit designs that date back nearly half a century. As is true with many classic microphones, engineers who have worked with different versions of these microphones often prefer the warmer, more forgiving nature of the earlier commercially available models.

Discrete, Premium Components
The Warm Audio WA-87 features all discrete, premium components such as Fairchild FETs, tantalum, polystyrene, and WIMA film capacitors, and is rounded off with a Cinemag USA output transformer. The WA-87 proudly uses Warm Audio's own Lens Kondensator custom reproduction of the classic K-87 dual backplate/dual diaphragm capsule, as found in early '87 mics.  

Top Shelf Quality at an Affordable Price
The importance of a good microphone cannot be understated; but unfortunately, finding a truly great microphone within a budget has always been a challenge for aspiring engineers. There are very usable microphones available for those on a budget; but top shelf, classic studio microphones have simply been out of reach for most people. Warm Audio is bridging this barrier by crafting a microphone that reaches the level of quality and sonics mostly found only in top shelf products, yet sells for a price that is down to earth.


  • Lens Kondensator LK-87-B-50V reproduction of classic dual backplate (four wire termination) K87 capsule
  • Cardioid, figure of eight, and omnidirectional polar patterns
  • CineMag USA Output Transformer

Great Mic nothing but quality control.



An affordable alternative to a U-87


The u-87 has long been touted as the go to due to its ability to capture clarity especially in the high frequencies. This classic remake is modeled after the vintage U87 and retains that crisp high end that is so sought after. Update: 6 months later, I am headed back to the store to replace it- though it has been through a bump or two, I'm disappointed to have to cash in on the warranty so soon.



Truly Amazing!!!!!


By far the best microphone in this price range hands down. If you have the budget and are in the market for a new mic then this should be at the top of the list.



Well built and real deal!


This mic was created by Warm Audio-a phenomenal company that painstakingly tries to recreate the essence of many vintage era studio components and microphones . This Wa-87 appears to get its inspiration from the very expensive Neumann u-87 (which sells for about $3500}. Here again Warm Audio has "nailed it" and created a microphone that responds and records much like a very expensive Neumann 87. A great all around microphone that can be used to record anything-from vocals to drums. This microphone is solid and comes with a beautiful box and shock mount. A main go-to mic for any studio
