Warm Audio wants you to know:
Like Father. Like Son.
The WA-47jr is an FET transformerless version of the highly renowned classic '47 microphone that has been used on countless hit records for the last 50+ years. The WA-47jr is fully discrete, has 3 polar patterns and is designed for pro studio, home studio, live, and broadcast applications. The WA-47jr sounds great on vocals, acoustic/electric guitars, acoustic/electric bass, drums, piano, strings, brass/woodwind instruments, and an array of other sources.
The WA-47jr proudly utilizes a custom k47 style capsule reproduction, designed with the same hole pattern and frequency response as the vintage design. Our version of this capsule (model# WA-47-B-80v) is carefully manufactured by an Australian capsule manufacturer with careful precision and repeat-ability that allows the most important sonic piece of the classic mic to be heard and influence the tone and signature of the WA-47jr. The WA47jr's low-noise and discrete signal path, when paired with this excellent true '47-style capsule, allows it to obtain a very similar tone to the classic '47 microphone, but at a much lower price tag. The WA-47jr utilizes the same k47 style capsule found in our flagship WA-47 tube condenser microphone. The WA-47jr circuit uses high-quality Toshiba FET's, Wima film capacitors and Panasonic electrolytic capacitors. The circuit is modernized and more simple than the classic '47 tube microphone, but the components and circuitry are top-notch, and have a sound quality and tone that punches far above anything heard in this price range.
Warm is very excited to bring this '47-style FET condenser microphone and classic tone to the market at such an affordable price. We feel confident that you will enjoy a lifetime of beautiful recordings with the WA-47jr!
