"Words can't describe how much I love my WA-47jr mic. It is the perfect mic to match with a lot of the auto-tune based rap vocals and r&b singing vocals I find myself recording mostly. The mic gives me a full yet clear sound that is easy to EQ. My clients are usually shocked when I tell them how much the mic costs and I have even gotten a few of them to purchase their own!"
