"I have used Warm Audio gear in the past in different studios and also experienced working with the WA-47 Microphone while recording the "Countryside Sessions" for Yesterday's Country. I loved the deep, rich tone we got from the recording with the WA-47. I look forward to purchasing more Warm Audio in the future."
