Warm Audio Gear
- WA-87 Condenser Microphone
"My WA87 mic is an essential part of my recording setup. I use it daily in my studio and is an integral part of my drum sound. The clarity and punch I get is what I've been searching for. I have also used the WA87 as a vocal mic for sessions and it has completely blown me away with its pristine performance."
