WA-84 Premium Stereo Package: Featuring Cardioid and omni capsules

The WA-84 is a small diaphragm condenser microphone based on classic microphone circuitry.  The WA-84 Premium Stereo Package with Cardioid and Omni Capsules features a fully discrete Class A design that utilizes CineMag USA transformers, polystyrene and Wima capacitors and Fairchild FETs.  The WA-84 Premium Stereo Package with Cardioid and Omni Capsules is designed for pro studio, home studio, live, and broadcast applications and sounds great on a variety of instruments and sources, such as; acoustic/electric guitars, acoustic/electric bass, drums, piano, strings, brass & woodwind instruments, and an array of other sources.

Large Sound, Small Size

The WA-84 Premium Stereo package includes 2 microphones with Cardioid and Omni Capsules that have a very LARGE sound for their small size. Thes WA-84's uniquely use heavy Nickel CineMag transformers in their signal path to warm up and ENLARGE sound sources.  Small diaphragm condenser microphones have widely moved to transformer-less technology in recent years for ease of design and a lower-cost manufacturing.  When designing the WA-84 we chose to go the extra mile and tackle a more boutique design known for its crystal clear, yet smooth, LARGE sound.  


We are proud to offer something special to the market-place by using large core transformer technology (CineMag USA) in a small diaphragm condenser microphone package.  The result is circuits that we feel sound absolutely gorgeous and go the extra mile in terms of signal integrity and smooth boutique tone.

The Capsules

The WA-84 Premium Stereo Package with Cardioid and Omni Capsules utilizes custom vintage-style capsules designed to emulate classic componentry and design techniques. The WA-84's capsules are carefully manufactured by an Australian capsule supplier and are precisely reproduced to vintage specs. We are pleased to offer such high quality capsules in these microphones which allows us to nail the sonics of the most important component of any microphone kit.

The Circuits

The WA-84 Premium Stereo Package with Cardioid and Omni Capsules supplies microphones that have fully discrete Class A circuits and utilize CineMag USA transformers, polystyrene and Wima capacitors and Fairchild FETs.

The Transformers

The WA-84 Premium Stereo Package with Cardioid and Omni Capsules utilizes American made CineMag USA transformers in the microphone's signal paths. This boutique component contributes to the legendary creamy smooth top-end and the BEEFY mid to bottom-end one would hope to get from an 84-style small diaphragm condenser microphone.

The Capacitors

The WA-84 Premium Stereo Package with Cardioid and Omni Capsules proudly utilizes Wima, polystyrene and tantalum through-hole capacitors throughout the whole circuit.

“I absolutely love these mics. Like the vintage models from decades ago, they are very smooth and among the most versatile small diaphragm condenser microphones ever made. Every studio needs a pair.”
