Warm Audio WA-8000


Introducing the WA-8000 tube condenser microphone. The inspiration for the latest release from Warm Audio is a highly sought-after and revered design of the early 1990s - the Sony C-800 G, affectionately known as The UZI for its unique placement of the heat sink. The WA-8000 lives up to the sonic legacy that continues to foster die-hard fans to this day. Boasting a natural, open top end, supremely clear midrange, and the ability to render detail in a vocal performance unlike most other mics on the planet, let alone in this price range. Engineered true to spec, the WA-8000 meets all of the critical specifications of the original, giving you the true sound of modern R&B and Hip hop at an unprecedented value.

The WA-8000 is easily recognisable by its open top end, crystal clear midrange, and an uncanny ability to capture every detail of acoustic sources. While most commonly known for modern R&B, Rap, and Hip-hop, the WA-8000 gives you that unmistakable “airy” and polished sound associated with some of the most hi-fidelity recordings of the 90’s and beyond. While vocals and voiceover work may immediately come to mind, the WA-8000 also makes an incredible room microphone for sessions demanding an unparalleled level of detail. Not exclusively a microphone for Rap/Hip-Hop and R&B, the WA-8000 is a true studio workhorse equipped to capture any voice or acoustic instrument with elite results.
