Warm Audio recreates the RCA 44BX with its latest microphone

A Nod to the Classics

The WA-44 is a sophisticated rendition of the original RCA 44BX. Known for its use by crooners, band leaders, drummers, upright bassists, producers, and more, the RCA 44BX was renowned for its powerful bass, pronounced proximity effect, lush mids, and tamed top end. The WA-44 faithfully reproduces these characteristics, making it an excellent choice for capturing the iconic warm, vintage, and sultry tones.

Unmatched Build Quality

With elite build quality and vintage-matched premium components, the WA-44 from Warm Audio captures the essence of the original while ensuring modern reliability. Each WA-44 is carefully hand-inspected and tested at Warm Audio Headquarters in Austin, Texas, guaranteeing a microphone that meets the highest standards.

Key Features

  • Vintage-Correct Ribbon & Custom Transformer: The WA-44 features a 99.1% aluminum ribbon, true-to-length, 2.5 microns thick, custom-crafted in Japan. It is paired with a heavy, true-to-size Neodymium magnet and a USA-made CineMag transformer, ensuring true-to-vintage tone with modern reliability.
  • Sultry, Rich Sound: The WA-44 captures powerful bass, rich midrange, and never-harsh highs, making it perfect for vocals, horns, drums, pianos, strings, and more.
  • Robust Neodymium Magnet: Superior to traditional AlNiCo magnets, the Neodymium magnet ensures efficient conversion of sound energy to electrical signal, enhancing the microphone's longevity and performance.
  • Gotham AG Premium Cable: The WA-44 comes with a Star-Quad shielded “pigtail style” XLR cable from Gotham, Switzerland, which reduces phase shift and parasitic effects, ensuring a pristine audio signal.
  • Complete Studio Package: Includes an embroidered protective mic sock and a molded case, ready for everyday studio use.

Why Choose the WA-44?

The WA-44 excels on loud audio sources, making it a perfect choice for capturing intricate low and midrange details. Its tight figure-8 polar pattern allows for unique studio tones by rejecting side-address noise and reproducing reflections from the back of the mic. This makes it ideal for vocal or instrument recordings that benefit from a reduction in high-end frequencies, such as haunting horn sections, resonant acoustic instruments, sultry strings, flat drum sounds, and deep piano tones.

Experience the Iconic Sound

True to its vintage original, the WA-44 offers an instantly recognizable sound profile that captures the warmth and character that made the RCA 44BX a legend. Whether you're a professional musician, producer, or a home studio enthusiast, the WA-44 is designed to deliver a superior recording experience.
