Capture Rich And Classic Sounds With The Warm Audio WA-47jr - FET Transformerless Condenser Microphone

The WA-47jr is an FET transformerless version of the highly renowned classic ‘47 microphone that has been used on countless hit records for the last 50+ years. The WA-47jr is fully discrete, has 3 polar patterns and is designed for pro studio, home studio, live, and broadcast applications. The WA-47jr sounds great on vocals, acoustic/electric guitars, acoustic/electric bass, drums, piano, strings, brass/woodwind instruments, and an array of other sources.

Like Father, Like Son

The WA-47jr proudly utilizes a custom k47 style capsule reproduction, designed with the same hole pattern and frequency response as the vintage design. Warm's version of this capsule (model# WA-47-B-80v) is carefully manufactured by an Australian capsule manufacturer with careful precision and repeat-ability that allows the most important sonic piece of the classic mic to be heard, and to influence the tone and signature of the WA-47jr. The WA47jr's low-noise and discrete signal path, when paired with this excellent true '47 style capsule, allows it to obtain a very similar tone to the classic ‘47 microphone, but at a much lower price tag. The WA-47jr utilizes the same k47 style capsule found in their flagship WA-47 tube condenser microphone.

The WA-47jr circuit uses high quality Toshiba FET’s, Wima film capacitors and Panasonic electrolytic capacitors. The circuit is modernized and more simple than the classic ‘47 tube microphone, but the components and circuitry are top-notch, and have a sound quality and tone that punches far above anything ever heard in this price range.

Warm Audio is very excited to bring this ‘47 style FET condenser microphone and classic tone to the market at such an affordable price. They are confident that you will enjoy a lifetime of beautiful recordings with the WA-47jr.

Quality Components Make A Better Mic

The WA-47jr proudly utilizes a custom k47 style capsule reproduction, designed with the same hole pattern and frequency response as the vintage part. This capsule (model# WA-47-B-80v) is assembled with precision by an Australian capsule manufacturer. The WA47jr's low-noise and discrete signal path then paired with an excellent true '47 style capsule allows this mic to obtain a very similar tone to the classic ‘47 microphone at a much lower price tag.

The Warm Audio WA-47-B-80v capsule is also used in the flagship WA-47 tube condenser microphone.

Born Out Of Need

When designing their first microphone, they knew that the single greatest challenge would be to offer a capsule that was built to a high standard and priced in a range that every-day musicians and engineers could afford. They already knew where to find great microphone transformers, precision resistors, polystyrene, tantalum and WIMA film capacitors; but came to realize that a quality affordable microphone capsule that met all specifications simply wasn’t out there. They would have to develop their own line of capsules.

The WA (Warm Audio) brand of capsule is the result of several years of research, a lifetime of listening, and a passion for great sound. Above all else, Warm Audio capsules came from the desire to give customers far more quality/value than what they are used to getting in an affordable microphone. Every Warm Audio capsule is made in the same small assembly house in a clean-room environment, and packaged in its own protective jewel case until the moment it is loaded into the microphone. Every capsule visually inspected and electrically tested for imperfections. Every capsule is also made with all brass parts (no teflon or other cost saving material), and is carefully skinned from the same supply of high purity NOS Mylar (PET film). They are confident that their microphone capsules will give you a lifetime of great recordings and enjoyment.
