Warm Audio WA-47F Large Diaphragm FET Condenser Microphone

Faithful recreation of an exceedingly rare, wildly popular large diaphragm FET microphone known for its ability to handle high sound pressure levels with great accuracy making it perfect for drums and vocals

MFR# WA-47F

Product Description

A faithful recreation of the renowned U47 FET mic, the Warm Audio WA-47F is a versatile large diaphragm condenser microphone that’s perfect for capturing loud, gritty noises, from thunderous drums to roaring guitar amps and in-your-face vocals. In order to capture the massive sound of the original, the WA-47F utilizes Warm’s proprietary K47-style capsule and a custom output transformer.

Celebrated as the “secret weapon” for kick drums and vocals, the original U47 FET was used on countless hit records by superstars such as Aimee Mann, Van Halen, Dave Grohl (Nirvana, Foo Fighters), AC/DC and more. Warm Audio cut no corners with this recreation, starting with a gold-sputtered, large diaphragm, single-backplate K47-style capsule, meticulously selected to capture an ultra-wide frequency response and high SPLs, just like the original. Perfect for drums, amplifiers and even horn sections, the WA-47F can easily handle SPLs up to 137 dB and 147 dB with -10 dB pad engaged.

Next, Warm utilized a custom large-core TAB-Funkenwerk output transformer imported from Germany to drive the signal. Finally, premium Fairchild transistors ensure edgy harmonics with plenty of vintage vibe. And of course, the WA-47F includes a premium wood box for transporting your mic from session to session and custom hard mount for attaching the mic to any standard stand. So don’t wait. Get your Warm Audio 47F from Vintage King Audio today and bring your music to life.

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.

From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
