FET transformerless version of the highly renowned classic 47 large-diaphragm condenser microphone
The Warm Audio WA-47jr Microphone 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.
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 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 the flagship WA-47 tube condenser microphone.
The WA-47jr circuit uses high-quality Toshiba FETs, 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 heard in this price range.

Best mic I've used so far, real warm sounding. Perfect for vocals!
I was recording with the AT-2020, and it was great. BUT, this mic changed everything. I run it through my WA-12mkii preamp, and my vocals are out in front and nearly perfect before adding EQ and compression. This mic was so good that I recently ordered a WA-87r2, to give me a little different voiced mic. Warm Audio is where it's at. I'll have some tracks on YouTube quickly with this mic.
