The WA-84 is a cardioid, vintage-style, small diaphragm condenser microphone based on classic microphone circuit topology. The WA-84 sports a fully discrete signal path, a CineMag USA transformer, Fairchild transistors and Wima capacitors. The WA-84 is designed for pro studio, home studio, live, and broadcast applications and sounds great on a variety of instruments and sources, such as; acoustic/electric guitars, acoustic/electric bass, drums, piano, strings, brass & woodwind instruments, and an array of other sources.

The WA-84 has a very LARGE sound for it’s small size and uniquely uses a heavy Nickel CineMag signal transformer in it’s signal path to warm up and ENLARGE sound sources. Small diaphragm condenser microphones have widely moved to transformer-less technology in recent years for ease and lower-cost manufacturing. When designing the WA-84, however, we chose to go the extra mile and take the classic route by tackling a more boutique design known for it’s it’s crystal clear, yet smooth, LARGE sound.

We are proud to offer something special to the market-place by using large core transformer technology (CineMag USA) in a small diaphragm condenser microphone package. The result is a circuit that we feels sounds absolutely gorgeous and goes the extra mile in terms of signal integrity and smooth boutique tone. The WA-84 is offered in both nickel and black colors and in single and stereo pair quantities.
