Their acclaimed compressors and preamps have famously upset the pro audio price/performance ratio. When Warm Audio turned their attention to microphones, they set high targets: the most iconic large-diaphragm FET condenser mics in history. Behold the WA-14. It’s based on a studio classic. Flash back to any top recording facility in the late 1970s. You’ll see its venerable progenitor everywhere. On pianos, acoustic guitars, overheads, vocals, brass, percussion — you name it. Sweetwater engineers who have worked with this perennial studio favorite know that the all-brass, edge-terminated CK12 dual-backplate/dual-membrane capsule is a key ingredient in this mic’s legendary sound. Warm Audio closely followed this timeless design when they engineered their own LK-12-B-60V Lens Kondensator for the WA-14. Stellar performance, top-shelf parts, and amazing value: that’s the Warm formula — and the WA-14 nails it again.
