Built to honor a legendary hip-hop and R&B mic from the '90s, the Warm Audio WA-8000 Large-Diaphragm Multipattern Tube Condenser Microphone offers rappers, singers, producers, and engineers a chance to attain unmistakable polish and presence at a small fraction of the cost associated with the mic that inspired it. Adhering to Warm Audio's guiding principles, the WA-8000 utilizes precision construction with top-shelf components strictly selected for their rewarding, high-class audio performance.

With its K67-style solid brass capsule, military-grade NOS 6AU6 vacuum tube, and custom Lundahl transformer, the WA-8000 is capable of delivering the airy highs, midrange clarity, and detailed nuance that made the original mic an icon. Plus, its selectable cardioid and omnidirectional polar patterns give it the versatility to capture vocals, acoustic instruments, and room ambience equally well. Knowing that extras matter, Warm Audio supplies the WA-8000 with a shockmount, premium 7-pin tube mic cable, PSU (power supply unit), and hard shell carrying case.

  • The WA-8000 is easily recognizable by its open top end, crystal clear midrange, and an uncanny ability to capture every detail of acoustic sources. While most commonly known for R&B, rap, and hip-hop, the WA-8000 gives you that unmistakable “airy” and polished sound associated with some of the most hi-fidelity recordings of the '90s and beyond.
  • The WA-8000 is a true studio workhorse equipped to capture any voice or acoustic instrument with elite results. True to the Warm formula, the WA-8000 is designed with uncompromising standards using carefully selected, premium components.
  • The WA-8000 features the Swedish-made Lundahl transformer, which performed well beyond any other components during rigorous testing cycles.
  • The NOS 6AU6 tubes selected for assembly provide the widest clear dynamic range of the various brands tested, opening up the greatest level of sonic detail with generous amounts of headroom.
  • Inspired by the original, the all-brass K67-style capsule is engineered with precision, leveraging the highest quality raw materials, even down to the tensioning hoops.
  • A custom-designed external tube mount and heat sink component lowers self-noise and maintains optimal operating temperature.
  • An often overlooked accessory of tube microphones is the multipin tube mic cable. The WA-8000 includes a 7-pin GAC-7 cable manufactured by Gotham Switzerland to strict standards that outshine alternatives in terms of rejection and signal-to-noise performance.
  • As expected with a mic of its caliber, the WA-8000 is supplied with a shockmount to complete the studio-worthy look and performance.
  • A professional-level, hard carrying case is included to ensure safe transport of the microphone and its premium components.
