Warm Audio has done it again. This time, they’ve paid tribute to the legendary Neumann U 67. Meet the tube-driven WA-67 large-diaphragm condenser.
Introduced in 1960, the Neumann U 67 set a new benchmark for tube-driven microphone performance. Warm Audio has paid tribute to this icon of the studio with the new WA-67 large-diaphragm condenser.
The company clearly views this latest homage a passion project, going all out to match the anatomy and features that made the original mic so sought after. Fortunately for engineers and musicians, the new WA-67 doesn’t replicate the pricetag of the vintage Neumann.
And while the WA-67 cuts the same silhouette as its muse, the similarities are more than just aesthetic. The WA-67’s capsule assembly is constructed with brass, as per the original spec, even going so far as to replicate the exact hole pattern.
Powering the microphone is a standalone power supply, fitted with an EF86 tube. In the mic itself, there’s a custom large-core transformer from Lundahl, all of which is encased in a nickel-plated brass body and headbasket.
The WA-67 promises to be an all-rounder in the studio, with cardioid, omni-directional and figure-8, patterns, with a high-pass filter and 10dB pad.
