Warm Audio WA-67 R2 opinions?

Hi !

Here I am again, still searching for the next buy (Dawm GAS)

I'm sure not many bought this mic since it's fairly new on the market but I still want your opinion on it.
Until now I own many mics but this could be my first tube mic.
Another option is the WA-87 (fet), but since I have a S87 from mic parts, I'm trying to figure out how different sounding the WA-67 is.
People usually think tube gear are more colored but I know that many are very clean, but this 67 also have a Lundahl transformer.

Warm audio WA-47jr vs. ... ?

Hi there..

In this video I compare the warm audio wa-47jr to 2 other mics that share the same kind of capsule and EQ curve.. The Neumann U47 inspired mics all have a bit less high frequencies than other general condenser mics.. They are perfect for HF aggressive instruments and sibilant voices..

I'm building a S-87 and soon will do a few videos about it. I will also include the mics in this video. So stay tuned

Let me know what you think..

Warm audio / SSL preamps

Hi...I have a PreSonus 192 interface with the xmax pre's, and have been looking at upgrading/getting other pre's
for vocals and acoustic guitar. Looking at SSL, 4 pre's for $1700; Warm audio, 4 pre's around $1000 and others
Daking, UA610,etc... same price range. My question really is has anyone used the SSL and the Warm audio stuff(eg's and dynamics as well) paired with tube(Mojave Ma 300) and small diaphragm condensers (AKG 970's) ?

Warm Audio announced API 312 style preamp!

Oh man oh man, this could be good. Fingers crossed. @$1199 it's excellent per channel cost, got input And output xformers, and also an an output knob per channel, which could be useful when not only for good gain staging, but especially if these trannys overdrive pleasantly. Plus the op amps are easily swappable. If I'm dreaming I don't wanna wake up! I hope it sounds as cool as it seems on paper!
