The K47-style capsule reproduction features dual gold-sputtered, 6-micron Mylar diaphragms with a single backplate. The fully discrete signal path includes Toshiba FETs, WIMA film capacitors, and Panasonic electrolytic capacitors to deliver the clean tone associated with transformerless microphones. With a gold-plated XLR 3-pin connector and operability via 48V phantom power, it is compatible with most mixing consoles and mic preamps. It comes with a vibration-reducing shock mount and a compact hard mount to allow flexibility in placement and positioning.
The Warm Audio WA-47jr Condenser Microphone Large Diaphragm FET utilizes a custom reproduction of the vintage K47-style capsule that was used in the classic U47 microphone—designed with the same pattern and frequency response.
Warm Audio’s version of this capsule (model WA-47-B-80v) is carefully manufactured by an Australian capsule manufacturer whose precision and consistency allow sonic replication of the most important piece of this classic style of microphone.
The Warm Audio WA-47jr Condenser Microphone Large Diaphragm FET discrete signal path pairs with the true U47-style capsule to obtain a very similar tone to the classic U47 microphone. The low self-noise of only 9 dBA enables pristine capture of quiet sound sources.
The Warm Audio WA-47jr Condenser Microphone Large Diaphragm FET incorporates a modernized and simplified circuit design. Toshiba FETs, WIMA film capacitors, and Panasonic electrolytic capacitors contribute to the signature tone of the mic.
Three polar patterns and a -10 dB pad enable versatility for close and distant positions and loud and quiet sources. The 70 Hz high-pass filter aids in reducing rumble, proximity effect, and excessive low frequencies.
