Smooth
Frednugent, 20.01.2018
I got this mic knowing that it couldn't sound as good as a vintage U47 but I was hoping for something close. I was pleasently suprised when I tested it. The sounds is smooth and silky when some smart EQ is applied. It is solid and big souding. I would describe it as "modern vintage", In a good way. I tested it directly into my DAW and it sounds better than all my other mics. I tried it to tape and it opened up like a flower. There is a little self noise that I noticed but controllable with some smart gain staging. It took a little while to find the sweet spot for my voice but once I got it everything flowed. It doesnt sound like a 10,000 Euro mic but does sound way better than what it costs. I also tried it a room mic with drums. Souded great. Warm Audio is sort of taking over the world right now. The WA-47 is definately worth a try if you like a U47 with your voice. This one will be with me for a while. I'm loving it.

Abdulla J., 28.10.2018
it does more than what's expected from a clone at that price point.
3 stars for quality because the grip of shockmount isn't good. fixed with wrapping extra cloth around the mic.
everything else is good.
