Versatile as main micro

Paul559, 01.03.2017
We bought this micro for a School of Audiovisuals of León, so we have been able to test it already in several situations, in particular with different voices, even next to an old U87. If it had to be defined in a way the word is "versatile": there are microphones with more character for specific applications, but that is precisely why they do not work in almost any situation, which this model does. It could be identified with an AKG 414 from the old, not the best in almost anything but it works on almost everything.
Let no one expect a miracle: If something we have learned over the years is to demystify micros, previos, etc: the same U87 has gone through stages in which everyone adored it and others in which devaluó bastanrte. If in front of any micro of any price there is a good instrument or voice and to be able to be a good acoustics of the room, there will not be a good recording, that is of the little indisputable in sound.
The construction is good, the design "normal pulling ugly" (it has to look like U87 to sell better, we assume), the fact of having logos on both sides (one painted and another metal) leads to confusion when placing it, but the suspension Elastic that brings is good. It also has a single threaded fastening, which mimics that of the Neumann TLM103, 193, etc. It comes in a nice wooden box that we do not use, but that will probably give you some revaluation if you want to sell it in the future.
Is it worth buying this model in front of a condenser micro about 400 euros like the Lewitt or the new Aston, or even a SE Electronics? In our opinion yes, because with the Warm we have more guarantees of sounding well in general than with the others. Although with the sound already known, everything is questionable ...

Hope fulfilled

Rabaukendisko, 20.01.2017
Everyone would like to have a U87, but not everyone can get into the pocket of the bag, and sometimes loosen the money clip to put some of the big notes on the table.

I ordered the mic in the hope of getting a kind of Neumann microphone. Surely I could have bought a TLM 103. This I had once together with a Brauner Phantom ordered. The Neumann is great, but I look at the value, processing and accessories from the Brauner, was clear which I have sent back. In addition, the Brauner has liked the sound better.

Back to the Warm Audio WA-87. It has arrived, I have it climaxed, because at the time very cold outside and was simply enthusiastic. This is my microphone. For men with dark or medium depth voices it is simply just cool. Warm, full, full-bodied and well-balanced. So I imagined that.

The Brauner was there for me not so good, however with women voices it is the micro number one. Here the WA had its difficulties. A singer who can sing high and sometimes powerful can not convince me. It may be that I have the Channelstrip not optimal, but after a few attempts we grabbed the Brauner and there it immediately fit.

Nevertheless, for the money, with the possibility of 8s and ball, it is worth its money in any case. Full score from me at this point
