  2. Warm Audio - WA-47jr FET Condenser Microphone - Front_Zoom

    Model: WA-47JR BLACK
    SKU: 6443694

    Product Description

    The WA-47jr FET offers one of the most coveted classic microphone capsule designs in an affordable microphone circuit. The WA-47jr FET uses a high quality discrete transformerless circuit with Toshiba FET's, Wima film capacitors, and Panasonic electrolytic capacitors. The WA-47jr FET brings the tone and character of the classic '47 style microphone to you through the most critical component (its capsule) and is able to maintain an aggressive price-point by simplifying the rest of the circuit topology. The WA-47jr FET's simplified circuit is in no way a low quality circuit but is simpler to build and uses less components than a vintage tube microphone, which allows us to offer it at such a bargain price. The WA-47jr FET uses the same capsule as the Warm Audio flagship WA-47 tube microphone and sounds wildly similar to the WA-47. Features: · Pattern Select Switch - This switch selects the polar pattern for the WA-47jr FET's capsule. The three polar pattern options are: Omnidirectional, Cardioid, and Figure-Of-Eight. · XLR Output - The WA-47jr FET's output is a balanced, gold-contact 3-pin XLR which accepts a standard XLR to XLR shielded microphone cable. · High Pass Filter Switch - This switch engages a 70hz high pass filter for reducing rumble and other subsonic information. · -10dB Pad Switch - This switch engages a -10dB pad within the active circuitry

    Top comment

    "Solid and affordable microphone...I actually do some recording for work where I demo software or document workflows, so I like being able to record using something better than headphone microphones. You just get a lot more bass and clarity without the flat modulation you get on cheaper microphones with this unit which is great. ...Huge improvement over my laptop microphone...There is a handy large pause button on top of the microphone. Aside from the microphones functional software, the only two pieces of the software package I have had a chance to use are the voice changer and the wallpapers. "

    "i purchased this mic on march 27th the day it came out and have since recorded over 200 tracks of spoken word and song. the quality is incredible for a 100.00 unit much better than the Blue Microphones Bluebird Microphone that reatails for 300.00. if you are looking to do voice overs or better quality for skype this is the mic and if you are recording podcast i would also recommend this mic...The Good: It has a better sound than most cheap, gimmicky microphones you will find in box stores. The Meteor has a headphone port, thus allowing you to record while hearing the background music, but not picking it up in the microphone. "
