Large Diaphragm Condenser Microphone

The WA-14 is a '414-style condenser microphone based on the early 1970's microphone used on countless hit records. The WA-14 utilizes a custom all-brass CK12-style capsule, CineMag USA transformer, and a fully discrete signal path.  The WA-14 can be used on an array of sources, such as; punchy/warm intimate lead vocals, acoustic/electric guitars, bass, drums/percussion, strings/orchestral material, and many other sources. The WA-14 provides a realism and thickness that is true to the vintage microphone, but now at an affordable price.

All-brass Capsule

The WA-12-B-60V is an all-brass, edge-terminated capsule that captures all the smoothness, rich top end, and warm vintage sonics of the original CK12 capsule.  The WA-12-B-60V uses a variant CEK-12 backplate as a basis, which overcomes manufacturing limitations of the original CK12 capsule.  The o-ring and housing of the WA-12-B-60V are all made from brass (no teflon parts), and the diaphragm is 24k gold sputtered 6 micron, NOS PET film (mylar).  The end result is a very consistent, reliable capsule which matches the frequency response and tonality of the classic 1970's classic capsule.

"The WA-14 is very close to the 414 EB. I can see the WA-14's as my go-to mics for piano and acoustic guitars from now on."
