The WA-47jr is a contemporary multi-pattern, transformerless, FET condenser mic designed to deliver the sound profile of the coveted '47-style tube microphone at an unthinkable price. Like the original vintage U47 tube microphone, the 47jr features a proper large-diaphragm 34mm K-47-style capsule. This capsule is so revered for its ability to capture detail with analog depth, that it has been used as the basis for several ultra-unattainable microphone designs of the last half-century. Combining possibly the greatest condenser capsule of all time with our carefully crafted, modern circuit delivers that analog warmth and pristine detail for capturing everything from vocals to toms to acoustic guitar. With three polar patterns, a -10dB pad, and 70Hz Hi-Pass filter, the WA-47jr will easily become the most versatile mic in your locker.
The WA-47-B-50v capsule is a true reproduction of the large, dual-diaphragm K47-style capsule and the same capsule in the award-winning WA-47 tube microphone. This capsule captures authentic analog detail across the 20Hz-20kHz frequency response. With the warmth of the capsule combined with extra top-end information from the FET, the WA-47jr will be right at home on many sources
The WA-47jr uses premium Toshiba transistors that deliver professional audio fidelity. The WIMA film capacitors and Panasonic electrolytic capacitors in the WA-47jr provide critical signal conversion, allowing the 47jr to get the full benefit of the K47-stye capsule with the added top-end boost from the Toshiba FETs.
