SOUND PROFILE: Pristine Highs With Balanced Lows & Mids
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-47jr is a multi-pattern mic with available cardioid, omnidirectional, and figure-8 patterns. A selectable -10dB pad allows the 47jr to handle SPLs up to 157dBs making capturing loud sources easy. Engaging the 70 Hz Hi-Pass filter helps filter unwanted bass rumble and noise at the source instead of playing with potentially tone-destructive EQ during the mixing process.
