Warm Audio WA-44 Studio Ribbon Microphone

The WA-44 is a faithful recreation of the most iconic studio ribbon microphone of all time. Just like the legendary RCA 44 ribbons of the 1930s, the WA-44 delivers warm, vintage, sultry tones and excels on loud audio sources. The tight figure-8 polar pattern removes side-address noise while its custom, vintage-matched ribbon and magnet together with a CineMag transformer deliver powerful bass with a pronounced proximity effect, lush mids, and a tamed top end, reducing excessive high end harshness. Featuring premium components and elite build quality, the WA-44 is the perfect choice for capturing lead tones on vocals, horns, acoustics, drums, piano, voice work and much more.

Timeless Ribbon Tone: Delivering the iconic tonal experience at the center of recording and broadcast history, the WA-44 faithfully recreates the warm and vintage tones of the legendary RCA 44 ribbon mic of the 1930s.

Rich Lows & Mids, No Harsh Highs: True to the vintage original, the WA-44 captures powerful bass & rich midrange with enhanced proximity effect. The WA-44 shows off its warm forgiving tone by taming top end harshness for smooth lead tones on vocals, horns, drums, and more.

Sultry On Any Source: Like its inspiration, the WA-44 excels on loud audio sources and removes side-address noise with the tight figure-8 polar pattern. A great choice for vocal recordings that benefit from a reduction in high-end frequencies, the WA-44 is also ideal for capturing haunting horn sections, resonant acoustic instruments, sultry strings, flat drum sounds, deep piano tones, and much more.

Vintage Build, Premium Components: With a boutique-quality build design, the WA-44 is manufactured with exacting quality standards to match the most prized original RCA 44 vintage mics. The WA-44 pairs a true-to-length, custom-crafted Japanese ribbon with a heavy, true-to-size Neodymium magnet powered by a USA-Made CineMag transformer to deliver true-to-vintage tone with added durability. Weighing in at over six pounds and including a Star-Quad shielded Gotham XLR cable connector and embroidered case, all of these components come together to revive a classic mic with a premium, vintage build.

Hand-Tested In Austin, TX: Like all Warm Audio gear, every single WA-44 is meticulously hand-tested and inspected by trained technicians with a passion for making music in Austin, TX USA.
