  • Warm Audio WA-84

    The mighty Neumann KM-84... practically everybody who has ever used them loves them, but they've been discontinued since 1992, and like nearly all things vintage Neumann, they're far from inexpensive, even when you can find a good one for sale. Because of the barriers of high price and limited availability, the subject of "what's a new mic that sounds similar to the '84?" often comes up on various recording forums...

    Warm Audio, those purveyors of classic premium studio gear at project studio prices have taken a crack at making a recreation of this classic design. How close did they come to the mic that inspired them? For that, you'll need to check out my full review, which you'll find right here.

    And as always, if you have any questions or comments about the microphone, please feel free to post them here.
