A legendary mic, reborn.

Faithfully recreating one of the most in-demand, balanced and natural-sounding tube condenser microphones ever made, the Warm Audio WA-CX12 is ideal for capturing virtually any sound source with extreme accuracy. With decades of use in the world’s top studios and by some of the world’s greatest engineers and artists, the original microphone stood out as open, airy and natural.
