The Neumann U87 is one of the most sought after mics in the recording world but it carries a price tag to match its fame. Warm Audio has used it as the inspiration for its new WA-87 condenser mic, with a cinematic transfomer and custom capsule and despite only being on the market for a month, it’s proving amazingly popular. At a price point of $599 with included shock mount and wooden carrying case it’s not hard to see why!
