The WA-47F is a faithful recreation of a high-SPL, low-noise classic celebrated as a "secret weapon" across world-class studios. The original '47-style FET was released in 1969 and gained massive popularity inside recording studios for its ability to handle fast transients with exceptional detail. Compared to popular tube microphones, the WA-47F has a more pristine top end and a tighter, more controllable bass response. 

Famous artists such as Dave Grohl and Daft Punk used the original 47FET on kick drums, inspiring generations of drummers and engineers. For vocals, legends like David Lee Roth and Michael Stipe used the original to create some of the most beloved music of all time. The WA-47F shares the same sonic profile as that original microphone, making the WA-47F a studio workhorse that will quickly become a go-to mic in your locker.

Like the original, the WA-47F's custom-tuned frequency response captures huge kick drum sounds, punchy guitar & bass cabs, and adds a pristine edge to solo vocals that need to stand out.
