Warm Audio has once again knocked it out of the park with their amazing and affordable pieces of quality studio gear that make the most iconic pieces of recording gear available to everyone. The WA-251 is a modern recreation of one of the most famous microphones in history.

Despite its popularity in recording studios, the original 251 was only in production from 1959-1962, making original units in working condition nearly impossible to find. If you can find a fully-functional original, it’s not uncommon for them to sell for over $20,000+. 

Thankfully, Warm Audio has passionately recreated the original circuit design to bring the legendary 251 sound to studios around the world. 

Much of a microphone’s sound comes from the capsule design. The original 251 used the coveted CK12 brass capsule found in the AKG C12 (and early revisions of the 414).

The Warm Audio WA-251 uses the custom WA-12-B-60V capsule, carefully engineered to match the sound of the original CK12 capsule. Just like the original, it uses an all-brass design complemented by a 24k gold-sputtered 6 micron NOS PET mylar diaphragm.

While the capsule provides much of a microphone’s sound, the remainder of the signal path is equally important to ensure no loss of quality as it travels to the preamp.

Warm Audio has given special attention to this to ensure the microphone captures pure, noise-free sound that matches the tone of the original 251. 

With an American made CineMag USA transformer, a carefully chosen Slovak Republic JJ 12AY7 tube, wima film and imported Solen French capacitors and a Gotham Audio cable for the power supply. 

Finally, the WA-251 includes a wooden display box and high-quality shockmount for recording.

  21. Been in the recording industry for over 42 years I’m amazed at the technology that is in the market right now. I own an original 1176 universal audio compressor bought in 1983 still have it did a quick comparison to the warm audios copy of the 1176 I was amazed at how clean the product was. I’m sold on warm audio. Recently purchased their 87 microphone I was shocked at the Quality and presence of the mic. I’m sold on their product. Looking forward to many more purchases from this company.

  22. I own a pair of Warm WA-14’s and WA-84’s and this would make the perfect compliment to those mics in my mic locker. Here’s hoping …!
