Warm Audio’s best-selling WA-8000 offers the company’s take on Sony’s modern classic large-diaphragm valve capacitor mic, the C-800G. They have now announced the upcoming launch of the Limited Edition Gold WA-8000, which, perhaps unsurprisingly, is a limited edition version that sports a striking all-gold finish.

Warm Audio Limited Edition Gold WA-8000 Sony C-800G inspired microphone The new WA-8000 is finished with a nickel plating mixed with real gold.The new version features all of the same carefully selected components as the standard model, with an all-brass K67-style capsule and Lundahl transformer joined by a NOS (new old stock) 6AU6 valve — which is housed in a custom external mount. The microphone promises to deliver the natural, open high-frequency characteristics and mid-range clarity associated with the model that inspired it, providing users with a great ‘all-rounder’ choice vocal and acoustic instruments.

The Limited Edition Gold W-8000 will come supplied in a hard carrying case with an shockmount, external power supply and power cables.
