We have added a mod, and removed some mods...


Many people have asked me if I will offer a mod for the WA-CX12, and the answer is yes. We have finally had some time to take one apart and see what we liked and see what we didn't like. There's a bit of both, and we came up with a sensible set of things we could improve upon which will greatly improve the longevity and sonics of the mic without breaking the bank.


We removed the SM57/58 mod and the mod for the original WA-87 and the mod for the PreSonus LDC mic. Even though I truly believe in these mods; they really were not very profitable and more done as a public service. As time as become a commodity I am just running out of these days, I have had to shorten the menu.


We are slowly gearing the company towards its next phase, which will be more centered on boutique mic manufacturing and less on mods and upgrades, so there will be more changes in the near future and more news I will be able to discuss in more detail soon.


Stay tuned!

Have you all considered modding the WA87 R2 or any of their outboard gear? I got my MK1 WA12 Preamp and WA76 Compressor modded by Revive Audio - and it immediately made my home studio in a semi-treated enclosure sound like 70% of a professional studio. No hissing. Crispy punch. Warner sound with better headroom. It was crazy. I feel like with your expertise, you'd do wonders. The EQPWA has a stinky high end that could use some love... and a muddy low.

Hi Nad, thanks for writing. I agree with you on that. I did actually used to offer a mod for the original WA-87 (mk1) that makes it way fuller, more lifelike, cleaner, clearer, less 'plastic' and veiled sounding, etc. Just shipped out a pair of those. It's a very thorough rebuild. I stopped offering it a while back because the demand wasn't very high. I never offered a mod for the Rev2 and probably never will. Couple of reasons... I didn't develop that one (I was the developer of the Rev 1, the 251, the 47, and co-developer on the the 414 and the KM84), and secondly the Rev 2 87 incorporates quite a number of the mods I imple…
