In my never-ending quest to get a passable Neumann U87 clone, I got a Warm Audio WA-87 a few months back. It is a GREAT microphone for acoustic guitar and mono drum overhead, and very decent on vocals. I haven't tried it on anything else, but I assume it would be totally fine on electric or bass guitar. It's definitely not a U87 (I happened to pick one of those up too a couple of weeks back :w00t: :w00t: :w00t: ), but might be my favorite acoustic guitar mic that I've used.
That’s good to know, I assume those are somewhat new? I’ve read a lot of good things about some of Warm’s other stuff. .

If I ever seem to get off my ass and start recording again, and decide to buy any new mics, I’ll look at that one, as well as some of the others mentioned. I have 7 that are doing jackshit at the moment.

It's a boost booster, to boost your boost - it makes your tone much muchier.
