The company's two flagship mics - the Wasaphone I and the Wasarocket are popular with musicians and studio professionals all about the place, due to their uncanny ability to dirty any live or studio setup faster, and more effectively than ever before.

Wasaphone I
It was a phone. Now, it's an evocative, multi-purpose microphone that will bring a slice of lo-fi grit to your recordings and live setup.

Each one is built by hand and although similar, each one is intrinsically unique. Reminiscent of carbon dust microphones featured in early 20th century recordings, the mic has an unmistakable tape-like warmth you won't find on any DAW plugin or filter.


Frequency Range: 200Hz - 2kHz

Type: Cardioid

Dimensions: 88mm x 62mm

This is a truly unique lo-fi microphone that will explode in your ears.
