Wasaphone microphones are causing a stir in the world of live and studio music production. Our mics are the main source of Lo-Fi audio for an ever-increasing list of prestigious producers, engineers and musicians, including:

Steve Levine - Grammy and Brit Award winning producer (the Clash, Beach Boys, XTC)
Tom Dalgety - Music Producers Guild Breakthrough Producer of the Year 2015 (Royal Blood, Opeth, Turbowolf, Killing Joke)
John Parish - Mercury Prize-winning musician and producer (PJ Harvey, Anna Calvi)
Portishead - Mercury Prize-winning band and architects of the trip-hop genre
Giant Sand - Critically-acclaimed band


Here are a few of the kind words that have been spoken about our products:

"Bags of character. Beautifully hand made...[the Maroc is] a great go-to mic for lo-fi effects."

- Ask Audio

"Steeped in vintage tones...by using the Wasaphone you're likely to get more creative performances, not just creative results."

- Music Tech Mag

"If you're looking for an inexpensive transducer with serious personality and character, this is the mic for you."

- Electronic Musician

"I always put it [MKII] in my mic box now when I’m going places – it’s very, very cool."

- Adrian Utley, Portishead

"Cool, authentic Lo-Fi weirdness"

- Tom Dalgety, Music Producers Guild Breakthrough Producer of the Year 2015

"Got our new Wasaphone I mic yesterday and tried it through a PA - astounding"

- Shireshead Studios

"A must-have for any vocalist or instrumentalist looking to add a unique gritty warmth to their studio and live sound. There really is no other mic around like the Wasaphone."

- Coach House Studios

"The Wasaphone I has happily joined the microphone collection at Wax studio and definitely stands out as the most colourful weapon of the lot! Call it a sonic time machine or a Lo-Fi tone creator. Forget about bass - it's too uncool...instead, welcome presence, distortion and retro flavours! Wicked on vocals, pianos, guitars and basically anywhere a unique vintage twist is needed."

- JB Pilon, Engineer/Producer, Wax Recording Studios



The Wasaphone MKII is at home both in the studio and on the stage, but if you but if you plan to primarily make Wasa-noise in a live band environment where competition for volume is fierce, consider the Wasaphone MKII Live.

By utilising a specialist CB radio capsule in place of vintage telephone components, the MKII Live retains much of the famous Wasaphone character while reducing the risk of feedback, which can sometimes occur given the variable nature of the live situations.

Type: Cardioid
Dimensions: 88mm x 62mm

Mounts onto all standard microphone stands via the brass bracket provided.

I cant say enough great things about Wasaphone. From the look, sound and quality, to the customer service the whole experience was great. You think its gorgeous in the pictures? It's nothing compared to seeing it for real. It looks awesome and sounds even better. Adds tons of character and texture to your voice, and the owner Tom kicks ass. He held my hand and spoon fed me from the UK all the way until it made its way to Canada. Thanks again Tom, keep up the awesome work! -Bryce

I bought this for a lo-fi portable setup. The microphone is light and I like the sound. Thank you.
