Warm Audio WA12 Classic 312 Style Preamp
Three years ago Warm Audio set out to create a top-notch preamp every musician could afford. Not just a fancy chassis or shiny tubes but something that would actually sound great, something that would transform average microphones and instruments into world-class tone. Warm Audio has built gear for high-end studios for years-cutting corners for this project was not an option. The WA12 is designed at the quality level of everything else they have built. It's truly exceptional. The Warm Audio WA12 holds its ground next to preamps 4-5 times its price.
Take a listen. Be amazed.
