    Product Description

    The Tone Beast is a great mic pre with loads of gain that can effortlessly capture an array of sources very well. With top notch CineMag transformers and multiple discrete signal paths, it's hard to beat its big, bold, fully-professional sound at its price.

    The Tone Beast is a mic pre that likes to be pushed and when pushed will colorize your signal ever so sweetly. The 2 opamps and 2 output transformers at the flip of their switches won't appear to be much different, but as one drives the pre into harmonic distortion, the unique character of each of these components becomes apparent. Additionally the Tone Beast is customizable and allows for other opamps to be sourced and easily swapped into the unit.

    Achieve some the best tones from this pre right at the saturation point (as loud as the gain can be pushed before clipping). The output control on the TB12 allows you to limit the signal exiting the preamp even when pushing the gain to really hot levels, giving you maximum control.

    What is your opinion of this product?
    I did a lot of research before finally choosing the WA TB12 and could not be any happier. This is a "do it all" workhorse that is built with quality parts that produces a wide range of tonal options. Warm and vintage tone is what I was looking for and the TB12 delivers it in spades. If a clean sound is what you are looking for, fear not as the TB12 covers that with ease as well. With two Op amps and two transformers, a lot of tonal variations are readily available here. And the Op amps are switchable???? Just crazy at these prices. All in all, a must have for any budget minded studio. I'll be getting another one of these for sure. Superb sound at a superb price!
