Warm Audio WA273EQ Single-Channel British Microphone Preamp w/ EQ

It might be too much to call them the “Preamps of the Gods,” but British '73-style preamps are generally considered to be the “Holy Grail” of preamp designs (thanks, Rupert!). Known for their versatility—they work equally well with condenser, dynamic and ribbon mics; with vocals and instruments; for recording and mixing—they truly are “Desert Island” preamps.

The Warm Audio WA273-EQ offers true ’73-style tone and operation, with 3 bands of EQ, at a user-friendly price.  Available in both single- and dual-channel versions (with and without EQ), these WA273-EQ pre’s deliver the same sweet, musical performance as the originals.

With 80dB of gain, fully discrete Carnhill Transformer balanced signal path and hand-wired performance, there’s no recording, mixing or engineering task that the WA273-EQ can’t handle.
