Warm Audio WA73 - Single-Channel British-Style Mic Pre
Taking orders now for February delivery!

Engineers and producers universally list the classic 1073 as a favorite, go-to mic pre. Now Warm Audio has painstakingly recreated these original British benchmark performers in their affordable WA73 Series—preamps available with and without EQ—using custom UK-made transformers and pots, tantalum and polystyrene capacitors, all hand-wired and hand-assembled to help you get the biggest, smoothest sound out of any mic.

The WA73 Series includes:

  •   WA73 - Single-channel mic pre
  •   WA73-EQ - Single-channel mic pre with classic ’73-style EQ
  •   WA273 - Dual-channel microphone pre
  •   WA273-EQ - Dual-channel mic pre with classic ’73-style EQ

Real British Components
Warm Audio’s designers worked with Carnhill Transformers in Cambridgeshire, UK, to create faithful reproductions of the original, vintage transformers. Complex dual-concentric switch potentiometers in the EQ sections of the WA273-EQ are also made in the UK by Blore Edwards (serious, military spec suppliers). Every aspect of these units is intended to help you achieve the smoothest, warmest vintage tones from every ribbon, condenser and dynamic mic in your collection.

Warm Audio has made a name by recreating classic gear at affordable prices, and the WA73 series British microphone preamps is only going to add to the company’s reputation—and add to your sound.
