Warm Audio WA73EQ 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 WA73 offers true ’73-style tone and operation at a user-friendly price.  Available in single- and dual-channel versions (with and without EQ), these WA73 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 WA73 can’t handle.
