    Warm Audio WA273-EQ Dual Channel Classic 1073 style Preamp with EQ

    3 In Stock

    The WA273-EQ is a “Desert Island” 2 channel boutique preamp-eq, but it can also be classified as a studio and live work-horse.  The classic 1073 was known for being a versatile tool that worked well with all kinds of microphones from Condenser, to Dynamic, to Ribbon.  The WA273-EQ equally shines on all types of microphones and sources including; vocals, acoustic/electric guitars, bass, drums, percussion, orchestras, keyboards, and even as a tone shaping tool to run partial or complete mixes through.  With 80dB of gain, a fully discrete Carnhill Transformer balanced signal path, and versatile 3 band inductor EQ, there’s no recording, mixing or engineering task the WA273-EQ can’t handle.


    The classic 1073 was hand-wired and so is the WA273-EQ.  Guru’s claim that a portion of the 1073’s classic tone can be attributed to the hand-wired nature of the build.  The WA273-EQ is authentically hand-wired and hand assembled, including the pcb components that are all populated by hand.
