    Warm Audio WA73 1 Channel British Mic Pre

    2 In Stock


    The WA73 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 and a fully discrete Carnhill Transformer balanced signal path, there’s no recording, mixing or engineering task that the WA73 can’t handle. The classic 1073 was hand-wired and so is the WA73!  Guru’s claim that a portion of the 1073’s classic tone can be attributed to the hand-wired nature of the build.  The WA73 is hand-wired and hand assembled, including the pcb components that are all populated by hand.
