Original Version Warm WA12 500 On Sale!

A lot of preamps on the market do a good job of raising the volume of mics and instruments. Unfortunately, many pres are doing only that, raising volume. The 'super clean' designs of today often leave the signal exiting the preamp sounding much the same as it did entering it.

The Warm Audio WA12-500 mic preamp/D.I. brings classic discrete console tones to your 500 Series rack at an amazing price. Based on the api 312 design, with custom Cinemag transformers, high-voltage discrete op amp, and a handy impedance/tone switch labeled Tone on the front panel. The impedance selects between 600 to 150 ohms, resulting in a warmer tone from both the mic and Hi-Z inputs. The WA12-500 has more than enough gain for your lowest output dynamic and ribbon microphones and all the headroom you'd ever want for the hottest modern condenser mics with 48v phantom powering.
