The WA273 Dual Channel British Mic Preamplifier from Warm Audio is a “Desert Island” boutique preamp, but it can also be classified as a studio and live work-horse. Classic '73-style preamps are known for being versatile tools that work with all kinds of microphones from Condenser, to Dynamic, to Ribbon. The WA273 is faithful to the early British designs, using tantalum and polystyrene capacitors in the signal path and an output transistor choice that is much smoother in the high gain settings.

The WA273 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 transformer balanced signal path, there’s no recording, mixing or engineering task that the WA273 can’t handle.
