Product Description

I hate to say it, but this thing really sounds good and warm. One of the best values on the market.

Warm Audio WA12 Classic API 312 Style Preamp

3 years ago Bryce Young set out to create a top-notch preamp every musician could afford. Not just a fancy chassis or shiny tubes but something that would actually sound great, something that would transform average mics and instruments into world-class tone. He's built gear for high-end studios for years—cutting corners for this project was not an option.

The WA12 is designed at the quality level of everything else Ive built. Its truly exceptional. The WA12 holds its ground next to pres 4-5 times its price.

Is this possible? Yes. A bold claim? Absolutely. A lie? Nope. I can honestly say that they have created an industry-changing piece of gear. Say goodbye to the $1,000 glass ceiling and say hello to the WA12. The first fully-professional, transformer-balanced mic pre, with the beautiful character and mojo of some of the greatest classics….all at one ridiculous price.
Take a listen. Be amazed.

The Warm Audio WA12 is based on the Classic 312 style preamp and uses unique component choices that give it a very warm, exciting, opulent tone. The WA12 uses more unique and expensive component choices than many pricier models. You will be hard pressed to find anything as good under $1,000, and many will enjoy it more than $2,000+ pieces.
All component choices have been carefully selected and some even customized. Everything passes the golden ear test.
