The Tone Beast is a great mic pre with loads of gain that can effortlessly capture an array of sources very well. With top notch CineMag transformers and multiple discrete signal paths, its hard to beat its big, bold, fully-professional sound at its price.

The Tone Beast is a mic pre that likes to be pushed and when pushed will colourise your signal ever so sweetly. The 2 opamps and 2 output transformers at the flip of their switches will not appear to be much different, but as one drives the pre into harmonic distortion, the unique character of each of these components becomes apparent. Additionally the Tone Beast is customizable and allows for other opamps to be sourced and easily swapped into the unit. I have pulled my best tones from this pre right at the saturation point (as loud as I can push the gain before clipping). The output control on the TB12 allows you to limit the signal exiting the preamp even when pushing the gain to really hot levels, giving you maximum control.

Features:
* Discrete 312 preamp design with coupled CineMag Transformers
* 71db of gain
* Transformer selection provides both Steel and 50% Nickel CineMag output transformers for varying character
* Transformer bypass switch allows for removal of the output transformer from the circuit
* Discrete Opamp selection provides both the classic 1731(vintage) and 918(cleaner) style opamps. These are socketed/swappable with your choice of 2520 6 pin footprint opamps.
* Impedance switch labeled TONE to switch between 150 and 600 ohms input impedance
* Capacitor selection between Tantalum and Electrolytic for different characters
* 80hz hipass filter
* Polarity Reverse
* +48V phantom power
* Output attenuation allowing for saturation flexibility of both the opamps and transformers
* ¼" insert for the use of inline compressors, EQs etc.
* Balanced XLR mic (front and back), balanced TRS line, and ¼" instrument inputs
* Balanced XLR and TRS outputs
* -20db Pad
* LED VU Meter
* 19" rackmountable
* External line-lump 24V AC power transformer for low noise

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.

If you are looking for a preamp to improve and shape your signal you will most definitely love the WA12 MKII. The WA12 MKII is designed to transform plain instruments and vocals into exciting tone. If your mixes lack depth, struggle to sound alive, or are just missing that professional touch you’ve always wanted, there is a good chance you will love the WA12 MKII.

The WA12 MKII is a completely discrete, high voltage, dual-transformer microphone preamplifier designed for high gain (+71dB), high headroom, low noise, and an exciting sonic performance – great for all types of recording applications. A high quality mic preamp is one of the most critical pieces needed to achieve the elusive ’larger than life’ sound, and the WA12 MKII is more than capable of delivering.

The WA12 MKII is based around a discrete op-amp, the X731, which is our own reproduction of the vintage classic Melcor 1731, considered by some to be the warmer predecessor to the modern 2520-style op-amp. The X731 can achieve vibrant, clean and lifelike tones; but can also be driven into mild saturation at much higher gain levels. The effects can be subtle, but very pleasing to the ear. The WA12 MKII can also accept any discrete op-amp on the market which conforms to the +/-16v, 2520 pinout standard.

Features:
• Utilizes premium grade input and output USA CineMag transformers.
• 71db of Gain, fully discrete signal path.
• Utilizes a discrete 6-pin socketed 1731 style opamp. Can be replaced with other 6-pin "2520 foot-print" opamps for varying tone/flavor.
• TONE button – Switches the input impedance from 600 ohms to 150 ohms. Changes the tone of both the mic and HI-Z inputs.
• 2 Meg Ohm True HI-Z input on front panel. Sends instrument signal through entire circuit including both Cinemag Transformers and the discrete opamp. Great for guitars, bass, keyboards and other instruments that have a 1/4″ output jack.
• Mic level balanced input: XLR.
• Balanced outputs: XLR and 1/4″/TRS.
• 48 volt Phantom Power.
• Output attenuation control (after the CineMag output transformer) allows for driving the preamp and transformers into saturation.
• LED Meter gain indication.
• 20db pad.
• External power plug.

The WA-412 provides 4 channels of classic American console preamps in a sleek 1RU design. This style of preamp is often referred to as "the sound of Rock n Roll" for its BIG punchy low end and smooth open top end. The price/performance ratio of the WA-412 is almost unfathomable to the experienced studio engineer who has possibly paid much more for preamps of this style during their career. Featuring fully discrete socketed 6-pin opamps and custom wound Altran USA input and output transformers, the WA-412 leaves nothing to be desired. If you are looking for multiple channels of world class tone in an affordable package, the WA-412 is the right choice for you.

The WA-412 has all of the features one would expect from this style of preamp... and more. Output Trim has been added to every channel for precise control and creative gain structuring. We also added a Tone switch (transformer input impedance) to each channel, which allows you to choose the warm and punchy classic console tone, or a more open & neutral sound.

Better components.
Each channel utilizes a fully discrete socketed 6-pin opamp that can be swapped with other opamps. Discrete opamp circuitry is known for its high headroom and low distortion characteristics and has much to do with the coveted sound of these classic console preamps.

We are proud to be using input and output transformers that are made in the USA by high-end transformer manufacturer, Altran. We worked closely with Altran to create unique transformers that extend the low frequency response of the design. The transformers also use a vintage winding technique that produces a very distinct smooth & open character.

Carefully choosing the WA-412 components has resulted in an amazing four channel workhorse preamp/DI that performs at the highest levels, while still adding a touch of vintage console magic to your signal.

FEATURES:
• 4 Channel Microphone Preamplifier + Instrument DI
• Fully discrete, transformer coupled, through-hole component topology
• Altran USA custom wound, premium input and output transformers
• X520 discrete op-amp in every channel, socketed for convenience. Can be user-replaced with most 6 pin, discrete op-amps for varying flavor & tone
• 65db of gain
• Inputs - Microphone XLR & Active Instrument 2Meg ohm HI-Z
• Outputs - Transformer balanced XLR & TRS
• TONE button – Input impedance switches from 600 ohms to 150 ohms (affects the tone of both the mic and HI-Z inputs)
• -20db pad - pads both mic and instrument DI inputs
• Self noise: <-90dB (nominal)
• Frequency response: 20hz to 20khz <+/-0.25dB (TONE button out), 20hz to 20khz +/-2dB (TONE button in)
• +48 volt phantom power
• LED metering
• Output trim knob for precise level control and tone sculpting
• Internal power supply (grounded, 3 pin IEC cord)

Hand Wired & Hand Assembled:
Classic ’73-style preamps were often hand-wired and so is the WA73! Guru’s claim that a portion of the sought after classic British 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.

UK Custom Carnhill Transformers:
Enthusiasts unequivocally get excited about the components used in classic ’73-style British preamps. The signal transformers are a common topic of conversation. Vintage units used various versions of transformers throughout the years, but the most coveted were the earliest versions. These are regarded as the most desirable choice due to their fluid and forgiving nature. They saturate sweetly when pushed, and have been known to make engineers cry when they hear how beautiful their mixes sound through them! Warm Audio worked closely with Carnhill Transformers of Cambridgeshire, UK, to design faithful reproductions of these most coveted, early version transformers. We at Warm Audio have not yet heard a modern day ’73-style preamp sound as sweet and musical as does our WA73 with these beautiful custom Transformers.

Capacitors & Signal Path:
An important part of classic British tone not often discussed are the different styles of capacitors and output transistor used in ’73-style circuits. We found it important to maintain integrity to early British designs by using tantalum and polystyrene capacitors in the signal path and an output transistor choice that is much smoother in the high gain settings than what is typically found in modern ’73-style preamps.
