Overview

The Warm Audio WA-412 is a four channel mic pre based on a classic American console preamp design, with discrete electronics and a lightning-fast, punchy sound. In addition to your standard mic pre features, the WA-412 adds an output trim and a "Tone" switch, which changes up the input impedance for a different sound. The discrete op-amps and Altran transformers give the WA-412 a clear tonality with tons of headroom, making it a great choice for drums, bass and electric guitars. If you're in need of a bank of mic inputs without breaking the bank, you need to try the Warm Audio WA-412

First: Do not believe the marketing, these do not sound like API preamps. This unit was purchased when I wanted 4 more channels …

  • Don't be afraid of this pre! It is your friend!

    Verified Purchase

    This is the first piece from Warm Audio that I have tried so far, as I am admittedly a bit of a snob, so I was a little nervous going into this, having been less than satisfied with most "clones" on the market in the past. Plus, Warm's previous bright orange color scheme just put me off for whateve…

  • Great Pre, Even better Price

    My experience with this pre was, in an instant, great. I think I test audio gear more than I record. Ripped open the box super excited about hearing this API'ish sound. I am a drummer first so the promise of bigger, fatter drum tracks was more than enough to push me to purchase. Ironically, the v…
