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. Many of the Super clean designs of today tend to leave the the signal exiting the preamp sounding much the same as it did entering it.

I personally like to use preamps that make my signal sound different than it did entering the pre. I like preamps that shape my tone with warmth, character and vibe. If you are looking for a preamp to improve and shape your signal you will most definitely love the WA12. The WA12 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 youve always wanted, there is a good chance you will love the WA12.

I've had this device for about 8 months now. Couldn't ask for more. A good replacement for any professional sounding equipment. I've used countless different preamps and for the price, this is by far the best you'll get.

I bought this preamp with very high expectations... AND I WAS STILL BLOWN AWAY! This preamp sounds absolutely incredible. I could not recommend it more.

very good so far. have been using it for recording two multi-track songs. very easy to use and you can really feel the difference when you start using it. the only bad thing is that there is only one input.
