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 that's 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.
