EXPLORE THE WARM AUDIO WA73-EQ
Warm Audio has once again knocked it out of the park with their amazing and affordable pieces of quality studio gear that make the most iconic pieces of recording gear available to everyone. The WA73-EQ is a single-channel preamp and EQ reverse engineered from Neve’s legendary 1073. The British sound that helped shape the history of recorded music is now more accessible than ever! The WA73-EQ is the product of meticulous research and tests, using high-quality components such as tantalum and polystyrene capacitors, custom Carnhill Transformers, and Blore Edwards UK made dual-concentric EQ pots. The entire signal path is wired and assembled by hand to ensure a quality design that’s true to the original without sacrificing the Warm Audio philosophy of accessibility for all.
Shape your signal with three bands of classic inductor EQ along with an inductor based low-cut filter. The filter cutoff is switchable between 50, 80, 160, and 300Hz for total tonal flexibility. The low frequency EQ band is a shelving filter, with steps at 35, 60, 110, and 220Hz. The mid band is a bell shape with frequency choices of 360Hz, 700Hz, 1.6kHz, 3.2kHz, 4.8kHz, and 7.2kHz. Lastly, the high shelf can be set to begin boosting at 10kHz, with additional points at 12kHz and 16kHz, further expanding the sonic potential of this EQ. Apart from being incredibly flexible and able to accommodate for any microphone and room, the possibilities for tone are infinite, derived from one of the most desired EQs in the world.
