Discography


I absolutely love my Warm Audio gear! Warm has reinvented vintage-inspired recording and mixing hardware. I use my WA-2A for recording vocals, and the new Bus-Comp stereo VCA compressor and pair of EQP-WA tube equalizers are used on every mix I do. Next up for me is a Warm Audio microphone setup with a WA-47, WA-251, and a pair of WA-84s. All of Warm’s gear is built rock solid, and just sounds amazing. I also appreciate their service and customer care as well. I cannot say enough what a fantastic company Warm Audio is!
