Warm Audio Gear Used:
Since the day they arrived at the studio the WA47 and the WA273-EQ’s have been on every one of my sessions.
Tracking vocals with the WA47 microphone thru the WA273-EQ has been such a game changer the presence, and depth from the mic pre, and the character the mic lends to a vocalist is a great combination.
The WA273-EQ’s have definitely become my go to piece for tracking vocals, bass, accordion, and drums. The depth and fullness It adds is a familiar sound we have all heard on many of our favorite records. It is a new spin on a classic piece of gear with a fresh sound that works for the records I make.
The WA273-EQ is such a versatile tool wether I’m tracking thru them for a session or using it to thicken up instruments or vocals during one of my mix sessions. The WA273-EQ is such a versatile tool.
