A lot of preamps on the market do a good job of raising the volume of mics and instruments. With modern technology/design many pres are doing just that, raising volume. The often proclaimed “Super clean” designs tend to leave the the signal exiting the preamp sounding much the same as it did entering it.
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 you’ve always wanted, there is a good chance you will love the WA12.
