Warm Audio WA-2MPX Dual-Channel Tube Microphone Preamp. The Warm Audio WA-2MPX is a dual-channel authentic reproduction of the most revered microphone tube preamp that pioneered the birth of rock'n' roll & radio-ready hits. During the golden-era of tape recording, this style of vintage tube preamp became the signature sound in the signal chain of hit recordings including Elvis Presley, Les Paul, and Bing Crosby - and is a sound that is still pursued by today's biggest artists. With premium components, true-to-original circuit design, and tape saturation control, the WA-MPX authentically reproduces all the analog tone of the original to bring vintage warmth and color to your sound.Based on the 351-style tube preamplifier found in American tape machines that pioneered the birth of rock'n' roll & radio-ready hits.
