Warm Audio WA-2A
The goal behind the Warm Audio WA-2A was to bring the sound of the classic ‘2A style compressors to a more affordable price range. The unit features scouted tubes, meaning users can change them with other tubes for their own custom sound.
Additionally, all the classic controls are there: limit/compress, meter, peak reduction, and output gain all have dedicated front panel controls for effortless tweakability.
