Timeless Sound, Modern Precision

The WA76 features a fully discrete signal path and utilises the original Reichenbach Engineering's - now CineMag - transformer design. Its renowned attack time and characteristic sound have been utilised on countless hit records throughout history. Now, with the WA76, you can achieve that same signature sound in your own productions.
