"It doesn’t matter if I’m in a recording studio, bedroom, outside on the side of a mountain or cathedral. Warm Audio’s gear has always met the expectations and provided what I needed at a cost that wasn’t breaking the bank." Jonathan Pfarr - (Kanye West, Imagine Dragons, Paul McCartney & Shangri-La Studios)
"As a collector of vintage gear, there is a list of extremely sought-after EQs and compressors that everybody wants, but few can afford. Warm Audio was the first manufacturer that made compressors and EQ that worked the same way as the expensive models, yet cost a fraction of the price. Many other manufacturers have since followed suit, but Warm Audio still does it best. I will always lean on the Warm Audio devices when I see them in the studio rack." Sylvia Massy - (SYSTEM OF A DOWN, RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS, SMASHING PUMPKINS, TOM PETTY, JOHNNY CASH)
“Warm Audio has made it possible to own timeless studio gear that not only looks and feels classic, but is reliable and affordable… And sounds killer too!” Nickolas Wheeler - (All American Rejects)
"When I first dialed in the new gear I received from Warm Audio, I was blown away. You just can't help but notice how big and full everything sounds in the room." Ryan Bingham
"Overall, these mics have upgraded the drum sound in a massive way. In the 18 years we’ve been in our own studio the drums have never sounded this good!" Jimmy Eat World
