      Hey, David! Are you planning on going to Nashville in June?

  5. Jason Davenport says:

    That sounds great Warren! Vocals weren’t bad either 🙂 Picked up a Lewitt 440 Pure, really enjoying that mic, sounded great with the 1173!

    1. Warren Huart says:

      Wonderful @plap-disqus-1aab7baa714e14868fe9eac65fcbd315:disqus! Yes, all of the vocals and drums were done with the Lewitt 440 Pure!

    Great video and the equipment is spot on.
    Well done Warren.
    What is your opinion of the dbx 286s?
    At $200 you really can’t compare the two, but for someone on a budget is it a way to go?

    1. Warren Huart says:

      Hi @disqus_RRxDO8t8wl:disqus!! Wonderful stuff! Yes the dbx286s are great affordable pieces!

  7. Billy McCormack says:

    Love this! I think you got it right on with this product, it sounds amaznig, and can I just say it was a real pleasure to watch you at work in your element! If I wasn’t several thousand miles away I’d love to do some tracking at Spitfire! Maybe someday!

    1. Warren Huart says:

      Thanks ever so much @billy_mccormack:disqus!! I really appreciate it! We’d love to have make some music over here!

      1. Billy McCormack says:

        I’d love to! And just to clarify, by thousands of miles I meant that I live on the east coast of Canada in beautiful Prince Edward Island,only 3559 miles but still it’s pretty far 🙂

        1. Warren Huart says:

          Very nice @billy_mccormack:disqus!!

  8. Ray Ferry says:


    I’m impressed that you did this! It’s really awesome saucy..! Thank you for realizing how untouchable some equipment can be for most home studio guys n girls.. I’m in dude!!


    1. Warren Huart says:

      Thanks ever so much @rayferry:disqus!!

  9. Awesomesauce!! A perfect outboard piece before going in-the-box.

    1. Warren Huart says:

      Thanks very much @plap-disqus-9efb1a59d7b58e69996cf0e32cb71098:disqus!!

  10. Dima Kazantsev says:

    Warren, thank you for this great video. It is very inspiring. The device is awesome!!!

    1. Warren Huart says:

      Thanks ever so much @dima_kazantsev:disqus!! So glad you enjoyed it!

  11. Very intriguing piece of gear! There’s a chance it will be distributed in Italy also?

  12. L Scott Knight says:

    So very awesome. I was going to ask you about this at NAMM. So is it displayed at the Vintage King booth? Or at BAE? I guess I look both places. I’m excited for you.

  13. JWunderli says:

    Just curious as to the components that are in the 1173 – input and output transformers and such??? Love the idea and from what I can tell over YouTube, it sounds great.

  14. Ron Kolpak says:

    1. Another fantastic vocal performance by our talented and fearless leader. Bravo!

    2. Thank you so much for the demo of this highly anticipated piece of gear. A 1073 and 1176 in one box is fantastic! Not only will I be getting one, but I’ll be recommending it to the guys in my band. Seriously, if you are only doing vocals, guitar, or bass, this is an amazing place to start if your looking to get into professional level gear. Drummers should buy four. (-;

    3. For the future development suggestion box: 312/160, 1073/160, 312/1176. Why not?

    Thanks so much, Warren! Hoping to see you and the gang in June.

  15. Mark says:

    Fantastic Warren, I’m gonna check this out at SX Pro up the road when they arrive 🙂
