I don't know why you had to lie. Just being mum about it would be enough. Just saying, we all saw you lie to our faces on an internet forum...

Before insulting somebody and calling them a liar you should check the picture properly

My entire statement is true. It was a black SA47 (or SA57, a special custom SA47). We had not announced an the SA-800 at the time and they have completely different head baskets. The later being a custom made drawing to match the look of the original.

You came here to post a lie to instigate. Basically trolling.

I hope you can find something better to do you with your time.

Original picture of alleged SA-800:



Actual SA-800:



SA-47:



Do I need to overlay them in photoshop? What are we arguing about here?

Check the logo on the head-basket in the non SA-800 mic.

And... most importantly. Inside that black mic was a SA47 PCB and a K47 capsule with a custom transformer. I still have the files of that day's shootout.

Why would I not say "Yes, that is a Sony replica I am working on, more info soon". Why would I be interested in lying about something so irrelevant ?

I'm also one of the original 100 preorders and I can't wait to receive mine as I spoke with Josh a week ago and was told It should expect shipping within 2 weeks as of Thursday. I was also curious originally why there was a switch from the Heiserman k67 to the Tim Cambpell K67 to the Braingasm K67 but after doing some extensive reading on the 3 I have found A LOT of praise for the braingasm capsules. Needless to say, I'm very excited to finally receive the SA-800 and if I like it as much as I anticipate I will, I'll be pre-ordering a 251 next.

Here for the gear
Hopefully some user feedback soon ...

I've been putting together a fairly high end home studio based primarily on Gearslutz opinions and reviews.

For vocals I purchased a Neve 1073SPX, Tube-Tech CL1B, (2) Rupert Neve Portico II Channels, Universal Audio 1176LN & AudioScape LA2A Clone.

The one item I've hesitated buying is the Sony C800G. I did purchase a Manley Ref C.

I haven't used anything yet - just gathering dust at this point, but hopefully not for long.

Nonetheless I keep thinking about the Sony C800G. Last year B&H carried the C800G for $8,900 brand new, no tax. Now in 2020 B&H no longer carries the mic and other retailers are asking the typical $9,900 + tax so it is more dire than before.

The STAM SA-800 has seemed very promising for a long time and it will be great to finally get user feedback.

Perhaps I'll be adding it to my collection of dust gathering equipment LOL.

Everything’s looking good so far. Mic feels very heavy and quality. Power supply was set at 230V instead of 115v even though I’m in the states. So if you get one you should make sure you’re set at the right voltage for your country. A bit disappointed the shock mount is silver for a black mic. I’ll be replacing that with something that looks better. Any suggestions for good black shockmounts?

Thanks for the pictures!
We always send all units at 230V for obvious reasons regardless of the destination.
You can't damage it when set at 230V

Good point about the schock mount, maybe on a next batch I can request it in black

Enjoy it!!!

Ok didn’t know about it being safer in 230V. I’ll be testing it out today!

First review is by Jay Goodman who has been on this forum for many years.
He had to create a new account as he had trouble login in into his for some reason

You can take them seriously

I'm sure they joined to post reviews ... they seem fine to me. Either way, I have one on order, I will post reviews when I get it.

Ive got SA87, SA47fet, SA-EQP1 x2, Stamchild, SA-1073EQ and they all rule, so I have no doubt this mic will too

Apparently you didn't read my explanation about Jay. You are free to contact our old forum member.

Or maybe you did and you just want to be negative and sarcastic as always

I really don't appreciate what you are implying here but suit yourself.
