I should clarify before this goes any further that we have not announced a Sony C800G replica.

This is a black version of the SA-47 body.

We have other priorities right now and not a lot of time on our hands.

Thanks for sharing this

thank you for confirming. I thought this one's your take on a 800G because of the headgrille and the color of the mic body.

That price is pretty hard to swallow. With modeling mics like the Slate VMS and Townsend Sphere, any microphone over say $600 is a hard sell these days.

I know the real deal costs around $9,000+ but still...records aren't exactly selling like they used to in 2019!

the price seems legit to me, as long as the mic sounds the part and delivers. the AA C800T is about the same $

Modelling mics sound nothing like a good clone, much less a real one

The differences are substantial and there are many reasons why ...

I am starting to feel bad, because i ordered the cm800t recently, and the sa-800 looks awesome, and seems to be top quality, i need to go back to AA website to compare the components...

one has to be careful not to fall into those shootouts. yes, sometimes they can be helpful, but mics are mainly meant for recording music, not to listen to them in shootouts.

Why is the case, taxes? The conversion is roughly 700Euro for the AA and you buy direct from them?

I don't understand, when you record to a mic you record a file and you listen to it so you know how it sounds no ?

oh my.... yes, you are correct. recordings of single snare shots and solo vocals is going to give you a basic idea of a microphones sound. but once you have said mic in your room, maybe even on your own voice, stacking multiple recordings ... only THEN you know whats up. i have made decisions based on shoot outs which i have deeply regretted.

The AA CM800T is an exceptionally good mic and replica of the Sony 800G, and the price point is incredible! I have one as well! I'm sure the Stam one will sound great too..they both use the K67 capsules.. But back to the Stam SA-800

You mean k67 ? You right about that but they are not the same, it's hand made in america, i think the cm800t has a chinese capsule . Oh you have one ? Nice ! You should create a thread / review ( if you want ofc) for people who would like to hear more about it mate. Because there is not that much about this mic on this gearslutz... Even for me i would be glad. Yeah back to the new bro, the sa-800 ! ( sorry for the off topic).
