Stam Audio SA-47F
If you’re looking for the classic tone of arguably the best kick drum condenser, ever, then you gotta get this mic. The low end is magical and is really beefing up the tone and Sonics of my kick drums. Also fantastic on male vocals. Highly recommended.

The SA-47 fet mic and the SA-76 compressor finally arrived and they sound absolutely fantastic. Did a vocal recording with a female singer and the mic just nailed it! She was so happy with the accurate representation of her voice - you guys did an amazing job!!! Thank you!! This is my new desert island mic!

SA-47F truly captures the soul and vibe of the original. It has incredible lows on kick without being overly hyped. After testing on vocals and electric guitar I can truly say Josh and his team at Stam Audio knocked this one out of the park. It's clean and detailed but has just hint of that transformer color without being too much of anything. Balance!

Can't beat the SA-47F. Just do yourself a favor and buy one...

Wonderful microphone. As expected from a U47FET clone, the lows are great: works very well on a bass cab for example. The highs are quite smooth as well, but still very detailed. I've attached two videos I made demonstrating the mic on bass cab and a 12 string acoustic guitar.

The build quality feels very solid as well, and the shockmount is also very good and sturdy: Way better than the shockmount that comes with the AKG 414 for example. Would have been nice if it came in a box like the other Stam microphones, but for this price, I'll get my own flightcase (:
