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 (:

This microphone is gorgeous, sonically and visually. Thus far I've used it on the resonant head of a kick, as a mono overhead, and on vocals. I normally prefer ribbons on most sources, but the SA47F has incredible detail and range without being fatiguing. It even shipped fast!

The Stam SA-47F is a fantastic mic. This exceeded our expectations. The sound is full and clear with a great low end. We use this on kick, vocals and guitar through the Stam 1073MPA. It just sounds correct - and musical. We usually combine this mic (outside) with a D6 (inside) the kick. Just ordered another one too. I can't think of a more solid investment.

Things we love: The sturdy build and heft, decent shock mount system, sound quality especially the way it handles the kick drum, its musicality and usefulness on many sources.

Thanks Stam!

An incredible microphone! When received, the capsule was loose and needed to be repaired. Send it back to Chile!??! Nope!!! Josh has service facilities set up in the USA that repaired the mic and got it back to me -within one week!!! No worries in getting Stam products serviced!!!
Of course this U47FET sounds incredible on kick drums & bass cabinets. Recently it was tried on an upright bass, musically articulate is what comes to mind. Wondering how long it will take to get my second SA U47FET!!!

I have had several microphones in my life, from an Nt1 to a Slate VMS. With all I had achieved acceptable results but the Stam 47F is in another league, its construction is made to last a lifetime and I could notice that since I received the package. But what is really impressive is its sound, definition, presence and everything that contributes to what I record makes me think that it has been the best purchase I have ever made!

A few days ago I had to travel to record a singer and I could not take the 1073MPA with me, so I decided to try the Universal Audio Avalon 737 Plugin ... When I made it sound and heard the first notes I could not believe it, really this mic is very versatile. Thanks Josh and the entire Stam team for making pieces with this incredible quality.

Cheers from Santiago de Chile!

I have been using my SA47f for a while now and I'm still impressed every time.

I haven't used the original Neumann, but this fulfills everything i've heard about them. It is very solid feeling when you pick it up and has an air of quality about it.

Sources with lots of low end come out full and phat, but still retain clarity. I use it mainly on outside kick/front of kit, bass cab and acoustic bass, and it sounds amazing. I'm sure it would be great on certain voices as well.

I purchased this via ebay and it arrived in just over a week (it was in stock).

Excellent value for money and would not hesitate to buy it again (not that i will get rid of mine)

Thanks Stam!!
