LEGENDARY MICROHPONE. LEGENDARY PRICE.
The SA-47 is an exact replica of the most revered vocal tube microphone in history, the Neumann u47. With the aid of a twin 6028/408A pentode tube in parralelle, the Heiserman HK47 capsule and the AMI T47 (BV8 replica) output transformer we have managed to gives this replica the true character of an original Neumann u47 at a fraction of the price making it affordable to everyone.
Since the capsule is the single most important component on a microphone’s tone we have decided to make an extra effort and use the best replica available, the HK-47. The Heiserman Audio HK- 47 capsule is based on a 1960's vintage set of original back plates which offers a much more vintage tone than current offerings, it uses brass rings to hold down the Mylar and nylon screws to isolate the capsule halves. Unlike other similar offerings that feature Chinese made capsules these are 100% hand made by Eric Heiserman in the USA and are professionally skinned with DuPont Mylar in Chicago.
The SA-47 features premium capacitors on the audio path as well as polystyrene capacitors, which are more stable and much more linear in the top end making them the perfect choice for feedback circuitry.as well as 2 pentode tubes in paralelle reducing noise and the output impedance to give this microphone the true character of an original u47 microphone.
VINTAGE VS MODERN
We have remained 100% faithful to the original vintage circuit and schematic and have made no compromise in parts which ensures you are get the best sounding microphone possible.
ZERO COMPROMISE. SURPRISINGLY AFFORDABLE.
Stam Audio Engineering products are about sound quality primarily. Every component of every unit is premium quality and carefully selected to ensure our unit’s match or even surpass the quality of high end boutique gear.
So, when you see the price for the SA-47 the first thing you probably think is: how is that possible?
We have made the brave decision to bypass distributors and retailers and use that 30% margin on components. While we can reach less people without distribution we can afford to have a large budget for parts allowing us to build a better product at a better price than any other offerings in all of our product range. Better components mean better recordings.

How about a Stam Audio clone? SA-47 anyone?
They are supposed to be good... but I've learned my lesson not to pre-order. People wait 2 years for those things.
I've been trying this mic out a bit now, and I had it over to a guy with an original U-47 and I'm very pleased after hearing them side by side. The character was essentially identical.
Sure there were some minor differences in the frequency response but I've honestly heard bigger differences...
I received a Stam Audio SA-47 a few days ago and been running some tests in my lab, I own an original 1960 Neumann U-47 microphone in pristine condition and have been able to compare it directly with it.
While I need to run further tests I can say that the SA-47 truly delivers the U47 sound, the...
Reseña para los miembros de Gearslutz hispano hablantes. Soy de Argentina y hace unos días tengo éste micrófono de Stam. Cómo explican en los comentarios anteriores, el micrófono viene muy bien presentado con una valija de viaje y por dentro en una caja de madera, junto con la fuente, cables,...
I've been recording with the Stam Audio SA-47 for the past 3 weeks. I'd like to start by saying the built quality is outstanding. The sound, simply love it. One of the first applications tested was vocals, it was pleasant sounding and sat very well in the mix. I don't have experience with an actual...
