Vintage u47 Microphone


The SA-47 is an exact replica of the most revered vocal tube microphone in history, the Neumann U47. With the aid of a Telefunken-Siemens EF800 NOS tube, Dany Bouchard’s D7 capsule and a AMI BV08 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 D7. Unlike other similar offerings that feature M7 capsule replicas these are 100% hand made by Dany Bouchard in Canada and are professionally skinned with DuPont Mylar.

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 well as NOS Telefunken tube reducing noise and the output impedance to give this microphone the true character of an original U47 microphone.


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.


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.
