Vintage u47 Microphone


We are proud to introduce the Stam Audio SA-47FET, an exact replica of the vintage Neumann U47 FET microphone. By strictly following the original schematic and using premium components we have managed to recreate the wide dynamic range, detailed sound and huge headroom of the original that has been used as the industry standard for kick drums, bass and vocals by the most respected engineers over the past 40 years.


Since the capsule and transformer represent 90% of the microphone's tone, we decided to take extra care and use the best components available. After auditioning all combinations of capsules and transformers, we found we could get the closest to the sound of the original 47-Fet, with the Swiss-made Maiku K47 and the US-made Cinemag CM-13101 transformer. The very high sound quality of both these components, along with premium polystyrene and tantalum capacitors, make this microphone ideal for percussion, kick drums, bass and vocals. Like the original, the Stam 47F can capture powerful sounds with fidelity, and no distortion.


Stam Audio Engineering products are about sound quality first and foremost. Every component of every single unit is premium quality and carefully selected to ensure our units match or even surpass the quality of high end boutique-gear.

So when you see the price for the SA-47F your first thought will probably be: “how is this possible?”

We have made the bold decision to bypass distributors and retailers and use the typical 30% margin on quality components. Whilst we inherit a slightly smaller reach without distribution, we conversely can afford to have a large budget for parts, allowing us to build a better product at a better price than any alternative offerings across all of our product range. Better components mean better recordings.

That said, how much will a SA-47F set you back?

The stock price for the SA-47F is $790.00

Right now, if you put a $200 deposit down to preorder your unit you will get the discounted price of $690.00 with a remaining balance of $490.00 before shipping.

However, if you’ve never touched the original before, as gear-lovers ourselves we understand that the only way to really know if a piece of gear is for you, is to put it through its paces.That’s why the SA-47F comes with a 30-day money back guarantee.
