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 for the past 40 years.


Since the capsule is the single most important component on a microphone’s tone we have decided to make an extra effort and offer the Maiku K47 capsules on the SA47F. This handmade capsule in Switzerland is an exact replica of the original K47 capsule based on the FET U47, it uses brass rings to hold down the Mylar and nylon screws to isolate the capsule halves.

It also includes premium output transformer by Cinemag made in the USA, polystyrene and tantalum capacitors as well as a custom-made shock mount. The solid-state circuit makes this microphone ideal for percussion, kick drums, bass and powerful vocals, capturing their power with fidelity and never distorting.


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-47F 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.

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.


If you’ve used an original vintage u47 before, we’re extremely confident the SA-47F will put a big smile on your face every time you use it.

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. This allows you to get it into your studio and see how it impacts your recordings. If you love it (and we think you will!), great… keep the unit and create amazing music with it. If not, no problems. Just send it back to us and we’ll fully refund your purchase.
