A replica of one of the most legendary FET microphones

We are proud to introduce the Stam Audio SA-47F, an exact replica of the vintage Neumann U 47 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.

 

The SA-47F is made with premium components

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 that we could get the closest to the sound of the original 47-FET with the Italian-made Braingasm Lab K47 and the UK-made Sowter transformer. The very high quality sound 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 SA-47F can capture powerful sounds with fidelity, and no distortion.

If you’ve used an original vintage U 47 FET 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 this FET microphone 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. Don’t worry, whichever way you decide to go we will remain friends.

  1. jorgenberg

    Love this mic, I usually use it for kick out, it has that sound you’ll expect from a U-47, meaty and lovely low end. But it also shines on vocals!

  2. Ian

    The Stam 47FET is truly incredible. It gives me “that” kick sound as heard on countless hit records, and also happens to sound amazing on vocals. The depth on male vocals is awesome, and it’s fat and smooth without the low end dominating. An absolute no brainer for $599.

  3. thesleepywest

    This may be everyone’s go-to kick drum mic, but it is by no means a one-trick-pony. I love it on vocal, acoustic guitar, even piano room mic. If you told me this mic cost over $1,000 I wouldn’t blink an eye. For only $590, everyone needs (at least) one SA-47F.

  4. José J. Becerra

    My kick drum sounds brutal with this mic, One of my best investments.

  5. Dan Sherwood

    This microphone is gorgeous. Thus far I’ve used it on the resonant head of a kick, as a mono overhead, and on vocals. Incredible detail and range without being fatiguing.

    The SA-47F is the first Stam product I purchased and I was pleasantly surprised by how quickly it arrived (2 weeks, all the way to the U.S. from Chile), the exceptional build quality, and of course the most important factor of all — how it sounds! I had heard that 47 FETs were most engineers go-to outside kick mics and now I know why. The SA-47F literally gets used on every drum recording now. It’s equally good on bass amp and yet it’s got enough detail to even work on male vocals! At this price point, it’s an absolute no brainer.

  7. Sonic Circuitry

    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 made a few demo’s of the sounds on YouTube:

    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.

  8. CDiscman

    Brilliant microphone. Sounds epic on kick drums as one would expect but is also great for vocals.

  9. Frankie

    Very nice Mic , we have a vintage 47 fet at the studio so I can compare , the stam is just a tad brighter but then again the neumann is old and there probably some dirt on it from the years ( that vintage tone haha) great mic for a lot of purposes ( not just kick 😉 ) like everything from stam , top notch !!! Well worth the wait . U go Joshua keep making that kick ass gear

  10. Adam Nolly Getgood

    I’ve found the SA-47F to be the perfect snare bottom mic for an explosive and aggressive sounding snare without being harsh or grating. It’s become my go-to!

  11. Chris Chorney

    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!
