SA-67: The most faithful recreation of a vintage U67 on the market.

Used by the biggest artists in the world for over half a century the 67 became known for its silky top end, mid forward presence, and tight low end. This microphone is extremely versatile and a first choice for many engineers on vocals, acoustic guitars, overheads, and Piano.

 

Manufacturing

With a fully discrete circuit and handmade one by one in our lab in Chile the Stam Audio SA-67 is an identical sounding replica of the vintage U67. We have gone to great lengths to source parts and NOS tubes to give this microphone the true character of the original.

 

The Capsule 

Tuned by hand and tested individually each Stam Audio SA-67 comes with a Braingasm K67 capsule from Rome, Italy. The BG-67 which is also used on our SA87i has the same frequency response and timbre has the old K-67 capsules. This is the most important part of the microphone and 80% of it’s sound.

 

The Tube

Each SA-67 comes with a NOS European EF86 tube which are hand selected and auditioned as the largely contribute to the low mids and smooth top end of the microphone. Unlike other cheaper currently made tubes a good NOS EF86 will never sound strident nor harsh and won’t lack the low mid information missing on other replicas.

 

The Output Transformer 

At Stam Audio sound quality comes before profit. An accurate 67 replica can not be made without the complex, expensive and gorgeous sounding AMI BV-12 output transformer. The AMI BV12 is made in the USA by AMI Magnetics and is identical to an old BV-12 both in construction, frequency response and harmonic content.

 

The Circuit and Power Supply

We made sure to respect the original U67 schematic on both the microphone and power supply and used premium capacitors through a fully discrete circuit including Vishay Polystyrene, Wima capacitors and Ohmite carbon resistors on the audio path.

The power supply is a virtually noiseless power supply with Neutrik connectors and can be used both on 115V and 230V

  1. Daniel

    This is how midrange should sound!, the highs are so smooth, you can be sure any singer would get that vintage magic with this mic.

    Estos son los medios que estaba buscando!, los agudos son muy suaves, de seguro todo cantante se verá beneficiado con un toque mágico de nostalgia vintage usando este mic.

    I am not a singer, but I am a vocalist with a nasally voice. The SA67 adds a smoothness and a professional sheen to my voice that just works! And It sounds great on guitar cabs, bass cabs, acoustics, percussion, everything. Hands down the best mic I have ever used.

  3. Jason

    I own a pair of SA67’s with Telefunken NOS tubes and am complete inspired by these mics. They sound rich and detailed on everything I throw at them. Drum overheads, string quartets, vocals, acoustic guitar, percussion, room mics, all sound rich, smooth, and detailed. Joshua and his crew work very hard at delivering absolute incredible gear. The quality of the work coming out of my studio has grown exponentially with my collection of Stam gear. Having a pair of SA67’s is a definite game changer!! Thanks Stam!

  4. Caleb

    I love this mic. It fits my voice so well, taming the transients and articulations that tend to spike in other LDCs. They’ve nailed the feedback/ transformer mojo of the originals. Mid-forward and warm, with a gorgeously managed low-end. Takes EQ exceptionally well. Lack of modern HF extension is actually a selling point for me. Between this and the SA47 I have so many voices covered.

  5. Jamie Sitar

    These things are absolutely awesome! True sounding to the best kept originals and affordable to boot. For less than 1/4 the cost of a Neumann reissue, you get the much sought after sound of a real vintage U67. I just finished up a full day of tracking with these on acoustic guitar (steel and nylon string), lead and background vocals, and stereo gang vocals – buy 2 of these if you can! They have a great controlled fullness and a 3D sense of detail. Can’t wait to try Bonham-style drums.

  6. David DiMuzio

    I shot this out on male vocals against a FLEA-47 with my friend who has engineered a couple Eric Church albums and we both preferred this mic. His FLEA mic cost $3.9K USD.

    This mic sounds amazing! I pair it with a Sunset Sound Studios Tutti mic pre and a Stam SA76 ADG. Sits perfectly in the mix. I barely have to do anything to it. The quality of sound and build are top notch. It is now my go to vocal chain. I have a high male rock voice (in the style if Robert Plant, Freddie Mercury, Roger Dawltrey) and it’s perfect for my type of vocal. I own a lot of very nice microphones (Soundeluxe 251, PearlmanTM47, 414, U87) this is my new favorite mic. After owning this and hearing the quality, I’m seriously thinking of buying the SA47 to pair with my REDD Desk mic pre clone. Great gear!!!
