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

Used by the biggest names in the industry for over half a century the U67 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. 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 custom US made K-67 capsule. The K-67 which is also used on our SA87T and SA-800G has the exact same frequency response and timbre has a vintage  K-67 capsule from the 70’s. This is the most important part of the microphone and 80% of it’s sound. Each capsule is carefully selected after thorough inspection, vocal tests and precision sweeps to produce the same frequency response.

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. Philips/Valvo EF86 (100 USD) and Telefunken EF86 (200 USD) are available per request.

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. Combined with a European tube and US made capsule the SA-67 MK3 will give you the same timbre and response as an old U67 at a fraction of the cost

The Circuit and Power Supply

We made sure to respect the original U67 schematic on both the microphone and power supply and used premium audio grade capacitors through a fully discrete circuit including Vishay, Polystyrene and Wima capacitors as well as Ohmite carbon resistors on the audio path. The power supply is  virtually noiseless and can be used both on 115V and 230V

100% satisfaction guarantee – if you don’t love your SA-67 MK3, we’ll refund you

If you’ve used an original vintage U67 before, we’re extremely confident the SA-67 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 tube microphone is for you, is to put it through its paces.

  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.

  2. The Rev

    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.

    I am blown away! Though I can not compare it to an original U-67, the SA-67 sounds absolutely unreal! I could NOT believe it, when I listened back to the first vocal recording that I did with it.. I have been using things like NT1-A, AKG P420, Beyerdynamic M88, etc. so far for vocal recordings. And allthough I still love my M88, and still think it’s a superb vocal mic, these creamy 67 mids, the slight tube compression and harmonics are nothing less than magical. Itruly couldn’t be happier! And FWIW: I chose the SA-67 over the SA-47, because the 47 sounds a bit honky in many reviews that I’ve watched (the U-47 as well as the SA-47). I think people choose it over the 67 for its wooliness and big bottom end, which seem to be awesome on that mics. However, I view the 67 as the more universal vocal mic. (Plus Bob Marley, Curt Cobain, as well as countless other heroes of mine, used it). But those are just my 2 cents. Your mileage.. you get my point. Thanks STAM Audio!!!

  7. 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.

  8. Mark Bram

    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!!!

  9. Matt Stivers

    I’m really impressed with this SA-67. It sounds great! It’s hard to believe, but I prefer it over the Neumann U67RI that I previously owned. Anyway, thanks for building quality products at an affordable price.

    Just amazing, what a great piece of reincarnated gear. Silk for the ears.

    Such great microphones!
    Have been looking for that “right” vocal mic for years and have access to lots of clones of U87, U47, C12, ELAM 251 etc. in the studio. Many of them are really good and of course they serve different purposes, but none have really hit the mark when it comes to my own voice. With these two SA-67s, however, the search is over!
    The wonderful and detailed midrange and the nice, balanced top make them invaluable for not only vocals but acoustic guitar, electric guitar, piano etc.
    Hard to explain in the right words. They are simply amazing microphones! Will keep them forever! Very well done Stam! Great thanks for providing outstanding studio gear at such affordable prices!!

    Don’t hesitate to buy one or two of these. After being a long time U67 lover and using many vintage U67’s and the most recent reissue by Neumann, the Stam does not dissappoint. It sounds like a U67, is incredibly low noise and high output, and sounds just as smooth as I’d hoped. Have loved it on drum overheads, piano, acoustic guitar, and vocals. Has beat out many other similar and higher priced mics in my collection. I have a pair and want more!
