Since the capsule represents 90% of the microphones tone we have decided to take extra care and use the best available capsule. The Heiserman Audio HK- 67 capsule is based on a 1960’s vintage set of original back plates which offers a much greater vintage tone than alternative offerings. It utilizes brass rings to secure the Mylar and nylon screws to isolate the capsule halves. Unlike similar offerings that feature Chinese-made capsules, the HK-67 is the only fully american made K87 reproduction on the market today. Each HK-67 capsule is 100% hand made by Eric Heiserman in the USA.
The SA-67 features premium Vishay capacitors on the audio path as well as polystyrene capacitors, which are more stable and much more linear in the top end. This makes them the perfect choice for feedback circuitry . Additionally, the unit features an american made AMI BV12 output transformer and a premium NOS EF-806-S tube. Telefunken, Philips and other NOS tubes are also available per request)
ZERO COMPROMISE. SURPRISINGLY AFFORDABLE.
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-67 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.
