The SA-87 is an exact reproduction of a 1979 vintage Neumann U87 microphone considered by most engineers as the finest sounding U87 ever made. For audio samples comparing it to the original please look up Stam Audio on Soundcloud. Unlike other cheaper clones the SA-87 does not use a Chinese capsule but a hand made capsule by Eric Heiserman in the US. The Heiserman Audio HK- 87 capsule is based on a 1960’s vintage set of original back plates which offers a vintage tone compared to current offerings, it uses brass rings to hold down the Mylar, nylon screws to isolate the capsule halves and is professionally skinned with DuPont Mylar in Chicago. We have remained 100% faithful to the original vintage circuit and schematic makIng each microphone. To the highest standards with only the best quality components such as Vishay, Polystyrene and WIMA capacitors and a Sowter transformers. The combination of all these details has allowed us to. Recreate the distinctive dark character of the original to the very last drop and for the first time at a price that is affordable to anyone. True to the original vintage schematic (rev 16). Sowter 1303f output transformer. Completely discrete signal path. Omnidirectional, cardioid and figure 8. 20Hz – 20kHz frequency response. Hand made in Chile. If youve used an original vintage u87 before, were extremely confident the SA-87 will put a big smile on your face every time you use it. However, if youve 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. This allows you to get it into your studio and see how it impacts your recordings. The item “Stam Audio SA-87″ is in sale since Friday, May 26, 2017.
