Description

The Mesanovic Microphones Model 2 - Stainless Steel is a ribbon microphone that pushes modern design to its limits. The Model 2 is a passive ribbon that is completely handcrafted in Detroit, Michigan. It features a 1.8 micron thick, 2-inch long pure aluminum ribbon. The ribbon motor was designed to have a very short front to back path length as well as custom resonator plates. These features give the Model 2 an incredibly extended high-frequency response, while retaining classic ribbon midrange and a rich, low end that reaches flat out to 20 Hz. You can hear the high frequency "air" in this microphone, something not common in ribbons. The Model 2 features Mesanovic's unique in-house wound toroidal transformer. This transformer provides extremely low distortion, low noise, incredible high-frequency detail, and a 3D like sound. The microphone's slim body (1.25 inches in diameter) allows it to be used with most third-party shock mounts and allows for quick and easy setup.

The Model 2 sounds great on all sources. Its smooth, flat extended response makes it an excellent choice on vocals, guitar amps, drums, strings, brass, piano, and much more. It is recommended using this mic on sources where you would usually not reach for a ribbon - you won't be disappointed. Like the Model 1, the Model 2 also delivers an amazingly quick transient response.

Mesanovic offer a lifetime warranty with their microphones because they are certain they are built for years of use. The microphone ships with a cherry wood case, mount clip, and protective pouch.

  • The most extended high end frequency response of any ribbon

  • All-original design delivering unique sonic character
  • All stainless steel construction
  • Low noise, low distortion, exceptional detail, and 3D like sound
