Mesanovic Model 2A Active Ribbon Mic - Stainless Steel

Active ribbon microphone with the most extended high-end frequency response of any ribbon mic - all stainless steel construction
MFR# Model 2A Steel

Product Description

The Mesanovic Microphones Model 2A - Stainless Steel is an active version of the Model 2 ribbon microphone. The Model 2A utilizes the same design features found in the Model 2 and offers the same unique sonic character. The microphone contains Mesanovic's signature motor structure and custom designed resonator plates to provide the incredibly extended, detailed, and 3D like response found in the Model 2.

The Model 2A’s high-output is provided by a custom, in house wound, toroidal transformer. This high turn ratio transformer is perfectly matched to the Model 2A’s ribbon to provide optimal performance. The phantom powered electronics work as an impedance buffer and provide no additional gain or coloration to the sound. The result of this ideal impedance matching is 13 dB more output than the Model 2 and extremely low self-noise.

With its high output level, the Model 2A will work perfectly with any preamplifier. Whether you are using an entry-level interface or a high end dedicated preamp, the Model 2A will deliver stunning results. The Model 2A excels on quieter sources such as acoustic guitar, vocals, strings, and piano - yet still delivers beautifully on louder sources like guitar amps and drum overheads. The Model 2A also shines on location recordings of choirs and orchestras where low noise and high output is needed.

The Model 2A is covered by a lifetime parts warranty and a free re-ribboning for the original owner within two years of purchase. The microphone ships with a cherry wood case, mount clip, and protective pouch.

Features:

  • An all-original one of a kind ribbon motor construction providing an extremely wide and balanced frequency response
  • Custom in house wound toroidal transformer and active electronics
  • High output level with optimal impedance matching and extremely low self-noise
  • Open, transparent, natural sound with incredible depth and detail
  • All stainless steel construction
  • 100% handcrafted in Detroit, MI

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
Phil T.
The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

You guys have excellent customer service and I am excited about the next upgrade I complete on my fifth recording facility. I've been in the studio business for forty plus years. The salesman I worked with at Vintage King was the best of the best. You all rock!

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
