Mesanovic Model 2
The Model 2 is a passive ribbon microphone with a modern cutting edge design, completely handcrafted in Detroit, Michigan.
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 a custom U.S.A. made 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 shockmounts and allows for quick and easy set up.
The Model 2 sounds great on all sources. Its smooth, flat, and extended high end response makes it much more versatile than your classic ribbon mic and will change the way you record. It is an excellent choice on vocals, guitar amps, drums, strings, brass, piano, and much more. The Model 2 also features an amazingly quick transient response.
The Model 2 comes with a lifetime warranty on parts and a free re-ribboning within two years of purchase for the original owner. The microphone ships with plastic molded case, shockmount, and protective pouch.
