Mesanovic Model 2 Ribbon Mic Demo on Electric Guitar

In this video we test out the amazing Mesanovic Model 2 ribbon microphone on electric guitar. We've had the Model 2 for a few weeks here in our studio, and we wanted to compare it to a classic mic that most of you have heard on tons of records: the Royer Labs R-121. Helping us on electric guitar is the one and only Eddie Berman!

Manufacturer's Description from Mesanovic

A new take on ribbon design

The Model 2 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 our 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 shockmounts and allows for quick and easy set up.

 

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. We recommend using this mic on sources where you would usually not reach for a ribbon, we guarantee you won't be disappointed. Like the Model 1, the Model 2 also delivers an amazingly quick transient response.

 

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

About Manufacturer

"PRECISION MACHINED MICROPHONES

In order to create our completely original and unique ribbon microphones, 

we have to control every aspect of the microphone manufacturing process. Every component that goes into our microphones is completely machined in our shop on precision CNC machinery. 

CUSTOM IN HOUSE WOUND TRANSFORMERS

Rather than buying off the shelf transformers from other companies, we wind our own custom toroidal transformers that are specifically designed for optimal performance with our ribbons. These transformers are a key part in our unique ribbon mic sound.

100% HANDCRAFTED IN DETROIT, U.S.A.

Every ribbon microphone we make is hand assembled in our shop by company founder, Deni Mesanovic. After hours of machining, winding, ribboning, tuning, and assembling, the microphones are thoroughly tested and inspected to comply with very strict tolerances before they are shipped.

A TIMELESS MICROPHONE

We aim to provide our users with microphones of the highest quality. Our microphones will easily become your favorite on guitars, drums, vocals, strings, brass instruments, as room mics, and so much more. 

DENI MESANOVIC - FOUNDER

Company founder Deni Mesanovic has been involved with music production and engineering from an early age. He graduated from the University of Michigan in 2013 with a degree in Sound Engineering. The first ribbon mic he designed and built was for his senior thesis."
