Manufacturer's Description from Mesanovic

The active version of the Model 2

The Model 2A 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 our signature motor structure and custom designed resonator plates to provide the incredibly extended, detailed, and 3D like response found in our 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.

About Manufacturer


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. 


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.


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.


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. 


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."
