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

Model 2 sound in a stereo package

The Model 2S is a passive stereo ribbon microphone utilizing the same design features found in the Model 2. The Model 2S uses two matched ribbon motors angled at 90 degrees to each other to create a Blumlein configuration. It uses the same motors and transformers found in our Model 2. The motors feature a very short front to back path length along with our custom designed resonator plates. These features give the Model 2S the same unique sonic character found in our Model 2: an incredibly extended and detailed high end, classic smooth ribbon midrange, an open and transparent low end, and an amazingly quick transient response. A custom designed toroidal transformer provides extremely low distortion, low noise, and 3D like sound. 

 

The Model 2S captures stunning stereo recordings with ease. Whether you are using the Model 2S in a Blumlein or M-S stereo configuration, the microphone's uniform polar frequency response and excellent off-axis frequency response will provide you with outstanding phase coherent stereo recordings. Solid phase compatibility between the two channels of the Model 2S also allows the user to combine the two channels into a mono recording without any phase artifacts. The microphones slim body and simple isolation mount make it easier than ever to position. 

 

The beauty of the Model 2S is its ability to capture incredible 3D like recordings that will make you feel like you are in the room with the performers. Its beautifully balanced and extended frequency response greatly reduces the need for post equalization. The Model 2S shines on orchestral and choral recordings. It will have you hearing drum overheads and room recordings like never before. The Model 2S will easily become your favorite on string sections, horn sections, piano, acoustic guitar, and so much more. 

 

The Model 2S is covered by a lifetime warranty on parts and a free re-ribboning for the original owner within two years of purchase. The microphone ships with a cherry wood case, mount clip, protective pouch, and a 5-pin XLR female to dual 3-pin XLR male breakout cable.

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."
