The Mesanovic Microphones Model 2S Ribbon Microphone is a passive stereo ribbon microphone which builds upon the ribbon motor found in the Model 2, but in a convenient stereo configuration. The Model 2S delivers a wide open top-end stereo spread, perfectly sculpted mid-range, and tight yet thunderous lows. Chances are, all of the refinements that you've ever wanted to hear in a stereo ribbon, you'll find in the Mesanovic Model 2S Stereo Ribbon Microphone and their other microphone offerings.

The Mesanovic Microphones 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 the Mesanovic 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 the 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 Mesanovic Microphones 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. All stainless steel contruction, it's 100% handcrafted in Detroit, MI.

The beauty of the Mesanovic Microphones 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 a passive ribbon mic and will therefore require a preamplifier. Here at Front End Audio, we like the Millennia HV-35P Preamp. There is also an active version of the Model 2 which is the Model 2A.

What We Think


Are you an audio engineer looking to take your recording studio to the next level? Look no further than the ​Mesanovic Microphones Model 2S Ribbon Microphone! This incredible ​Ribbon Microphone will blow you away with its outstanding performance and tonal characteristics. The Model 2S Ribbon Microphone is not just another shade of an already great color. There really is a range addressed by this microphone which we haven't heard covered by the other great ribbon microphones. We love ribbons because of their ability to 'hear like we do.' Also, they bring the music forward via the mids. However, we also struggle with them due to their finicky impedance relationships and their proclivity for the lower mids sometimes sounding wooly and a bit bulbous. Enter the Mesanovic Microphones Model 2S; this mic really seems to fix all of that (maybe not the special feeding and care requirements where impedance matching comes in to play). In fact, the Model 2S goes deeper into the lows than any other ribbon that we've heard, trims excess buildup in the lower mids, and exhibits a clear top-end, all at once! So, we'd definitely call the Mesanovic Microphones Model 2S a 'full range' microphone.
