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. In this microphone we used the same ribbon dimension found in our Model 1, but made some significant changes. The ribbon motor features an even shorter front to back path length as well as custom designed 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 made toroidal transformer from Samar Audio Design. 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 plastic molded case, shockmount, and protective pouch.
