Quick Overview

The smooth sound of the Panther MK 2 ribbon beautifully complements the clear, detailed sound of the C414-XLS...

NOS Panther MK 2 Active Ribbon

The NOS Audio Panther MK 2 active ribbon microphone mates a passive ribbon element and transformer with active electronics.  The result is the classic ribbon sound that sounds great with ANY preamp.

The Panther has higher output than passive ribbon microphones and retains the high-end "air" that passive ribbons lose when used with average microphone preamps.  Also, it's high sensitivity allows it sound great on a wide variety of voices and instruments.  If you believe that ribbon mics can only sound good on guitars or drums, the Panther will surprise you with its versatility.



  • Active phantom powered circuitry for high output and low impedance
  • Passive transformer before active circuitry to retain the classic ribbon sound
  • 135dB SPL Handling
  • High (35dB) Sensitivity
  • No distortion up to maximum SPL rating
  • Low self noise
  • Figure-8 pickup pattern with equal sensitivity from front or back of element
  • No proximity effect
