The Bob Moog Foundation has launched a raffle for a much sought after vintage Minimoog synthesizer.
Proceeds from the raffle will benefit the Foundation’s educational and historical preservation projects. Tickets to enter the raffle are $20 each, or 6 for $100 and can be purchased through the Foundation’s website: http://bit.ly/MinimoogRaffle2015. The raffle, which is open internationally, closes at midnight on September 30, 2015. Only 2,000 tickets will be sold.
The Minimoog Model D being offered, serial number 2120, was built at Moog Music’s Williamsville, NY factory in the early 1970s. It is in excellent technical and physical condition and has been serviced by a technician with expertise in Minimoogs. The instrument has been modified, although the modifications have been disabled to preserve and maintain the integrity of the instrument.
The Minimoog Model D is widely regarded as the most iconic synthesizer of all time, and was so recognized in an international voters’ poll by SonicState.com. When released in 1970, it represented a musical and technological revolution due to its combination of portability, affordability, accessible user interface, and innovative sounds and functions. Its robust construction has allowed the instrument to withstand the test of time. Minimoog Model Ds are coveted by synthesizer enthusiasts and regularly sell on eBay for $4,000-$7,000.
The raffle closes at midnight on September 30th, 2015.

Of course there will be snippets of your favorite prog rock tunes (poorly played I might add), because PROG ROCK WILL NEVER DIE!!!
Thanks to Andrew Amado for the synths & the editing.

Moog’s new Tolex Minimoog Voyager XL – a limited production run (100 pieces) version of the Minimoog Voyager XL, in honor of the 50th anniversary of the Moog modular synthesizer.
The Minimoog Voyager XL is designed to combined the immediate playability of a Minimoog with the flexible synthesis options of a traditional modular synthesizer.
With the Tolex Minimoog Voyager XL, the wood cabinet has been hand-wrapped in black tolex, just as the Model 15 modular synthesizer, and the chassis has been updated to parallel that of the original Moog modular synthesizers.
