MOOG MINIMOOG

images via this auction
"This MINI is the 908 th ever made, from Williamsville factory (sn. T1908E), it has three RA Moog boards inside, except the oscillator one, that is probably a late upgrade, marked Moog Music. The osc board is not the latest one, it sports just 7 trimpots and is the OLD, fat, soughtafter board. It sounds HUGE; its tuning is VERY stable (as a very good Mini can be); no mods, no buffer board; its woodwork is wonderful, no nicks, smooth as silk, nice wood grain; the panels are plastic over metal (not like the latest ones that are all vynil... ); white milky, smooth wheels; everything works like it should; all knobs are there; keyboard works as it should; according to what a renowned Moog guru said to me from USA :-) , its ser. number with T and E means that it was made for european market: in fact, it is 220 V AC supplied ( no 110 V switch)...FAQ: The Mini nameplate is made of metal, covered by plastic like the other panels are, Moog Music Minimoog (it is from the transition era from Musonics to Moog Music Williamsville). Look at the original a white tag inside its "brain" where the date of release is reported: november 1972. Yes, the filter board is marked RA Moog, as the others but the OSC one. Recommended for european Moog fans (shipping is about € 100, probably less...)"
