A Minimoog D Saved From Fire & Juno the Main Coon Kitten

via Jorge: "This is Juno my new Maine Coon Kitten sitting on my Prized Minimoog D.

A little Background about my Mini.

Almost 2 years ago I got this Mini From Craigslist Virginia, Funny thing though is that the guy that had it happened to go to the same High School I went to in the early 80’s.

He said he got it when he worked at Venamin’s Music in Springfield VA, working as a manager in the 80’s. This Mini Spent most of its life in his Basement studio and survived a fire that burned the entire house down except a closet that was in his basement where the Mini was stored in an Anvil case.

When I got it, It was in fair shape but I was determined to make look and play like new. I had all the electronics restored and had the wood case professionally refinished. I was even able to replace both the Mod & Pitch wheels with NOS from Mike Bucki, he even had an Original Moog sticker from the 70’s that went in the back of the Mini.

All I can say now is that This Mini is one of my favorite synths in my studio it plays and sounds wonderful."

Here are a few pics.
