Moog Source SN 1724

via this auction

"This Moog Source is in good condition, and comes from a smoke-free home. It plays well and sounds incredible. Serial # 1724. Includes power cable and copy of owner's manual.

Functionally, this synth is at almost 100%. Knobs, wheels and membrane all work perfectly.

Almost all of the keys work perfectly . . . The only playability issue is the middle "D#" key. As you can see in the photos, this key is slightly bent, and because of this it does not trigger every time it is pressed. However, if it is gently pushed back to the upright position and then pressed down, it works correctly. Because of this, I believe this key could possibly be replaced, thus restoring its functionality. There is a small plastic piece of the black key that broke off (and came out of the synth), and I think this is what's causing the key to lean to one side.

Also, the high "E" key is broken and missing a piece (as seen in the photos) but it still works correctly and triggers every time it is played. The broken piece of this key (along with the piece of the black key) will be included with the synth.

Cosmetic condition: Besides the two damaged keys mentioned above, this synth has the normal scuffs and scrapes and scratches that are to be expected of a vintage keyboard. There are also two small drips of pink paint on a couple keys. Please inspect the photos for the best idea of the condition of this synth."
