1970's Moog Minimoog Model D with Moog 1125 Sample & Hold

Published on May 11, 2016

"In this episode of Funky Vintage, we cover Moog’s crown jewel: the Minimoog Model D. This is the synth that started it all; it brought synthesis out of the laboratory and onto the stage, giving performing musicians access to the iconic synths sounds we know and love today. You’ve undoubtedly heard this classic three-oscillator monophonic synth, although you may not be aware of it."

"Original edition Moog Minimoog Model D, serial number 53XX; with rare Moog 1125 Sample & Hold. The mini features the rare solid walnut wood cabinet and clear pitch/modulation wheels. This vintage Minimoog is in collector's condition. You will be hard-pressed to ever find a nicer Minimoog than this one!!

Also included are the following:

Brand new heavy-duty vinyl cover
Spare parts including two new clear pitch/modulation wheels and white rocker switches
Original Moog manual with schematics
The below work was just performed by an authorized Moog Service Center:

The keyboard was redone with all new rubber stops
All key contacts were cleaned
The circuit boards and tuning were calibrated

The unit also has several Moog modifications:
New oscillator board for increased tuning stability
2nd pitch knob for oscillator one (permits switching rapidly between unison and fifth tunings, etc.)
Constant "drone" switch
All modification were done by an authorized Moog Service Center using Moog parts
The Model 1125 Sample and Hold unit connects to the Minimoog (or other Moogs with an 'S' trigger) to trigger random sequencing patterns. It was just tested and is working fine."
