Moog Prodigy vintage synthesizer

via this auction

"Vintage Moog Prodigy in excellent working condition. Has exactly two flaws, neither of which ever bothered me enough to take it in for repairs:

1. At some point, the modulation rate knob got snapped off. It’s still entirely possible to change the rate; you just have to twist the part that’s still there. (See the picture.)

2. The C key at the far right of the keyboard is stuck—it won’t go down. I think the wooden chassis must have swollen enough over the years to be pressing against it too tightly, or maybe the keybed ended up just a millimeter too far to the right in a prior shipment or repair.

Otherwise it’s just an excellent unit. The knobs and switches do what they’re supposed to and the oscillators are nice and stable."
