Moog 1130 Percussion Controller (serviced)

via this auction

"Up for sale is a hard to find vintage Moog 1130 Percussion Controller. It’s just been serviced and working fine. The original red and black plugs are been replaced by new ones.

The 1130 is an electro-acoustical percussion transducer for use with Moog performance synthesizers. Each time the head is struck, a short trigger and a control signal change are produced. Can be played with sticks, mallets, or hands.

Cosmetically it's in used condition with a lot of rusty spots on the metal parts, a few scratches, and wear and tear. There is no owner's manual printed on the bottom panel. Not sure why, but it's missing. There is also no serial number sticker inside."

  1. The unit is basically an 8-inch-diameter tom drum with an acoustic transducer converting the beating into control voltages. Knobs for scale and velocity sensitivity are also included. There are two CV outputs for controlling volume and pitch on the connected synth (harder hit = higher tone).
