The Rare Welsh Minimoog Model E Synthesizer

This one was spotted and sent in via M Me. You can find a few in previous posts here. There was a period when Moog went out of business and Bob Moog ran Big Briar. Two individuals grabbed the Moog name, Don Martin (Donimoog) in the US and Alex Winters in the UK / Wales.

Google translated from this German listing:

"For sale is a rare collector's item, a Minimoog Model E.

Only about 3-5 of these were built. The manufacturer was Moog by Alex Winter from Wales. When Bob Moog lost the naming rights to his original company in the USA, Alex Winter from Wales bought it for Europe and built a handful of Minimoogs. The condition is very good, except for a scratch on the panel in the right control panel.

It has the same features as the Minimoogs from the USA, but also has PWM for the oscillators and has MIDI.
The sound is absolutely identical to the other Minimoogs.

The buyer can look forward to a well-kept, very rare device, which has the advantage of being significantly younger than the old Moogs and can be integrated into a modern setup due to the midi connection.

I took over the device from a friend who owns a large collection of synthesizers, who bought the device through the company 'Touched-by-Sound'."
