Don Martin's Moog Music Cincinnati Modular System

via this auction

Not the sharpest pics, but this is definitely not something you see everyday. A Don Martin Moog Modular. Don owned the rights to Moog Music while Bob Moog was running Big Briar. Bob sued Don Martin to get the name back in time for the release of the Voyager and Bob Moog's re-entry into the synth market. There was also Alex Winters in the UK who own the rights to the Moog name at the time, making Minimoogs (you can see one here). Don Martin also made a Minimoog, often referred as the Donimoog.

This is a fascinating bit of synth history.

From the listing:

"Don Martin's Moog Music Cincinnati Modular System
8 modules + Power Supply and cables
you can find info about these modules at and on the net (Bob Moog, Don Martin, lawsuit, etc.)

1 X 9501A oscillator controller
1 X 9501B oscilator
1 X 9504A low pass filter
1 X 9504B high pass filter
1 X 9503A random signal generator
1 X 9502 voltage controlled amplifier
2 X 9511 enveloppe generator

power suplly
connectors cables
s-trig cables (+trig converter if needed)

those modules are sold as collector items.

they are faithfull recreations of the first moog modular, using the same strange power voltage, fully compatible with original moog systems, but not with modern standards.

the high pass filter is not working properly, due to a component failure, but I can probably have it fixed.

I deliberately set a high price to avoid an impulse buy which could create a misanderstanding.

If you are interested, you can contact me, ask anything you would like to know and make an offer.

The photos are a little blurred so I will post more and better photos later.

Thanks for your interest."
