"Hey Guys,

Today, I thought I would take a little time to document some of the changes across the minimoog production from 1971-1980.

Serial #s reviewed is as follows:

R.A Moog SN: 1037 built 3/71
Early Moog Music SN 1548 Built 6/8/72
Moog Music SN 6768 Built 1/29/75
Late Moog Music SN 13061 Build date unknown

Here is the link for the musonics minimoog: [posted here]

I did forget to finish explaing the Pitch/Mod Wheel changes:
3/1971- 7/1972 used the clear wheels

7/ 1972-1973 used the blocky white wheels, (here is a video explaing these style wheels: [Alan's below]

1974-1/1975 used the smooth edged cream wheels

1975-1981 used the ribbed wheels found on most moog models

1982 went back to clear wheels as a special edition run


Thanks for watching, and for the support!

Sincerely,
Jareth"

"Hey Guys,

This is a video going over Alan's 72 minimoog and pointing out some design changes that happened within a months period between June 8th 1972 to July 14th 1972

Thanks again Alan, was a pleasure getting this minimoog back into good health for you.

Thanks to all that watch my videos as well!!!

Sincerely,
