"Tickets for our 2021 Minimoog raffle are over halfway sold out!

Check out our gorgeous Model D in custom African Makore wooden cabinet and buy your tickets to enter the raffle: http://bit.ly/MinimoogRaffle2021

The raffle is open internationally from March 1, 2021 until 11:59pm ET on March 29, 2021, or until all 4,500 tickets sell out, whichever comes first.

Funds raised from the raffle will be used to expand the Foundation’s hallmark educational project, Dr. Bob’s SoundSchool, currently inspiring over 3,000 elementary school students per year through the science of sound. The raffle will also help support the Moogseum, an immersive, experiential facility located in Asheville, NC, which brings Bob Moog’s legacy and the science of sound and synthesis alive for people of all ages. The Moogseum was closed for five months in 2020 due to the pandemic.

The vintage Minimoog Model D being offered, serial number 8903, was built at Moog Music's Buffalo, NY-era factory during the late 1970s, has an estimated value of $6,500, and will only go up in value given the highly coveted nature of the synthesizer. This Minimoog has been carefully restored and future-proofed by the renowned synthesizer technician Wes Taggart of Analogics, and is in excellent technical condition. Taggart, also a lauded woodworker, fabricated the custom cabinet from rare African Makore wood, which is known for its beauty, strength, and durability.
