Dream Machine/The Beast: Ex Bar-Kays Memorymoog SN 1493

via this auction

"This special and wonderful Memorymoog was a driving force behind the distinctive Bar-Kays super-funk sound, both on the road and in their recording sessions at Ardent Studios in Memphis.

Ownership History
When the music industry started going crazy for all things digital and the Fairlight Audio Workstation was all the rage, the ownership of this Moog went from the Bar-Kays to Ardent Studios, and then to me in 1985. It then continued on in recording sessions at Ardent, then from there to my Memphis home studio, and in the early 90s went into temperature controlled storage at my house, being occasionally set up and played over the past couple decades.

Now Fully Reconditioned
Thoroughly and meticulously reconditioned by the renowned analog synth experts at British Audio in Nashville, this Moog plays as new, right down to the newly felted key stops. The 100% original cabinet has not been altered in any way; the dings and scratches were all well-earned in its early Bar-Kays days, and I wouldn't want to do away with a single nick.
