1969 R.A. Moog 1p Modular Synthesizer System



via this auction

"This modular system is synthesizer history!! It came from a local university that sold it in auction. It looks to be well taken care of, and dust was really the only thing to clean up. These Moog cabinets were made in 1969, as can be seen on the back of the modules, that was written in by hand. Due to the painted markings on the front of one of the lids, and the pasted paper on the inside of another lid, I have to believe that this was once Gershon Kingsley's system, or at least it was in his studio in New York. I cannot confirm nor deny the truth of that assumption, but super cool! I put a picture up from a New York Times article about him. In any case, there are no cables of any kind. And I know the power supply should be rebuilt before anything. This could be a perfectly working modular system, or it may need some work. By the looks of it, it shouldn't be too far off from rocking. I am not a technician though. There is a green switch missing, a hinge connector is missing on one lid, and both handles are missing from the tops of the cabinets. All can be seen in the pictures."
