1973 Moog Music Inc. Minimoog -Future Proofed-

via this auction

From The Black Lodge, North Bend, WA, the home of Twin Peaks. Check out the seller's profile pictures. :)

"Up for grabs is a gorgeous 1973 Minimoog. After acquiring an original R.A. Minimoog last year, we decided to have this Model D future proofed in preparation for sale back in October 2022 with no expenses spared. Prior to our ownership it was routinely serviced by the original owner, who was a session musician for studios such as United Western / Ocean Way, A&M, etc. The original blue anvil ATA flight case it was primarily stored in for the majority of it’s 50 years is available upon request from the buyer. ATA case is in excellent condition.

The power supply is completely rebuilt and a 3 prong US cable was installed. Rock solid with zero drift. The calibration is perfect. All of the electrolytic capacitors have been replaced throughout the synth. Every mechanical and moving part has been thoroughly cleaned. The keybed has been meticulously refurbished- all key contacts straightened and cleaned, bus bar cleaned, key frame straightened, and new bushings installed. Plays like a dream. Every dial is smooth and precise. The cabinet is all original wood and has been well maintained with only a few very minor imperfections. Overall this is a near mint unit listed with a modest excellent condition rating according to Reverb grading."

  1. It's all fun and games until a girl with long black hair crawls out of your TV, and she isn't here to play canasta.
