"Here is your chance to get your hands on one of one of the most unique and gorgeous sounding Vintage VCO String Machines out there!

The Moog Opus 3 is a rare early 80s String Machine / Organ / Paraphonic Synthesizer that is essentially Moog’s take on a Arp Solina or Arp Omni. In my opinion it’s way more interesting due to it’s added features and sounds better than either of those. All notes can be played simultaneously just like those other stringers.

Stereolab used the Moog Opus 3’s extensively throughout their first three records so if you are a Stereolab fan this is a must have!

This one is in excellent condition with normal wear as shown in the photos. We believe it has had it’s wood panels replaced at some point. Whoever replaced them did an excellent job. It was recently fully professionally serviced it works as it should. Plays and sounds like a dream!

It has an incredible sounding string machine with it’s own dedicated very unique sounding multi mode resonant 12db filter section. That section also has a super lush sounding stereo chorus. It also has an excellent brass section with a separate classic 24db resonant Moog ladder filter and filter envelope. It also has a multi draw bar organ section that can be routed though the brass section ladder filter. It has a global attack and release. Each section has it’s own dedicated volume and pan control meaning it can be layered, routed and panned in very unique ways. One of the coolest and most unique sounding Moog’s we have come across."
