It’s raffle time again and on the 50th anniversary of the shipping of the first Minimoog the Bob Moog Foundation has a vintage Model D synthesizer on offer for $20 a ticket.
Vintage Model D
This is an original Minimoog Model D synthesizer with serial number 8903. It was built at Moog Music’s Buffalo factory in the late 1970s and has an estimated value of $6,500. It has been restored and future-proofed by Wes Taggart of Analogics which includes the custom cabinet made from rare African Makore wood. It’s in excellent technical condition while showing the wear and tear of its years with pride.
Michelle Moog-Koussa, executive director of the Bob Moog Foundation says:
“The Minimoog set the standard for an entire industry that followed, with its robust build, iconic sound, and elegant design. We are excited to offer an instrument of this caliber to our supporters all over the world as the prize for our spring raffle.”
The raffle is to raise funds for Dr. Bob’s SoundSchool educational project that inspires over 3,000 elementary school students per year through the science of sound. It will also help support the Moogseum which brings Bob’s legacy to life through this immersive and experiential facility.
Tickets are from $20 and the raffle is open internationally until March 29th or until all 4,500 tickets sell out.
