The Bob Moog Foundation has announced the prize in this summers raffle. It’s a vintage Memorymoog Plus synthesizer and all you need to do is buy a ticket.
Last year it was a regular, original Memorymoog and in the spring it was a Minimoog Model D signed by Jan Hammer. This time it’s the expanded version of the Memorymoog up for grabs. It has 6 voices for each of the 3 oscillators, MIDI and a built in sequencer. It can produce massive 18 oscillator monophonic sounds while in unison mode while being shaped by 6 ladder filters. There’s a full ADSR envelope, sample-and-hold, extensive modulation and 100 patch memory. It’s a bit of a monster by all accounts.
This particular Memorymoog Plus was built in 1984, has serial number 2641 and an estimated value of $10,000. It was donated to the Bob Moog Foundation by Lee Keeley, it’s in top notch condition and fully serviced by vintage synth specialist Wes Taggart.
Raffle tickets are $25 each and all proceeds go to benefit the Foundation’s educational and historic preservation initiatives. So you can give to a worthy cause and potentially win a massive synthesizer. The raffle has been capped at 4000 tickets, you must be over 18 and have not worked for Moog. It’s open to participants worldwide and the Moog Foundation will even pay up to $300 of the shipping costs. Closing date is the 8th September or when the 4000 tickets have been sold.
Worth a punt I think.
