muSonics Minimoog

We are Brokering this instrument for and on behalf of our client in the USA

We are very pleased to be able to offer an early muSonics Minimoog (serial #1192) which are highly prized and rare models. These early Minimoog versions differ from the mainstream production versions (post 1973) in that they exclusively used the much fabled ‘RA Moog’ circuitry, metal-etched control panels (with more detailed incremental graphics), Walnut cabinets, squared back panel, clear perspex pitch/mod wheels and no voltage selection like on the later models.

This one is especially rare in that it was made in Trumansburg, NY, rather than Williamsville like most of these. This is Likely because it’s an earlier muSonics and was made while RA Moog was transitioning to Moog muSonics.

The generally accepted wisdom on actual numbers of the muSonics Minimoogs manufactured suggest there were only around 150 or so ever made. There is an informative website dedicated to the Minimoog serial number history and registrations here:

This actual instrument has just gone through a complete professional cosmetic & operational restoration in the USA, so is sold with a full warranty, but below is a summary of the work carried out by a professional vintage synth restorer.

Notes on the Cosmetic Restoration:
The original walnut cabinet and black bottom have been retained, which is really important on such an historic instrument. As such, the Walnut cabinet is over 42 years old, so shows a wonderful aged character, and the professional restoration work has been carried out sympathetically so the original patina remains intact – it’s in beautiful condition as you can see from the pictures below. This muSonics has a new set of knobs (from the original company that supplied them early on), all new keys, a re-anodized back panel, new Switchcraft washers & nuts and all of the external black anodized screws have been replaced. The original lamp style cord has been retained. Part of the paper where the serial number is located is missing, but you can still see the number if you look carefully. Remember, this was before the serial numbers were stamped on these units.

Notes on the Operational Restoration:
The Moog has been completely disassembled and cleaned, all electrolytic capacitors replaced (all boards/rectifier board, power supply), all switches cleaned, all potentiometers have been replaced (except glide and emphasis) with brand new ones, all trim pots replaced, all edge card connectors re-soldered, has a new set of matched precision octave resistors, had an original ‘Moog buffer board’ installed for better tuning (this was done internally so no holes were drilled on this rare piece), replaced heat-sink compound on all transistor pairs, all wiring replaced (very time consuming) with new harness ties (keyboard connectors, mod section, octave switches, external connectors & jacks), replaced noisy headphone amp driver and output transistors, re-soldered PCB solder connections, everything tightened, the keyboard has been completely rebuilt with new stand-offs, new keys, new key bushings, all pivot points on the keyboard re-lubed, the buss-bars burnished, keyboard leveled, and the synth has been fully calibrated. The cost of the restoration work has exceeded £2600 alone!

The MuSonics Mini is based in the USA (runs on 110V), so the cost of shipping, and any applicable import duties are not covered in the advertised sales price below. For a quote to ship it to you the please contact Richard at RL Music directly to discuss your requirements etc.

Guide Price: £8900 GBP.

Availability: This stunning Vintage Moog is now SOLD as at 20th December 2014.

Arp 2600 + 3604P

Status: This item is in stock

Restoration Status: Restoration has been completed and synth is available for sale now!

Remarks: Although these are not rare by some vintage synth standards, finding an Arp 2600 in anything approaching even good condition is a real challenge in 2014. This is why we invest such a lot of time, resources and money into getting them restored to the highest possible level that can be achieved – a FULL cosmetic and operational project restoration!

This Arp 2600 comes with a 3604P keyboard controller, original Arp power cable, keyboard-to-synth cable, and runs EU 220V. The actual version is a 2600P V3.0, manufactured between 1972 to 1974.

Original Arp Filter for this model (un-encapsulated) 4072
VCOs are original (encapsulated) Arp 4027-1
VCA is (encapsulated) 4019

The restoration work we invest into the Arp 2600 is extensive (what we term Total Restoration).  The work includes re-Tolexing the cabinets & lids, stripping the panels to bare metal and having them professionally repainted and screen-printed. We have all the sliders and sockets deep cleaned and the whole synth is electronically restored including the a PSU rebuild/re-cap etc. In addition, we have fitted a brand new 17 inch Acutronics Reverb Tank, and a full set of brand new slider caps.

This RL Music prepared Arp 2600 is over 40 years old, and is in ‘as-new’ condition.  On average we spend around £2800 GBP just in restoration costs for these models (synth & keys), so there is no equivalent in terms of quality offered by any person, or business, in the world. If you have been looking to own the ‘perfect’ Arp 2600 then look no further. These highly pro-restored examples are all sold with a full 6 months warranty.

Price: £8500 GBP.

Availability: This Arp 2600 is now SOLD as at 5th May 2015.

Remarks: We are delighted to offer you another rare opportunity to own a vintage (manufactured 1974) EMS VCS3 Mk2.

The restoration included:

>Strip-down of every component, panels, cabinet

Aside the meticulous cosmetic work, the objective of the restoration it to retain as much of the original integrity of the instrument character, thus the vintage nature/sound of the synth is 100% kept intact. Naturally, the presentation is stunning and offers an excellent investment if you have been looking for a very special example for your own collection.

Moog Voyager XL

We are Brokering this instrument for and on behalf of our customer

Came into stock:  2nd April 2014

Servicing Status: Full service by KSR will commence post-sale

When Moog Music produced the Voyager XL they set out to offer the finest contemporary analogue hybrid synth in the world. They achieved something quite beautiful and it’s hard not to want to own by just looking at it..wow!

The Voyager is a great sounding synth and distinctly ‘modern Moog’ in sonic character, and a worthy evolution of the original vintage Minimoog in many ways, offering truly fantastic value for the money.

This monster synth is brimming FULL of enough features and functionality to satisfy any synth fan, and thoughtfully adorned with excellent performance control options to make this a fantastic centre-stage studio CV/Gate/MIDI controller.

This Voyager XL was purchased second-hand last year by it’s current owner and has sat unused in his studio, so he decided to let it go to someone who will make good use of it – as it deserves. The Moog is in excellent condition throughout, as you would expect from an synth only 2 years old.

Running OS version 3.6. It does not come with its original box or user manual, although the manual can be downloaded direct from Moog here:

http://www.moogmusic.com/sites/default/files/voyager_xl_manual.pdf

This can operate over 110V and 220V – it will be sold with a 3 month warranty.

As with all Brokered Sales, the synth will be fully serviced post-sale before it’s sent to its new owner. We do this to ensure that the instrument leaves us in perfect operational condition, and it is backed up by our full warranty to give the new owner complete peace of mind. The servicing is carried out as a priority once the the sale has been completed, and although it will delay shipping/delivery by a short time, we know from experience that customers are happy to wait.

Sales Price: £3390 GBP.

Availability: This 40th Anniversary Minimoog Voyager XL is now SOLD as at 15th April 2015.

MOOG MEMORYMOOG

Came into stock: Due late-February 2014

Restoration Status: Full restoration will commence by KSR early March 2014.

ETR (estimated time from restoration): Should be ready by late March or early April 2014.

This example is in superb condition, 100% original and an un-modified standard version, so no MIDI but a prime candidate for the LAMM upgradeor MIDI socket-upgrade from Kenton if so wished.

Memorymoogs have to be in the top 5 list of machines for any serious analogue fan and among the most individual sounding (monster) polysynths ever made. These instruments have become very hard to find in the last 5 years or so in anything like decent condition and demand, as with so many of the truly iconic synths from this period, has increased significantly leaving a big hole in the market for top quality examples.

Our vintage synth restorers, KSR, have considerable experience in restoring Memorymoogs – which is more of an art form than an engineering function, and as such, each synth gets around 20+ hours of meticulous & skilled work invested into them just on the electronic side then the aluminum case is deep cleaned and the wood cabinet hand-finished (stripped, stained and waxed) to reveal the beautiful wood character to it full.

Once fully restored by us these instruments are reliable, stable and everyday usable in a professional/production environment or the home enthusiast studio for many years to come.

Considering the beautiful condition and extreme care taken in the restoration work we are invest into it, we are confident that this Memorymoog will be a huge asset to any musician wanting a truly iconic synth to hold on to for many years. This is a fully working synth (tunes 6 voiced every time), is stable, sounds epic and can be used everyday!

This example is sold with a full 3 months warranty, owners manual (on PDF only) and runs EU 220V voltage. MIDI can be fitted at an additional cost – please enquire for more details.

Price = £5500 GBP

Availability: – This Memorymoog is now SOLD as at 30th April 2014.

EMS SYNTHI AKS

ETR (estimated time from restoration): End of February 2014.

Remarks: Another of the worlds most sought after synthesizers, which we are very fortunate to have for sale.

This example is in absolutely immaculate cosmetic condition and completely unmodified. The whole synth is being stripped and rebuilt by KSR, with every operational aspect of the AKS being addressed as part of the detailed restoration work.

These models are becoming extremely hard to source anywhere in the world, and combined with the demand by professional users, the ‘global market’ prices are being driven up fast so now might be a good time to invest in one before they become ‘Vintage Buchla or Moog Modular’ prices.

This Synthi AKS has a full compliment of Matrix pins and operates on EU 220V.

MacBeth M3X

MacBeth M3X

We are Brokering this instrument for and on behalf of our customer

Came into stock: 20th Sept 2013

Servicing Status: Full service by KSR will commence post-sale.

Remarks: A modern classic for sure, and built by a passionate and very skilled synth engineer in Ken MAcBeth, the M3X was the first of his acclaimed analogue synthesizers and a fine product it is too.

This 3 VCO desk-top/rack-mountable system packs real analogue punch through its 24dB/Oct Transistor Ladder, and as with all Ken’s instruments has been built to almost military spec quality, so expect to see these lasting like the vintage Moogs have. The M3X offers a lot in a small package and even had MIDI and CV/Gate control options which makes this a simple/pure analogue synth to slip into your DAW/analogue studio and make a big difference.

The actual M3X for sale was purchased new by the owner and they bought it directly from Ken MacBeth himself. We believe here were only around 100 ever made, so that make this rare by any standards.

This M3X Runs on EU 220V and can be supplied with its original box and owners manual.

As with all Brokered Sales, the synth will be fully serviced post-sale before it’s sent to its new owner. We do this to ensure that the instrument leaves us in perfect operational condition, and it is backed up by our full warranty to give the new owner complete peace of mind.

RA Minimoog

RA Minimoog – Serial Number: 1064

By the end of 1970, the now incorporated R. A. Moog Inc. introduced the Minimoog, manufactured in Trumansburg NY. The first of all the subsequent Model D Minimoogs ever made were called the ‘RA Minimoog’ named so after after Robert Moog’s initials.

http://www.moogmusic.com/legacy/ra-moog-co-trumansburg-factory

We present you with an April 1971 manufactured RA Minimoog, now available for sale.

This truly historic instrument has the fabled and early desined matched transistor filter. It has it’s original clear perspex mod-wheel housing and is completely original having had no modifications since it’s manufacture in April 1971 (date evidenced by Moog engineer test sticker internally).

It has to be one of many peoples life’s dream to own such an extraordinary instrument, and we are no different. Ordinarily an historic instrument of this rarity and value is kept locked away, but we wanted to make this available for you to own and appreciate (in every sense of the word).

It’s quite possible that Bob Moog himself had a hand in the assembly of this particular Minimoog and the original all metal facia just adds to the experience in knowing this is the genuine article from the early Moog company in 1971.

The person we  finally managed to purchase this RA Minimoog from was the second owner. He couldn’t remember who the very first owner was as he bought it from them around 1976, but it’s been in his possession for 37 years. Like many RA Minis, It was used, a player synth, and not stored away which in many ways is a good thing as the synth is still very happily working to this day. It was regularly serviced but never modified in anyway, so it’s completely 100% factory original – meaning: its has all its original PCBs, casings, cabinet, switches, pots, keys etc.

David Van Koevering, Bob Moog’s friend and historic collaborator, is a friend of the previous owner of this Minimoog.  David was interested in the particular history of this RA and had recently commented that only a handful where ever made in this particular configuration. David also mentioned that they used a locally supplied wood to build the cabinet on this RA, which was (very expensive) Rose Wood.

So, what we will do in terms of restoration?

My trusted Vintage Moog restoration expert, Kent Spong of KSR – London, has undertaken a sympathetic approach to the restoration to ensure it has retained the authentic essence of a 42 year old Moog synthesizer. The key-bed has been fully overhauled and re-bushed, deep cleaning to pots and switches, plus a full test and calibration ect. There has of course been much more detailed work operationally speaking but most of the technical work carried out has been to ensure the instrument is reliable and safe to use.

KSR have very carefully hand-finished the original Rose Wood Cabinet to bring back the character, and waxed finished it to enhance the natural aging and darkening of the wood (its patina). Without doubt this RA Minimoog look beautiful and it plays perfectly, scaling and tracking through all the footages very nicely thanks to the skill of a master restorer.

This extraordinary instrument is being sold with our enhanced 6 month warranty. It operates (perhaps obviously) under the US 110v voltage – we do not intend to convert it to EU 220V as that means replacing the transformer. Best left original we think, and it will work quite happily on an external step-down transformer, which we can supply free of charge if required.

Price: £10990 GBP.

Memorymoog LAMM

The Memorymoog is an outstanding analogue polysynth that is unique and unrivalled in sheer power and character. Moog did the best they could with the technology of the day, but Lintronics developed this amazing system further to become the world renown Lintronics Advanced Memorymoog (LAMM).

More info on the Lintronics LAMM implementation can be found by clicking this link: http://www.lintronics.de/lamm.html

Not very often we get the chance to get hold of a LAMM but we managed to source this amazing vintage synth from a musician who has gone 100% VSTi…! Well, our gain for sure, and having a Memorymoog in stock alone would be treat enough but the Lintronics versions are highly coveted. The LAMM upgrade charges are near the cost of the donor machine these days, plus the waiting time to have it done, so here’s a great opportunity to get yours. The LAMM upgrade on this particular model was carried out by Bob Moog’s team (Big Briar) in the USA during the 1990s – we have documented evidence of this.

This LAMM is also a very special as it has gone through our unique ‘Total Restoration’ process that has involved every possible aspect of the synths cosmetic and operational integrity, and taken over 6 months to complete. We have had all the control surfaces re-finished, new scratch-resistance stickers made and a brand new Walnut cabinet made for it by Lamond Design. We are certain that you will never find a more perfect and beautifully prepared Memorymoog in the world. The restoration costs invested into this LAMM have been in excess of £3000 GBP alone, and this does not include the LAMM upgrade costs, which are considerably more than that figure, on top.

So, if you are after a cosmetically perfect, full LAMM spec Memorymoog that is operationally restored to the highest possible level achievable, is totally reliable and feels beautiful to play then we present the worlds finest example for sale.

Supplied with original LAMM User manual. Runs EU 220V and sold with a 6 month warranty.

Guide Price: £10300 UK Pounds

Availability: This ultra-high level restored LAMM Memorymoog is now SOLD as at 28th September 2013.

Minimoog #11601

We are Brokering this instrument for and on behalf of our customer

The original Model D Minimoog is still one of the most sought after vintage synths in the world, and this is in spite of the huge numbers of Voyagers around to choose from…ever wonder why?

We have here a late production model, manufactured around 1980/81, which makes this a very stable in tuning and tracking – utilising the buffer-board (factory fitted) and late Moog VCOs…a players synth!

This particular Minimoog has only ever had one owner – the actual customer we are Brokering if for. He purchased it brand new in 1981 from a music store in London and has kept it with him at his home studio since that time. The Moog was very well looked after and needed little in the way of restorative work operationally speaking. It’s very unusual to find a Minimoog from the original owner like this, so we have the full history for this immaculate instrument.

A note on the restoration:

On this particular example, we had the original Moog cabinet re-finished by KSR and the results are always very impressive. The wood cabinet has been stripped, stained and wax finished and shows beautiful character in the grain, as you can see from the library picture below of another late model we restored recently..

Operationally speaking from the restoration standpoint, we do not change any electronic components that would compromise the integrity of the Moogs character. There might be some components that we will have prudently replaced due to age like but these are off-the-shelf components. The Keyboard will be completely stripped and rebuilt with a full set of new bushings, all pots and switches cleaned, and the final calibration and test finishes of the restoration.

The aluminum real panel enclosure is completely original. We decided not to have the panel re-anodized as it’s in good condition, plus we prefer to keep the instrument completely authentic if possible. Restoration is a about balance, and although the cabinet is not the original brown varnished factory one, you can see the fantastic work KSR can do from the picture.

This Minimoog #11601 is sold with a 3 month warranty. It will operate under either 110V or 220V (switchable).

Price: £4130 GBP.

Minimoog #13032

We have here an extremely late production model Minimoog, manufactured in 1981, which makes this one of the last few hundred ever made! This final production model is super stable in tuning and tracking and utilises the factory fitted buffer-board and last production Moog VCOs for the Minimoog.

We would describe this as in exemplary condition, and the high-res pictures we have taken of this stunning example almost do not do it justice.

One of the nice things about this super late model is that all the original Moog stockers are still present on the aluminium anodised back panel, which is also in super original condition.

This Mini, being one of the last few ever made, represents the last production version of the most iconic synthesiser ever made. This is a collectors item in its own right, but is certainly a perfect every-day useable synth and would fit right into a modern studio environment.

A note on the restoration:

On this particular example, we are having the original Moog cabinet re-finished by KSR and the results are always very impressive. The wood cabinet will been stripped, stained and wax finished and shows beautiful character in the grain, as you can see from the library picture below of another late model we restored recently..

This example is in immaculate cosmetic condition, completely unmodified and 100% perfectly working. We have recently fully pro-restored this particular example (in march 2013), and sold it to a customer in France, but they have decided not to keep it as they prefer the VCS3 model so we have purchased it back from them.

Memorymoog w/MIDI

We are Brokering this instrument for and on behalf of our customer

Came into stock: Arrived at RL Music in mid-May 2013

Servicing Status: Full restoration by KSR was completed on 1st August 2013.

Remarks: We present the rare and titanic Memorymoog (standard Mk1 version) with a Kenton MIDI retrofit, in excellent cosmetic condition and recently fully pro-restored to top operational condition.

Memorymoogs have to be in the top 5 list of machines for any serious analogue fan and among the most individual sounding (monster) polysynths ever made. These instruments have become very hard to find in good condition, and demand for many of the truly awesome vintage synths has increased significantly leaving a big hole in the market for top quality examples.

This particular example is one of the best condition examples we have ever seen and is in ‘like new’ condition internally, which from experience, is a very good sign of reliability. Overall the cosmetic presentation is fantastic and it tunes perfectly from cold, even before KSR started the restoration work. This is by any definition a keeper!

Runs on EU 220V.

We are Brokering this instrument for and on behalf of our customer

Came into stock: 1st August 2013

Restoration Status: KSR to restore once sold, and prior to shipping to the new owner.

Remarks: An excellent condition mid-series production version Minimoog (made around 1977) owning a serial number of 8230. This make this vintage Moog over 36 years old!

A note on the restoration:

We use all the original cosmetic components (no new cabinets or metalwork) and do not change any electronic components that would compromise the integrity of the iconic Minimoog character. The synth is complete dissembled and stripped down to bear wood and then the cabinet is re-stained and finished to a very high standard as you can see from the library pictures from previous project restorations. There might be some components that we will replace due to age like PSU capacitors, trim-pots and some Op Amps etc but these are mostly off-the-shelf components. The Keyboard is completely stripped and rebuilt with a full set of new bushings and the final calibration and test ensures the Moog will be the best you can find. The finished product is stunning cosmetically and 100% perfect operationally and good for another 36 years at least.

As with all Brokered Sales, the synth will be fully restored post-sale before it’s sent to its new owner. We do this to ensure that the instrument leaves us in perfect operational condition, and it is backed up by our full warranty to give the new owner complete peace of mind.

Came into stock: Due to arrive at RL Music early February 2013

Restoration Status: KSR to commence restoration once we deliver to their workshop in February 2013.

ETR (estimated time from restoration): Should be ready in March/April 2013

Remarks: We have been looking for another a very early production version Moog Music Inc. Minimoog and this excellent example became available to us via a customer who wants us to Broker it for them.

We always will tell you that there is something special about owning an early model that become immediately apparent once you start playing it, it’s about the sound. Also, the cabinets that Moog were using for these earlier machines were of a high quality hard wood, and they always respond beautifully to restoration.

This #2222 serial number Minimoog also has a MIDI retrofit – more details on that will be supplied shortly, but it makes it a very useful studio machine for DAW integration etc. The overall cosmetic condition is very good for such an early model although there is some wear as you might expect.
