Early Minimoog #1300

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

We are very pleased to be able to offer one of the very first ‘Moog Music’ branded Minimoogs, These very rare early Minimoog versions differ from the mainstream production versions (post 1973) in that they used a lot of the much fabled ‘RA Moog’ circuitry, metal-etched control panels (with more detailed incremental graphics), clear perspex pitch/mod wheels, no rear-Moog label, no external serial numbers printed and no voltage selection like on the later models. This Minimoog has an RA Moog Filter board fitted.

The generally accepted wisdom on actual serial numbers of these first ‘Moog Music’ manufactured Minimoogs suggest there were only around 100 or so ever made in this configuration. These first Moog Music versions are essentially RA/muSoincs Minimoogs internally, so all have a beautiful sound to them. Although there are no externally printed serial numbers, you can normally use the VCO or Filter PCB serial number as the production number, although even they normally differ, so we assume the serial number of this particular Minimoog is between #1300 to 1325 range.

There is an informative website dedicated to the Minimoog serial number history and registrations here:

Lords of the Mini

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:
A brand new Walnut cabinet was commissioned to replace the original as it was beyond restoration, and black bottom has also been replaced. The Minimoog has a new set of knobs, all new keys, a re-anodized back panel and all of the external black anodized screws have been replaced. The original lamp style cord has been retained.

Notes on the Operational Restoration:
The Moog has been completely disassembled and cleaned, replaced all power supply capacitors, replaced all other electrolytic capacitors, replaced both power supply calibration trimmers, replaced all oscillator bend, keyboard, external, and mod CV summing resistors, replaced pitch bender controls and calibrated bender, replaced mod wheel control, replaced all panel controls w/PEC 2watt precision potentiometers, cleaned and tightened all PC board chassis edge connectors, removed and soldered all power supply and oscillator card connector flags, replaced internal hardware as needed, and everything calibrated (power supply rails, both VCA sections, A440 reference, filter emphasis and cutoff, oscillators, tune, scale, tracking, and octave switches).

Keyboard completely restored -
Rebuilt / restored key-bed action, installed all new keys, re-lube’d and adjusted all bushings and guides, leveled, spaced, and adjusted all keys, burnished and cleaned all buss bars, burnished and cleaned all spring contacts, replaced all 16 keyboard PCB stand-off mounts.

The cost of the restoration work has exceeded $3000 (around £2400 GBP) alone!

The very early Moog Music Minimoog is located 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.

Moog Rogue

Restoration Status: Just fully restored by KSR in April 2015 – Available for sale now!

Remarks: It’s been a little while since we have had a Moog Rogue in stock so we are delighted to see this old friend. This is a really super monosynth, full of thick sonic Moogy-ness, and lighter than air itself.

The original Moog company, under Bob’s inspired leadership, produced the Rogue as a budget synth so hard-up musicians and enthusiasts or could get access to the famous Moog sound. The smaller 2 1/2 octave keyboard would limit any ambitions to run off a big Wakeman lead solo but lent its self perfectly for bass work, as did the thick filtered Moog sound.

Some say this was a cut-down Prodigy, which in turn was a cut-down Minimoog (neither of which was true technically speaking in fact), but we really think the Rogue has its own unique character and is probably the best budget monosynth ever made for its pure vintage authentic Moog power.

Our vintage synth restoration experts, KSR, have just fully restored this powerful little Rogue so she is 100% perfect in operation, and as you can see from the pictures below, in beautiful cosmetic condition with just minor signs of age.

This example is a late version with the full compliment of CV/Gate I/O on the rear-panel. We have purchased a brand new external power-supply for this ( 24V AC), which operates on EU/UK 220-240V.

Price: £890 UKP

Availability:  This Moog Rogue is now SOLD as at 30th June 2015.

muSonics Sonic V

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

We present a truly stunning condition, and ultra-rare Moog muSonics Sonic V.

We have only ever seen one of these unique vintage instruments before, so to be able to offer a pristine and fully pro-restored example is quite a privilege. This is of course the predecessor to the Moog Sonic 6, which became a portable brief-case style synth.The Sonic V utilises an early 24db diode filter (not transistors like the Minimoog) which has a very musical feel, and although very Moog in charterer, can also deliver more aggressive & interesting tones. The 2 VCO system sounds beautiful and offers considerably more routing possibilities than that of a Minimoog, making it a very flexible synth.

This Sonic V was purchased from it’s original and only owner – a vintage Moog collector based in New York, USA. Interestingly, we have been supplied with a picture of an original ‘muSonics sales brochure’ from the early 70s which covers the Sonic V and Minimoog, so please see that in the images presented below.

This 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 current owner would have liked to have saved the original cabinet, but it was long gone and something like that just can’t be cost effectivley restored since it used veneer and plywood, so a beautiful new solid Walnut cabinet has been made by Wes Taggart of Analogics. The control surfaces are in excellent condition (see pictures), and all the original knobs, switch caps, and slider caps are retained, although due to significant ‘yellowing’ with age, all the keys have been replaced with new ones.

Notes on the Operational Restoration:
The Sonic V has been completely disassembled and gone through a ground-up restoration, to include: all electrolytic capacitors replaced (all boards/rectifier board, power supply), all switches, potentiometers & sliders have been deep cleaned. The key-bed has had a total mechanical overhaul along with the new rubbers & keys being fitted (as mentioned above). Lastly, the synth has been fully calibrated of course. The cost of the restoration work has exceeded £2500 alone!

A very high-quality custom road case has been built for the Sonic V due to it’s unusual shape, and it will provide maximum protection for shipping, although dimensionally it’s a large & heavy instrument.

The Sonic V 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: £8400 GBP.

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.

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.

Availability: This RA Minimoog is SOLD as at 4th November 2013.

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..

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.

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.

MINIMOOG #11414

Late Minimoog (Serial No. 11414)

We present a most beautiful example of world’s most famous synthesizer which has been fully restored by our partners KSR.

We have here a late production model was one of the last few hundred to be 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!

A note on the restoration:

On this particular example, we have had the original Moog cabinet re-finished by KSR and the results are pretty impressive. The wood has been stripped, stained and wax finished and shows beautiful character in the grain as you can see from the pictures.

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 is 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 contains some original Moog factory stickers that give this instrument complete authenticity. Restoration is a about balance, and although the cabinet is not the original brown varnished factory one, we think the work KSR have done does the synth great justice.

As you can see, the appearance of this professionally restored instrument is wonderful and the cabinet oozes a gorgeous vintage patina to the wood which makes the synth look wonderfully old-school…just as it should.

Considering the age, outstanding condition, and additional care taken in restoring this Minimoog, we are confident that she will see at least another 30 years of faithful operation. Being a Minimoog, this is naturally an excellent investment or everyday useable music instrument.

This example is sold with a full 3 months warranty and can run either US or EU voltage through the power switch on the rear-panel.

ENQUIRE AFTER A MINIMOOG

MOOG MuSonics MINI

Moog MuSonics Minimoog

We are honored to have the opportunity to offer this quite exceptional, super rare and immaculate early Minimoog.

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:

Lords of the Mini

http://monsite-orange.fr/MiniMoog/page1/index.html

From new, in 1971, this particular example only ever had 2 custodians and has been extremely well cared for, so much care in fact that the instrument looks & plays like new. looking closely at the cosmetic condition, both inside and out, she has never been used outside the home environment and all the keys, knobs and switches feel super smooth and pristine. The serial number is in the early 1300 range and the synth has the original (Moog Modular style) metal face-plate and wheel-housing with the clear perspex wheels etc.

All the internal components are original so; original oscillators, stunning RA Moog filter and no buffer board and playing this Minimoog is a joy – she tracks and holds tune beautifully.

We purchased her from a collector in the USA in 2009 with the plan to keep her for posterity but, regrettably, we need to raise some money for other projects so she must be sold.

This truly exemplarily condition example has just been fully serviced, thoroughly cleaned and calibrated and the original Walnut case has been lightly re-finished and waxed to her original condition – all done by our restoration experts KSR – and sold with a full 3 month warranty.

This instrument runs under her original and unaltered 110v power supply and even has the original brown moog 2 core power lead.
