“This is a great sounding and looking classic mini Moog MG-1 by Realistic. This is a great opportunity for someone who is handy with these things.

This Moog plays and sounds great. There is one evident problem: The low E key doesn’t play. Every other key and switch seems to do just what it is meant to do. I went through many of the settings in the owner’s manual, included in this auction, and everything – except the E – worked.

The chips have been upgraded by addition of improved ordering chs from Flatkeys in the U.K. Auction also includes an extra pair of Flatkeys chips that are unused.

When installing the chips there was slight damage to the printed circuit board. You can see from one photo a short jumper was installed to ensure connectivity. It works fine.

We spent a lot of time removing the black foam that came under the keyboard. If you are looking at MG-1 on eBay, please note that if it doesn’t say the foam was removed you will be in for a huge, messy job. You should search for this info on the web and read about this. The foam can eat into the electronics. It took many hours, with a few extra hours cleaning up the carpet stains, etc.

With a machine in such nice, compete shape, original owner’s manual and upgraded electronics, this is a nice find at a reasonable opening bid.” Link

“Condition is Poor to OK to Good. Keys are in Good condition. Slider caps and pot caps are in good condition. I have cleaned most of the gunk out of the unit. Mono synth functions work intermittently. When working, this synth is amazingly fat audibly. Since I have had the Synth I never heard the Poly mode work. Everything else on the synth worked or works intermittently.” Link

There are scuffs and scratches from normal use and a chip in one of the keys. See photos for cosmetic condition. ”

“Working Unit—Used not abused condition. Deficits: Two beauty caps on “Tone Sources” and “Master Volume” respectfully are missing. However
the controls work perfectly without the caps. See the “Polyphony” cap as an example. The toggle switch on “Keyboard Tracking” is missing.
Probably an easy fix. I tested all controls and modulation was had on each. Sold as working, not !00% because of toggle switch, and as is.” Link

“This is a great vintage analogue polyphonic synth manufactured by Moog for Realistic (tandy). It has 2 monophonic oscillators and 1 polyphonic oscillator, ring modulator, self oscillating Moog ladder filter, envelopes, LFO for filter and pitch, sample and hold and sounds amazing!

For it’s age this is in excellent working order with no issues. There are no dinks or scratches on the chassis and the print is still bright and clear.” Link

“Real Moog oscillators and filters!

Two small flaws in this unit- chip off the plastic in the bottom back corner (pictured) and the LFO rate LED seems to have gone out. (Should be an easy fix for anyone with a soldering iron.) The LFO itself works fine.

All knobs and slider caps present. I’m told this unit has had the black tar foam removed from the inside.

Tested & working great. “ Link

Condition is Poor to OK to Good.
Keys are in Good condition.
Slider caps and pot caps are in good condition.
I have cleaned most of the gunk out of the unit.
Mono synth functions work intermittently. When working, this synth is amazingly fat audibly.
Since I have had the Synth I never heard the Poly mode work.
Everything else on the synth worked or works intermittently.
There are some screws missing that go into the body of the unit.
The cord looks like it had been repaired.

I really love this synth, tried to clean it and get it working properly. I think it needs someone with more electrical ability than I currently am capable of.

I have used it on music recordings because it has external control inputs that I used to track from midi and CV.

No missing switches or knobs comes with original box.” Link

“in a really great condition. took to my neighborhood music shop…. owner loved it he had one just like it. he completely tested out and said it was one of the better ones he seen and played. really taken care off. does have signs of been used for a 40 year old synthesizer. in the back the rca jacks showing age but still working. overall great piece, blown away by it’s sounds. and even though I was told to keep it I just don’t know how to play and tune. so here it is for professional to love it again.”

“Cosmetically, this MG-1 has some wear and discoloring. I would say the panel is in good to fair shape. Functionally, it is great. All of the synth-crippling foam has been removed and all of the faders and switches have been replaced with new ones. All of the functions work and it sounds great.

The high “C” key was broken at some point but now it is repaired. There is a visible line on the key where the break was. See the pics for the condition and message with any questions.” Link

“Hello, here for sale is this vintage Realistic Concertmate MG-1 Synthesizer. I tested it and there are no crackles or pops from the pots. It does need to be cleaned up a little better, but it is in great condition. The RCA plugs in the back look a bit worn but it’s cosmetic as it doesn’t interfere with the sound. As you can see in the pictures, it does have two switches missing, it seems as if they broke off some time ago, you can move the switches but need a way to get to them. It does have a scratch right by the “tone source one” and a scuff by the “Wave shape” in “tone source two”. There is also a cap missing on the detune switch by the “tone source two”. The synthesizer sounds good, but I don’t know the full functionality of all the knobs, as you have to know what you’re doing to blend the different waves and patterns.” Link

“Selling for parts/not working only – Moog/Realistic Concertmate MG-1 Moog Synthesizer

Synth turns on and makes sound but is in need of a complete service and clean, most of the sliders don’t work and will need replacing.

I have opened it up and it looks like the infamous black sludge was cleaned out long ago.

When these synths are working they sounds amazing, much like the Moog Rogue, really wish I have the time it fix it myself.” Link

“We have on auction a vintage 1980’s REALISTIC Concertmate MG-1 MOOG SYNTHESIZER. Unit powers up and does appear to make some “tones” noises. However I do not believe it is working correctly. Watched a youtube video of a working one, this one doesn’t work right. Not all keys make a tone. I’m sure it needs work. Good for parts or repair. Sold “as is”. ” Link

“Selling a rare REALISTIC MG1 Concertmate synthesizer created by MOOG MUSIC,
the synth is in excellent optical condition, complete,
but technically DEFECTIVE, and it will need to be repaired.
I got the synth in this condition, and as I am not a technician and I didn’t try to open and repair it myself.
I have no time to take care of it and I sell it as it is.
This is a 120V version. I plugged it of course with a 120V to 220V converter,
and you can hear a loud continuous annoying sound covering almost for complete
the sound of the synth. You can hear on the back a very thin sound of the synth when you play it.
The thin back sound of the synth also seems to react when you turn the synth knob parameters.
This synth is then sold as it is : defective, for parts or repair.”

“This a Moog / Realistic Concertmate MG-1 in good condition. Recently serviced, everything works. Looks really nice — everything is bright and clear with no grievous scratches or wear. see photos for the best impression. Manufactured circa 1983.

The synth has three professional modifications:

1. The original RCA jacks have been replaced with 1/4″ jacks.
2. The external inputs feed the filter.
3. Octave switches added for each of the 2 oscillators to provide access to an extra low octave.” Link

I have recently cleaned it inside and out and painstakingly removed the foam that can ruin these. It is a beautiful synth and I really don’t want to let it go but have to take care of some more important things. It still even has the original headphone jack cover- see pics.”

“Up for auction is a Realistic Moog Mg-1 analog synthesizer. It has two issues: 1. Oscillator one’s octave switch will only switch between the -1 and 0 octave settings (not -2) and 2. The tone sources switch in the contour section will only switch between the contoured and the continuous settings (not keyed). Everything else functions correctly. All the sliders and switches are new and the black goo has been cleaned out. It also has a few mods done to it…”
