Minimoog, Moog, Musonics @ 24 January 2011, Comments Off

“It makes sound, needs tuning, has some scratchy pots, the power light sometimes lights up sometimes not. But besides that, the whole piece its there.
I bought it like this and ask me who is Mosley?… and what is its serial number?. I was wondering if I could get it some where in the pcb board or anywhere else inside or outside the synth. Never did.
The coffee cup mark was already there. To be honest I didn’t care for that as I always thought that some day would come that i could fix it and leave it like new. Of course things change and plans have to also. There was also the option to just send it to cleaning and tuning and leave cosmetics, and other second details like they are.
Like I said the power light sometimes works and sometimes not. Some knobs and switches are scratchy. Besides the tuning issue and all the later there is nothing else i can tell you about it.. For all of you watching this list you know the differences between the Model D and the Musonics. If not read a little bit. A hard to find one.!!” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.

“For sale is a vintage muSonics Moog Minimoog. This is the chance you’ve been waiting for! If you don’t know about the Musonics version, they were a very early version of the Minimoog, built after RA moog but still before the more common Moog Music. The musonics version is considered the best sounding version of the Minimoog ever made, with very raw analog sound, and I believe there are less than 100 in existence. In addition, there is a rare cv input board installed by CAE Sound (in San Mateo) giving you CV input (you can see the jack near the serial number on the back of the synth). This one is in incredible shape, with original oscillator boards, and cosmetically overall very clean with only minor imperfections. It has spent most of its life sitting unused in a smoke free professional studio. The minimoog was recently professionally serviced and is in fully functional condition. Servicing included new key membranes, leveling of keyboard, cleaning, tuning & calibration, and general maintenance. Comes with hard anvil style flight case for safe shipping.” Auction ended.

“This is a very cool piece of history. As you can see in the pictures it is the “MuSonics” version from ’72. It’s in good shape and everything is in working condition. There are, however, a few cosmetic flaws. There is a ring in the wood on the top panel where it looks like someone set a drink down, the power light doesn’t light up and the previous owner etched his name in the back metal plate.This is a very vintage and USED unit so expect the usual wear. We assure you that our staff will pack and ship with care and your Moog will arrive in the same condition pictured.” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.

“This one is in excellent condition and working 100%. It has been serviced by Kevin Lightner and needs nothing. There are some small imperfections here and there, but check out the photos and judge the condition for yourself. As you can see, this is an early “muSonics” Minimoog (serial # 1256) which are rarely seen. I believe this one was made late in 1971. These early models are a bit different than those made later; Metal face with incremental graphics, walnut cabinet, squared back panel, clear pitch/mod wheels, no voltage selection like later units, older oscillator card (RA Moog stamp), and a few other things.
I kept the original “lamp style” power cord on it as it’s still in great shape and I wanted to keep this one as original as I could. This Minimoog will come with a newly foamed road case to help insure it’s condition.
Cosmetically- The original walnut cabinet and black bottom cover was restored by Analogics and as always Wes did a great job. Especially for a cabinet that’s nearly 40 years old. It has a new set of knobs (from the original company that supplied them early on), a new set of keys, a re-anodized back panel, new Switchcraft washers & nuts, many new screws throughout, and the fuse holder caps have been replaced.

Internally- Apart from any repairs, it has been disassembled and cleaned, new electrolytic capacitors (all boards/rectifier board, power supply), all jacks, switches, potentiometers, trims, modulation section connectors, and edge card connectors cleaned, inspected and resoldered PCB solder connections, tightened power transformer mounting, tightened heatsinks on power supply board, nuts tightened on all selector switches and pots. Keyboard disassembled, key contacts cleaned, bussbar polished, new key bushings (action feels great), keyboard leveled, and the synth has been fully calibrated.” Auction ended.

“This MiniMoog is a transitional model right when Musonics turned to Moog, Inc. But inside and out, it’s a Musonics Minimoog. With a metal face, metal “Moog” badge and clear wheels. They have a thicker/jucier sound than regular minimoogs, and absolutely blow the new ones out of the water. It’s in PERFECT condition and works flawlessly. Just cleaned by a tech. There are zero issues. This is a near museum piece. Local pickup and audition is welcomed. The metal sticker on the back is not completely there and does not show serial number. However, looking at the internal components, the serial number is around the 1300-1310 area. I realized I didn’t post a picture of the LEFT side. But it’s perfect, no blemishes. ” Auction ended.

musonicsmini “The item is in gorgeous condition. Both cosmetically and electronically it is in perfect shape.
It has been one of the cornerstones of my collection of analog synthesizers for quite a while.
I never thought I would part with it, but due to financial reasons, I no longer can justify keeping the unit.

The synthesizer is in its original unmodified condition, running at 110V.

The condition of the item – as stated in the auction title – is really incredible.
I have been a total maniac with this Musonics. I treated it with religious care.
Always kept in my house, away from dust and in a temperature controlled environment.
Please, check out the pictures and you’ll see what I mean.

The electronic condition is perfect: 100% working.
Kevin Lightner went through this particular Musonics a few years back and it has been working perfectly ever since.
No scratchy pots, intermittent sounds or misaligned keys. Everything is as pristine as it can be.
And considering the age of this instrument, it is really incredible.
I babied this one through the years.

Also, I had a custom case built by Encore Cases for this unit.
The case is brand new and it’s of the highest quality they provide.” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.
