“Cosmetic condition is very good, there are some scratches on the front panel and some wear to the wooden end cheeks, but most importantly the back panel with the big MOOG logo which the audience will see is very much intact ” Link
“This synth is in good working condition, I have not used it much in the past decade. There is obvious wear, scratches, dings, see photos, and could use a detail cleaning. The pedalboard wood ends have detached and can be reglued. The A note does not always attack as should after warming up, could be a worn key. The right wood piece of the module has a missing corner, as seen in photo, cosmetic only. Otherwise, it still sounds awesome. In my band I used it for Rush, Saga, Max Webster, ELP, Genesis and Yes songs. Great item for any musician, studio, collector, dealer or as a gift.” Link
“The auction is for a Moog Taurus II controller. This is the foot pedal section only. No synthesizer is included. Overall in very good condition. Comes with original owners manual and warranty card. Original box too. Though the box is pretty rough. I do not have the power supply for this piece. So it is untested. Sold for parts or restoration. Will be double boxed for safe delivery. This Moog part was found with a large lot of Moog gear.” Link
“There are no pedals with this unit. It can be ran through more modern synthesizer. The moog has been tested and is sold with a newer adapter. As you can see in the picture one of the nobs is missing and the power switch is gone. Works fine and the power is on when plunged in. There is a slight short were the power source plugs into the moog, that would explain some of the duct tape residue left on the back. Testing it I found with the cord in place the power stayed on. This is a great hard to find synthesizer from back in the day! ” Link

“This 1979 Moog Taurus II unit is a monophonic 2VCO synth with the same sound engine as the Moog Rogue.The brain is in perfect working order and was just serviced by New England Analog(NEA)in Boston in mid March 2012 who replaced all electrolytic capacitors, refabbed the heat sinks and OSC 1 slider, and performed a tuning and calibration(see photo #12 ). Both the brain and the pedal unit have matching serial numbers.This week, I just checked every switch, rotary, slider etc and everything functions perfectly confirming NEAs fine work.The Taurus II can produce some very loud fat base sounds when you have both oscillators slightly detuned( think Genesis, Rush, etc)If you are not familiar with this model, the Vintage Synth Explorer has some basic information you can research and user commentary.
Cosmetically, the brain is in good shape and has custom wood sides installed by Synthwood (photo #6) The faceplate does have a few scratches but not bad at all compared to many units I have seen being sold over the past year on eBay.The base pedal housing is also in decent shape. A few scratches & one small ding. Only real cosmetic issue is that one of the side pieces of wood at the back has two chips in it (photo #9). It is in the back and not very noticable when set up in your studio.The pedal covers themselves are in very good condition with no missing pedal attachments(like a current unit for sale)or tape residue, abrasion or gouge marks typical of other units. Use the zoom feature on the pedal photos and check them out. They are in great shape. In keeping with full disclosure, the sixth pedal from the left sits about 3/16″ lower than the other pedals. NEA reports that this is common with the Taurus II . After 32 years, some of the pedals sag a bit but only 1 out of 18 is not bad. It triggers if you set up the unit on normal carpeting that has a decent thickness pad so the pedal has an opportunity to descend. If you set the base unit up on hardwood or thin carpet like I have in my studio, a simple 3/8″ shim(or anything to act as a wedge) is just placed under the base in this areato allow the pedal full clearance to descend and it triggers perfectly 100% of the time, every time. This is also a 1 1/2 octave unit(18 notes) Vs the 13 note Taurus I and Taurus III, which is a plus.” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.

“Here we have an incredibly rare set of Moog Taurus II bass pedals dating from around 1981. They pedals come complete with original power supply, lead, original carry ‘sling’, cardboard overlays for writing down settings, instruction manual and original receipt! They include an exceptionally heavy duty purpose built flightcase. The unit works perfectly with two exceptions – firstly the steel post (used to elevate the control unit to waist level) is missing and it’s thread and the ‘nut’ on both pedals and unit will not screw in securely. Secondly the power supply jack is a little loose but once secured works perfectly. I have used the synth live with the control panel atop the pedal unit and also on a small keyboard stand, both far more secure than the wobbly steel pole! Other than these issues the synth works with no problems, all pedals sound and controls function. The control unit is similar to the Moog Rogue but tuned an octave down specifically to produce sub bass and true Moog growl and fatness. This really gets your speakers flapping! The synth is very flexible with two oscillators, glide, white noise, trigger (so you keep a note going without pressing the pedals), overdrive, etc. There is also the legendary Moog filter to shape those analog sounds impossible to recreate with modern gear. These must have originally been owned by a Genesis tribute band as they have settings for song titles such as ‘Supper’s Ready’, ‘Squonk’ etc. I have tried these and they are very authentic. They are not just for Prog rock though! They have been gigged and have the usual scuffing to the casing and damage to the wooden end cheeks. Tuning is stable and they play very well all parts are original with no broken sliders or knobs. These are a great piece of synth history.” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.

“I have a vintage Moog Taurus II Bass Synth up for grabs. Everything is in perfect working order and its all in excellent shape. I recently had the guys at Tim Shroeder Electronics go over the whole unit and clean it out. There wasnt anything wrong with it when I brought it in, just thought it was a good idea to have it cleaned out and serviced. It comes with the original power supply, 5 pin cable, and pole (connects pedals to controller). You can get some very unique bass sounds out of this thing, you could spend hundreds of hours generating new tones. If youre looking at these then you probably are already familiar with Moog products and know that these will only going up in value. I recently purchased this from the original owner and havent used it very much and would rather have the cash and Im sure someone else out there would love to have it.

“Nice set of Vintage Moog Taurus II Pedals. This auction is for the pedalboard, only. This unit connects to the brain (not included) via a 5 pin cable (not included). They’re in nice shape. The only issue is that the highest pedal (all the way on the right) is missing a 2″ piece ..on the tip of the pedal. (You can see it in the pic).” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.
this unit has a midi upgrade installed from previous owner. I have found the CV to midi conversion difficult at best to use due to scaling/tuning issues between the two technologies.
However, the original function of the pedals remain intact and functioning.
Understand, this unit makes no sound on its own, it is a remote controller for CV triggered analog synths.
It is in perfect working order, but does have scratches and dings to the wood trim sides and the plastic cable wraps on the back of the unit are broken.
The midi circuit functions and jumper cables are included as are the required ‘wall wart’ power supplies.
24v for the Taurus, 7.5v for midi
But as mentioned before, the midi interface is difficult to tune/scale to your keyboard which makes the set up a bit frustrating.” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.
“This is a great set of vintage Moog Taurus II synth pedals. Make everything from huge bass sounds to classic sci-fi movie soundscapes with a powerful, yet easy-to-use interface. I bought this with the intention of using it for a solo project that I never had time for; The idea was to play guitar with my hands and play this with my feet along to a drum sequencer. Unfortunately, I’m involved with two other bands and never found the time, so this thing has been sitting around, untouched for the 6 months I’ve had it. I bought it used, with a couple of needed repairs that I did myself. The only remaining issue is that the low B on the foot pedals is a little touchy; The pedal works, but it doesn’t play as smooth as the rest. I’ve been working with electronics for 8 years and can assure you that the rest of this piece is in tested working condition, BUT because of the issue with the pedal I’m selling this unit as is. Other than that, it’s has the normal scratches and dents that come along with something like this that has been used since the early 80′s. Also, it’s previous owner painted the two wood end-cheeks on the pedals red, as you can see from my photos. This thing comes with a heavy-duty hard-case, adapter, midi cable and instruction manual. Just plug it into your bass amp or DI and you’re ready to go! ” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.
” These pedals were given to me as a gift a few years ago and have worked wonders for my band. They work great except for a few minor issues with the mod wheel. Other than that, you can make these things sound crazy. I have the orignal power supply and a new remote keyboard cable (this is the connector for the brains to the pedals). I have quick clip of the pedals in action so if you would like to see that just shoot me an email and I can send it out. I’m selling these as is, they have some surface scratches and I believe some of the knobs on the faders are missing but everything works which is pretty good for an instrument that is played by stepping on it, not to mention they are from the early 80′s.’” Auction ended.

These were a fully functioning unit about 10 years ago, I’ve gigged them live and they worked well. They’ve been in the basement for the last 10 years or so just sitting collecting dust which is the worst thing you can do to these. I just sat down with them and went over what’s working and what’s not (pedals mostly). As far as the pedal board, all the notes except the high E work. The only problem is, they all play the same note. There are a couple missing wooden keys along with a couple plastic replacement keys as you can see in the pics. These weren’t broken, they were just used on a set of Taurus 1 pedals.
As far as the head unit, there’s no scratchiness or static when you move any of the dials or levers. I’ll go over each section on it’s own. Keep in mind, these were tested cold after approximately 10 years of being turned off.
Pitch/Mod wheels – work fine, no noise, smooth changes
Modulation – dial works smoothly, no noise, all switches seem to work okay.
Oscillator 1 – Osc1/Osc2 switch makes changes correctly. Octave switch, 8′ & 32′ work fine, 16′ is a little intermitent. Waveform switch works.
Oscillator 2 – Dial is loose. You have to push in on it a little to make sound changes, however, it makes changes from unison to octave smoothly. Some tape adhesive residue shown on picture, will come off with some acetone I’m sure.
Contour Generator – Maybe I just don’t remember how to manipulate this section, but to me everything seems a little intermitent here. Sustain switch seems okay. VCA switch seems to work as well, keyed and bypass work fine. The sliders seem a little off though, the decay slider is a little bent also.
Master volume – smooth and quiet.
Mixer sliders – (Osc1/Osc2/Noise) all work quietly.
Alot of the work on this unit is aesthetic. And I think with a little internal TLC, this will be a fully functioning set again. I just don’t have the time or money to put into it and the longer they sit, the worse they’ll be” Link

Der analoge Synthesizer war ausschließlich für den Bass-Bereich vorgesehen und war daher in ein auf den Boden zu legendes Gehäuse eingebaut. Das Instrument war nicht mit einer Manual-Tastatur ausgerüstet, sondern mit einem Stummelpedal von 13 Tönen Umfang. Die Klangerzeugung bestand im Wesentlichen aus zwei monophonen Oszillatoren (Sägezahn- und Rechteck-Ton), einem Tiefpassfilter und einem spannungsgesteuerten Verstärker. In einem Speicherbereich waren drei Preset-Klänge abgelegt, einen weiteren Klang konnte der Nutzer des Gerätes selbst programmieren. Das Gerät wurde von 1976 bis 1981 produziert, dann von dem bis 1983 hergestellten Taurus II abgelöst.
Der Moog Taurus II, war im Wesentlichen wie der erste Typ ausgelegt, verfügte aber über ein erweitertes Pedal, über ein Modulationsrad, ein Pitch Wheel und Portamento-Möglichkeit. Außerdem war der Bedienteil des Instrumentes auf einem Stativ befestigt.
Der Moog Taurus wurde im Laufe der Jahrzehnte von vielen Musikern, vor allem aber von Bassisten eingesetzt. In der Regel wurden von diesen Musikern die Basslinien mit Hilfe des Taurus unisono verdoppelt, meistens um eine Oktave tiefer als die Basslinie der Bassgitarre gespielt. In manchen Spielarten der Rockmusik, etwa im Progressive Rock, wurde der Synthesizer verwendet, um der Musik mehr Balance in der Tiefe des Frequenzspektrums zu geben, agierte der Bassist mit seiner Bassgitarre doch häufig eher solistisch. Das gleichzeitige Spiel von Taurus und Bassgitarre erfordert natürlich Einiges an Körperkoordination.
Zu den Musikern, die den Moog Taurus verwendeten, gehören Chris Squire, Sting, Jon Anderson, Adam Clayton von U2, Tony Banks von Genesis, Geoff Downes von Asia, und Geddy Lee von Rush.” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.
This was my dad’s unit in the 70′s. Unfortunately, we don’t have any of the power cables or connecting cables to test it. It looks clean and according to him, it never had any problems. I have no reason to think that it doesn’t work. He played a Hammond organ through most of his career, so these pedals probably didn’t see much use.
All of the buttons and switches are intact and seem to move perfectly” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.
This instrument was originally designed with the controller on a waist level support, but has been used in performance with the synth unit sat directly onto the pedals.
A lot has been written about their inferiority to Moog 1 pedals, however, I have used them for Genesis tribute work with ‘In The Cage’ and ReGenesis and have been able to replicate their original sounds perfectly.
The unit comes with metal support and instruction manual” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.

“Moog Taurus II Bass Pedals and Synth — produced from 1981 to 1983. A classic sound and very much a part of Daniel Lanois’ arsenal of sounds. He plays them with his hands, something I recommend as well. Always makes for fun during a recording session. The Taurus is an interesting synth, it’s a pedal synthesizer with essentially the same synth engine as the Rogue. A very basic synth with only sawtooth or square waveforms. But these waveforms go low and their bass sounds are great. The pedal controller outputs cv/gate so it can be used to control other synths as well. The synth section has an external source input for the filter, and there are portamento, pitch and mod wheels too! Specifications • Polyphony – Monophonic • Oscillators – 2 VCO’s (square & sawtooth waveforms) • Memory – None • Filter – 1 24dB/oct lowpass w/ cutoff, key tracking • VCA – Attack + Decay or Sustain • Keyboard – 18 note pedal-board This Moog Taurus is completely functional but must be sold as is — after all, it is VINTAGE right? So remember, you buy this vintage gear AS IS with no returns.” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.

“Up for bid a Moog Taurus II serial number 1710 on both pedal board and control unit. Comes with case pictured. New faders and recently tuned. New power supply and 5 pin connecting cable. Sounds great. All functions working. Also included is stand pole (not pictured). ” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.
This synth has a great moog sound and a beautiful filter, with the relatively rare (for a vintage moog) ability to sync the VCOs. It’s very easy to use, and very hard to make sound bad as long as you keep the oscillators in some kind of musical interval. It also has an input for audio to the filter!
As you can see from the photos this synth is in generally very nice condition, though there are a few marks on the wooden ends. It’s also in perfect working condition, and I cleaned out the foam from the inside of the front panel when I got it, so no worries about the foam in this one turning into goo and messing up all the sliders.
I’ve made up two special cables for the gate(positive) and CV(linear) ins, and these will be supplied with the synth. Then you can plug in any CV/gate source you have to drive it. If necessary, I can also sell a kenton pro solo MKII already setup to run with this synth. (though I’ll need to ask $200 for this)
note: this auction does not include the original foot pedals.” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.
They spent the first 12 months of their life doing a few gigs with me (hence the reason they come supplied with a flight case) but they have spent the rest of their life in my home studio (connected to a Moog “The Source”).
I am selling them because I have a requirement to “go MIDI” and regretably, I do not have the space to keep them.
They are in perfect working order – I was using them up until last week!
Cosmetically they are in extremely good condition, especially when considering their age.
Cosmetic damage (visible in the photos):-
1). The rear of both wooden end caps have been chipped away and there is some slight damage to the tops of the caps too
2). There used to be two plastic cable holders (one each side) – you can see the screw holes where they used to be
3). A few marks on the bottom half of the rear panel
INCLUDED IN THIS AUCTION
1 x Moog Taurus II Controller
1 x original Moog Music power supply (rated 220v AC input but obviously works fine in the UK) – fitted with a UK 3-pin plug
1 x hard flight case
1 x S-Trig cable (not in the best of condition any longer)
1 x CV cable (not in the best of condition either)
This auction is for one set of Moog Taurus II foot pedal controllers – there is NO synthesizer included!
For the uninitiated, they follow the 1 volt per octave scale when connected to the Control Voltage Input and Gate Input of an analog synthesizer.
The pedals use 2 x ¼” jack cables to connect the pedal controller to the synthesizer – this then allows you to play the synthesizer with your feet.
Moog Taurus II pedals were originally designed to work with the Taurus II synthesizer but as mentioned earlier, this sale is for the pedal controller only – there are no MIDI or internal sounds in these pedals!” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.

This auction includes the following: Pedals, synth unit, mic type stand (for mounting the synth unit atop the pedals), carying case, 5 pin DIN cable, power cord, and 4 templates. A few sessions ago I inadvertantly backed into the pedals at the front and broke one of the tungs for wrapping cords around the front of the pedal unit (see last picture).
