Owned by Keith Emerson!
The Most Iconic Synth of All Time!

Worldwide S&H Available!

For your consideration is this 1976 Moog System 55 modular synthesizer. This complete unit (every module and keyboard) recently underwent an extensive $7,000+ service, and has been used less than 2 hours since. This particular 55 was owned by Keith Emerson, and was acquired from his good friend and personal synth tech, who has worked with Emerson both on the road and in the studio for over 30 years. While we planned on keeping this amazing piece of music history as part of our permanent collection, we are currently offering it on eBay to the highest bidder. Do not miss this opportunity to buy the most famous and amazing synth of all time, as the highest bidder wins, regardless of price!

The reason for some modules being RA Moog, some being from ’73, and others dating from ’76-’77, is because as Emerson would service his monster Moog’s modules one at a time, he would swap between units. Although at one point this was an intact ’76/’77 System, it has since been serviced and repaired, as Emerson’s demanding touring schedule dictated.

The auction includes both original cabinets, (although the smaller top cabinet is in rough shape due to tour abuse), a reissue 22-space top cabinet, a reissue keyboard garage/stand, an original 950 RA Moog controller, and a variety of cables. Everything one needs to fully use this synth will be included.

As explained, this synth works perfectly and sounds amazing. We encourage local interest to come view, inspect, and hear the unit in person.” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.
