Moog 1130 Percussion Controller

“Up for sale is a hard to find vintage Moog 1130 Percussion Controller. It’s just been serviced and working fine. The original red and black plugs are been replaced by new ones.

The 1130 is an electro-acoustical percussion transducer for use with Moog performance synthesizers. Each time the head is struck, a short trigger and a control signal change are produced. Can be played with sticks, mallets, or hands.

Cosmetically it’s in used condition with a lot of rusty spots on the metal parts, a few scratches, and wear and tear. There is no owner’s manual printed on the bottom panel. Not sure why, but it’s missing. There is also no serial number sticker inside.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Moog Drum Controller Model 1130

moog drum controller “This Moog Music Inc. Drum Controller (Model 1130) sends control voltage Information (pitch, gate, volume & filter cutoff) to compatible synthesizers such as the Moog Minimoog. It is in near mint condition. The drum head and body appear practically new.

Below is a recorded demonstration of a Minimoog and this Moog Drum Controller. Listen closely and you can hear there’s a microphone on the drum head in addition to the filter cutoff being determined by the strength of the drum hit (which can also be routed to volume or pitch): Moog Drum mp3.

An original copy of the Moog Synthesizer Accessory Operation Manual is included. See my other auctions for a Moog Sample & Hold Controller (model 1125) and a Moog Minimoog in perfect working condition.” Click here to visit listing on eBay
