MG-1, Moog @ 17 September 2018, “No Comments”

“There is some background noise in the audio signals output from the unit. The unit powers on, and all of the keys are responsive. There are some cuts in the power cable and it has been taped back together. This unit will need to be cleaned up as it is pretty dusty. There is visible dust behind the switches and keys. It will need some work to get it in proper working order. Please read the full description for more details” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“For sale is a vintage Moog/Realistic MG-1 synth. It’s works great with no problems or issues, it has been modded. Condition as shown (someone took a sharpie and colored over some of the RadioShack labeling). Modifications include:

-mini moog nonlinear filter mod (thicker, phatter, warmer filter)

– improved audio output

– improved gate response (keyboard isn’t sluggish anymore)

– 1/4” audio outputs

– removed the black foam which can cause issues

– Moog Sticker placed on the back

I cleaned the synth heavily (belonged to a smoker) as well.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

” You are bidding on Moog Realistic MG-1 real vintage analog synthesizer. Item was sitting on a shelf for at least 10 years or so. When I picked one it was very dusty, I cleaned the synth outside and she looks very very nice. I tested the keyboard to my best and I can say she does work, makes good fat sound, sliders and switches function and actually unit is playable , you can make unison or some detune, get in right pitch etc, BUT the synth needs good cleaning. Some sliders kind of stiffed or react on sliding spontaneously, same about some switches, 2-3 keys needs contact cleaning . It was a lot of dust, so it needs cleaning inside. meanwhile as I said she is still in playable condition. Unit doesn’t have any rust at all, just it was dirty. As far as item needs some attention the synth goes AS IS, all sales final. A little bit work for skilled person and this synth will be working like new.

“This listing is for a Used-Vintage Realistic by Moog MG-1 Concertmate Analog Synthesizer. This synth is being listed and sold AS-IS. I am not an expert on vintage synths. The synth turns on fine and passes signal and makes lots of weird noises and sounds. Every knob and switch will change the sound in some way. That said, I sold this before and it was returned and the item is not working correctly. It sounds out of tune. I am selling this AS-IS, meaning no returns. If you buy this expect to spend money having it repaired. I cannot exactly say what is wrong with it so I am selling it AS-IS. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Offering my Realistic Concertmate “Moog” MG-1 analog synthesizer. It’s fully functional and plays and sounds well. This particular unit has had some previous maintenance performed (goo-foam mostly removed, failing analog sliders replaced with suitable new parts back around 2005.) It’s a fun, very direct, slightly-garage sounding synthesizer designed by Paul Schreiber for Tandy way back in the days of yore. It’s compared sometimes with the Moog Rogue, but built with budget consumer electronics in mind.

I purchased this unit from what I believe was its original owner back in 1997 or 1998 and have tried to keep it in great shape ever since.

This auction also includes an unbound printed copy of the factory technical service manual.

Unit is as-pictured and as-described.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“For sale is a vintage realistic moog mg-1 synthesizer. The synth has been modded by a previous owner, they took out the RCA outputs, the 1/4” Out on the front works fine. The osc (tone source) modulation slider doesn’t work. The synth works and triggers on everything else except the 3 A Keys don’t sound. Some do in osc 1 or 2 but in poly mode the low and middle A are kinda fuzzy and the high A doesn’t sound. Sold as is parts repair. Great sounding synths when working.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

” This unit has been completely cleaned out (all the black gunk that was in side was removed). The pots and faders have been replaced and it sounds like new.
Plus, you can connect it up to any other synths or a computer with the MIDI interface I installed. I played it recently and all keys and functions work perfectly. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

The synth powers up and makes noises – however I am no expert so I cannot say if fully functional or not, you bid on this basis.”

“Purchased a few years ago and removed all of the gross black foam inside and replaced a few faders. It plays well just missing a few of the fader caps. Played out with it for a few years but time and life has relegated this unit to the shelf and I would like it to find a good home for it. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Item: Used, working Mg1 synthesizer. This one has all new sliders and switches installed, and all the degrading black foam has been removed. Everything tests out well with this one, although it’s sold as-is, we really think the buyer should and is going to be happy with it. It even has a midi jack midi kit installed, that we have not tested, but probably works great. 1/4 jacks are installed as well. I didn’t test the filter input either but that probably works great. No mods other than that. The keys are a little “cosmetically challenged” in areas but all the keys trigger nicely and the rest of the synth looks excellent. Knobs on the rotary pots I believe are original. This is in “hard to find” condition and sounds terrific.”

“Nice MG-1 in excellent cosmetic and working condition. I purchased it from the second owner in the early 2000’s and rarely ever used it much. All switches and sliders work beautifully, without any hang ups or static. Even the headphone jack works fine. One slider tip is missing as pictured. Will ship to a USA address only.”

“Brilliant analog synth manufactured by Moog in 1981 and sold under the Realistic brand until 1983. Lovely old school sound.

The condition is decent considering its age. The plastic knob on 2 of the faders have fallen off but they still function fine. Powers on and plays just needs some fiddling around to get some decent sounds – will need some work on it but works through my amp. I’ve inherited it from my father but I play the drums so it’s useless to me.

Would be excellent for parts as well.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Cosmetically in great shape; all parts are present and it looks really good! This unit does however suffer from the following flaws: Contains the dreaded melted black foam, visible around the edges of any of the front panel controls. Some of the sliders are noisy and can produce static when operated. Six of the keys don’t always function as they should depending on what mode you select under “Tone Sources” — the offending keys are highlighted in one of the included photos. When set to Contoured or Keyed, they work infrequently and very intermittently (sometimes a handful of times, most of the time, not at all). When set to Continuous, all of the keys sound just as they should. Other than those keys, all other front panel functions perform as expected. The RCA/phono outputs on the back are tested and working, as is the headphone output on the front of the keyboard. I have not tested the Aux In (From Tape) inputs, nor the Pitch and Trigger inputs” Click here to visit listing on eBay

There is no internal speaker to this unit, you have to run it through an amp.

It works, I run it through a guitar amp in the video.

ONE ISSUE I FOUND IS if you flip to “continuous” some times the button has to be jiggled just a hair to work(like literally a hair). You can see this in the video. Maybe 1 in 4 times it happens.” Click here to visit listing on eBay
