“Overall clean vintage Realistic MG-1, the item may exhibit signs of cosmetic wear. One key has previously been damaged and repaired (before I aquired the unit) see close up picture

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.”

“This is a pretty nice and usable little Analogue synth, and an easy way to get some classic Moog filter action without spending the big money.

Mono and Poly sounds make it quite versatile, as well as covering all your usual analogue bases.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“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

“For your consideration I have a used Moog MG-1 synthesizer. It comes from a clean smoke free home. It sounds amazing and is 100% functional. The sliders are smooth and the keys still have good action. This one is completely unmodified 100% original, but there are some really cool mods out there, ” 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

“Just found this in a storage unit.

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

“This is a great sounding and looking classic mini Moog MG-1 by Realistic. This is a great opportunity for someone who is handy with these things.

This Moog plays and sounds great. There is one evident problem: The low E key doesn’t play. Every other key and switch seems to do just what it is meant to do. I went through many of the settings in the owner’s manual, included in this auction, and everything – except the E – worked.

The chips have been upgraded by addition of improved ordering chs from Flatkeys in the U.K. Auction also includes an extra pair of Flatkeys chips that are unused.

When installing the chips there was slight damage to the printed circuit board. You can see from one photo a short jumper was installed to ensure connectivity. It works fine.

We spent a lot of time removing the black foam that came under the keyboard. If you are looking at MG-1 on eBay, please note that if it doesn’t say the foam was removed you will be in for a huge, messy job. You should search for this info on the web and read about this. The foam can eat into the electronics. It took many hours, with a few extra hours cleaning up the carpet stains, etc.

With a machine in such nice, compete shape, original owner’s manual and upgraded electronics, this is a nice find at a reasonable opening bid.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Mono synth functions work intermittently. When working, this synth is amazingly fat audibly. Since I have had the Synth I never heard the Poly mode work.

“Working Unit—Used not abused condition. Deficits: Two beauty caps on “Tone Sources” and “Master Volume” respectfully are missing. However
the controls work perfectly without the caps. See the “Polyphony” cap as an example. The toggle switch on “Keyboard Tracking” is missing.
Probably an easy fix. I tested all controls and modulation was had on each. Sold as working, not !00% because of toggle switch, and as is.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Two small flaws in this unit- chip off the plastic in the bottom back corner (pictured) and the LFO rate LED seems to have gone out. (Should be an easy fix for anyone with a soldering iron.) The LFO itself works fine.
