This unit was completely disassembled and all pots, switches and boards were meticulously cleaned and tested. The keyboard was calibrated and leveled with new springs. It plays perfectly and the oscillators are stable.

The exterior has some scratches and dents as can be seen in the pictures but is overall in great condition.

The following parts were replaced:

2 fuse holders & fuses

Power cable

Power and overload lamps

All contact springs and board mounts

2 Jones Plugs

Small piece of wood below the tone wheels” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Moog Minimoog Model D

” This is a vintage Moog Minimoog Model D that I think is from around ’73 or ’74, it is serial number 1599, which I am told means it is number 599 made as the serial numbers for the Model D began at 1,001.

I had it serviced last fall and it is in amazing condition. Everything works and the keyboard bushings were cleaned up and in good shape.

I love it and don’t mind keeping it but I could use the funds for the right deal!” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Up for Sale is English keyboardist and violinist Eddie Jobson’s Minimoog Moog Model D keyboard. Eddie was known for his use of violins and synthesizers. He has been a member of several progressive rock bands, including Curved Air, Roxy Music, UK., Jethro Tull and YES.

This is the BEST MINIMOOG I HAVE EVER PLAYED!!! It is fine tune special oscillators which dial up stable precision tuning. I have special ped and seq mods on this Mini as well. There is a special power cable that is made for touring acts for it’s benefit of detachable cable management. Which you can not have with a normal minimoog D as the cable is attached to the unit.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“This one is in beautiful cosmetic condition and working 100%. It is ready to be played and needs nothing! This is an original Model D and not the reissue. Serial #4527 (built in 1974). It has had quite a bit of internal & cosmetic restoration and likely more than any other here on Ebay.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“The external physical condition can be seen in the attached photos. There are no cracks or loose joints in the case and the instrument is very sturdy. Oscillators 1, 2, and 3 bleed through the headphone output. There is a constant background drone. This does not come through the main output and does not affect performing or recording. After warming up and being played for an hour or so most of the keys are stable. Some of the upper octave keys will go unstable and the frequency will fluctuate from time to time. Most switches and pots are scratchy when flipped/turned. Sometimes the main output switch does not work. If you turn if off and then slowly turn it back on it will work. I worked with the instrument for 3 hours yesterday and set all the internal pots from the rear panel and those are the only problem notes I have. There is a somewhat loud key-click, but that is not heard in the output, and would not be heard during a performance or a recording session. Also there is one yellowed key. That was a replacement key from the 70’s that yellowed over time. (According to the roadies they did not know what happened.) The thing sounds absolutely awesome and playing it brings back memories of past gigs and of hearing Keith Emerson or Rick Wakeman back in the 70’s.

Included with the instrument is a copy of the users manual and field service manual. Also included is the original sound settings guide (with some pages missing) and the S-trigger that is used to provide an external input to the filter banks. The sound guide shows oscillator and filter settings used by Keith Emerson and Rick Wakeman on a couple of their recordings. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Being perhaps the most popular version of one of the most iconic monophonic analog synth series of all time is no easy feat, but the Moog MiniMoog Model D manages to pull it off. As one of the first non-modular synthesizers, the MiniMoog Model D is highly intuitive and requires very little knowledge to use. The model D boasts contouring circuits and three separate, completely original oscillators, one of which can be used as an LFO. Although the Model D was reissued, the ’70s MiniMoog Model D hasn’t depreciated in value, desirability, or style.

I have tested this out at home and all keys, oscillators, knobs etc are in working order. The serial number is 4101. I’m not a certified technician however and am not comfortable opening the case up, evaluating the circuitry, and cannot make a technician’s guarantee. This is an as-is sale as I am also uncomfortable with risking any additional potential shipping damage. Please review my previous sales and feedback; all are perfect.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Fully functional. Recently serviced. There are cosmetic dings and scratches on the wood and some very minor defects on the face plate, but nothing unexpected from a unit of this age. All parts appear to be original except perhaps the power plug and the washer around the headphone jack. The larger washer is there to conceal some cosmetic marks around the output plug.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Moog Minimoog Model D

” Minimoog model D from 1974. Plays and sounds as it should, and with the Opto-Key modification, fussing with the old style keyboard contacts after they oxidize and go bad is no longer an issue. If you got in touch with Chris of http://www.thisoldsynth.com/index.html , he would be able to install a MIDI connector kit for it if you’d like to have that. The wood is in good shape, the previous owner has scratched his name and phone number into the metal case, the rest of the metal has some scuffs and stains, the power lightbulb has burned out, and the headphone output volume knob is very crackly (this has not affected my use of it since the other two main outputs work just fine). Every other knob, pitch/mod wheel, and switch functions correctly.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“1973 Old Osc Board Model D Serial 3609!!!!

Just tech’ed by Thesis Synth Repair.. New Bushings, Fully Calibrated, all switches and pots checked / cleaned.

My gut tells me not to sell it but, Im out of space, have way too many synths, including another Mini and an XL, so…. here it is.

1973 Minimoog D. The keys feel great, play great, all knobs work as they should the tech cleaned all pots and switches too!

The tracking and scaling is amazingly sweet as is the RAW SHEER POWERFUL tone from this classic beauty. Remember, i have a Voyager XL… they do NOT sound at all the same. In my book, the only semblance they share is three oscillators and a filter… the sound is completely different. While the XL is a modern gentleman, the old Mini is a Raw, Bold, grab you by the dandelions kinda sound.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Moog Minimoog Model D

” I have owned this Mini, Serial # 9753 since 1989. It is in need of some work– cleaning and tuning. It was functioning perfectly until a year ago, but the oscillators are not currently working as they should.
Also damage to the right side of the wood casing was repaired when it was serviced by Rogue Music. This has not affected the functionality of the instrument.
It does need work, but not extensive work. This is reflected in the price.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

” This is a fully functional all original Minimoog Model D from the 1970s. All serious buyers know what these are and what they can do, so there is no need to go into all of that history. It has been recently serviced, although you can hear a bit of mild crackling when engaging a few of the switches, which could be easily rectified with a more extensive cleaning. It does not affect normal playing of the instrument. Some normal cosmetic wear and tear on the wood frame as one would expect on an instrument of this age. Serial # 5017 means this is one of the early BETTER sounding models. Although the later serial numbers have increased oscillator stability, Moog simultaneously made other modifications that changed the sound, which many experts agree was to its sonic detriment. This Minimoog however is stable, which means you’re getting the best sounding version, which is paramount in my opinion. No electronic modifications have been made to this Minimoog (that could cause problems!). The real thing…all original electronic components. Local pickup is of course accepted and will therefore mean no shipping costs in the pricing, however all responsibility lies with the buyer once picked up. Due to the fragile nature of these instruments, no returns are accepted. The item will be fully insured in value however. Happy shopping!” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“This MINI MOOG is in excellent condition and shape. It has been kept in a professional recording studio for years and used for sampling and recording only. This has not been used for live performance in years. The pods are clean and can be tuned easily. The components all function and the sounds are clear, warm, rich, and amazing. The analog bass is unreal! It will rattle your studio or home for sure. There is nothing else on the earth quite like it.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Moog Minimoog Model D

“This is a original 1972 Minimoog, serial number is #1442, the 442nd production model in April of 1972. It is a rare transition model in that it has the clear plexiglass pitch and modulation wheels before they switched to the off-white type. Otherwise it has all the original components of an early model D including the oscillators, which were never upgraded.

This MiniMoog had a “Studio Electronics” midi installation but it has been lovingly removed and brought back to it’s original specification by former Moog employee and synth expert Nick Montoya. And with it’s purchase, his 6 month warranty. Nick has restored to “like new” performance and playability.

In a previous servicing, the keyboard was re-bushed and plays like new. And the voice cards were given 28 turn trimmer for fine tuning and calibration. You can see the blue trim pots in the picture of the oscillator card. This doesn’t change the sound in any way. Another photo shows the R.A. Moog card etching on it’s flip side. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay
