Moog Minimoog Model D

” 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 search for synths 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 search for synths on eBay

“Selling Minimoog Model D from 1978. The Moog was purchased Dec. 1978 and only one original owner has been keeping it in clean condition since that time. There is still original tag from the Moog factory. Some parts of the wood skin got peeled off as you see the pic. Everything works perfectly.”

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. ”

Moog Minimoog Model D

“Late 70s to early 80s Minimoog D WITH Kenton MIDI professionally installed by an ex Moog tech from back in the day. The Kenton Midi works perfectly with no glitch, lag or weird issues… it RAWKS! As does the Mini itself, The keys feel great, play great, all knobs work as they should although there are a couple that are a little scratchy when moved… only when moved (deoxit will clean er up).
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. So there.. grab it if you want a bitchin’ classic beast because i might change my mind and pull this ad.

By the way as you can see it looks great too, but does have scuffs, wear, etc.”

Moog Minimoog Model D

” Vintage Moog Minimoog Model D – One Original Owner now selling. I bought the Minimoog in about 1977 or 1978 New from Naperville music in the western suburbs of Chicago. The Serial # looks like it is Serial # 10460. However, the serial number stamp is very light and it may be 10468? This instrument has been stored for about 40 years in a custom travel case. I have loved this instrument, but it was rarely played the first few years I owned it and then locked away ever since. I have tested the operation and all keys, oscillators, pots, filters, switches and wheels are working properly.

There is a cosmetic issue with the right side and the rear of the walnut case. The foam in the travel case degraded over 40 years and bonded with the lacquer finish on the cabinet. I removed as much of the foam as possible manually. Then I tried a bit of soap and water to remove the remaining foam from the finish. When this did not work, I tried some lemon oil and that softened the foam embedded into the lacquer. I then attempted to use a plastic card to remove some of the softened foam off of the wood finish but it appeared that the laquer was also coming off. Rather than continue attempts to remove the foam and damage the finish I have left it as is. This case may be cleaned up, refinished, or restored or there are new replacement cases available. I have left the case restoration decisions up to the new owner or the new owner may just decide to play this instrument as it was designed to be. Everything about this synthesizer is original and functional. It does not deserve to be stored away in a box anymore.

It is well past the time for this amazing instrument to be owned by someone who can truly appreciate it and create music with it as it’s inventor would have wanted. The travel case will be included with the Minimoog but the foam in the case on the right and the rear needs to be replaced. I have included photos of all of the above. Please help me find a good home for my Minimoog where it will be appreciated.” Click here to search for synths on eBay

Moog Minimoog Model D

“A genuinely fantastic example of a Minimoog Model D, Williamsville.

Cosmetically it’s in excellent condition and technically perfect. The oscillators are incredibly stable for a Model D, and filters as beautiful as you’d expect.

If you know this synth, there’s little more to say, if you don’t, it has been and always will be the greatest synth every created. We are slimming down our setup, and as we have so much Moog gear including other Minimoogs, this is a reluctant sale, and the best of the lot.It’s been serviced in the last month by our synth tech Nick Montoya of Moog Music.

NOTE: it seems that the original plastic protection is still on the panel near the pitch bend wheel. Though it’s slightly bubbling, we’ve left it in place. We thought we’d leave it up to the new owner to remove it or not.” Click here to search for synths on eBay

” Very good cosmetic condition for its age, one missing knob and the silver part of another knob is missing. These can be found online on ebay for less than $15 a piece. Some scratches and scuffing but still a nice Minimoog. Functional but may require a tuning to be in tip top shape which is advisable when purchasing any synth that will be transported far from its original location. Also included is a full on Kenton MIDI Retrofit kit which cost me close to $400. I never got around to installing it but it would make this Mini totally complete. So that kit is unused, uninstalled, and fully complete. Also, this is the NEW OSC version as the serial number is above 10XXX which greatly improves the tuning stability of these beautiful instruments. Sad to see her go but it is what it is.
