CONDITION:

Good used vintage shape, Tested and all working for the most part. the “NOISE” slider on the end is wobbly and only works correctly if you pull up on it, otherwise the noise is always on, also missing the slider cap. some knobs and slider caps are not original. the oscilator pot has a broken shaft, I found a small knob that fits it so it is usable and it works. Please see all pictures for condition.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Moog Taurus

“For sale is a set of vintage Moog Tauras Mk 1 bass pedals. They work perfectly & are in excellent condition, other than obvious blemishes & scratches you’d expect to see on an item of this age. I bought them around the mid eighties & they have served me well over the years during my younger days. I shall really miss them & it’ll bring a tear to my eye when they leave me as they are of sentimental value. But needs must as they say. Included is a semi-flight case with wheels which I had specially made by 5 Star Cases. The pedals are pretty heavy so the wheels are really useful on the case if you’re intending to cart them around.”

Moog Taurus II

moog tauris ii “For sale is a moog Taurus II vintage analog synthesizer. It is the same synth as a rogue but no keys. It sounds great. The bass this guy puts out is devastating.

This Taurus does not come with the pedals. It does come with a s-trig converter cable. You can fully control it with CV gate/trigger with any analog sequencer or midi/CV converter. It also comes with a jameco power supply.

As far as I can see it is fully functional. All knobs, sliders and switches affect the sound the way I would expect. All jacks work. The wheels work.

Cosmetically, there are imperfections aplenty. See pics. A switch lever is broken in the modulation section. The switch is still functional.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

moogtaurusii “This Moog sounds incredible.
Originally designed to be used with pedals, this one has a MIDI kit installed.
I’ve used it with a variety of controller keyboards and have sent it MIDI tracks from the computer. Works really well. I never had pedals, so none are included.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Moog Taurus II

taurus-ii “RARE Moog Taurus II 2 Foot Pedal synthesizer. Analog Synth Control Brain, one and a half octave foot pedal unit, connecting cable, original MOOG carry bag for the brain and power source. Used by groups like Genesis, Rush, King Crimson, Pink Floyd, ELP, The Police.. huge killer ANALOG sound! Working 100%, but may need some cleaning.. The sustain switch tip near top right area is broken off.. This does not seem to affect it’s main functionality. Does not include a mic stand. There are not very many of these available.. and values keep increasing. A copy of the owner’s manual/technical specs is included. Other than a really awesome instrument to play and own.. this is also an investment and a piece of Moog history!” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Moog Taurus II

taurus ii “You are looking at a fully functional MOOG Taurus II with pedals. Just serviced at Switched On here in Austin TX. Comes with a brand new 1/4 economy ‘Tuffbox’ road case that i paid $150 for off of Amazon. This unit is all original and comes with users manual. Comes with midi cable and power adapter too. See photos before bidding. Good condition with light signs of age. The base of the Taurus where the mic stand screws in is chipped. It does not effect function. I put some plumbers tape on the threads to increase tightness of connection. Thanks and good luck. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Moog Taurus II

taurus ii “I purchased this complete from the original owner early 1990’s. Although he was using it live it was transported in a flight case and I believe was personally handled by him [no roadies]. It was in very good shape and he seemed pretty level headed. If I recall correctly it was only a couple of years he was using it, sporadically at that. He was mainly a bassist and was messing around with pedals.

I sold the [huge] flight case early on. The pedals themselves fell prey to an attempt by me to modify them which shall not be spoken of 🙂 , suffice it to say they are long gone. I saved all the innards [springs, felts, etc] and the circuit boards.

It came with the Moog soft gig bag which I also sold some time ago.

The circuit boards/switches are fully functioning. They can be clipped together easily and will control the Taurus as is, carefully moving contacts with your finger [tested before listing].

Late ’90s I had a tech put together the hand controller, it is simply switches with resistors just like the original, and a trim pot thingy on the end for tuning. 3 of the switch caps have gone missing [see pic], I believe I used “Whiteout” typing corrector for the color. The second faceplate in pic was from my first attempt at a box, later I just went with a generic from radioshack.

NOTE: The cable for the hand controller was custom made, it has a mini-din plug on the controller end and standard on the brain end. I seem to recall not being pleased with this, I believe I asked for regular size. Also it is really long. Just giving a heads up, if you’re out working with this you’ll have to plan ahead for a spare cable.

The brain also got a good cleaning and lube by the tech. If I recall correctly something original had got quite gunked up in there. The original power supply was malfunctioning, he cracked it open and fixed it. Also came up with a new generic one and spliced the correct plug onto it.

When testing I was surprised to find no scratchy pots or sliders. Wouldn’t hurt to open it up and go through it though, last time was 20 years ago.

I myself only took the unit out and about probably a dozen or so times. Other than that has been in my smoke and pet free home studio.

Sounds great! Unlimited sounds/noise/experimental/analog bass etc. I am selling because I have a huge backlog of music ideas [requiring different tools] which I’ll never get to if I keep stuff like this around to distract me.

Note the print on the Contour Generator is worn, not sure what happened there or if it came to me like that, possibly from cleaning. Also, there is a chip out of the front right wooden end cheek. It actually looks like it was cut out [see pic], perhaps the other guy needed that to fit just right on his rig.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Moog Taurus

taurusi“For sale is the Moog Taurus 1. If you are looking at this, then you probably know all about it. This item is in great cosmetic condition. It was my father’s and he was the original owner. He kept it in the custom made case whenever he was not using it, and babied it otherwise. All of the parts are intact and original. I recently had the pedals serviced, and all of the components were tested and measured in great working order. The only problem with the pedals is that the contact board is all original. Meaning, the pedals work when the contacts have been cleaned. When I brought them in to be serviced, they worked fine, and every pedal fired perfectly. After time, the contacts became dirty again and not all of the pedals worked. These contacts are a mechanical connection, so when it gets dirty, they don’t work. A lot of people have had their contacts replaced with a modern style contact board. I’ve seen these go for anywhere from 200-300. I decided that I did not want to replace anything and keep it original. I am selling because I have no real use for them and would like to see them go to a good home where someone will take care of them and love them much as my father did.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Moog Taurus II

” Here is a set of MOOG TAURUS II pedals, circa 1982. This system is cosmetically a 9/10, and sonically an 11 out of 10.

While many modern day samplers do an outstanding job of recreating vintage instruments, the one area they consistently fall short in is reproducing bass frequencies accurately. Side by side comparisons will blow you out of the water. I have owned a number of vintage Moog I and II units, and this one is the finest of the group. I have also found the II series to be more versatile and “creative”, but your mileage may vary.

I treat my audio gear fanatically, and it shows. Everything works 100%, no excuses or issues, and this will arrive to the lucky winner with the original owners manual (shown), and the original leather or pleather carry case for the head (also shown), as well as some preset templates. I am the second owner for this unit, and it has never left my personal studio.

I would keep this Moog for 1,000 years, but I am moving to a tropical island next year, and need to reduce the hardware footprint of my studio. It will be painful, so Im removing the band aid slowly. I’ll be listing some vintage instruments and amplifiers, and some rather eccentric pro-audio items over the next few weeks/months, so check back.” Click here to visit listing on eBay
