Win A Vintage MiniMoog Model D with Herb Deutsch’s signature

By News No Comments

In the 1960s, Deutsch worked with Bob Moog on the creation of the early Moog modular systems and is credited with co-inventing the Moog modular.

The raffle began on February 9th, in honor of Deutsch’s 90th birthday, and will run until March 7th, 2022, at 11:59 p.m. ET, or until all 4,500 tickets have been sold. The raffle proceeds benefit the Foundation’s purpose, which includes initiatives such as Dr. Bob’s SoundSchool and the Moogseum.

Serial number 11,535, created at Moog Music’s Cheektowaga, NY plant in the late 1970s, is the Minimoog featured in the lottery. It is believed to be worth $10,000. Due to the desirable nature of this prototypical synthesizer and Herb Deutsch’s famous signature, it is expected to appreciate.

Wes Taggart of Analogic, a synthesizer specialist, expertly restored this Minimoog, as well as created its new handmade walnut cabinet enclosure. It’s in fantastic technical and physical shape.

Tickets for the raffle are now available for $20 apiece, six for $100, fourteen for $200, and forty for $500.

Win a Minimoog autographed by Bob Moog

By News No Comments

Acquiring a Minimoog is a dream come true for many musicians. Luckly, owning a Minimoog autographed by its creator, Bob Moog, is one of the prizes available in the current raffle organized by the Bob Moog Foundation.

The Bob Moog Foundation has been around for 15 years, having been founded a year after the remarkable man’s death in 2005. The Minimoog in hand was built in the mid-’70s and has been thoroughly repaired by Analogics synth expert Wes Taggart.

This synth is worth $9,500, and given its history and the fact that it contains Bob Moog’s autograph, it is yet to appreciate in the future.

The raffle is currently underway, with tickets costing $20 each, six for $100, fourteen for $200, or forty for $500. It will continue through the 30th of August, or until all 5,000 tickets have been sold. The money generated from the raffle will go toward Dr. Bob’s SoundSchool, the foundation’s educational initiative that teaches primary school kids “the science of sound,” as well as the Museum in Asheville, NC.
