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.
