As part of its fall raffle, the Bob Moog Foundation is giving away a fully restored vintage Memorymoog Plus synth. The device was previously owned by Dr. Fink of The Revolution, who used it on three of the American rockers’ tours: Purple Rain, Around The World In A Day and Parade.
The featured Memorymoog Plus was originally built at Moog Music’s factory in Buffalo, New York. Its serial number is 3527 and is estimated to be worth between $8000 and $10,000.
According to the Bob Moog Foundation, the synth’s restoration was carried out by reputable technician Wes Taggart. Its features include six-voice polyphony, three VCOs, MIDI compatibility as well as a polyphonic and monophonic sequencer. Each voice comes with a dedicated 24dB voltage-controlled filter, a feature that led to the synth being referred to as “six Minimoogs”.
The raffle is live now and runs until 23 September at 11:59 ET. Proceeds will support both Dr. Bob’s SoundSchool – the Bob Moog Foundation’s educational project – and the recently opened Moogseum.
