Bob Moog Foundation announces fundraising raffle for fully restored vintage Minimoog synthesizer signed by Geddy Lee


The Bob Moog Foundation has announced a fundraising raffle for a fully restored vintage Minimoog synthesizer signed by Geddy Lee, the legendary synthesist, bassist, and vocalist for the band Rush. The raffle begins on February 6 and ends on February 27, 2023, at 11:59 p.m. ET, or when all 10,000 tickets sell out, whichever comes first. The raffle is open internationally.

Bob Moog's legacy stands out as a pioneer, an inventor, and a stylist. He helped initiate styles of music that wouldn't have otherwise been possible without his contribution.

Geddy Lee.

Tickets are $25 each, five for $100, 12 for $200, or 35 for $500, and can be purchased here. The winner will be announced on Friday, March 3, 2023.

The Minimoog featured is serial number 4070, built at Moog Music's Williamsville, NY, USA factory on Feb 14, 1974. It has been meticulously restored by synthesizer technician Jareth Lackey of Synthpro Restorations, who specializes in the restoration of vintage Moog synthesizers. It has a desirable modification: the Opto-Key upgrade, originally created by Kevin Lightner, which replaces the original mechanical contacts with infrared light sensors, eliminating contact cleaning or wear. The Opto-Key upgrade also includes MIDI In and as well as MIDI Out. The MIDI jacks were modified in a very discreet manner, to prevent holes in the chassis. The Minimoog is in excellent technical condition, and has minor cosmetic flaws, as is commensurate with a synthesizer of this vintage.

The Minimoog has an estimated value of $10,000 USD. Due to the highly coveted nature of this archetypal synthesizer, and the signature from Geddy Lee, it is likely to increase in value.
