The Bob Moog Foundation has announced a raffle for a vintage Memorymoog Plus synthesizer. This historic instrument, produced from 1984-1985, was one of the first polyphonic synthesizers with a memory bank for storing sounds, with the capability to hold up to 100 patches.
The raffle, which is open internationally, closes at 11:59pm (EST) on September 6, 2017, or when all 4,000 tickets are sold, whichever comes first. Proceeds from the raffle will benefit the Foundation's educational and historic preservation initiatives. Tickets to enter are $25 each, five for $100, or 10 for $200 and can be purchased through the Foundation's website.
The Memorymoog Plus being offered, serial number 2641, was built at Moog Music's Buffalo, NY factory and is valued in excess of $10,000. It was donated to the Bob Moog Foundation by supporter Lee Keeley and is in excellent technical and physical condition after having been meticulously serviced by vintage synthesizer specialist Wes Taggart.
