Celebrating the Moogseum’s Second Anniversary and Bob Moog’s 87th Birthday with Moogseum Mocha by The Hop Ice Cream! Limited time offer, pre-order now
The Moogseum and Bob Moog Foundation are thrilled to share our participation in Google Arts and Culture’s Music, Makers, and Machines exhibition, joining 55 partner museums and non-profits from around the world. The Moogseum’s online collection features 13 exhibits and over 275 archival materials from the Bob Moog Foundation Archives.
The vintage Minimoog Model D being offered, serial number 8903, was built at Moog Music’s Buffalo, NY-era factory during the late 1970s, has an estimated value of $6,500, and will only go up in value given the highly coveted nature of the synthesizer. This Minimoog has been carefully restored and future-proofed by the renowned synthesizer technician Wes Taggart of Analogics, and is in excellent technical condition. Taggart, also a lauded woodworker, fabricated the custom cabinet from rare African Makore wood, which is known for its beauty, strength, and durability.
Our Story in Our State Magazine
In the November issue of Our State magazine, which reviewed 57 museums across the state of North Carolina, we are thrilled the Moogseum was billed as one of “8 Must-See Museums” in Asheville.
“Asheville may be best known for its traditional acoustic music, but Moog showed that the swirling, space-age sounds of his synthesizer could fit quite naturally against the mysterious backdrop of the Blue Ridge Mountains.” — David Menconi
