Moog Remakes Limited Classic Synths
Moog announced recently they are remaking one of their classic synthesizer Moog IIIc. This classic modular synthesizer will only be reproduced for a very limited time. Only 25 units are to be made and sold around the world. All units will be created using the same parts where possible and each instrument is hand made.
Its been over 50 years since the last Moog IIIc was produced. To find one in decent condition at a reasonable price is rare these days.
Each Moog IIIc unit consists of 36 modules which are put together by hand, including the 905-Spring Reverb, 984-Matrix Mixer and 10, 901-series audio oscillators. All of this is cased securely in a solid walnut cabin.
The remake of the classic synth has all the characteristics of the previous, older models. Right down to the imperfections caused by the build which in turn gives its unique sound. Using all the original documentation and circuit board schematics, the Moog IIIc are built from scratch, by hand, in the Moog factory in Ashville NC, USA.
Trying to get hold of one of these bad boys will be tough too. Moog are only planning on recreating 25 units and each will have a price tag of £35,000. So to get your hands on one of these classic synths, get your self over to www.moogmusic.com quick.
