WNAMM12: Moog Wins TEC Award for Slim Phatty

Given that most of our every waking hours during NAMM shows are taken up either shooting or editing videos, it's a rare event that any of us get time away from our computers, but this evening I sneaked off and visited the 27th Annual TEC Awards ceremony - and I'm glad I did, too.

Apart from performances by Steve Vai - who was honoured with the Les Paul Award - with Billy Sheehan and other special guests, one of the highlights for me was the award to Moog Music for Musical Instrument Technology/Hardware for the Slim Phatty.
I'd been chatting to the Moog guys before the show, and they really did not expect to win an award, so it was great to see the smiles on their faces when their name was called out.

Actually I'm not sure if the award shouldn't have been for 'Manufacturer's Name Most Likely to be MisPronounced', but hey, good for them anyway ;-]

They've been busy since the release of the Slim Phatty - checkout the video we shot today of their cracking new mini bass synth, the Minitaur, and look out for another coming tomorrow for their 500-series offering.
