Moogs New Grandmother Synth Channels Radioshack

US Limited edition run for Moogfest      14/05/18

Ahead of Moogfest,  coming up in Asheville NC at the end of the week, Moog have announced a new limited edition mono synth which apears to be a semi-modular analogue synthesizer.

It seems to be designed in a modular style with each section of the synth having its own separate module, with two analogue oscillators, plus that Moog ladder filter, HP 1 pole filter, Sequencer/Arpeggiator and a Spring reverb.

Visitors to Moogfest will be able to buy the Grandmother at $899 with the first 500 units being a special Moogfest edition and coming with an exclusive denim jacket.

Reminds us of some kind of lovechild of the Radio  Shack MG-1 and a kids electronics kit circa 1980.
