Moog are ceasing production of Dark Series for Grandmother and Matriarch.
Originally released with distinct multi-colored overlays, Grandmother and Matriarch have become staples in studio setups and live performance settings. Moog says that the all-black aesthetic of Dark Series came about as a nod to the modular control panel designs that inspired their very creation. The circuitry, spirit, and analog effects of Grandmother and Matriarch are derived from the classic Moog modular synthesizers designed by Bob Moog himself during the '60s and '70s.
A spokesperson told us, "Dark Series for Matriarch and Grandmother strikes the perfect balance between classic and modern with a timeless look of early Moog modular systems--and with all the functionality and versatility these two state-of-the-art sound design machines are known for. To own a piece of Moog history with your own Dark Series Grandmother or Matriarch synth before these instruments are no longer available, find an authorized dealer near you!"
