Win A Vintage Minimoog

US Bob Moog Foundation launches Raffle for a Model D signed by Herb Deutsch      10/02/22

Win A Vintage Minimoog


The Bob Moog Foundation has announced its fundraising raffle featuring a highly-coveted, fully restored vintage Minimoog synthesizer signed by legendary pioneering synthesist Herb Deutsch. The raffle begins on February 9th, to commemorate Deutsch's 90th birthday, and serves as an homage to his seminal contributions to the Moog legacy. It ends on March 7th, 2022, 11:59pm ET, or when all 4,500 tickets sell out, whichever comes first. Tickets are $20 each, six for $100, 14 for $200, or 40 for $500.

Funds raised from the raffle will be used to expand the Foundation's hallmark educational project, Dr. Bob's SoundSchool, which has inspired over 20,000 elementary school students through the science of sound. The raffle will also help support the Moogseum, an immersive, experiential facility located in Asheville, NC, which brings Bob Moog's pioneering legacy and the science of sound and synthesis alive for people of all ages. The Moogseum, which opened in late May of 2019, has welcomed over 14,000 visitors from all over the world, despite significant challenges due to the pandemic.  

The Minimoog featured is serial number 11,535, built at Moog Music's Cheektowaga, NY factory during the late 1970s. The Foundation believes that it has an estimated value of $10,000 but that, due to the highly coveted nature of this archetypal synthesizer, and the iconic signature from Herb Deutsch, it is likely to increase in value. This Minimoog has been meticulously restored by revered synthesizer technician Wes Taggart of Analogics, who also crafted its new custom walnut cabinet enclosure. It is in excellent technical and physical condition.

Executive Director, Michelle Moog-Koussa, told us, "The Bob Moog Foundation is thrilled to offer this rare Minimoog synthesizer signed by Herb Deutsch on the occasion of his 90th birthday. We honor Herb for his undeniable place in synthesizer history, as the catalyst who inspired Bob Moog to design the very first Moog synthesizer. Bob could not have achieved his pioneering work without Herb's ongoing careful guidance and insight, starting with their work together in the summer of 1964, and lasting for decades thereafter. We hope the lucky winner of this Minimoog will be deeply inspired by this rare piece of history."
