Synth lovers everywhere prepare to be stunned. Moog Music has announced that they are creating a limited run of reproductions of the Moog Synthesizer IIIc. This synthesizer built by Dr. Robert Moog is among one of the first pre-configured models created by the synth master and the reproduction series will be limited to only 25 units worldwide.
Vintage King is one of the few retailers who will be stocking these extremely limited synthesizers and we are taking pre-orders now by email and by phone at 888.653.1184.
The new reproductions of the Moog Synthesizer IIIc will be completely built according to circuit board files, documentation and art of the original synthesizer. Built by hand in the Moog Factory in Asheville, North Carolina, the IIIc will feature 36 modules, including ten 901-Series audio oscillators, the 905 Spring Reverb and the 948 Matrix Mixer.
The original Moog Synthesizer IIIc has had a lasting impact on the music world that is still being felt 50 years after its initial release. These synthesizers were hand-assembled by Dr. Robert Moog and his team of ten workers in Trumansburg, New York and used by visionary musicians to create otherworldly music. Classic records like Switched on Bach and Snowflakes Are Dancing are a direct product of the genius of Moog and the Synthesizer IIIc.
In reflecting on Moog's past and the creation of the Synthesizer IIIc, the design team at the storied brand has been inspired. "“Through archival designs, so-called obsolete electronics, and outmoded production processes, we are rediscovering the magic of our past," says Moog Music Production Engineer Anna Montoya. "It’s a privilege to build instruments in this way; it lets us reimagine what future tools can be. There is so much potential in this history.”
