The Bob Moog Foundation is raffling a Vintage Memorymoog in their 2017 Summer Raffle. Proceeds from the raffle will benefit the Foundation’s educational and historic preservation initiatives.
In a post on the Bob Moog Foundation website they write;
"Our summer heats up with a raffle for the highly coveted vintage Memorymoog Plus synthesizer, a very unusual and powerful polyphonic synthesizer with six voices for each of the three oscillators, MIDI, and a sequencer! It boasts a variety of other standard and unusual functions, which are detailed below.
Proceeds from the raffle will benefit the Foundation’s educational and historic preservation initiatives, making purchasing a ticket a win either way!
