Re: Will new Model D parts be available to vintage Mini owne

You're seriously threatening to kick me off of the forum for mildly poking fun?

My intention was not to hurt anyone's feelings, and certainly not to "shame" anyone. I thought we were having a friendly conversation, not a legal battle.

Re: Will new Model D parts be available to vintage Mini owne

Using shaming language and names to discredit people because you don't like their views or their expertise. How lame and manipulative. Forgive me; I just assumed from the high condescending tone in these posts that one of you must be the reigning king nerd. But seriously MC, you obviously meant to ...

Re: Will new Model D parts be available to vintage Mini owne

But anyway this argument is ridiculous. The two of you are a couple goof balls and will obviously argue this minutia to your deaths in order to maintain your king nerd status in the Moog forums. All I'm saying is, 1. It was stated in a video that some parts are being re-manufactured. I don't know wh...

Re: Will new Model D parts be available to vintage Mini owne

As for the Chinese IC's... more often than not they are 'fakes'... you take a big chance buying them. I have been stung with Chinese components before. The odds are pretty high that you're not getting what you pay for from these Chinese distributors you mention...! Everything is from China. The odd...

I'd love to Tom, but I'm not aware of any particular remedy to this problem. It's like they're worn down, and too loose to make a solid click; although they still mechanically switch. You know what I mean?

Actually, Moog never did manufacture the UA726 in the first place...!


who said they did?

Re: Will new Model D parts be available to vintage Mini owne

I also read a quote that suggests Moog is re-manufacturing UA726s for this project. Well that quote was wrong. I'm an EE and have been under the hood of my own Minimoog, which is equipped with the 3046-based oscillator board. I can spot 726 and 3046 and discrete boards a mile away, and they are clo...

Re: Will new Model D parts be available to vintage Mini owne

Then, I stand corrected in regard to the panel mount parts. I've only seen a few snippets of press about it, and I was pretty impressed that they were using the original PCBs and re-manufacturing components. I was hoping that might extend to some of the hardware as well (like the switches I need). N...

Re: Will new Model D parts be available to vintage Mini owne

They can be dismantled, cleaned, lubricated and reassembled quite easily..! It might be relatively easy to clean and restore the switches to full electronic/mechanical functionality, but in order to restore that satisfying 'click' it looks to me like they need to be rebuilt. It's not easy. It's not...

Re: Will new Model D parts be available to vintage Mini owne

^ True dat. Just because it looks and sounds like a model D, doesn't mean that the parts are INTERCHANGEABLE. Of course, but from what I understand, vintage parts are actually being re-manufactured. They should be interchangeable. There's a photo from Moog-fest of an exploded *new* Model D, and fro...

Will new Model D parts be available to vintage Mini owners?

Hi, I'm stoked to see the Mini back in production, it looks beautiful, just perfect. I don't believe I'll be able to afford one, but I'm still super excited and can't wait to try one out. I'm hopeful, however, that Moog Music might make some of the newly manufactured parts available to people who ow...

Re: Impact of new model D on pricing of vintage Minimoog D

A brand new, factory perfect, Model D with aftertouch and CV outs for $3500 is gonna make it nearly impossible for these (mostly) rat dealers on ebay to ask $5000+ for a vintage model. The price of vintage Mini's are going to come down for as long as new Model D's are in production. Vintage synths i...

Re: 1130 Percussion Controller Restored

You think one of you guys could scan the bottom trace-side of the 1130 PCB? Kind of a hassle I guess... but if you happen to be disassembling one... I've been wanting to get a hold of one for use w my Mini, but I hardly ever see them anymore and they've become so unreasonably expensive. Was thinking...

Re: MiniMoog Replacement Mod Wheels? Clear ones?

Thanx for the wheels! They're super well made; I was really surprised how perfect they came out.

It wasn't the easiest thing installing them; it takes a little finesse; well worth the effort though. Its a small detail but it adds a lot of class. I love em.
