they don't cost that much...get both types and see if you can tell a difference in sound/performance. but i wouldn't go less than 250V rating...ever see a capacitor explode? it makes a mess.

Re: Satin or Semi Gloss Finish for Minimoog????

i have 2 model D's...1974 is light-stained, 1978 is dark-stained....neither has much of a shine. but i think i'd pick semi-gloss over satin...you can dull it down with extra fine steel wool or a scotch brite pad if you need to. http://sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc6/hs041.snc6/167175_1610624106...

Re: Moog MG-1 Rot

years ago, i cleaned up the innards of an Opus 3 that had the foam goo sludge problem. I think i used rubbing alcohol to disolve the residue...or maybe lighter fluid

Re: Voyager Old School cabinet hardwood type?

"The OS is sold with only one wood panelling option, "traditional ash". However, a few limited edition models were housed in white wash cabinets."

Re: Broke MF103 Potentiometer - Please advice

you should contact moog tech support....they probably can sell you a replacement. finding one off the shelf, with the correct resistance value and taper, 'D' shaft and PC-mount lug spacing is going to be tough.

Re: Hiss from mag pickups

what about trying the different pickup selector switch settings and knob settings....try all the different combinations of settings and knob positions. does the hiss change at all? if so, you might find a problem with just one of the pickups or pickup wiring, or control knob wiring. also, i would ta...

Re: Moog Prodigy Issue

a pot is a variable resistor....the mechanism which causes the variation may be broken, leaving the pot functioning more like a fixed-value resistor. if this were the sutuation, the modulation circuit would function, but you'd lose the ability to alter the amount of modulation

Re: Moog Prodigy Issue

i would leave the wheel alone....check the pot, making sure there are 3 wires coming from it, and that the plug those wires connect to is securely connected to the main PCB. if you have a meter, check the pot (10k) to make sure it's still working... http://www.hylander.com/images/schematics/moog/Moo...
