Re: Just bought a Model D on eBay...

Eric - in the instructions, it refers to it as leather, but it feels more like imitation leather and the other side is a soft foam. The back seams have velcro so you can easily take it on and off. I can't imagine that moisture would be a concern, but I guess that depends on your climate. I guess you...

Re: Just bought a Model D on eBay...

I got the cover from here:

A little pricey, and it's over seas, but it's definitely worth it.

Re: Just bought a Model D on eBay...

HA!!! I wished!!! I seriously doubt I could ever sell it for what I have into it. I wished I had sent it to Chris @ This Old Synth the first time around... But I'm very comfortable knowing that it IS slowly appreciating... UNLIKE my Voyager.

Re: Just bought a Model D on eBay...

I was able to refinish the case while Chris worked on everything else... what a satisfying experience putting the "perfect" pieces back together (hopefully for the last time!).

Re: Just bought a Model D on eBay...

Thanks to Chris from THIS OLD SYNTH! I can not recommend him highly enough. This is a night and day difference compared to the previous service experience. Not only is he meticulous, but his prices are extremely reasonable. I'm absolutely delighted in every regard.

Re: Just bought a Model D on eBay...

Leo - Yes, I believe if I had gone with the opto-key kit originally it would have solved all of the problems. Looking forward to seeing how it works! Attached are the photos of the new case - this thing is really built like a tank! Total price with shipping was $363, and it only took a couple of wee...

Re: Just bought a Model D on eBay...

Analog Lab was very receptive to my problem. They offered to pay for half of the opto-key kit, and install it for free. In the end, I decided I didn't want to send it back in hopes to do it myself, so I asked for a little more of a credit since they wouldn't be installing it. The shipping alone was ...

Re: Just bought a Model D on eBay...

Analog Lab contacted me and apologized for the screw up, plus they offered to split the cost of the opto-key, and install it for free. I am very grateful they are attempting to correct this problem. Not sure if I want to send this thing out again, especially since I already took it apart and sent th...

Re: Just bought a Model D on eBay...

Hello Chris: I know the bushings were fairly new - hopefully the bushing pots were correctly aligned as well. How can I go about purchasing the opto-key kit? I'm ready to make that purchase now. Perhaps I can handle the simple things like cleaning the contact connectors, etc. Just maybe it will be g...

Re: Just bought a Model D on eBay...

Hello Chris - thanks for the reply! I definitely don't want to mess around with correcting the key contact issue - I plan on doing the opto-key mod myself. Shouldn't this correct all of the bad key issues? Can you please explain why you think the keyboard itself needs work if even if I plan on insta...

Re: Just bought a Model D on eBay...

Alain - Thanks very much for that info. I had a feeling it was user error - I already have the entire unit completely apart and removed from it's case so it can get refinished. I may try hooking up the unit out of it's case and testing that know that I have the right info. Yes, I'm very sad it cost ...

Re: Just bought a Model D on eBay...

I finally received the Moog! It was packed very well, but I immediately noticed that something was rattling around the inside of the panel. Turned out a screw and an insulated washer holding one of the boards had fallen out - the other screw was totally missing. Nothing serious. Some of the keys sti...

Re: Just bought a Model D on eBay...

No worries, and thanks again to everyone for the feedback. It's very helpful. I can confidently say the owner was NOT at fault. When the unit was shipped, the screws holding the contact board had ALL come loose. As I learned, the contact board is normally held on with rubber grommets. Whoever servic...

Re: Just bought a Model D on eBay...

Alain /Chris: Thanks for taking the time to explain all of this. Chris, I actually came across your site when I was looking for service centers, but chose Analog Lab because they were in the same state. My intent is to have an unmolested mostly original minimoog that I can keep and enjoy for a long ...
