Re: OPUS 3 purchased new in 1981. Now selling, but ISSUES

Before selling I would take a look at that foam - that stuff becomes the black goo of death after 30 years and needs removing. You may find it has found its way into all sorts of sliders. I ended up replacing all my sliders as there many with goo issues. Pots and switches should be reasonably OK, al...

MC has stated before (only recently in fact) that the Taurus 3 envelopes are digital.

Re: Taurus 3 100-240V 50/60Hz

No adapters required. The Taurus is universal in every sense of the word but definitely in its power supply. Just grab an IEC power lead with whatever plug you have for your country at the other end and away you go.

I am in the UK and use no adapters just to prove my point.

Re: Biggest Pipe Organ in the World (7 manuals)...

I love some of those modern ones - that one in Madison is a work of art in its own right.

I have sponsored the restoration of a 4' pipe in this organ near me:

Full restoration and concerts by next year. :D

Re: Cheap Taurus 3

I saw a set go, with flightcase, for around £900 a couple of years ago, which is about the same as that price, but cheap for the UK. If I didn't already have some I would definitely have jumped on that - almost worth getting for a spare. I can't see them going much cheaper now though. Yeah, I bought...

Re: Which Moog?

It probably is sponsorship, but coming from a TV background myself, I wonder if it wasn't a directorial decision. Everyone is co-ordinated in some sort of grey clothing and even the congas are grey. I wonder if they just wanted a very stark look with no text ruining the shots.
