Re: Coming back... 3k for a new select series?

Thank you for the offer, but I'm really looking to get one brand new... and this time I plan on keeping it for the long haul! If I change my mind I will let you know.

Thanks again.

Re: Coming back... 3k for a new select series?

There is no choice with the select series at Armens. The only reason I'm interested is that it's the same choices I made when I purchased my new select several years ago. Walnut/Indigo. I tried to ask about their higher price, and they actually increased it! I guess it's just a demand thing.

Re: Coming back... 3k for a new select series?

I'm really trying to understand the market... on eBay, Armens Music has a select series in walnut/indigo for sale at 3500. This is the combo I ordered a few years ago and regrettably sold. I emailed them and asked why the price was so high and pointed out the 3095 asking price for a new select serie...

Re: Coming back... 3k for a new select series?

Thank you for the info! I will make a note of the s/n's to avoid. I'm quite certain the select series I bought a few years ago was in this range. I guess the last question I have is; if I get the performer with the blue wheel, will I have the same LED light lifespan issue with that as well, or did t...

Re: Coming back... 3k for a new select series?

Interesting about the backlight. I think I remember mine going all the way off when the knob was turned down. Either way it sounds pretty easy to switch off. I'm considering the tiger oak select series from Humbucker Music. They seem pretty fair at 2999 for a select series. I'm assuming they are lat...

Re: Coming back... 3k for a new select series?

I agree about the XL, but this size is a killer. My thinking is no matter what Moog comes out with next, even if it's the ultimate Poly, the Voyager is going to be a keeper since it was Bob Moog's actual design. I left a message for tech support at Moog on Friday to ask a couple questions, but they ...

Re: Coming back... 3k for a new select series?

Thanks for that input. Very Interesting.. I definitely prefer NOT to buy used, but what you're saying about the backlighting scares me.

Did you have to get yours replaced? Is this common for all select series?

Thanks again!

Coming back... 3k for a new select series?

Regrettably, I ended up selling my Voyager select series (walnut / indigo) a few years back right after I got it back from warranty repairs. It looked like Godzilla took it apart with a can opener - I never got over it and eventually sold it. Now I'm kicking myself. I just got the Prophet 6, and I l...

Re: New Voyager, dead OSC?

Thanks for the replies. It looks like this is not uncommon. I will contact Moog support.

New Voyager, dead OSC?

Hello all - I purchased a brand new Voyager select series about 2 years ago and have used it very little. It's been sitting in my home studio untouched. OSC 3 appears to be dead. It makes a tick noise when I press a key, and also when I turn the wave knob for OSC 3. I emailed Sweetwater, and they su...

Re: Patch for ELP's "From the Beginning" for the Voyag

As promised, I've locked my newbie ass in the house and have been working very hard on recreating this patch. I think I'm finally in the neighborhood. Smell what I'm cook'n?

Stay tuned.

Re: Patch for ELP's "From the Beginning" for the Voyag

Yes... the technical stuff you mentioned I don't understand at all (YET), but I definitely agree with the whistle/hum thing... that's the charm of the sound. Have you heard the preset patch that comes with the Voyager?

Re: Patch for ELP's "From the Beginning" for the Voyag

Let me start by saying that I'm a total novice when it comes to making sounds, even though I've been puttering for the past 20 plus years doing it. I just upgraded from a Phatty to a Minimoog, and today is my first day with it. I bookmarked this page a month ago because I was anxious to hear this pa...

I'm really trying to avoid shipping to Europe, last time I shipped a keyboard to Canada and it got really complicated and expensive...!
