Re: Custom wood on Minimoog Model D?

"The Model D is only made with 1 option for the wood. There are no customs workings with the Model D. We are keeping it as close to the original as possible." funny as all of the "originals" ive ever seen are a much darker color. And i suspect a different wood type as well. eg Ash instead of Oak. Ma...

Re: Minimoog Model D Rogue Screw

often when theres a screw floating around inside any unit (cassette deck, cd player etc) its one that was holding something and became dislodged.

Did you have a good look when it was open to see if there were any screw holes that were suspiciously empty?

Re: Custom wood on Minimoog Model D?

there is a guy on Ebay selling replacement wooden cases for Minimoogs. Not cheap but you can request any color you like. He makes them himself but they look really nice. I was seriously considering it because quite frankly i was disappointed in the pale "babyshit coloured" stain of my reissue when a...

Re: Gaze into my Minimoog Power Supply crystal ball...

just because i posted something on Gearslutz does not mean im a crazy nut (like some) that post on there. Im over 40, have a wife and 2 kids, and run 2 recording studios. Youve never posted on Gearslutz ever? Your argument seems to be "Blackout is a crazy nut, hes posted on Gearslutz before...THERE ...

Re: Gaze into my Minimoog Power Supply crystal ball...

it would jack the price out of the market. Funny. I just brought a DAB standalone radio for $49.95 with an internal power supply. Obviously its price was jacked up way high "out of the market" because of this. thats great that youve had "line lump" power supplies running for 30 years. I didnt actua...

Re: Gaze into my Minimoog Power Supply crystal ball...

and that Hooch, is all im really trying to point out in this entire thread... That anyone with this new mini should be buying 2 or 3 spare backup PSUs. NOW, if you plan on keeping your Mini, because if this decision by Moog. Or pay the price, later. (and i do tend to agree with you, if this synth is...

Re: Gaze into my Minimoog Power Supply crystal ball...

You'll find that a large portion of high end studio gear uses external PSUs. I wouldn't hesitate to own any of it simply because of an external psu. i never said that high end studio gear is no good because it uses external PSUs. Im just pointing out that the original Mini didnt have an external PS...

Re: Gaze into my Minimoog Power Supply crystal ball...

I don't think Moog will stop providing replacement parts for discontinued products easily. They still have MP201 parts and they are plans for updating Taurus III firmware. They have sold me parts for the Voyager just a couple of months ago and the guys from their tech support have told me they plan...

Re: Gaze into my Minimoog Power Supply crystal ball...

The only way to get the same life out of your mini and its PS as the original Mini is to reach down and behind your keyboard stand without spilling your beer or doing your back in, and switch it off at the wall socket every time you use it...thus turning off the power supply along with the synth. L...

Re: Gaze into my Minimoog Power Supply crystal ball...

heres the problem i see with the way Moog have done things with the re-issue and the power supply. In the original Moog, when you switched the front power button "OFF" , it dis-engaged the power supply and its caps...ie it turned the synth and its power supply off. This saves the capacitors and the ...

Re: Overdrive Light

hi captain thanks for responding. i guess im asking if it could blow up a diode or resistor inside or something if i am driving the mini into an overloaded world of distortion for an hour constantly. Im not asking if i could blow up the actual light! more if i could overheat something internally. I ...
