huh ? Why ????

I think I have a couple of spares around, I'll exchange a Moog sticker for a Korg one (nice to see you have received them from Roland and Korg at least).... I'll put one on my PS-3100.

Why? Sorry - I thought it was clear what I meant: Moog seem totally uninterested in badging the instruments that were sold in Britain when the Moog logo couldn't legally be used. Now it can be used, you'd expect them to want their instruments to be identifiable on stage, but they don't seem interested.

Thanks for the the offer of a swap for a Roland or Korg sticker. When I bought an MS20 many years ago it had Korg stickers all over it (I'm not sure why, as it had `Korg' on the back in big letters), but I sold that a while ago. I was assuming if I told Korg or Roland why I need a large sticker they'd be happy to provide one, but I haven't asked as I'm not gigging with the Voyager.

Did you ever write to someone at Moog and ask for one? You can always buy one also.

I've never seen anyone get so worked up about a sticker !! I'll tell you what, since you obviously haven't got the Roland /Korg stickers you implied you have, let's not even bother with an exchange... I'll send you a Moog one for free... I was teasing you anyway, I've still got the nice original Korg logo on the back of my PS-3100.

Re. branding, you would imagine that anyone even remotely interested in the synths would recognize a Voyager... even without a sticker for the really clever ones.

I don't think anyone's getting this at all.

My point is that there's a whole series of Moog products in Britain that are basically unbadged because Moog didn't have the rights to the Moog name for trading purposes at the time.

You'd expect Moog to have been keen to put their logo on those instruments as soon as the name became legally available again, but very oddly they seem to have made no effort to do so.

My comments were made because of that very odd business decision - or lack of a business decision.

I know very well I could buy a Moog sticker if I wanted to. I'm not such a cheapskate that I refuse to do that - after all, I happily spent £2000 on a Voyager. My point is, as I keep saying, that it's simply weird that Moog aren't keen to get their unbadged synths showing the Moog logo now they can legally do so. Usually companies are keen to put their logo on their products, and Moog do that for the rest of the world and would have done it in Britain if they had the right to the name in the early 2000s.

I made a joke about badging my synth with a logo from one of Moog's competitors to make the point that Moog won't be publicised by people using unbadged synths on stage, but nobody seems to have got it.

To be absolutely clear: I'M NOT BOTHERED ABOUT A STICKER FOR MY SYNTH. I'M SIMPLY NOTING HOW ODD IT IS THAT MOOG AREN'T INTERESTED IN BADGING THEIR SYNTHS. This topic asked "What's with the sticker thing?" My post was a reply to that question.

Did register my SUB37 a couple of months ago but did not get a Sticker yet. Is Belgium a country to far? :(

Would love one to stick on my Car. I know, seems childish but when they promise a sticker... :D :D :D

Perhaps after the promised editor they can devote some more time to working on those stickers :lol:
