Need help to save our Moog?

Post by NicholasJaxson » Mon Sep 14, 2020 4:06 am

Hello,

I'm Christophe, sound manager of Geneva University of Music. I just created an account on this forum because I'm looking for informations and it could be great if you can help me and our old Moog. I'm definitely not a specialist of this kind of technology.

As I said, we got an old model, maybe for 50 years, and it begin to be really really ill. We think it's time to send it to the doctor and hopefully extend its life to the next 50 years. It's very precious for us and we need to find a way to save it as soon as possible. Particularly because the number of specialists decrease every years.

We already contact musique-serice.ch, a local business, but they stop restoration of that king of instruments. They only repair. And we could understand this, the job isn't the same. The problem is, because of our inexperience, we can't tell what's exactly is out of order. Even if we use it regularly, list problems is quite difficult. So we need to find somebody in Switzerland or in Europe to make this restoration.

So I ask : do you know somebody wish can help us ? Of course, I imagine that kind of restoration is very expensive. But in my opinion, and I don't know if my boss will have the same, it's important to save this wonderful instrument.

I could understand this kind of newbie questions can piss off some guy like you. Asking themself : "How can it be possible to have a nice Moog like this and don't even know how it really work. It would be better placed in my studio !" I can just answer that, as a member of a school, I perfectly imagine the value of the transmission of this original instrument to the next generation of composers. And our institution can have the money to take care of it.

Thanks anyway.

Salut Christophe!

I would suggest Gerhard Mayrhofer at https://synth-werk.com/ He has a thriving business with Moog modular clone modules and systems as well as repair/restoration of vintage equipment. The best thing is he actually responds to email :) I have no affiliation with him other than I am a very, very happy customer. I have purchased a lot of modules to compliment my Moog Model 15 re-issue system. He and his team do excellent work of the highest quality.
