What comes with a new Taurus 3? ~ ♥ LOVE ƒor T3 ♥

Post by misterpete » Mon Dec 31, 2012 10:28 am

What comes in the box with a new T3? Should there be a printed manual or a CD?
The original owner said he 'couldn't remember— but will look around and send it to me if he finds it' I just got the instrument in the original box with styrofoam ~ no documents, or anything else.

... but omg ♥ ♥ ♥ WOW! ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ The T3 is BRILLIANT!

I moved my question over here, from this thread: viewtopic.php?f=7&t=16005 in case a Taurus owner might be more likely to see it and respond. Thanks!

There should definitely be a printed manual and a nice certificate/letter from Mike Adams with a gold seal on it.

You can get the manual and latest OS from this website though, so no huge loss.

maybe addendum/errata aswell.. but thats redundant if you have the latest FW.. there was a local power cable supplied with mine aswell (Australia)

for what its worth i remember reading that Moog wont honor the warranty unless it can be returned in the original packaging (or road case i assume).. thats probably not a hardline rule though. but if it's still in its warranty period its worth thinking about i guess..

no CD's or anything. the Certificate/Letter is nice. :)

You should find out if he registered it on http://www.taurusbass.com/ aswell..

Congratulations on geting a Taurus, mine arrived about 4 weeks ago now and i couldnt be happier with it. Its my very first analogue/hardware synth and the live potential of it just blows me away.. Very unique piece, i dont see myself ever parting with it. :D

LUCKY MAN ~ I bet it won't be the laast :lol:

Actually in this case I wasn't concerned about the warranty*, however, I would absolutely like to register at http://www.taurusbass.com/ and buy whatever hard copy manual & T3 PCB shirt or whatever items are available.

I realize it was not ideal buying my T3 like this. In retrospect, I probably could have and should have paid a lot less all things considered. The guy drove it in and delivered it to me from a town about 90 minutes away. The 'scuff' he described on craiglist turned out to be a big chunk dented into a wood side-panel, but this was love at first sight. I completely lost all common sense and felt like I was rescuing an abandoned animal. Once we unboxed it and set it up between the two Voyagers right in front of me in my studio, like that ~ that was it. Game Over, Man!


* FYI I have a two-year warranty with the XL but Sweetwater isn't selling T3s anymore ~ the warranty situation here with Canadian local dealers and distribution is not ideal. In that respect it doesn't seem like all that much has changed since those Taco Bell Analog Days :D

If you want to register at http://www.taurusbass.com/ you'll need the unique code that was printed on the certificate/letter that should have been in the box when the original owner opened it.

If he cant find it, i suppose Moog may still be able to dig it up if you give them your registration number, maybe?

I'll be intrested to hear your thoughts about what makes the T3 unique after you get to know it a bit better, I love it, but I dont have other units to compare it to, so i'm sure atleast some of the charm must be lost on me..

Maybe you can still get wood panels from Moog.

I don't understand how anyone could let a scratch like that happen to their T3. :shock: Even my own doesn't have a major scratch like that, and I left it in the hands of UPS...TWICE! The case is beat to hell, but the Taurus itself has a very minor scratch on the wood panel, not nearly as bad as this!

What's the serial number? It has the latest firmware? You probably won't find a complete T3, because only synth nuts keep their manuals and paperwork, and synth nuts don't sell T3's GENERALLY speaking.

That's a later one. It's probably a good value at $1500-$1600 without the manual and certificate.

My T-3 just got it's 1st ding at a gig last week - almost identical to the one pictured above. :(

If you gig with your Taurus, dings are going to happen - there's just no getting around it. I bought mine specifically to play live, so I take the inevitible bumps & bruises as par for the course....

Yes this this little dent in my sweet Taurus cheek is just a dimple, really ~ a beauty mark that gives it a little extra Mojo. It kinda reminds me of Kirk Douglas! :lol: It doesn't need anymore rough treatment, though ~ that's for sure. I ordered a dustcover from Moog and they processed the order straightaway - it's already on it's way and will be arriving soon. I hope somebody down there can find me a manual.
Do you use one of the MOOG road cases or have you found another solution?
