What's going on with the Minitaur ?

Post by dave808 » Thu Mar 26, 2015 5:51 am

I'm trying to purchase a Minitaur here in the UK and not one Music Retailer has any in stock at all ?

Is the Minitaur ceasing production or something, or is a bigger better version coming from Moog.

People tend to forget that Moog's aren't built by robots, but by people. I had to wait almost 4 weeks for my Minitaur and 2.5 months for my Sub37. They can't seem to hire enough trained people fast enough to keep up with demand.

Which is good thing and a bad thing.

Any chance of ordering it from somewhere in America that's in stock and having it shipped?

I notice as i just checked Sweetwater has more on order too... I wouldn't expect a new version, just the few people in North Carolina working really hard to meet demands.

i have been told by a UK distributor, that the next batch of Minitaurs are due to be in between 4 and 8 weeks time. so i will have to wait a little while longer.

no, don't want to buy one from the US, i will be charged import duty, vat and handling fees.

You could buy a second hand one. They seem to be going quite cheaply these days.

And erm... I have one for sale. See link in my sig. 8)

A bigger and better version you ask? Already happened, it was the Taurus 3. :) And I had to wait nearly two years for mine so count yourself lucky!
