Nope, not true. Geddy & co. paid for their gear. They must like the LP OK because they just bought another Stage II fairly recently, to go with their two (I think) LP Stage synths.

Moog operates on too small of a margin to give away free gear to anybody, no matter how big they are. This also means that any artist who uses our stuff must like it well enough to pay for it... no "I'll endorse your stuff so I can get a freebie" type deals in our world. I like this because it seems more genuine to me. Authenticity is a big deal, to my way of thinking...

That's good info. i always hated things like the recentish Status Quo endorsment of the Yamaha Pacifica Tele, yet on stage they still use their Fender Teles. Really genuine. :roll:

Cool to hear about them buying their Phattys. Phattae??

In any case, I figured that Moog was too small to give stuff away like that.

And even though this is a Taurus forum, I just want to mention how awesome my LPte is. I've never owned a Mini (yet), but I have owned some decent vintage moog stuff (Polymoog, Micromoogx2, Prodigy), and the LP definitely captures the spirit and vibe of those machines and sounds IMHO, better. Factor in midi, presets... and the kick ass distortion in the filter... You know where this is going.

Finally, I can't wait for my T3's... They're gonna be beautiful, and rock in every conceivable way that rockage can occur.

I truly hope your house has no structural problems...depending on the amp and speaker(s) you use, you may want to hire a building inspector before you get your Taurus III. :lol:

right now, just a set of Rokit 8's, no sub.

I also have a pair of 100w keyboard amps with 15" speakers in them, and a pair of Yorkville 350w powered monitors. So it won't be as epic as it could be. But I live near a few bass players, and a mutimillion dollar recording studio. So there will be structural damage, just not at my place ;)

Or at least have the house inspected after you've played your new T3s!
