They'll sell out pretty fast...although they will do much better with the Taurus pedals, methinks.

... In fact, Moog is probably clearing capacity for the Taurus.

All things considered, there's probably nothing stopping Moog from bringing the OS back for a limited run sometime in the future...

What a bummer! I was looking forward to picking one of these up next year. I wonder why Moog is choosing to stop production.

Well that really sucks. I've been saving for one of these but it's going to take me a while to get the rest of the money together.

Most likely it wasn't sold that good. Otherwise it would not make sense to stop a product.
And the analog boards are stil made for the normal Voyager with memory. So it is not a matter of analog components.
keep on turning these Moog knobs

Sequence:
Prodigy * minimoog '79 * Voyager * MF102 * MF103 * MF104z * MP201 * Taurus 3 * Minitaur * Sub Phatty * MF105 * Minimoog 2017+ MUSE * One 16

For that matter if they are still tooled for it they could still in theory make the piano bar.

They like to reel us in with these limited edition runs. Heck, Now Id like to have one lol. Jeez. :lol: I think Mike Adams or whoever is the brains behind the marketing really knows what we fishies eat!

Ill bet those White Wash OS that NovaMusik was selling will be choise items in the future.

I always thought the Old School would have a very limited appeal but I appreciated that they had the huevos to put it out! 8)

I just hope there's still some around when I finally have the cash to get one and that the prices don't get jacked up.

Chris Stack is the marketing guy at Moog...maybe his name is Stacks...sorry, Chris, I don't recall how to spell your last name. :oops:

The PianoBar was NOT made by Moog Music, but rather, Buchla. Moog agreed to sell them for Buchla. :wink: There are still some online retailers that have the PianoBar listed on their websites, and memory sticks are available at Guitar Center.
