Damn, you're in LA and you haven't gotten to play one yet?

I'm from San Diego, but I once drove up to Analogue Haven (best analog synth retailer on the West Coast) to try a Voyager (AE) for the first time. They also had a Doepfer Modular for customer testing, and a vintage Minimoog in the back for eyes only. Analogue Haven is based in Pomona, but as of a couple of months ago, they closed their store front! All you can do is order online now. You should've gone when you had the chance.

I don't really spend that much time in shops that sell synths.

Shoot. I was planning to stop by Analogue Haven next month when I'm out that way.

Analogue Haven split in half. One owner kept the Analogue Haven name and went mail order only. The other owner kept the Pomona location and renamed it Noisebug. So there's still a store there to visit. Last time I was there they had some Moog stuff setup.

I would have to go to another state to see a Voyager. I think there's only Banjos for sale in Alabama. :(

I wouldn't be suprised if there was a place in Mobile that sold them, but at the very least you are just a stones throw from New Orleans and surely someone there has Moog.


Sometimes I forget that some of the bigger cities in the south are still "in the south".

Hint - Noisebug groups their used gear and sale items on one page.

They've got a used OS for $1999, an Oberheim 4 voice for $3999, and a fully serviced Prophet 5 for $2499! I don't care who you are, you can't beat those deals. :shock:

Hey Erick, Not so I have only found Little Phatty Stage's in stock. And you are aware of my Guitar Center Moog Lunch hour faux pas that was never fixed, right? :twisted:

Things are cheaper around here. New OS for 2K plus tax. Used LP's for 800. Foogers at good prices. There is a performance edition (Black) Voyager in the case, but I've never asked what they wanted for it.

I guess its regional, there are a few cities in Arkansas not yet affected by the recession. A city hard hit might have some Voyagers dirt cheap.

It very well could be a buyers market.
