sam ash is taking orders too, but they apparently are using a photo of the tribute? might be a good way to get a tribute for 1249

im with you on the autotune feature. thats great. i wonder how it really works though and if iaffects the 'true' sound at all?

They both have features that I really dig though. I like the orange/red lights. but who doesnt want those sweet wood panels!??! i agree black might've looked better for the rubber sides. i totally want wood sides, but i think the bob signature is sort of cheesy. hmmmm, whats a guy to do?
Since the Tribute was a limited edition, I would buy the Tribute for only $100 more. There will be an unlimited supply of Stage editions, but only 1200 Tributes. Gotta think the value will be higher on the Tribute some day.

I can't see how people can think that one version looks so much better than the other. Does a black Porche look that much better than a red one? I'll take either, thanks. I like the look of the Stage, and the rubber sides will probably hold up better cosmetically what with transporting from gig to gig, but the wood on the Tribute looks Moogier to me.

They are both great looking synths, and I wouldn't mind owning both (I am sure that Moog would try to give me the matching serial number of my Tribute on a new Stage), but I think that I will save my money and put it towards the inevitable Voyager.....
Thanks Bob!!

wow. it's beautiful.

great call on the rubberized end pieces too.

despite the unrest regarding price, i think the phatty is really worth every penny saved for it, and this edition is no different.

the less red ones are AMBER, as are the wheels on the Stage edition. The more red ones are... well... kind of red. The LEDs that are blue on the Tribute are amber on the Stage; the ones that are purple on the Tribute are a kind of red/orange on the Stage edition.

Hey Amos,

Thanks for straightening this out.

I just had to laugh when I read this. The fact of the matter is, the LP is a really bitchin' looking little synth, Stage or Tribute. When people come into my home studio and see the LP sitting there, it just screams "Come take a look at me!!", and this is with the power off and no lights on at all.

I just think that it is kind of funny how people buy things in this day and age. When Bob Moog put out the original Minimoog 30 some years ago, I know that he spent a lot of time on getting the right design, but I wonder if people really went on and on about what color the different switches were, what color the power light was, etc.

We have two pages of entries here, discussing the actual color of the lights, whether the end panels should be black or grey (or wood), and whether we like the Moog logo on the back vs. the Bob Moog signature on the back. Years ago all anyone would have talked about was how cool the LP sounded.

I am not putting anybody down because of their preferences or musings on what looks best. I just think that it is funny that the looks of the two synths, while being only slightly different, are causing so much discussion and opinion.

How the synth world has changed. Now days the looks are almost as important as the sound, it seems.

By the way, while I prefer the looks of the Tribute and the blue lights, the Stage has an interesting Goth/Industrial look that haunts me enough to keep considering the purchase of a Stage version as well.

:D
Thanks Bob!!

Well, the new issue here is not the sound, we all know how it sounds and it sounds great! The only difference between this one and the tribute is the LOOK, and I think thats why only the look is being discussed here.

As stated by OysterRock, the sound and features of the LP have been discussed in great detail, what's being offered in the Stage Ed. is essentially a new paint job...only natural that people are commenting on it.
The volume of responce is evidence that the new Stage Ed. is causing quite a reaction..mostly very positive, I now someone who's selling their Tribute to get a Stage. If you watch ebay you'll be seeing a few Tributes FS for this very reason..people like the new paint job. Yeah i guess this all could be seen as funny, especially by moog, who should be laughing all the way to the bank with the new Stage Ed. LP. :lol:

I like the way the Stage Edition looks and in my opinion this is what this synth should be like... after all it's supposed to be a cheaper, cut-down unit (shame the price isn't a little lower).

Great that the end cheaks will look better longer and why not have some variation... I loved my multimoog for the very reason it didn't look (or sound) like my mini.

For those that like Bobs signature just buy a unit from the UK!!

Anyone seen the new RED Voyager "FIRE"?

it would be really nice if you could choose the color and design of the side panels

- 1972 chevy station wagon plywood look
- barbie pink
- kraut rock orange
- xmas red/green
- gothic black
- diy panels for your own artwork
- camo army look
- faux fur
- swiss cheese look
- snow white look
- tiger stripes look
- bling bling chav fake-diamond studded look
- st. patrick's day irish leprechaun look
- funky lemon yellow
- plexiglass seethrough look

that'd be nice! set of 3 styles / pick n mix 50 bucks.

:wink:
