Funds raised from the raffle will be used to continue growing the Foundation’s hallmark educational project, Dr. Bob’s SoundSchool, currently inspiring over 3,000 elementary school students per year through the science of sound, and poised to grow nationwide in 2022. The raffle will also help support the Moogseum, an immersive, experiential facility located in Asheville, NC, which brings Bob Moog’s pioneering legacy and the science of sound and synthesis alive for people of all ages. The Moogseum opened in late May of 2019, and has welcomed over 10,000 visitors from all over the world.
The Minimoog featured in the 15th Anniversary Raffle is serial number 6572, built at Moog Music’s Williamsville, NY factory during the mid 70s and has an estimated value of over $9,500. Due to the highly coveted nature of this archetypal synthesizer, and its iconic signature from Bob Moog, it will only go up in value. This Minimoog has been scrupulously restored by venerated synthesizer technician Wes Taggart of Analogics. It is in excellent technical and physical condition, with minor physical flaws that are commensurate with the age of the instrument.
