The Bob Moog Foundationhas announced the launch of its annual raffle for an iconic, highly coveted vintage Minimoog® Model D synthesizer. This year’s prize has been signed by the legendary Stevie Wonder, whose career has helped shape popular music and inspired people worldwide. Stevie pioneered the use of synthesizers integrated seamlessly with acoustic sounds, which influenced the development of electronic music.
The Minimoog being offeredhas been played by Stevie, and his signature comes in the way of two fingerprints, which are affixed to the front panel of the synthesizer in a brass and plexiglass archival enclosure.
The vintage Minimoog Model D being offered, serial number 8207 was built at Moog Music’s Williamsville, NY factory, and is valued in excess of $5,500. With Stevie’s signature it is considered priceless. It has been fully restored by lauded restoration house Tone Tweakers and is in excellent technical and physical condition, with two minor physical flaws that are commensurate with the age of the instrument.
The raffle, which is open internationally, closes at 11:59pm on Monday, April 22, 2019, or when all 5,000 tickets are sold, whichever comes first. Please review the Rules and Regulations before entering.
