PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Super-rare and complete Moog Syn Amp for sale serviced and in excellent working order and superb condition (see note re speaker testing and cosmetic condition below). This unit contains many sought-after high-quality Moog processors and was designed by Bob Moog himself. It is very loud and very heavy.

See photos for more information on cosmetic condition (to follow).

Full spec from the original Moog catalogue is below.

This 400w amp features four channels of Moog Parametric EQ, a Ten Band Moog Graphic Eq, Moog Spring Reverb and Compressors for each amp. Overhauled by our techs – sounding great and fully-functional. We were keeping this for our studio, but the speakers take up a great deal of space and we’d prefer not to split the set.

There is a two-part speaker stack comprising 2 x 15″ drivers, mid range horn and wide dispersion tweeter.We’ve not yet hooked the speakers up to the amp as they’re currently in storage, but will do so before shipping. Apparently when they tested it in the Moog factory at full tilt, it nearly deafened everybody!

It’s in excellent condition overall and presents very well. Everything functions as it should and the speakers come with covers for transport. One of the integral wheels on the main speaker unit is broken, and there are scuffs/marks/dings to the external surfaces as you’d expect but overall it’s in very clean condition.

This is (as has already been mentioned) a very heavy set and will ship via van delivery rather than regular courier. We’re suggesting delivery only to mainland UK or EU. It would be possible to crate and ship to the USA, but the cost is likely to be in the many hundreds if not four figures. We would consider splitting the set if the buyer only wants the main unit, but would prefer a complete sale.

UK buyers, expect shipping in the region of £150 plus, depending on location; European buyers expect £250 plus…

From the original Moog catalogue:

Synamp

Ask a recording engineer – violins require one mike, while guitar require another. Ask a sound reinforcement technician – one speaker suits the bass while another suits the horns. Even amps have to vary as instruments vary. That’s why even the thought of creating the SynAmp was such a vast concept – because the synthesizer is such a vast instrument with so many sounds. The SynAmp was created to sound superb with every sound the synthesizer makes. And it was developed with expert help of the people who advanced the synthesizer ever since its beginnings – Moog Synthesizers have proven to be truly outstanding instruments. And now, thanks to the SynAmp, they’ll sound more outstanding than ever.
