Quick Moog Modular History

Bob Moog

Bob Moog began building his famous Moog modular synthesizer in 1964 and sold them through the Mid-70s. Surviving vintage Moog modular systems are rare as only 200-300 where built. They make fine collectors items but typically need new jacks, switches and other components to use as instruments.

Bob passed in 2005 and the Moog Music company continues under different ownership. In 2014, Moog Music began offering a reproduction of Keith Emerson's system priced at $150,000, and in 2015, began offering limited reproductions of the model 15, 35 and 55 systems. These systems are said to be faithful recreations of the vintage units using the same designs and components.

Bob's daughter Michelle promotes his legacy with educational programs and other projects through The Bob Moog Foundation.

Moog modulars are the inspiration for Synthesizers.com modulars. We use the same panel size, jacks and knobs, but we've modernized the power system, added MIDI, and improved tuning accuracy. See the articles below.
