Moog Music is pleased to announce the release of the limited edition 10th Anniversary Minimoog Voyager. The gold standard of synthesizers, the Moog is what the top talents –Jay Z, Nas, and Kanye West –choose. Now, as a testament to American Craftmanship, Moog has created a 24 Karat gold Voyager with the finest materials. More, Moog is handcrafting thirty one of these analog works of art, but only thirty are available for purchase worldwide. As a thank-you to its customers for making the Minimoog Voyager the best selling analog synthesizer of the last decade, Moog has set aside one of these rare and valuable instruments for one very lucky person to win (details for entry to be announced November 17th). Finally, as a special thanks to current Voyager owners, Moog will send all registered owners a small gift of gratitude for their amazing support.

“We are so thankful to the thousands of Minimoog Voyager customers for making the Minimoog the best selling analog synth of the last decade. Without them, we may not have been able to continue hand building instruments in downtown Asheville, North Carolina,” notes Mike Adams, CEO Moog Music. “Sending each and every one of them a small gift is a small gesture of our immense gratitude.”

The 10th Anniversary Minimoog Voyager is not just a synthesizer, but a work of art: Carefully dipped in a 24-karat gold finish, the classic wood housing has been neatly dressed in a custom, high gloss, black piano lacquer chosen specifically to accentuate the Japanese Awabi pearl adornment on the sidepieces. Moog has created a short video documenting the build process of this precious synthesizer, which can be seen here and/or on their website. Additional features of the 10th Anniversary Minimoog Voyager include custom translucent knobs, a glowing Moog logo with indigo illumination, gold headphone jack, all black switches, a personalized engraved gold plate, a letter pressed certificate of authenticity, and a hand bound user’s manual. Only 5 units are available for sale in the United States, with the remaining 25 units spread out across countries around the world.  See the list of our participating retailers here:

Moog is asking all Minimoog Voyager owners to update their registration information at www.moogmusic.com/register so that they may successfully receive a small gift in the mail. On November 16th, Moog will announce details on how to enter the 10th Anniversary Minimoog Voyager Giveaway.

As part of the celebration of the 10th Anniversary of the Minimoog Voyager, Moog has also created an interactive timeline where fans can learn about the 10-year history of this instrument and the artists who used it to define the sound of the last decade.
