Moog has announced its plans to discontinue production of the Minimoog Voyager Select Series, described as ‘the top selling backlit analog synthesizer of all time‘.
The Select Series lets you choose from a variety of customizations, including woods and finishes and the color of backlights.
Moog will continue building the Select Series through the end of the year, with the final Select Series leaving the factory on Jan 1, 2013. During the remaining months of production, Moog has reduced the selling price on all Select Series Voyagers from $3,659 to $2,999.
“We are a small company that still builds by hand, so sometimes we have to make hard decisions about ending the life of even our most favorite products,” said Mike Adams, CEO Moog Music.
The discontinuation of the Select Series comes as Moog begins celebrating the 10th Anniversary of the Minimoog Voyager. The first Minimoog Voyager introduced the world to the next generation of analog synthesizers in 2002.
