The Bob Moog Foundation has announced its spring raffle, featuring a vintage Moog Liberation synthesizer.
The raffle, a fundraiser in support of the Foundation’s projects, runs through April 20, 2015 or until all 2,000 tickets are sold.
The winner will be announced on April 24, 2015. Also included in the raffle is an original owner’s manual for the Liberation, written by Rock Wehrmann in 1980.
The Moog Liberation is a strap-on dual oscillator monophonic/polyphonic analog synthesizer with one voltage controlled 24dB/octave Moog filter (VCF) and one voltage controlled amplifier (VCA). It boasts a polyphonic section, which allows for synth-like chords, a ring modulator, noise generator, syncable VCOs, and a ribbon controller, located in the neck portion of the instrument.
It comes with two accessories, the interface/power supply and a 40′ cable. The instrument is in its original case, which is in excellent condition save light exterior wear.
