At Moogfest 2016, Moog Music today reintroduced the Minimoog Model D.
The company has taken what it learned about 70s synth parts and manufacturing in reissuing the classic Moog Modulars, and is applying it to recreating the iconic Minimoog.
Moog is doing a soft launch of the reissued Model D at Moogfest, and is piloting production at a ‘pop-up’ factory, set up at the event.
Here’s the official intro video:
Here’s what Moog has to say about the reissue:
After more than 30 years, the Minimoog Model D returns with a pilot-production run at Moogfest 2016 in Durham, NC.
Handcrafted in the Moog Pop-Up Factory, the pilot-production units built during the festival will only be available for purchase on-site in the Moog Store by Guitar Center.
The Moog Pop-Up factory is open Thursday through Sunday from 10am-6pm at 312 Blackwell St. Power Plant Gallery – Durham, NC 27701.
The Minimoog Model D is priced at US $3499.
