Moog Music shared this image of the last of its reissued System 55 modular synthesizers on the production line.
Putting finishing touches on the last two System 55s at the #MoogFactory today.
55 total made.
Moog reintroduced the System 55 modular synthesizer, along with the System 35 and System 10, last year. The systems are brand new instruments built to classic 1973 designs, using original parts.
With this run of the classic System 55’s going out of production, Moog has built the ability to produce new versions of their classic modules – including sourcing NOS parts and old-school production techniques – but they will no longer have a big modular in their line up. And, there’s clearly interest in the classic Moog systems.
What do you think they should do next, using the skills and processes developed in reissuing these classic systems? Should they come out with an updated modular system? Create new modules in the classic style? Bring some of their classic designs to Eurorack? Or something else completely?
