This footage is from the Projek Moog live performance at Moogfest 2010. It features Billy Cardine on the Moog Lap Steel.
“The Moog Lap Steel is, no doubt, based on a very amazing technological innovation,” says Cardine. “Despite this, and as I know was the intention of the engineers, I believe this technology in this format has risen above being just a technical innovation. It truly expands the vocabulary possible from a steel guitar, both as a supportive instrument and as a lead voice.”
The Moog Lap Steel Guitar retails for $2,895.
