For music lovers and musicans all over the world, Moog Music is celebrating a 10-year anniversary with the release of the limited edition Minimoog Voyager. Moog created this 24 Karat gold Voyager synthesizer with the finest materials. The company is handcrafting 31 of these analog works of art, but only 30 are available for purchase worldwide.
The 10th Anniversary Minimoog Voyager made its unofficial debut at Moogfest, Moog's 2 day festival in Asheville, NC where the international electro-pop group, Miike Snow, played it during their headlining set.
The 10th Anniversary Minimoog Voyager has been carefully dipped in a 24-karat gold finish. The classic wood housing has been neatly dressed in a custom, high gloss, black piano lacquer chosen specifically to accentuate the Japanese Awabi pearl adornment on the sidepieces. Moog has created a short video documenting the build process of this precious synthesizer, which can be seen on their website. Additional features of the 10th Anniversary Minimoog Voyager include custom translucent knobs, a glowing Moog logo with indigo illumination, gold headphone jack, all black switches, a personalized engraved gold plate, a letter pressed certificate of authenticity, and a hand bound user’s manual. Only 5 units are available for sale in the United States, with the remaining 25 units spread out across countries around the world.
“We are so thankful to the thousands of Minimoog Voyager customers for making the Minimoog the best-selling analog synth of the last decade. Without them, we may not have been able to continue hand building instruments in downtown Asheville, North Carolina,” said Mike Adams, CEO Moog Music.
Moog is asking all Minimoog Voyager owners to update their registration information at www.moogmusic.com/register so that they may successfully receive a small gift in the mail. On November 16th, Moog will announce details on how to enter the 10th Anniversary Minimoog Voyager Giveaway.
As part of the celebration of the 10th Anniversary of the Minimoog Voyager, Moog has also created an interactive timeline where fans can learn about the 10-year history of this instrument and the artists who used it to define the sound of the last decade.
