The new look for every season...
Rosser D., Moog Service Technician, tests the feel of the potentiometers on a Minimoog Voyager Performer Edition. Every Voyager passes through 6 stations of quality assurance during its build process ending with a final check and polishing in the shipping department.
On October 28th, 1969 Bob Moog was granted patent #3,475,623 for the famous Moog Ladder filter—the cornerstone of the Moog sound and subtractive synthesis. It is so named because the tunable 24dB per octave low pass filter was developed using a balanced differential "ladder" topology consisting of 4 precision matched pairs of NPN BJT transistors matched with 4 high quality capacitors in a novel Q-C (transistor Capacitor) filter stage.
Matt D., Moog Production Team, is using the oscilloscope to verify that the wave form he sees on the screen matches the sound he hears, as he dials in the oscillator and filters of the Taurus 3 to meet Moog’s stringent sonic performance criteria.
Let your Moog shine with these high quality foil logo tees.
Eric C., Moog Guitar Product Manager and Engineer, consults a schematic while adding MIDI control to a Butterscotch E-1 Moog Guitar. This new upgrade gives it the capacity to control MIDI devices while retaining its unique ability to control string vibration, providing infinite sustain, muting and more.
A free-running voltage-controlled oscillator is the heartbeat of a Moog synthesizer. This is where it all starts.
Rosser D., Moog service technician, finalizes calibration on a customer’s Little Phatty. Each product is individually hand-calibrated, tested and tuned to ensure that every instrument matches our strict sonic requirements.
The graphic on this tee depicts the Printed Circuit Board for the Taurus 3 Bass Pedals. The Taurus PCB is a 6 Layer piece of 0.062" RoHS, TG-170 FR4, with an LPI TIO Mask and an ENIG over SMOBC finish. Built to IPC-A-600 Class-B Standards using an impedance controlled stack-up of 2116 and 7628 fiberglass with a 1oz copper plane in a SPSSPS stack.
