A Sweet Day for Moog's Legacy

Tomorrow is a sweet day for Moog and Asheville. On Wednesday, May 1st Bob Moog will be inducted into the United States Patent and Trademark Office National Inventors Hall of Fame. This honor is bestowed on “individuals who conceived, patented, and advanced so many of the great technological achievements that have changed our world.”

For Bob, this achievement was Patent No. 3475623 more commonly known to Moog fans as the Moog Ladder Filter. The Ladder Filter was the first Voltage Controlled Filter and was used in the monstrous Moog modular synthesizers of the 60s, the Legendary Minimoog of the 70's, and is still the same filter topology used in all Moog Synthesizers to this day. The Ladder Filter creates the massive, thick sound for which Moog instruments are renowned.

To celebrate this historic occasion we are reissuing the Moog Ladder Filter Tee, which is now available for pre-order will ship with a free poster commemorating Bob Moog's induction to the National Inventors Hall of Fame.

For those of you lucky enough to be close to Asheville, we are hosting an ice cream social in the Moog Factory Store on May 1st starting at 6pm.  Local ice creamery The Hop created a unique flavor of ice cream that Bob would have loved, chocolate, chocolate brownie (a chocaholic, Bob would bring brownies to the Moog Factory for special occasions like company birthdays, milestones, and holidays). Free beer and kombucha will be on tap from local breweries Pisgah Brewing and Buchi, and to top off the night local synth sensation Ice Cream will play a rare Moog synth heavy performance.

Ice Cream and ice cream, a sweet celebration for a tremendous occasion.

We are honored and excited to celebrate Bob’s Hall of Fame induction, and we want everyone to share in our joy. Come by and celebrate the sweetness with Moog.

I have come to know about the sweet day for Moog and Asheville. On this very event, the people who have contributed much to the music world and society will be awarded. And thus they have reissued the Moog Ladder Filter Tee. Garcinia Cambogia Reviews

Print on demand is a printing technology and business process in which new copies of a book (or other document) are not printed until an order has been received, which means books can be printed one at a time. While build to order has been an established business model in many other industries, "print on demand" developed only after digital printing began, because it was not economical to print single copies using traditional printing technology such as letterpress and offset printing. Many traditional small presses have replaced their traditional printing equipment with POD equipment or contract their printing out to POD service providers. Many academic publishers, including university presses, use POD services to maintain a large backlist; some even use POD for all of their publications. Larger publishers may use POD in special circumstances, such as reprinting older titles that are out of print or for performing test marketing.
