Moby Selling Nearly 200 of His Personal Drum Machines for Charity

If you want to make electronic music, but you also want to use your hands, an analog synth or drum machine is your best bet to get in the nob-twiddlin' mood. Luckily, Moby is unloading nearly 200 of his favorite drum machines from his personal collection. "This is the equipment I've used to make all my records,” Moby said of the gear. “I have so much equipment and almost all of it has profound sentimental value to me, including synthesizers I started using in the '80s. But rather than keep it all in storage, I want to sell it for a good cause."

The flanger is a simple yet deceptively versatile breed of effect. The way a flanger operates is similar to a phase shifter or chorus – by duplicating and offsetting the signal of the guitar with a short and modulating delay.

Today’s featured guitar is a TB1000A, or Artist, which was listed by the Chicago Music Exchange earlier this year. The Artist model was the higher-end counterpart to the standard TB1000S Bean model and was distinguished by its carved Hawaiian koa top, and block inlays in the style of a Black Beauty Les Paul Custom. The body shape on both models actually evolved some in their original run. The horns were made a bit larger in mid 1977, and the body made a bit thinner the following year.

Think About Experiences to Shape Your Businesses

For years I wanted to learn to play the guitar. Since I have limited experience, it's a bit daunting. Going to the guitar store I found literally hundreds of acoustic and electric guitars for sale, and no real guide to what's right for a middle aged beginner. I wanted a used acoustic guitar, in case I decided I simply didn't have the commitment or chops. Trying to find a good, reasonable quality guitar was really overwhelming. There are guitars on Craig's list, Reverb, at the guitar centers. New and used. Dozens of manufacturers. How's a rookie to know what to do?
