About This Listing

                                NOW REDUCED TO £6500(export) <> £6750 (UK)
This is one of the great music biz stories. In the 1990s, due to the fact that the actual Moog brand-name became unlicensed at the time, Moog Music Ltd (Caerphilly, Wales) emerged....quite legally, so it seems. Alex Winter was the gent involved, who unfortunately passed away in 2019. Allegedly, the company produced only 15(?)of the model 204E Minimoog, before its own demise. Also known as the "Welsh Minimoog" or "Minimoog (type) E" it was actually made by Renatus Organ Co (Bideford/N Devon). There were also four technical improvements eg MIDI. Apparently, one is owned by the son of a British rock legend, two are somewhere else in England, one is rumoured to be in Argentina. One is definitely in Germany...and there is this one, temporarily in the custody of Klassic Keys GB. Anybody else know of any?? Would love to know, just being nosey.....
If you examine the photos of the actual synth, it absolutely IS a Minimoog. There are a few EXTRA  controls & switches. (1) Pulse width modulation (PWM) added to oscs 1 & 2 (2) octave transpose (3) MIDI (with channel select) and (4) multiple envelope triggering, are the new additions; and jolly handy they are too! Imagine the easy sequencing etc, using MIDI..... Note voltage select 120/220 Vac.
Sonically, the big, fat bass sounds & screaming lead tones are very much there, as you would expect. There are NO calibration/tuning issues that we can detect. The synth has been double-checked by one of KKGB's freelance techs (who is well familiar with Minimoogs, he actually manufactures new boards for them...). He loved it...said it was "better than a typical model D....." Sound on Sound actually reviewed the 204E. If you find the article, you will note that ALL reviewers thought the same...... Apparently, Bob Moog, himself, played a 204E; he was impressed, which was magnanimous in the circumstances. This also might mean that there is a Model E in the USA?
 So, here we have it. It is what it is <> the rarest Minimoog in the world. KKGB includes a Moog "totecase", mains cord & 12 months full guarantee. 
CHECK OUT THE VIDEO of a  slow-talking Texan dude taking a Model D through its paces. This is what the 204E will sound like, PLUS the 4 extra features. UK price is now finally reduced to £6750.00 (GBP). Synth is being sold via HMRC VAT margin scheme; this simply means that no VAT can be reclaimed.  Delivery (insured) to UK (all of it!) is FREE. Overseas/Export? Price is £6500.00 (GBP) Tell us where you are, and speedy send quote will appear (at cost/insured). Local taxes & duties may be charged prior to international delivery. UK payment by bank transfer only. P/Ex of your surplus synths/keyboard is also possible...we are dealers, so lets deal!!..........but no rubbish, please!
