Moog Taurus Pedal Synthesizer   serial No. 1519   These pedals are in pretty good shape, but the plastic controller panel cover is missing. Unfortunately, I was not able to play pedals and piano at the same time, so these pedals got almost no use. However they have  been sitting around for a very long time, so I'm selling them "as is". They are, however,  Moog and Vintage so, good luck.  Update (6/29/2019) Someone showed interest, but wanted it "to work", so I hooked it up. I'm happy to report that all the shaping functions work! About half of the pedals worked with a little encouragement. So, obviously, some contact spray will probably get them all going. 

The Taurus has three Preset sounds and one User programmable. The three preset sounds are Bass, Tuba and Taurus. Most users prefer the Variable preset which lets them synthesize their own sounds using the simple VCO, VCF and VCA controls. The shaping controls are hidden behind a plastic window to prevent accidental foot tweaking.

The Taurus is monophonic, with sound generation coming from a simple two-oscillator design that can be tuned across a 5-octave range. An Octave button lets you shift the pedal keyboard up or down an octave, the direction must be set using the Octave switch in the Variables section. There's also a Glide (portamento) effect and a Decay effect. The amount of Glide and Decay are also set in the Variables section. Like any Moog, there is a 24 dB/oct lowpass filter with controls for Emphasis, Contour Amount/Attack/Decay and Cut-Off. Two gigantic foot-sliders flank the sides of the Taurus and they are used to adjust the Filter cut-off and VCA Loudness on the fly using your feet. It has been used by Rush, Yes, Genesis, U2 and the Police.
