Moog to Offer Limited Reissue of '60s Synthesizer IIIc System

Moog Music has announced a limited reissue of the Moog Synthesizer IIIc. Originally built in the late '60s, these instruments were among Moog's first complete systems and represent the first wave of synthesizer Moog innovation and product development.

Per Moog’s announcement, each synth will be built in the Moog factory in Asheville, NC “using all–original documentation, art, and circuit board files” from its archives. Moog has capped production of this exciting re–release at 25 units, with each unit featuring 36 hand–stuffed and hand–soldered modules. These modules include 10 901–Series oscillators, the 905 Spring Reverb, and the 984 Matrix Mixer.

Moog Production Engineer Anna Montoya said about the project,

“Through archival designs, so–called obsolete electronics, and outmoded production processes, we are rediscovering the magic of our past. It’s a privilege to build instruments in this way; it lets us reimagine what future tools can be. There is so much potential in this history.”

Moog did not indicate in its release when these 25 systems will be available for order. We do, however, anticipate seeing a sample in action at Moogfest which kicks off in North Carolina the third week in May.
