For as little as $25 you could be in with a chance of winning one Memorymoog Plus, courtesy of the Bob Moog Foundation in its annual raffle.
The Memorymoog Plus on offer, with the serial number 2641, was built at Moog Music's Buffalo, NY factory and is valued at in excess of $10,000.
Donated to the Bob Moog Foundation by supporter Lee Keeley, this particular model is described as being in “excellent technical and physical condition” after having been serviced by vintage synth specialist Wes Taggart.
You might want to get in there quick, though, as the raffle will close when all 4,000 tickets are sold. However, should this number not be reached, then tickets will be on sale until 11:59pm (EST) on 6 September 2017.
Tickets are priced at $25 each, five for $100, or 10 for $200, and can be purchased through the Foundation's website.
