Restoring MOOG MINIMOOG

Post by roginator » Sun Jun 10, 2007 10:33 pm

ok I decided a year after bought MINIMOOG to make it perfect!!!!

it was in very bad shape (sorry I can't find a picture..I will post it later)
Living a life in smoking studio ( at past owner) complet mini was allmost green :cry: :cry:

so I get it for about 900 Euros last year and decided to invest another 100 to make it GREAT ..

lot of scratch and bad brown paint needed some wood work
also keyboard needed new bushing and some pots were broken

so what I did last week is on next pictures!!!!!

Looks nice. You gonna sand back the varnish and give it a couple more coats?

:shock: I'm drooling over the Synclavier more. Is that a ribbon controller on it?

Very, very nice. That's a bargain for a Mini, even if it was a funny colour :)

Very nice.

I was looking at that heater regulator (bottom pic) and going "what king of microphone is that?"

I'm from the South. :?
