Moog System 55 Modular Synthesizer

Making it as a musician today is tougher than ever. With so much competition, you really need to stand out if you’re gonna rise above the noise. We’re thinking a $35,000 synthesizer is a good first step.

The Moog System 55 modular synthesizer is a near-exact replica of the monster machine that was used by many an artist in 70s, from Yes to Rush to Stevie Wonder. Moog Music’s engineers took out the original circuit board films to print the new boards, and seeing as these massive analog creatures are all built by hand, and with 36 handcrafted modules housed in a pair of hand-finished solid walnut cabinets, you can understand why only 55 are being made. Of course the sound promises to be an aural delight, even if the five-ocatve duophonic keyboard costs extra. [Purchase]
