Black Friday Bank Account Buster: Moog Announces Taurus Bass Pedals
Just when you thought Black Friday was supposed to be about cheap shopping, Moog Music has announced some uber-expensive, limited-edition Taurus Bass Pedals.
Moog pretty much does the exact opposite of the status quo, such as debuting products on April Fools Day, so unveiling a revamped version of their vintage Taurus Pedals at stratospheric prices should not floor anyone.
» 100% Analog Sound Engine based entirely on original TAURUS I circuits
» “Taurus I” style (one and half octaves on the floor)
» 2 VCO Oscillators, ADS Contour Generator, 1 VCF Filter, Output VCA
» PRESETS: 16 Banks x 4 presets = 48 Total Programmable Bass Sounds
» BANK 0 will contains the Original Taurus I Presets: VAR, TAURUS, TUBA, BASS
» MIDI: DIN and USB, Merging and Routing
» ARPEGGIATOR: MIDI Sync, TAP TEMPO, Internal
» CV Inputs: VOLUME, FILTER, PITCH, GATE
Moog is only producing 1000 of these pedals. And the first 250 customers will receive a discounted purchase price of $1695 with an initial deposit of $500. Regardless of quantity ordered, this offer ends February 15, 2009. All Taurus pedals ordered after the first 250 will sell for $1995.
Moog states: “Long requested by many of Moog’s very best customers and used by the likes of Rush, The Police, Genesis, Led Zeppelin, Phil Collins, Asia, Weezer, and many more. This is a one time opportunity to own a new set with a new warranty but one absolutely faithful to the original Taurus I sound.”
The new Moog Taurus bass pedals are expecting to ship next Christmas – Q4 2009. More information on the Moog Taurus Bass Pedals.
