Legendary Moog Model 10 modular analog Synthesizer is back in production

The legendary hand-built and soldered Moog Model 10 modular analog Synthesizer is back in production and now available for pre-order. 

The Moog Modular is an epic modular synth made in history. In addition to its great influence on the entire Synthesizer market, the instrument was used in many productions. Among others Tangerine Dream, Yes, Emerson Lake, and Palmer, and Beatles to name a few.

With the Model 15 app for iOS/macOS, Moog has given musicians a wonderful opportunity to discover the world of the Moog Modular for little money. But if you prefer the original haptics and have the money, there is good news.

Moog Model 10 Back In Production

Moog announced today that the legendary Moog Model 10 modular analog Synthesizer is back in production at the Moog factory in Asheville. It’s an authentic recreation of Bob Moog’s first compact modular Synthesizer model from 1971.


The Model 10 consists of 11 discrete analog modules, including:

  • 901 Voltage Controlled Oscillator
  • 901A Oscillator driver
  • 2 x 901B Oscillators
  • 902 Voltage Controlled Amplifier
  • 903A Random Signal Generator
  • 904A Voltage Controlled Low Pass Filter
  • 907 Fixed Filter Bank
  • 2 x 911 Envelope Generators
  • CP11 Console Panel

Moog Model 10 production

Like the original, the limited-edition reissue is hand soldered and built in the Moog factory. Each system includes a host of good, modern updates.

The new reissue offers an updated onboard power supply supporting a broader range of selectable voltages, including 100v, 120v, 220v, and 240v. For users outside the US, this allows you to power your synthesizer without the need for an external step-up/down transformer.

Then, the Model 10 benefits from a new redesigned rear panel that accommodates an updated main power switch, power lamp, power inlet, grounding lug, and voltage selector switch. And Moog promises that it now has improved calibration and tuning reliability, with this current production model holding tighter calibrations with little variance.

Further, Moog released a nice video with music producer Hannes Bieger. Many know his 5U Modular Jam videos from Instagram.

Nice to see that Moog is bringing the Model 10 back onto the market. Unfortunately not in my price range otherwise I would have already pre-ordered.

Moog Model 10 is available now for pre-order for $11.999 USD/13.999,99€.

    • yes, it’s pretty close to the original and sounds great for the price. But honestly, a 5U Modular remains a 5U Modular. Different haptics, big cables, etc 🙂

      • …larger foot print, more expensive… :0) but yeah, I love 5U too. wish i had the space and money for one. but I’ll settle for stuff I can modify without worrying about the resale value.

    • yup, and it’s pretty good stuff. however, there are some gotchas when miniaturizing 50year old circuits. the 9mm rotary log taper pots need to be higher quality to represent the original design intent. the pots they use have a higher end resistance than required to accurately reproduce the fast sub 20ms timing of the 911, 911A, and 961. also, it creates a discontinuity in frequency response in the high-end of the 824 filter. a better linear pot is also helpful in the tuning control for the 921’s and 921B’s. all in all, a fine bargain for what you get, and a simple upgrade for those with more aggressive goals than ‘looks like a moog’. let’s not forget additions from AMSynths and AION to make it even more like the original modulars. great time to be alive – well it was until the parts shortages. oh well.

    • Who really cares about this re-release? People who live the Synthesizer fascination and are interested in the subject. You can be interested in it, but the good point is nobody forces you to buy it. How many people get excited about a Ferrari, Lamborghini, etc. but can never afford one. The same applies to these releases.

      • I built my first synth which was a Paia 4700 series during my junior year of high school in the mid 70’s and bought a Micro Moog not too long after. And I still drool over the latest offerings of the latest synths from all the companies out there. But Moog has already released this before and the price is out of reach for most people, but that’s a discussion for another day. I wasn’t meaning to step on anyone’s toes as I love the Synth Anantomy website and read it daily. I just don’t think that Moog offering up the Model 10 again isn’t any big deal. Sorry.

      • I couldn’t care less. $12,000 dollars for something with a hundred times less functionality than a couple of Elektron boxes. Synthesis for collectors and elites.
