Note to all: These are UK versions of the PRO, and as such will not have the "Moog" name or logo anywhere on the casework. Not an issue for me, but some might prefer to see Bob's moniker on their pride and joy.

I'm delighted with mine - it truly is a thing of beauty, visually as well as audibly and a lasting memorial to a wonderful man.

Kind regards,

I am very happy to know it has no logo at all!

I was going to lacquer the back to cover it, and probably I will substitute it with my webpage's logo. ;)

I am hoping to receive it in 3 days or so... I can't wait...

BTW, I have published today at Theremin Hispano an article about how to refinish it by Peter Pringle, taken directly from his message at levnet and translated with his permission.

In some time I want to make something similar with mine, maybe I will refinish it darker (chocolate brown) or , why not? violet as suggested by him ;)

I just saw a message on LEVNET today that the Turnkey E-Pros have all been sold.

Yes it's true, yesterday the Turnkey webpage did not showed the reference anymore.

My EPro has arrived today too soon...so I was not at home. I hope to have it tomorrow if I am lucky.


BTW, those EPros from Turnkey, do they have Pamelia's DVD included too?

Yes, they did. Mine is (as far as I can tell) exactly the same as the US ones, except that they lack the Moog tags everywhere, including the manual, in which Moog Music is referred to as **** Music.

Why is that, I wonder? Was there some problem with using the trademark name in the UK?

Maybe the word "moog" has other meanings in Europe.... :P

my Pro came today - very happy bunny am I.

Considering case or the bag. Can't decide - perhaps it might fit a flight case for another device like a mixer or rack?

Moog postage is always so much - why is that?
Anyway Wilco at Tele Touch was most helpful and can supply the case or bag.


back to my EPro - bounce bounce ! never thought I;d ever own one.

Maturana, thanks very much for that link to the UK trademark case. It's just so unfortunate this happened. The name "Moog" is synonomous with the man, and it should follow his instruments and only his instruments in my opinion.
