I recently won an auction that had a "model D sythesizer" in the descrption with an array of other electronic gear. I took a gamble since all I could see of it in the photo was just the left front corner, with the wheels visible. No telling the condition it was going to be in, especially since I had to drive quite a bit to get to it after I won. javascript:emoticon('Sad')

Needless to say I won the pallet of A/V equipment. I found inside a nice minimoog in very decent shape. I went thru the machine and gave it a much needed cleaning of all the pots and switchs. It seems to work fine. I do know however I will have to go thru and set it up. No big deal really, not too afraid to get into. It is after all pretty basic inside. The only problem I seem to have with it is that some of the contact springs on the keyboard are kinked and out of shape and if I mess with they will just break. They are all fine right now and I am sure those of you know that the sound on those keys is all but stable. Where can I get more springs without buying another keyboard for parts?
Also included in this pallet of equipment was a Moog 1125 Sample - Hold controller. It seems to work as well. All original cable & connectors in great shape. I have found the schematics for this unit as well, but I have been unable to find a Operation Manual. Electric or hard copy....can anyone help with this as well?

thanks,

Can't help with parts but would suggest also considering a midi kit that would allow external triggering without using the problem keys.
