Asheville, North Carolina is a mecca for artists and musicians of all stripes — but it’s especially dear to the hearts of analog synthesizer enthusiasts. That’s because Asheville is home to the Moog synthesizer factory, where 61 full-time Moog Music employees work to carry on the legacy of the company’s famous founder, Dr. Bob Moog.
Everything Moog does is under this roof — from hand-building instruments, to design and engineering, to sales and marketing, to shipping, to servicing old synths. There’s also the Moog Sound Lab, a multimedia recording studio where touring musicians make a point of stopping by to perform with Moog gear.
Have you ever seen so many Moog synths in one place? Take a look inside the Moog synthesizer factory in our photo gallery — and be sure to look through our notes below!
