Oh Moog, you make so many wonderful, noisy and (of course) expensive toys. So you can imagine how excited we were to see the Werkstatt-Ø1, a $329 analog, monophonic synth kit that retained that signature Moog sound. The Werkstatt actually began life as part of a VIP workshop at Moogfest 2014. One of the company's product developers led a two-day event where 125 participants actually built this small analog wonder. The response was so great that Moog actually felt compelled to create a commercial version. The retail kit doesn't involve any soldering however, and we'd hesitate to slap the word "kit" on it as well. Basically, you're just screwing the pre-assembled synthesizer into a case and closing it up. Still, it's more work than your buddy put into that Sub Phatty.
