Behind-the-scenes photos from Engadget‘s trip to Moog Music. Engadget is a consumer electronics blog/online magazine with “obsessive daily coverage of everything new in gadgets and consumer electronics” and following in the hundreds of thousands, if not millions.
Some of its editors are in Asheville for Moogfest.
While we’re waiting for Moogfest to officially kick off this weekend, we stopped by the headquarters of Moog Music in Asheville, North Carolina to catch a glimpse of the analog action. The entire company is housed in one building that includes design, assembly, testing, engineering, service and a warehouse for all of the handmade electronics.
Despite having all of its departmental bases covered, the outfit is still only comprised of about 50 folks total. However, the workshop-esque facility is poised to crank out 10,000 instruments over the course of the year that cover synths, stomp boxes, guitars and more.
We took a stroll around the factory floor (and we were lucky enough to spot the screen-printed, Moogfest-exclusive Theremins), so dive in to the gallery below for a behind-the-scenes look at the construction process.
