Do we have any idea how much these toasters are going to be? As it stands
now, most new analogue gear seems to cost more than the comparable used
beastie. That's of course a generalization, but if these new Moog units
cost MORE than the current rate for vintage gear, that would truly suck.
After all, the price of those things is why manufacturers get back into the
analogue market methinks. So...how much for these pups?
