The Bob Moog-designed 1984 Crumar Spirit. Coolest synth I’ve owned or used by an exponent. Incredibly rare (only 100-200 made), and as lush and intricate as any vintage Moog synth. I unfortunately have to let this unreal synth go soon because finances are way too tight, and I know this mega-rarity it will sell. Amazing condition cosmetically, fully functional aside from needing a tuning/basic calibration, and the Noise function has stopped working (probably a simple fix). Asking 6800 firm. Can deliver.

Here’s a pretty on-point summary pulled from a forum:

For anyone who doesn't know this was the brainchild of Bob Moog, Jim Scott and Tom RHEA after the dissolution of Moog Music and before the founding of Big Briar Music.

The Crumar is unique in a lot of ways, it's routing and modulation options put it in a class it's own, it's core sound is quite unique as well, it offers a lot more complexity than any moog out there outside of the Moog One and while it doesn't sound like a minimoog it certainly will rattle and shake windows probably even more so than a minimoog but with different character, the low end approaches and almost inaudible range which can make it hard to record without going direct, if say recording with an external mic you would get clipping for certain.

The arppegiator is probably the most unique arppegiation there is out there with three different modes, it's even more fun than the arp on a Roland Jupiter 4

It's certainly a sound design machine and takes a while for one to wrap their head around how to really maximize it's potential, there's technically three filters though the third is just a drive option and 3 other options concerning the routing of the two main filters. Really the only thing lacking with this is the fact that it should be able to be made duophonic, there should be a hold option for the arppegiation and midi would be amazing since then you could control clock on the arppegiator. There are several CV connectivity options but not allow the arp to be clocked unfortunately.

Call or text for quickest response; e-mail is fine too. Thanks!
