Moog Music has today announced that the MoogerFooger MF-104M analog delay pedal is back in a small batch. This is possible because the Moog engineers have found a cache of vintage BBD chips that allow them to build new units.
The MF-104M will be not available online but exclusively at the Moog Factory in Asheville, NC.
Based on Bob Moog’s Moogerfooger MF-104 Analog Delay design, the MF-104M uses the same vintage analog Bucket Brigade Delay (BBD) chips as the original, which provide 800ms of the richest analog delay on the planet. The limited nature of these new-old-stock BBD chips has caused the Moogerfooger Analog Delay to oscillate in and out of production as new sources for the hard-to-find components were established and subsequently exhausted, with no new units produced since the last supply was depleted in 2015.
This year, a recently discovered cache of vintage BBD chips has allowed us to build the MF-104M again, with just enough of the rare component to complete a short run of new delays.
The new Moogerfooger MF-104M Analog Delay is available now for purchase on-site at the Moog Store in Asheville, NC.
