‘The Bob Moog Foundation deeply appreciates Mackie’s generous support,’ says Michelle Moog-Koussa, founder of the Bob Moog Foundation and daughter of Dr Moog. ‘My father dedicated much of his life to developing inventions that enabled the creation of amazing, creative sounds. Mackie’s superb loudspeakers and headphones will enable Moogseum visitors and students who experience Dr Bob’s SoundSchool to hear the sounds of Moog instruments in their full glory.’

‘Bob Moog was an inspiration to us, as he was to so many musicians, sound designers, and inventors,’ says Mackie MD Shaunna Krebs. ‘The Bob Moog Foundation carries on his work by helping educate and inspire today’s and tomorrow’s musicians to create their own legacies. We are proud to contribute to that noble effort.’
