Slim is the New Phat – Say hello to the Moog SlimPhatty

The Moog SlimPhatty is the long awaited follow-up to the hugely successful Little Phatty. All the sound of the Phatty, but in a petite tabletop or rack-mountable form. And with an RRP of £699 (inc VAT), it’s the most affordable Moog Synth on the market. The SlimPhatty can sit on a table top or mount in a rack.  Rack ears and a handsome wood casing are optionally available. The Slim is built on the architecture of the best-selling Little Phatty synth for great Moog sound and simple intuitive user interface.
