A 19-year-old Bob Moog founded the company that bears his name in 1953. The venture, started with the help of his father, wasn't an attempt to change music forever, far from it -- the young engineer simply wanted to sell theremin kits to fund his university studies. He went on to release the world's first modular voltage-controlled synthesizer in 1964, simply called the 'Moog' synthesizer.

Despite some interest, the synth was much too large to be practical for most musicians. The Minimoog, introduced in 1970, solved this problem, but it wasn't enough to assuage the company's crippling financial difficulties. Bob sold the company to Norlin Musical Instruments in 1971, before leaving several years later. It persisted, releasing the Taurus in 1975 and the Vocoder in 1978, but filed for bankruptcy in 1987.

Bob reacquired the Moog Music trademark in 2002, and immediately released the Minimoog Voyager (2002). Since his death in 2005, the company has become largely employee-owned, and has released a stream of classic instruments based on Bob's original designs. The Little Phatty (2006) would eventually become the Subsequent 37 (2017), the Mother-32 spawned the larger Grandmother (2018) and Matriarch (2019) semi-modular synths, and the Moog One (2018) has reaffirmed what a flagship polysynth should look and feel like. Bob would undoubtedly be proud.
