I love my Moog Little Phatty!

Just got this off of eBay for a great deal (just under a grand, like new, perfect cosmetic condition, original box and manual).  I love it!  The filter is thick and full of character, the waves are bright, and the secret weapon, the "OVERLOAD" knob should essentially be labeled "magic" because it sounds so cool.  This synth is a BEAST.  No wonder so many live shows use it.  Off the top of my head, I know that Starsmith uses one in his studio, and The Knocks use one in their live setup.  I'm fairly sure Ben Folds keeps one around.  This is the modern pinnacle of (affordable) analog monosynth.
