I've never been a synth player, but I've always loved the sound of Moogs, and man, this is that sound. this just has loads and loads of *that sound*. as far as features go, it lacks a sequencer that most others seem to have. in fact, I'd originally considered the Mother because of that. but ultimately I decided wanted to play it, not program it and twist knobs. and for me this role is filled perfectly well with just a looper pedal, which can do overdubs too. so while it lacks a sequencer, I don't feel like I miss it. as for the lack of an arppegiator, it does have a setting on the source dial that is a randomized wave form which you can adjust the rate of, and can be dialed in to serve that function rather nicely. the build quality is excellent. metal and durable plastics, with easy to hold rubberized side surfaces. the keys are nicely weighted and responsive. ease of use is kind of a tricky question, because one of the reasons you get something like this is that you want something that's complicated to use. part of the fun is figuring out this byzantine mess of knobs. but for something that's supposed to be difficult to use, it's pretty easy to use. the presets are useful and varied, the manual explains a lot (yet still leaves much mystery), and it's a blast experimenting with it's various settings and functions. as for value, it's pretty good. there's a lot of other analog synths I looked at in the four-to-eight hundred price range that I looked at, and they all have different qualities and things the others don't, approach the matter in different ways. but this one really just fit all the things I was looking for, and I'm glad I chose this over all the others, and a very good value for the money. as for wow factor... it's a Moog. easily the most iconic brand of the industry. what more do you need? that's better than any arrangement of flashing lights to inspire wows!

"First Moog... Very affordable and extremely phat"

The name really suits it. This thing screams in the low end, literally sometimes when you crank up the resonance and overdrive. Sounds amazing with reverb and delay on it, or even more overdrive externally. This is my go-to for almost all bass sounds, noise, and various other effects that need that warmth and tonally identifiable sound.

I use the "Sub Phatty" as an extension of my bass playing. Spent many years searching and much $ on pedals trying to get these sounds but not even coming close. This instrument feels and sounds completely organic. Not over processed and whimpy. I hip other musicians to the "Phatty" on the regular.
