Created by Cyril Lance, Moog's Chief Engineer, as a testiment to Dr Moog, the Little Phatty has been produced for seven years, in incarnations such as The Tribute, Stage I and Stage II. It's one of the most popular analog synths in history, heard on countless records by artists such as Jack White, Queens of the Stone Age and No Doubt.
