As a young electronic components salesman / Berklee educated musician, I was surprised when I answered the phone at Cramer Electronics in the early 70s and the man on the other end identified himself as Bob Moog. I had heard of his work, but had no idea he was in nearby Buffalo NY. ( I was in Rochester ). We discussed some parts that he needed to build a prototype, and asked if I could get him enough sample chips to complete it. ( the parts were of course very high quality and therefore expensive.) I found a way to get all the parts he needed as a free sample and called him back. He invited me to come and tour the facility sometime. I was amazed and was allowed to play many protoype instruments over the years long before they saw the light of day. He would always ask "well what do you think?", looking for feedback. He always made me feel welcome, He was a great guy, a brilliant engineer, and his gift to music will live forever.
