Why stop there, he could have platform boots and a wizard hat, too

Wouldn't the platform boots put him into Bootsy Collins territory, instead of Geoff Downes?

Depends how funky he wants to get. Also, to go full bootsy, one needs funky glasses.

I was thinking more along the lines of this:

Any of you guys who've got a physical/hardware synth or two, what do you use to cover it and protect it from dust? I bought the smallest fitted sheet I could, but it's not really doing the trick. Moog doesn't currently sell a dust cover that fits the Matriarch, but I'd love to have something more solid and that fits better than a $5 bed sheet.

Well, that's easy. Get an old flat sheet from goodwill, sew up corners as it drapes over keyboard, trim excess. That's the really brute force method, but if you think of it as an "open box" without a lid, you cut the shape it would need (you can mark that right onto the fabric) plus 1/2 an inch for seam allowance and however much you want to give it for a hem around the bottom. Super simple.

If only you knew of a woodworker who can build a case with a lid for it... :whistle:

Or you can use my Synthlord Wizard cape when I'm not using it?

We just bought the sewing machine. I don't know how to sew, but that's a pretty good idea. I may have to look into that.

I like the idea, but I would definitely prefer a soft cover. If I wanted to enclose it, that would be pretty simple. Probably nice looking too!! I'll be making a desk for the synth stuff though, so I don't want it to be too heavy. Hahaha.

Needs more MiniMoog.
