Moog Model D and Taurus 3

Awaiting my Taurus 3 bass pedals that I pla. To use for all the bass in a new project...ended up playing a moog model D today and fell in love.

Wondering how they compare sonically for bass duties? Anyone use both of these simultaneously? Thinking of using the Taurus for long held out deep bass tones, and the model D for more syncopated/riffs that have a low mid growl. Not sure if they would clash if used together or if it’s redundant to own both.

There is some overlap but one doesn't make the other redundant.

^^ What Moonwhistle said. Having Taurus/Mini won't clash. If you wanna hear both in action, Rick Wakeman used them on the Yessongs tour/album (try Six Wives of Henry VIII). It'll just mean the synths will sound Moogy.

The Minimoog is a great bass synth: classic Kraftwerk, Gary Numan, Giorgio Moroder and post-disco used Mini for bass.

Can the mini do everything the Taurus can do for bass, just without foot pedals? Or does the Taurus have the better low end if I only had one for bass? Love the Taurus but after playing a minimoog, I see a lot of applications it can do that the Taurus can't...just wondering if the Taurus can do things the Minimoog can't in the low end. Thanks

That's difficult to answer. I wouldn't say better low end but different. Both are bass monsters. The Minimoog is much more versatile, but if you can have both it's worth keeping the Taurus. You might decide that you prefer the mini for bass once you have them both. A matter of taste.
