Farfisa Bass Pedals

Most portable Farfisa organs had a 16 pin connector for bass pedals. The standard bass pedals are a standard octave plus one note, from C to C.  With the exception of the Mini Compact, most of the Compact Series, VIP Series, and Pro Series organs can take these pedals.  Now the pedals are not super cool synthesizers like the Moog Taurus pedals, but instead just a controller for the circuitry onboard the organ.  The 16 pins are for each of the 13 note, and 3 for the juice (positive, negative, and ground I imagine).

Combo Compact Brochure, The Swinging Rhythm and Driving Beat

The Combo Compact

Its sleek, modern handsome design and attractive colors suit the COMBO COMPACT to the smartest surroundings. Constructed of hi-impact polystyrene and covered with heavy vinyl, this unique electronic instrument is practically impervious to mars, cracks, or scratches.  Set up for use, the COMBO COMPACT is 38″ long, 18″ wide and 51″ high.

The entire unit folds easily into a single carrying case that weighs just 70 pounds.  The legs fold into the bottom of the keyboard console. Storage space for the swell pedal and the 13-note pedalboard (optional extra) is contained in the lid.

The swinging rhythm and driving beat of today’s music make the new electronic COMBO COMPACT a “natural” for young groups who play this modern sound. Its unique Multi-Tone Booster gives tremendous attack and “edge” by boosting the upper frequencies, highly desirable in arrangements popular with many young groups. The COMBO COMPACT is the modern sound for which they are looking!

However, the fully polyphonic COMBO COMPACT is a versatile keyboard instrument suited to a wide range of professional expression. Its 12-note Manual Bass enables the player to obtain authentic organ pedal sounds without using the footpedals. Full organ pedal sounds are produced with the 13-note pedalboard, an optional extra. The COMBO COMPACT is easy-to-play. Used with an amplifier, it puts to work all the features – like tremolo and reverb – found on the amplifier.

Still keeping with today’s tempo, is the compact portability of the COMBO COMPACT. It folds to form its own self-… (The last line is cut off in this scan. If you know what it is, or want to take a guess in the comments below, that’d be great!)

Hi-Tone Booster

This feature produces tremendous edge and unusual hi-frequency “wows” by boosting the upper frequencies.  It’s a perfect for today’s younger groups.
Actuated by a knee-lever located beneath the right side of the keyboard console, the HI-TONE BOOSTER immediately cuts out the actual organ voices and basic 16′, 8′, and 4′ voices can be used individually or in unison.

Earphone Feature For Silent Practice

Practice sessions without disturbing others are a simple matter. The player simply plugs earphones into the convenient built-in jack socket on the left end panel of the keyboard.
