How lucky are we? Twice in our lifetime we get to see a Farfisa Super Piano! This awesome seller deals in mod furniture and whatnot, with some very nice stuff, it’s no wonder they stumbled across this awesome Italian console. It’s too bad they don’t look as good as they sound! On ebay right now.
this is a real cool 70’s Farfisa Super Piano made in Italy with a rare custom Danish modern Bent teak cabinet and has the matching bench. The thing plays well comes with the original manuals and the sheet music holder. The case is matched fall lines of flame teak. The case is particle board and thee is minor damage. this link will include more photos of the small nicks to the black lacquer and a chip on the lower bottom side and a ding in the back. the piano plays well all keys work, the left foot pedal seems to be dead as there seems to be no spring in it. It has output for two amps and has 3 speakers in the case all about 10″. I prefer local pick up but I will ship meet your shipper; I suggest using Plycon and estimate the weight at 125 lbs from Long Beach Ca 90814 zip code, and use the dimensions listed. One of the orange sliders does not attach and is resting on its post.
Take a look at this awesome electronic piano from Farfisa. It’s just like, if not better than a Wurlitzer Electronic Piano, or a Fender Rhodes, no, not really!
It is full of 70s cheese, and will smell a little like that when you pick one up. I wonder then is tolex edible? The sound is not one you really want, unless you want to bring back AM Gold, but it is a very cool instrument by design. Instead of having 12 oscillators that have dividers one them to make the lower register notes, the Pro Piano has an oscillator for every not on the keyboard! It’s very cool looking, I’ll have to post a picture of the array of analog circuitry someday.
With one of the envelope settings you can kind of make it sound like a Farfisa Matador or one of the cheaper VIP organs, but not really.
Here’s another mysteriously awesome oddball from Farfisa that no one knows about. The Super Piano looks like a Professional Piano built into a modern styled Teak wood console. The guy sent me these pictures many years ago knew absolutely nothing about it after picking it up at an estate sale.
The Farfisa Pro Piano is a very unique instrument compared to other combo organs and electric pianos. Similar to Farfisa combo organs, the Professional Piano has electronic oscillators, but instead of having only 12 and using electronic dividers to create the multiple octaves on the keyboard, the Farfisa Pianos have an oscillator for every single key on the keyboard! Pretty cool right? To bad they don’t sound as good as a Wurliters or Fender Rhodes electric pianos…
