Farfisa Compact Deluxe Schematics

I have no idea why you would want to look at these, but you do, so here they are! The Compact Deluxe Schematics are an incredible display of little black and white drawings on paper that empower you to understand the inner workings of the magnificent Farfisa Compact Deluxe combo organ, if you speak early sixties Italian electronic physicist speak.

Don’t be dumb, and be careful not hurt yourself if you are attempting to work on your organ. You should find a tech to work on your gear, really. That way he can do what he does, and you can do what you do, make music!

    Could you please tell me how or where I could obtain full letter size or larger of Farfisa Compact Deluxe wiring and schematic diagrams? I have a Compact Deluxe that has been out of service for years. Underneath the top cover are myriads of soldered wire connections. One wire connection broke and I soldered it where I thought it originally was. That resulted in a cipher, (a note sounding continuously without any keys pressed.) I am an electronics technician (for over forty years) and I am also a musician. I would like to get this organ repaired and play it again, but I need wiring and schematic diagrams to do it. I would be deeply grateful for any assistance you could render. Thank you.

  • Dave Brown, your site is just beautiful. Absolutely amazing. Do you have any intention of putting up some sound samples of your music? One of the most inspiring rooms I’ve ever seen and your photos are some of the best I’ve ever seen of vintage gear. Thanks for putting it up and thanks for the schematic for the Compact.

  • I just bought Farfisa Leader Mb for 50 euros.Think ,67 or so.
    Pretty bad condition , but I cleaned it and now I am looking for scheme.
    Its pretty like Compact deluxe(the same generators , vibrato ,etc.)
    Thank you for your posting..

  • Well hey I appreciate the diagrams greatly. I got stuck on a strange problem on a compact deluxe and I’m not so sure it’s not down in the switch nightmare below the keys. lol. This will help me determine that soon hopefully. Thanks a bunch for having those up!

  • “I have no idea why you would want to look at these” – some musicians are able to do “first service” on their own, changing elkos, soldering loosen cables. SO THANKS A LOT !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • i need some higher res scans! i am doing a cap job and cannot read some of the values on this schematic. it’s been a blessing to find this website site though. thanks jim.

  • Hey jim,
    Dave’s site is indeed quite remarkable however, there are some differences in design for dave’s compact schematic and your deluxe scans (obviously). I’ve been using dave’s and your scans in tandem and it seems i can get most of the values this way, but i thought i’d check to see if you had your scans in high res as it is the only scan i would need. thanks for keepin an eye out!

  • Hey Casey,

    You probably did this, but if you save or open the image up in a new browser, the images are a little bigger than what gets shown through the website viewer thing-a-ma-bob.

    To do that, click on one of the images so it opens in the viewer, then right click on it and either save it or choose “open image in a new browser” (or something like that depending on what browser you are using).

    Sorry that I don’t have anything bigger.
