Take a look at this sweet orange goodness! The Farfisa Repeat/Volume pedal replicates the percussion feature that was on some of the VIP model organs. While not as big and meaty as a Hammond’s percussion, the repeat feature could be used to add a little clunk to your junk, or add a little hard tremolo action.
Is this not the awesomest music store in Australia? The Music Swop Shop just outside of Melbourne has not one, but two Farfisas in stock! A Farfisa Bravo console organ, and a Farfisa Super Bravo combo organ.
The Farfisa Bravo was a top of the line console organ that featured a Rotating Speaker, Partner 15 Drum Machine, Easychord Section, Reverb, Vibrato, and a Cassette Recorder.
The Farfisa Super Bravo takes most of that and wraps it all up in a portable package!
Check out this rare bird on ebay. The Farfisa Stereo Syntorchestra was their attempt at entering into the synthesizer market. This synth is much like the Moog Satellite stand alone synth, and those that were built into the old Thomas and Wurlitzer console organs.
Not for the deep bass loving folks, but this synth will land you somewhere in the Dick Hyman/Stereolab kind of place.
Wildrover434 — May 31, 2010 — Just A Closer Walk With Thee, played on my Farfisa Super Syntaccordion hooked up to my Farfisa TR70-OS amplifier with sferra sound which was supplied new with this accordion and my old Roland Compurhythm CR-8000 rhythm box all dating from the early 1980’s.
