You are bidding on a RARE Farfisa Fast 5 compact organ. (FAST stands for “Farfisa All Silicon Transistorized) Farfisa organs became popular among rock bands and other combo groups and were responsible for some of the really great sounds of the 1960s.
Also included in the bid is a passive pedal, owners manual, schematic diagram, soft case (in need of zipper).
This machine works but has some dead keys, and needs to be serviced.
The body has some scratches, marks and signs of age and use. We wiped it down, but it also needs a good bath.
This is a hard-to-find, very desirable “rock” icon from the 1960’s.
Farfisa Syntaccordion is supplied w/swell pedal & separate tone generator.
Connection to the general amplifer: Is made by means of the general outlet of the generator. Any good amplifer can be connected to Syntaccordion, however the model Farfisa TR-70 is recommended (60 watt RMS, two 12″ speakers, 2 independent channels each one having two iputs with Reverberation and controls for Volume-Bass-Middle-Treble).
Additional amplifcation: Three appropriate outputs of the generator allow the separate amplification of the following sections of Syntaccordion: 1 Flutes/Percussion/Presets. 2-Strings. 3-Piano/Harpsichord/Mono section.
It’s a traditional accordion: 41 keys, 3 sets of Treble reeds. 8 treble registers 120 basses. 4 set of Bass reeds. 3 Bass registers
Asking $5,000 or best offer. Manuals included also have the retail installment contract.
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!
