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.
This was the simplest of Farfisa Compact Organ. It is by far the most common Farfisa available on the market today. It’s list price in 1968 was a mere $495, something every suburban garage rocker could possibly talk their parents into buying for them. How could they resist this 49 key, C to C keyboard, with a little of that Farfisa bite.
The Mini had just three tabs for sound, but it did have Vibrato, the Multi Tone Knee Booster, and the ALL Booster tab all wrapped up in a fantastically awesome avacado green tolex covered plywood case.
I don’t know much about the Farfisa Professional 88 Organ. It appears to be a massive beast of an organ, and judging by limited sightings, it may have been only for the possibly for the South American Market.
I received a message from one of the gentlemen from The Magnetic Band who said the bass section was great.
