Its time for another Clip of the Week! 13 year old, Michael Weber, plays The Doors’-“Light My Fire” on his Farfisa Compact Organ. There will be a new clip posted next week on Wednesday.
This week we have:
SCI Prophet VS Rack
Roland CSQ 600
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.
He is the Farfisa F/AR Schematic. The F/AR was an independent preamp and real spring reverb unit that was used to power the Farfisa Compact Duo dual manual combo organ, and the Farfisa Transicord electronic accordion. Both of those instruments will not work without this piece, so it’s pretty nice to have one!
Ok, my new schematic disclaimer: 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!
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!
