Holy crap! If you have never seen The Mummies, get ready for something else! Doing high kicks and tumble salts on a Farfisa Mini Compact sure adds to it’s durability cred though.
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.
Check out the one and only (no, seriously, there is probably just one of these) Farfisa Cromwell. Or is it the Farfisa Foyer like it says in the last picture? In an incredible engineering feat, someone took a Mini Compact Deluxe and mounted it into a wood console with 2 – 10″ Speakers, and a sweet built in volume pedal. In addition to the Multi-Tone Booster, it looks like someone snuck in an extra tab for a Chorus effect!
