Well, this is a new approach. A truly nice human being, BasementLoadSound has scanned in, and made an HD video of the complete Farfisa Soundmaker Service Manual which includes all of the schematics. Here’s his description:
Very rare and cool 1979 Farfisa Soundmaker service manual (Italian and English). Maybe the only one all over the world 🙂 I did my best to scan the pages but you have to watch the video full screen and possibly in HD resolution. Hope Soundmaker owners will find this document useful.
Check out this great performance by Charles Bradley backed up by The Menahan Street Band at The Leedervile Hotel in Perth, Australia. “Just carve yourselves a corner of the floor to set up boys, the kids will dig it.” Hells yeah they will. I am so stealing that to the sky, drop to the knees move from you Charlie! I’m pretty sure that I spy the Budos Band Farfisa in the background.
Check out Paul’s sexy new Farfisa and his sensitive man music. Don’t worry, he also delves into the darker side with what he calls increasingly irritating sounds, although they sound better and better to me, so I don’t know what to say about that!
Seriously though, this is one hell of a great video if you didn’t get that from the title. There is like math and and science and history and stuff, and super extra awesome bonus points for including the cat!
If you don’t know about the Budos Band, please check them out. I was witness to their sheer funkiness a few years ago when I saw them in Brooklyn open up for Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings. Their set was phenomenal. Check out this video from their performance this summer in Chicago’s Grant Park.
