Farfisa M200 Vintage Digital Synthesizer

Check out this never before seen digital synth/sampler, the Farfisa M 200. I just found this on ebay, ending today, and currently rather affordable. Bid this rare piece of history up, or keep it all to yourself and get it for a steal. According to the seller, 3399rob, it even has some functionality!

Here’s the description from the auction:

Up for auction is a rare Farfisa M200 digital synthesizer. I really don’t know much about this at all. It belonged to my late father-in-law who was an accordion lover and prolific performer. I believe this was intended to be paired with a Farfisa accordion, but I don’t know for sure. I have not been able to find any information about this model on the internet. It appears to work. I connected it via midi cables to a keyboard and it did function, but I don’t have a manual or anything, so I don’t know how to test all the functions. It does include a custom bag. I do know it has not been used for quite some time, as he moved on to more modern synthesizers and arrangers for his performances. If you are interested in vintage sounds and cool equipment this might be the thing for you! Please feel free to contact me with questions and thank you for looking. Also, please feel free to contact me if you have any information about this synth that might help me find a good home for it!

The Silent Farfisa

Hey, check out this cool video from the mid sixties of an unknown group playing a house party. This is a silent film, taken on 8mm film, but it is very cool to see the boys groovin’ and the girls dancing. I wish there was a better shot of the organ, but I am terribly happy to have found this piece of history!

A Blast from long long ago. My first band from the mid 60’s features Russ DeFilippis and John Zias on guitars,(Rickenbackers) Rich De Simone on bass.

Silent was taken from old 8mm film.

Also seen dancing my cousins Joyce Castle and Lois Schneider-Novak

Farfisa Syntorchestra Video Demo

Check out this great video of the Farfisa Syntorchestra analog synthesizer from youtuber zihcster. Be sure to check out his channel for some more great videos. Now I have an un-working Syntorchestra, which is housed in a sheet metal type case. Take a look at this beauty in it’s nice wood cabinet. It must be some sort of deluxe version meant to sit on top of your console organ!
