I’ve never seen this cute little guy. I assume the Farfisa Rhythm 10 Drum Machine was a result of the partnership with CMI, and very similar to the Maestro Drum Machines of the same era. It’s on ebay right now.
Farfisa Drummer Model 10, this is from the same company that made the organs. This seems to be overall clean shape, all the buttons work. It runs on 6 medium sized batteries and the footswitch is for momentary stop – when you release the button the drums continue. It has an attached guitar cord that goes from unit to amp.
Also an 1/4″ jack in the back with control…. I am not sure if this is additional input for an intrument or not. It has separate buttons for individual drum effects as well as tempo and volume control. It has several pre-set rhythms. This was very modern when it came out in the late 70’s early 80’s.
Take a look at this rare bird up on ebay right now. The Farfisa VIP205R is like a super Matador with all the bells and whistles, why yes, the R does stand for rhythm!
Beautiful 1970s Farfisa Combo Organ. Model VIP 205r with the Funky built in Rhythm Machine!!! Has all the classic Farfisa and Combo organ sounds plus an added Wah Wah feature and a delay function on the Vibrato, it is quite cool.
This Item is super Nice and Super Rare, still I am not a dealer and not responsible for it once it is shipped out from my place. This is a Vintage Farfisa Combo Organ and it is sold As-Is BUT I still say that aside from a scratchy pot or dirty contact or two, this thing is in Full Working Order.
I saw the little thumbnail image for this guy and thought to myself, what could be in that box underneath the organ? Well, as you can see from the second pic, nothing! Here is what must be the super deluxe version of the reed organ known as the Pianorgan, mounted on some very nice looking mahogany, lined with tweed to hide the non-existent (and non-needed) speakers!
