Believe it or not, my MiniCompact was donated to the Goodwill I work at in Michigan! I took it home for five bucks after my employee discount. Best of all, it sounds great - no ghost notes, missing knobs...it even came with the metal legs! As a recording artist with a special interest in vintage '60's equipment, the Farfisa has been a priceless addition to my work. Great for live shows too, but make sure to hire a couple of roadies to carry it!

My first keyboard, purchased at age 12. In 1979, I took $110 of hard-earned cash from my lawn-mowing enterprise and dropped it on the one keyboard I could afford--a used Minicompact. That machine rocked. The fold-up-into-a-suitcase design was a great feature back in the pre-Ultimate Support Systems days. In addition to the features described by other reviewers, the Minicompact had Farfisa's unbelievable knee-controller:

A bar dropped down about 6 inches below the underside of the keyboard, and using the right side of your knee, you pressed it to the right to control volume/brightness (the two were inseparably linked on the Farfisa). When you were really rocking, you had your right leg up in the air pressing that volume control as far to the right as your contorted body allowed. Having to keep one leg in the air for hours on end was a bit uncomfortable, but well worth the pain for real-time control of the Farisa's magnificent volume and tone.

This is absolutely wonderful! Whoever wrote the original review must not realize the validity of the Farfisa as a real instrument. Beyond this, it was given a low mark for display wheras I would give it an excellent plus. Come on, white tolex with a black racing stripe that folds into a suitcase! I can't imagine anything else looking as impressive as this. You have got to get your hands on one of these. Or at least some kind of cool little combo organ. But at a price of maybe $200-$350, you absolutely can't beat this unit.

I like the way the farfisa sounds, but God help you if it breaks. It has been my experiance that most people don't touch these things with ten foot poles.
