This is the first Farfisa instrument I have ever seen in the flesh. Its a small split pea colored organ-style keyboard with a built in stand. It weighs about eight tons and can be carried around relatively easily if you eat your greens for a week or so. Its got organ toggles to control the different settings. The variety in sound is a bit scarce, but I'm pretty sure just about anyone could have at least some kind of fun with this keyboard (musician or not), simply because its so ridiculous looking (and sounding!).

Some of the features include:

Tremelo (with two speed and depth settings) Togglable "brass", "bass", and "string" voices. Multi-tone boost

When the unit is turned on, you can hear what sounds like all keys being pressed at the same time. This highly annoying ruckus continues until the the unit is turned off.

Comments About the Sounds:
Classic "grandma's old heavy thing in the basement" sounds. Good for being sarcastic with cheap organ sounds.
