PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Super rare Farfisa Syntorchestra for sale in very good condition – one of the most iconic synths used in Krautrock – most prominently by Klaus Schulze and Cluster/Harmonia – but also by Vangelis, JM Jarre, etc.

Nothing else sounds or behaves quite like it – the layering of the mono and poly sounds is great – add some (ok, lots) of tape delay and you’re in krautrock heaven.

There are two sections: strings (polyphonic), and mono preset synth voices. Pair the strings with a Schulte Compact Phasing phaser and you’ll hit alpha centauri in no time. For a more minimal pastoral vibe, try some slow, hypnotic tinkling with the odd staccato piano through an analog delay. The kraut tricks and treats are endless with this bad boy… We have one in the studio and are not parting with it.

CONDITION: In very good cosmetic condition. There is some wear to the black decals, the case has some minor scuffs and scrapes. No case lid. See photos for more information on cosmetic condition.

230v unit.

Lots of good info can be found here.
