    Farfisa Compact Duo MK1 restoration

    Hi,

    My Compact-Duo is now ready for a new life : all electrolytics capacitors are new and transistors with broken legs are repaired.

    Well done! That is a nice clean example. I restored one a few years ago which served me well. Hope you enjoy playing it!

      Pougatchoff that is seriously impressive. Bravo! And thanks for the notes on your site – I learned some great tips.

        Nice job! My first gigging organ was a Mini Compact in red. Keeping these units alive is essential for posterity's sake. No amount of software is going to capture the look, feel and sound like the real thing!
