Features

 Little-brother to the Compact, the Mini offers a good compromise between features and size/weight. There are three flavors of the Mini: The basic Mini Compact, the Mini Deluxe, and the Mini Deluxe I. The latter two are actually Farfisa designations I've gleaned from literature, but all sport only the name "Mini Compact".   Those that have a model number on their ID plates list it as "Mod. MC/3 = MINICOMPACT" The word "Deluxe" never appears anywhere on the organ, as far as I know.

The Minis circuitry is very similar to the regular Compacts, and they can achieve pretty much the same palette of sounds as their larger brethren

Volume pedal/Knee Lever:  All the Minis feature the famous Multi-Tone Booster and Knee Lever. In the Mini, however, the Knee Lever performs the dual function of Booster level and Volume control, even with the Booster tabs switched on. With the lever in normal position, the volume is very low, prompting many Mini (!?) owners to come up with a way to fasten the lever in its fully-pushed position. Thankfully, an optional volume pedal (identical to the one used for the larger Compacts) remedies the situation. When plugged in, the pedal performs normal volume control functions, freeing the lever to concentrate on its more natural function of adding in the Multi-Tone voices.

Controls:

  • Jack: Headphones (mono)
  • Tabs:
  •     Vibrato: Slow/Fast, Light/Heavy, Off/On
  •     Multi-Tone Booster Tab (yellow): Off/On
  •     Multi-Tone Voices (green): 16', 8', 4'
  •     Voice Tabs (white): Dolce, Principale, Strings

The Mini-Compact has a volume pedal cable with a DIN plug on the end (Volume Pedal and Cable Not Included)
