Schematics and Manuals

Why pay high prices for photocopies or scans of manuals on eBay or elsewhere on the web? Get 'em here for free!  Most of the manuals here are probably of as high a quality as you'll find anywhere, if not better.  The images are mostly 300dpi, suitable for printing

Some of the links below are PDF files, some are Zip files containing JPG files.  For viewing JPGs, I recommend Irfanview, which is available for free at www.irfanview.com.  For a good Zip program, I use Iceows, but any Zip program should do.  For the PDFs, of course, you'll need the free Adobe Acrobat Reader.

Swinging Sound of the Doric A great book, with features pages for the 61TT and the 65PS, songs, and several pictures of a cool combo featuring the Doric 4MB Zip (Again, thanks to whom, I don't recall)

Note: If you have either the Gibson G201 or the Lowrey T2, get both manuals.  While the circuitry is nearly identical, and all the schematics are contained in each, there are several good diagrams that are unique to each manual.  Plus, the schematic styles are different, and you may find one easier to follow than the other. 

Rheem Mark VII Combo Organ (Thanks to Doug Moore)
The circuit titled "N200-4-A" is actually three circuits - the Vibrato (which is duplicated on the Overall Schematic), the low-C bass divider, and the shared bass divider for the lowest octave. 12MB

Farfisa Compact (Adobe Acrobat Reader required) This is for the basic Compact, not the Deluxe or Duo, although about 80% of the circuitry is the same. (Thanks to Matty for scanning these) 3.8MB

Farfisa Compact Extras These are a few extras that aren't included in the PDF - they're not as high a quality, though.  The Power Supply/Preamp/Reverb schematic is somewhat different from the one included in the PDF. 577KB

Farfisa Compact Duo Owners Manual  No schematics, but lots of nice diagrams, including the F/AR and T60 Amp, and instructions for several adjustments.  PDF  1.7MB

Farfisa VIP-345 (Acrobat Reader required)  (Thanks to Frank T.) 1.4MB

Magnus 3D Owners Manual  This one's a hoot to read.  From the glowing terms and colorful descriptions, you'd think this thing was a B3, Rhodes and Vox Continental all rolled into one! (many thanks to Mark for supplying this one) 30MB (a BIG one - get ready for a looong download!)

Vox Continental 300  This excellent set of schematics is provided by Norman Dickinson.  Norman re-drew most of these in CAD, using the original Thomas/EME schematics.  Several of them he "reverse-engineered", re-creating the schematic from the actual circuit.  This is probably the best and most extensive set of Vox schemtics you'll find anywhere.  The only circuits missing from the set are the Vibrato and the voice filters. 730KB
