Hi, thanks for the reply - I'll keep that in mind.

For now, I found a workaround that removes the potential issue. I just got a switched IEC cable extension. This way I can just switch the power off easily from the cable, rather than the volume pot.

This way I know there is no power going to the unit at all once switched off.

Hi everyone,
I’m new to the forum, and also a new Wurly 200a owner.

I’m expecting to be playing the piano most days, but do I need to unplug it from the mains each night? Or, is it safe to leave it connected to the mains but switched off (via the switch on the volume pot).

Extra info:
The piano is in good cosmetic condition, and also has PAT testing (UK electrical safety) stickers on the mains cable and on the piano itself. The noise floor is low and everything sounds quite nice.

I opened the piano up, and looked at the reeds as one note is low in volume. I tried repositioning that reed (no change) also blew in that area to blow out any dust.

I had a few crackles and pops after that, which stopped after about 30 seconds and haven’t happened since.

My main question is ‘is it safe to leave it plugged in’. Any advice appreciated. Many thanks in advance.
