The Wurlitzer Electric Piano / Re: Wurly 112 Opinons.
« on: July 15, 2019, 03:16:05 PM »
Doc reached out to check in with me, which I really appreciated. Here is what I told him.

I've done everything I think is needed from research, minus replacing the missing reeds and and tuning. Big step yet. I've went through the amp, installed a new power cable, fully disassembled and cleaned the piano and reassembled. Did some minor key leveling and easing and repaired a few broken hammers. It's playing and sounding and feeling really neat.  Prob needs a re felt for the dampers not long after reed replacement. I am however at a standstill right now as I just closed on a new home and am renovating and moving, SO it's gonna be a minute. hahaha.

I was very fortunate to receive the piano for no cost, under the "I wonder what Ross would do with this" clause. It was legit saved at the last minute, at the land fill. Pretty cool story.

I did get the pedal! I had to glue it back together, but it works.

And ya VV has reeds, just not real budget friendly.

Or I'm cheap. Prob the latter...

Hey Board,

Hope this is a kosher way to seek advice, as every forum has their own 'rights and wrongs' about posting, esp. with new threads. I have just taken on my first Wurly project and it is from my understanding one of the harder ones, the 112. Mine is IMO good to very good condition cosmetically, with the action feeling fairly appropriate and the amp just receiving a freshen up. Nice and quiet.

I am however missing 13 reeds. A well regarded professional in your industry suggested to me that this is a donor board due to this and should save myself the headache. I am a professional guitar and amp technician with 10+ years of retail repair experience and do not shy away from a challenge easily and this just seems to be too beautiful of a piece of history to part out, not to mention with what people ask for a fully done up one, it'd prob be unrealistic (financially) for me to pop off for another in the future.

Sell me either way EP Forum, I am all ears.
