The Wurlitzer Electric Piano / Wurlitzer in London???
« on: July 22, 2011, 02:31:52 PM »
  Shot in the dark here, but... I'm going on a quick little UK tour around the London area, and was wondering if anybody has a Wurli for rent. Here is a link to our website so you can check us out...

  Money is tight, but I'm sure we can work something out, and I can throw in a tuning/voicing/regulation to sweeten the deal (and to ensure the thing sounds good on stage ;)) We'd need something for Aug. 2nd through the 6th. I have a gig bag to ensure no cosmetic damage. Thanks for reading!

The Wurlitzer Electric Piano / Wurlitzer 700 For Sale
« on: February 23, 2009, 11:08:48 AM »
Hey Guys

   Here's my 700 for sale. Pm if interested. Best offer, available for pick-up only in southern Connecticut. This 700 is very clean, tube amp was rebuilt within the past 3-4 years. All new damper felts installed. Could use a tuning and some action adjustments, but very playable for a livingroom jam. :D

The Fender Rhodes Electric Piano / SixtyOne Note Suitcase
« on: December 07, 2007, 12:30:00 PM »
Here's a project I started a few years back, before the Suitcase 32 (Supersite gallery). Somehow I finished the 32 first, while this one got the back burner treatment.  It's still note done yet... The top pictured will probably end up being used as a mold (or to create a mold) for a new curved top. It does pack up in the same manner as the 32...The width of the speaker cabinet is the same as the depth of the piano case, to allow the cab to fit perfectly on top of the piano case for transport. The cab features 4 custom 32ohm 10" speakers (Thank you Chris @ Vintage Vibe!) mounted on angled baffles for an exceptionally wide sound from such a narrow cab. The whole thing fits in a MINI Cooper with plenty of legroom for "shotgun", as well as a Hammond X2 and rotating horn. :D

Parts, Service, Maintenance & Repairs / '60's Silver Sparkle Tines
« on: December 20, 2006, 09:07:53 AM »
Hey fellas! I'm restoring a '60's Silvertop Rhodes, and need some tines! I originally bought the piano as a parts hog for another Silvertop, as the tines are peticular to these models. Then, it seemed such a shame to part out  an old piece of Rhodes history, so on the bench it went. You'd all laugh if you see the "before" pic, but I'm not sure how to post pictures in this forum. Any info on that would be appreciated too! (keep in mind I'm next to computer illiterate!) If anyone's interested, I can post pix of the project if I can figure out how to do so. Anywho, all is salvageable (or replaceable) with the exeption of some bad tines in the bass register. There's a lot of pitch and tone wavering going on. If anyone can part with some of these tines, please contact me. Thank You!

The Fender Rhodes Electric Piano / Suitcase ThirtyTwo / Pre Piano
« on: October 21, 2005, 02:40:16 PM »
Hey everybody! I just got two of my little guys in the Supersite Gallery! Check 'em out, and let me know what you think!!! :D

Hi Freddan! Maybe YOU can help...I've also got a fiesta red piano bass. As mentioned in a previous post, I removed keys starting from the left and found these numbers. 14  19211. What on god's green earth does THAT mean???  The serial number is 12-1250, and a brass tag on the top surface of the rear case panel reads 01250. My questions would be A) what year? B) did this thing originally have weights on the keys (I had to remove one to read the code on the key) and C) How do you accurately replace these 1st generation tines? The Rhodes manual specifies "a length of piano wire .075" diameter". The piano shops I've gone to here in the states say that diameter does not exist! Also, And I don't seem to be alone on this one, original style knobs seem impossible to locate too. Please help!
   I also own a Pre Piano. Have you ever seen one on a wooden tripod? It definitely looks cooler than the chrome school desk. Any insight on these pianos is greatly appreciated!!!
