The Wurlitzer Electric Piano / Wurlitzer - Please Comment
« on: May 29, 2005, 05:04:30 PM »
Hey Guys,

My friend is buying a Wurlitzer from a person in Niagara Falls.  I think he said the price about $500 USD.  I did a search for Wurly's and not much came up - so my question is, how much of the Rhodes buying tips apply to a Wurly?

I'd like to make a list of questions for the owner, what should I include...

Type/Model?
Year Manufactured?
Last Tuned?
Last Serviced?

What about reeds, tines, PSU, keys, and all the "guts"?

What internal components should I be concerned about?  In other words, the overall sound is dependent on dozens of components, but are there a few that should be in very good condition because they're bigger factors?

As in, don't worry about PART X, it can be serviced for $50, but make sure PART Y is working because it's tough to get a replacement.  That's just an example to get the point across.

Of course we're going to sit down and play the thing and make sure it feels and sounds good.  But without looking inside, we're not getting the whole picture right?

MANY thanks for any replies.  I'd really appreciate some feedback.

Thanks,
Tom.
