Other Keyboards & Software Synths / Pianet reeds
« on: August 28, 2015, 01:16:43 AM »
Someone can tell me where to find Pianet reeds ?

I saw this one :

The thing is, I own a Cembalet (!) and I don't know the reeds for the different kinds of Pianets and Cembalet are interchangeable.

I do have a few Wurlitzer 200 spare reeds, so maybe I can use this ones ?

Thanks a lot !

Someone's familiar with this kind of modification ?

From the seller's page :
"This is a mod we do on every Wurlitzer,This will give your keys a better piano feel, solves small errors in the mechanics and you will have much better control on the dynamics."

Never seen it before, might worth the try ... :)

Parts, Service, Maintenance & Repairs / Used Wurly amp + 2x pre-amp
« on: April 09, 2014, 06:28:53 AM »
Since I installed the lovely Warneck amp in my 200A, I wanna get rid of my old amp.
Also for sale the original pre-amp and the VintageVibe remake.

All the three of them have always worked properly in my Wurlitzer.

I prefer shipping within Europe as I'm afraid losing money on shipping costs to U.S  ;D

Strangely I've got not a single feedback on European sites (2dehands, kapaza, marktplaats,...)
So let''s give it a try on this forum ;-)

Preamps, Modifications & Upgrades / Warneck 200A replacement amp
« on: March 01, 2014, 05:22:05 AM »
Just found my Retrolinear Wurlitzer 200A amp in the mailbox.
Someone here that installed this board before ?

As I read the instructions, it seems like I don't need the pre-amp (in the center of the pickup-bar) anymore ...
Is that right ?
Like just throw it away and connect the RCA cable instead of the pre-amp ?

English is not my main language, so I wanna be sure :-)

If I won't need that pre-amp anymore, too bad, I installed a brand new VV-remake a few months ago, so I wasted my money on that ;-)

Other Keyboards & Software Synths / Solina (Eminent, ARP) String Ensemble
« on: October 27, 2013, 05:29:23 AM »
Its been a couple of weeks ( before that I realy didn't notice ), since my String Ensemble is making crackling noises.
While playing on it, it isn't that notable , but during intermissions it's horrible.
Seems like it isn't related to the famous MODULATION function, cause with or without modulation it's the same crackling.
It's like a vinyl record playing :-)

I added some audio.

The hiss you're hearing has always been present, and I guess pretty normal for a keyboard that's 40 years old, but the crackling I don't like at all !
I recapped the biggest capacitors ( 8 of them ) but it did'nt solve the issue.
Someone here who can give me any advise ?
I'm an amateur electronics-dude, but don't know what to do with this...

Anyway, listen yourself !

Thanks in advance

Parts, Service, Maintenance & Repairs / Wurlitzer 200A damper part
« on: October 13, 2013, 03:13:32 AM »
Looking for someone who can supply me with a damper-rail "hinge" of a Wurly 200A.
There's one at the left, one at the right of the damper mechanism.
While servicing my Wurlitzer, I lost it ... should be here somewhere, but after a week I didn't find it.

I added a pic for more clarity.

It's a metal L-shaped part with a nylon bushin in it.

Without that part, my whole damper doesn't work.
Vintage Vibe doesn't seem to have it (on their site).
