The Wurlitzer Electric Piano / First wurli, first post, first problem
« on: August 29, 2014, 07:29:54 AM »
Hi folks!
Aman from Norway here :)
I am brand new to the forum and the electric piano game!

I finally got my self a Wurlitzer 200A about 4 months ago, after a long time of dribling and searching on the web!
Not many of those in Norway, so I had to get it shipped from the states! Totally worth it!

My wurli is in quite good shape, however there is a couple of small issues I would like to get adress.
I did try to search the forum, but couldn't find exactly what I was looking for.
So I am hoping to get someone to point me in the right direction or help me out :)

First problem:
When playing, the action is quite fast and easy. No gooy or sluggish keys. When playing without depressing the sustain pedal, I am able to play the same key quite fast (3-4 times a second ish..) and every strike gives me a good sound.
However, when I depress the sustain pedal, and hit some of the keys at the same pace, every 3 or 4 note the key will not strike the reed properly, and the sound gets muted.. So to illustrate, if I was hitting a key with the sustain pedal pressed in at 3-5 times a second, here is kind of what it would be like:

tone tone tone tone mute tone mute tone tone mute mute tone tone tone mute tone tone.. you get the picture.

Is this a common fault and what is the remedy for this? Is it a fault at all??

Hope to get some help and get my Wurli playing without any issues! I am originally a guitar player, but I think I love the wurli more than any other instrument I have!

Thank you!
