The Wurlitzer Electric Piano / “Tink” sound when hitting key
« on: November 04, 2019, 06:03:48 PM »
Hello, I did a search to see if I could find an answer to this and couldn’t find anything so forgive me if I missed something. There’s a “tink” sort of rattly sound when I hit one of the keys on my 200a. The felt looks pretty grooved and worn down- i imagine that the felt has worn down to the point where the wood of the hammer tip is hitting the reed- does this sound correct? Should I get another tip and replace it, or is there another way to fix it, such as adding felt?

Thanks,
Nathan

I am thinking about replacing the amp in my 200a, and am wondering about the differences in sound between the warneck and vintage vibe models. They both seem like quality, well made products, from what I gather, and I’m not so interested in starting up an argument about which one is better...it seems that’s been discussed a bunch already in places on this forum. I am curious about the differences in how they sound, though...I’ve listened to what samples I can find, but it really is tough to tell from recordings sometimes, and then there’s always variations in the way they were miked and processed etc. Any thoughts from folks who have experience with these amps?

Thanks,
Nathan

Parts, Service, Maintenance & Repairs / Wurlitzer 200a problem
« on: November 23, 2015, 05:43:21 PM »
Hey I am new to wurly's and the forum, so I apologize if this an obvious fix or was covered in another post somewhere. I was playing and all of sudden the sound got very distorted. I read up That this might be a fuse, which indeed it was. I changed the fuse and it worked for a minute, until as I was playing in the same area on the keyboard I heard a noise like the sound of the reed hitting the pickup, and the sound cut out completely. Any thoughts? Is it possible that the reed shorting out to the pickup could cause some other component to fail? I accidentally blew the line fuse while messing around, so I'll have to replace that before I can tell if by some chance it is working again. The earlier fuse I replaced was the one on the PC board- I replaced it with one of resettable kind.

Any help is much appreciated!
