The Wurlitzer Electric Piano / 120 model, not far off
« on: April 01, 2021, 01:04:06 AM »
Hi all,

Finally, after getting rid of a 112 model 16 years ago (stupidly), I have purchased another Wurly.  A 120 model!  I am absorbing all the old posts here best i can.  Few questions:

1.  Death cap, which one is it?  And do you just snip it out, or do you have to bridge a connection from where its cut?  This amp is fairly quiet and i fear changing the tone by recapping it.  Maybe just the power supply caps are worth replacing? 

2.  Damper rail - can i just take it all off at once?  If so, how?  I need to get to the reeds to clean any corrosion on a couple notes that don't naturally sustain long enough.  I feel like in my old 112 it was easier to access.

3.  Seems like when i blast the volume past 90%, the speaker lightly overloads and not in the good way only while played.  However, i feel the new speaker replacement could help.

As far as the action, its pretty darn enjoyable as is.  It was lightly used by a lady in a country western band in the 60s/70s!
