The Wurlitzer Electric Piano / Re: 200-A Low & distorted output

Just following up to my own post.

I played it safe and replaced the fuses with great success. Found some replacements online that cost next to nothing.

My wurly is singing once again!

Wanted to revive this thread for some clarification about the two fuses on the main PCB.

In the service manual it states you can replace the two fuses with some jumper wire as the "the fuse has been eliminated on later models".

I've got a blown fuse on an early 200a model (1974) & I am wondering if I am better off replacing the fuse or just using a jumper line. It sounds like the Original Poster of this thread had success just using jumpers, but I am a little paranoid and don't want to fry my piano.

I've provided a few screen shots of the manual to show what I am talking about.

Hope to gain to some knowledge from anyone's experience here.

Thanks

The Wurlitzer Electric Piano / Re: Bottom Capstan Screw

Okay great makes perfect sense to me, thanks!

I think I may have one or two keys towards the bottom end that are too tight and not falling back into position.

The Wurlitzer Electric Piano / Bottom Capstan Screw

Hello my fellow electric keys enthusiasts,

I am trying to understand the proper setting for the bottom capstan screws on the 200a. Based on the manual it seems like the the bottom capstan screw should be set so each key has 1/32" of wiggle at the tip of the key when resting (Lost Motion Traveling Depth).

Am I understanding this correctly?

Does anyone have a good technique for setting this? E.g. measuring each key's traveling depth with a ruler vs. adjusting to the right feel.

Thanks,
Seanny

Hey Sean,

Thanks for the insight, I ordered some1/4" textured graphic tape on amazon.

I'll check back in once it arrives and I apply it to my wurli for anyone who may view this in the future.

Excellent, this looks like it should do the trick.

Thank you!

Hi everyone,

I have been working on restoring a road-worn 200A for a few months now and it has been a blast. I have the keyboard looking pretty good except for a few holes and gaps in black vinyl strip that goes around the perimeter on the metal portion of the lid (see photo attached that I pulled from the web). 

Does anyone know where I can buy replacement material for this? I have not seen it on Vintage Vibe or other vintage EP resources.

Thanks in advance,
-Sean
