Appears to be a side mounted sustain pedal as well
Outrageous price, but more-so neat to see
I thought those legs weren't standard on other ones i've seen, but I guess they were

Definitely.  Make sure the leads on the underside of the preamp are short and not touching anything. Make sure no wires are shorting out with the preamp installed. The hum shield could be pushing wires when installed too. Make sure your preamp brackets are not backwards or reversed.

It's the reedbar then.  I had a similar sound when installing reedbar shields. They were too close to the reedbar around key 20-21.  This is where the reeds change in form and the pickup also gets thinner too. I had a small step here and it was flexing my reedbar shields causing an arcing short somewhere.  I removed them and reinstalled them without as much flex and the problem went away. Mine sounded like someone dialing in a radio before I fixed it. If you do this, make sure the reedbar pickup doesn't shift causing a short when you turn it back on. Do this with it off too. If that doesn't work then you have a free drummer/metronome.

Anyone done it? Anyone have the schematics? I am wondering if the vibrato circuitry is present and am lost...

Thanks in advance

Open the lid and make sure the speakers wires are not broken or totally disconnected. The speakers should be in parallel too.

Check fuses on the amp board with the piano off too.

After some research last year, I found that the original wire was size #22, stranded. Radioshack sells a nice little 3 spool package too.

or radioshack item #278-1224

I agree with steveo on the samples being too perfect.  Too uniform. Every notes sustains a little bit different than the next. That's the origin and uniqueness of the sound.

I heard that vintagevibe was going to create a new reed based piano in addition to the one they already have.  I haven't seen the new vintagevibe tine piano, but it looks like a Wurlitzer action inside of a Rhodes?  Not sure though. It seems there are enough wurlitzers out there going bad to supply the demand for now.  I have bought 12 in the last 5 years all within an hour of my house! They are there but you have to watch craigslist like a hawk.

I had a similar issue/sound.  It was on a 200 I put reedbar shields on. They were a little too close to the reed pickup rail and made a similar , constant but a little bit random staticky sound. Touching the damper adjustment screws would change the effect a little bit. Remove the reedbar pickup like Tim said.

The warneck amp is a great amp btw. Real crisp and trebly. Good luck on the sale. Make sure you put it on your tax return. A dollar over 10k is an automatic audit. Did you ship those other 2 out of the country or something?

I haven't. That price is a little insane. The only difference is the color of the lid. All else is identical. That's one expensive lid. I'd just paint my own red for $50 and call it a day. Who's gonna know?

Hello all,

I came across a 200 amp with the .01 mfd cap parallel with the neon bulb that is not on the 200 schematic. This cap is on the 200A schematic though, AND the video I saw of the installation of the vintage vibe Classic 200 amp. Is this necessary?

Oddly enough I am in Harrisburg this whole weekend for a bachelor party.  Is this too good to pass up?

Between friends is tough. I'd tell him you only have "x" amount of dollars to put towards it. If he bites, ok. If he doesnt, ok. If it were my friend I'd say 600-800. You'll find one some other day. They pop up all the time.

I'm ordering one of these (WR 200 Amp) today for someone.  I have a 200 with the VV 200 amp and i'll try to make a video of the VV 200 replacement amp vs. the Warneck Research replacement amp. I haven't seen any videos of the VV regular 200 replacement amp. I can vouch that they are awesome and dead quiet, but I haven't heard the Retrolinear one yet. I can only find videos of the VV 200A tube-preamp-model amp.

Came across this video today, and decided to try and start a thread that has songs with wurlitzer in it these days since I love to hear it being used. Enjoy!

File a claim pronto. I just got a new couch delivered last week from macys furniture. We were moving the ottoman around and there was a stripped Philips screw head sticking out a little too far. It moved about 8" before she stopped the sliding on the hardwood. I told macys about it not knowing if they cared and they said Oh yeah we'll send you $100 in the mail !

I am going up that way next weekend for golf and may just have to pick it up if it's still there. I doubt it will be.  Never had a Rhodes. Always wanted one. I just keep stumbling upon wurlitzers. Also there is a Rhodes mark v for sale in Erie, PA. Not that far from Cleveland. Craigslist too.

Do you mean that the fly has not completely checked off and returned due to the key being slow? Just curious, why do you think it is not a problem when the sustain pedal is not pressed? I am learning too.

I believe this is inherent in the design.  The hammer simply hits the reed on its upswing and sometimes dampens the note. The damper eliminates the possibility of hitting the reed on the upswing. It could also be the sustain pedal rod is out of adjustment, not lifting the dampers high enough, but I doubt it. It could also also be the let off adjustment being too high, or the key dip being to much, which can block the reed sometimes, but that doesn't sound like the issue.

You can try a piece of 1/2"-13 all-thread (or whatever the nut thread size is), cut it to length, drill and tap a 1/4"-20 hole in it for now. That should work if you have the means.

The threads on a normal wurly sustain pedal are 1/4"-20 i think?  The threads on the nut look like they're 1/2" size, maybe 1/2"-13?  Do you know if that is the thread size of the nut? The pitch looks finer than 1/2"-13 but I can't tell directly from the picture. I wish I still was at my old job (not really though), I could have CNC'd this out of brass hex in about 10 minutes.

Interesting little sustain pedal connection.

Almost like a compression fitting nut (in the sense of the hex nut) in conjunction with a brass male-female standoff.

I assume the nut is attached to the pedal rod? and the piece you are missing (steveo) is the standoff I described?
Look on mcmaster-carr for brass male-female standoffs. They look like this.
