The Wurlitzer Electric Piano / Re: Wurlitzer speaker impedence

I don't know?  I would assume not. But if someone assumes that it's mono and it's not then FRY!

Mono plug will short the signal on a stereo jack.

I think i'm just going to leave it mono headphones because if I put a stereo headphone jack in and someone plugs in mono headphones, the output will be shorted to ground, which I know some amps can handle and others can't (particularly older ones). Does anyone know if these amps can handle that? I always assume its bad.

I've got to think I need to modify the headphone jack or at least the wiring to it, because when plugged in, it cuts out the speakers and switches to an 8 ohm resistor and also the headphone tip contact. The only place i'd do this is on the 206's that I modify since they don't have speakers inside. On those I can just do away with the headphone jack altogether since they're somewhat useless anyway (at least to me).

I thought I came across this topic years ago, but now I can't find it.

I've heard that Radioshack used to make a 4"x8" 4 ohm speaker and I think I found a pair at a local flea market (whatever they are, they are about 4 ohm each.

I know that the normal 200 series speakers are 16 ohm speakers wired in parallel, equivalent to 8 ohms impedence.

What if I were to wire these two 4-ohm speakers in series to yield the same 8 ohms that the amp sees. Would the speakers be the same volume? Would the amp notice the difference? Distortion? Would there be any difference?

Thanks in advance

Yes they aren't really removable.

200A. I do have some extra reed screws. I'm gonna try to replace one and see if it makes a difference.

The Wurlitzer Electric Piano / Dull notes from torqued reed bar?
« on: March 31, 2014, 09:39:48 PM »
I don't know if this has ever been mentioned before, but does anybody know the purpose of the paper shims under the reed bar? Is it to un-torque the reed bar or to torque it? I replaced a reed on a slightly dull note, #54. The note sounded fine before I brought it up to pitch, but when I brought it to pitch the note sounded like the old reed. Slightly duller than the rest. Has anyone experimented with the reed bar twist? Is it a resonant frequency thing? I'm pondering why these shims are there as I think it may be dampering some vibrations. If that were true, I guess I would get a loud note that tapers off quicker rather than a softer note. I'm trying to get the best sound out of this thing but i'm not sure why they did certain things. I could try it but wanted to ask if anyone had some insight into it.

The Wurlitzer Electric Piano / Re: VV Vari-Vibe wont fit!
« on: March 16, 2014, 04:55:46 PM »
I think I can get a soldering iron and tilt the jack a little bit, hopefully enough to get me where I need to be. Or maybe I should just buy this.

The Wurlitzer Electric Piano / VV Vari-Vibe wont fit!
« on: March 16, 2014, 04:30:04 PM »
Anyone else have this problem?

I'm trying to install the vari-vibe right now on my 200, and it won't fit!

The reedbar RCA input jack is right under my vari-vibe pot!

Any ideas on what I can do?

I assume i'll have to un-solder the RCA jack and put wires in it's place to a new RCA receptacle somewhere.

I think I know what the problem is.

The first screw on the left of the new amp is directly above G# where as in the VV video I think that screw is directly above A#. My amp is positioned to the left a little. Bummer.  The amp that came off this rail was dated Dec. 02, 69.

What should I glue it with? There isn't any rust, just dried up glue.

Anyone else have this dried up glue crap under their 200 amp? It's a little flakey and I don't want it getting into or around my new amp. I want to get it off with steel wool but don't want it to rust after. Anyone have any ideas as to how to keep it from rusting once I get it off?
