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!

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?
