The Wurlitzer Electric Piano / Re: 145 and 140B vs 200A decision
« Last post by fromthepuggle on June 12, 2020, 04:28:29 PM »
So I'm comparing wurli models to make a purchase, and trying to figure out which is best for me. There's a 140b near me, and it's a good price. Seems a lot of folks on this forum think the 140b is one of the best Wurlis made. I'd be using it for studio purposes, so I'm not concerned with weight. This one has an aux out. I'm not terribly concerned with action either, I grew up playing a very spongy Rhodes, but I'm very much interested in the best possible sound, particularly looking for a nice 'bark'.

How does the 140b compare to others in terms of sound? Why do people say it could be 'the best'? It's not a tube model, if I'm correct. Thoughts?

Bark = early 200
The 200’s have slightly thinner reeds than the 200A’s

HI everyone,
I'm refurbishing a completely toasted power amp and I'm trying to find a replacement for the circuit breaker switch as it's broken. It says it's a 1.95A hold, but I can't find anything. Does anyone have an idea of a substitute, or where to source one? Or should I just substitute a fuse/holder instead? If I do, what type of fuse would be best. I've never needed one of these before. Thanks!

Not to mention the main photo and the CU shots of the Rhodes/Fender Rhodes badges are obviously different. Very suspect.

Awesome idea.  I just sent the link to my wife.  ...Crossing my fingers that she thinks I am worth three internet clicks.

One reader confessed to me that he talked his wife into buying it for him as a Christmas gift by pointing out that with 416 pages and 560 photos, Classic Keys would keep him out of her hair for weeks.

But hopefully you're in a better spousal situation...   8)

2 of the photos appear to have been lifted from Vintage Vibe's site and the others are a completely different vintage.
