Is this a Wurlitzer?
« on: May 24, 2020, 11:15:12 AM »
In the intro to Aretha Franklin's 'Bridge Over Troubled Waters', is that a tube Wurlitzer, maybe a 120? Or is it a Pianet or something? My ears aren't that good anymore.

I think she used a 120 much earlier, in 'Soul Serenade', right? But it was mostly buried in the mix.

120, 206 Chop, Baldwin, Gulbransen, Nord & Yamaha digitals, Antigua Strat, Selmer Mk VI, 10M Naked Lady, etc...
