Wurlitzer 120 Line Out
« on: August 09, 2020, 12:16:32 PM »
Has anyone ever installed one on this model? Recommend for best sound/least obtrusive mod? I was thinking there might be a way to pad down the existing headphone jack, no?

Least obtrusive... Headphone jack to ART ZDirect DI box to Danelectro Tuna Melt Tremolo to amp or board. About 70 bucks total, no soldering haha

Haha I always like it when there's no soldering involved!

I mic'ed the speaker up to record a couple tracks yesterday, and it works perfectly well. This thing will is going to live in the studio, so line out isn't too important right now I guess.

V V sells, or at least used to sell a little box with an input and an output that connects to the headphone jack of the early Wurli models. I bought one years ago and it works great, it was inexpensive (at that time) also. I'm not sure if they still sell it.
