Hi all,

I'm currently the owner of a wurlitzer 200a. Really happy with the setup (for now) and the onboard speakers work a charm.
Ive got a couple of pedals from when I had my old Rhodes piano (phaser, compressor).

What id like to find is a simple way of getting them in the chain while still using the onboard speakers and not through an amp.

Looking in this forum and google I think that the Warneck amp might be my best bet here. Im no electrics wiz, but can solder and installed a miracle mod on my mark i so happy to give any home-bred solutions a try.

Other than that, is the warneck the best/easiest/cheapest solution. Thanks in advance for any ideas.

Hi Derren,

Here's a link on how to add an effects loop to a Wurlitzer 200 with a stock amp. I am not sure how different the procedure is with a 200a but it should be a good place to start.

I haven't done this mod before so I would wait to see what anyone else here thinks about it. :)

Hi Spave

Thanks ever so much. Really appreciated !

Suspect I'll try and get the mod working before (gulp) drilling a hole in the wurli.
