Wurlitzer Pianos

 

The damper mechanism will work perfectly. Every note will "sound" for 2 seconds minimum ~ all the reeds will  be checked for performance and finally the piano will be stretch-tuned to A-440Hz. The amplifier will be re-built do note that many components on the board will be "tired" ; not designed to last for 35-odd year our re-populated amplifiers are guaranteed for 6 months. The speakers will be rattle-free. The controls will be scratch-free. Legs and pedal will be included in the package.

 

Klassic Keys also offer custom colour re-spray finish in Royal Blue, Ferra Red & Orange.

Wurlitzer pianos are incredibly complex instruments; the key-action section has over 3,000 components in it (whips, butts, etc. they are genuine pianos!). Every unit is totally stripped down to the key-bed. All 64 hammers, all 64 whip assemblies, all 64 keys are removed and lubricated, replaced or adjusted until all parts are performing as they ought to.

Pictures show exactly how deep the 7-day refurbishment goes; a total disembowelment!

 

A reconstruction with correct fuses, suppressors, and (final factory spec) of improved original 200A amplifier (see on-board fuses moved/improved). The entire piano voiced/tuned to KKGB "pro" standard, with new faceplate/grommets/wiring/reed-bar kit/hum shield/new badge on rear etc and even an in-line passive transformer to futher reduce the inherent hum/ethereal audio intrusions to near zero.

 

All ready now to go live on stage with "Carpenters Gold" tribute act as centre-piece piano, just like the Richard Carpenter model used constantly all through The Carpenters lengthy career.
