Wurlitzer Repairs

“I love my Wurli but there are some issues“:

Have you ever noticed there are enough Rhodes repair shops around but not a lot of Wurli techs?

A Wurlitzer is much more closely related to an acoustic grand piano in many ways. It has whippens, jacks, capstans, let of rail, damper levers, etc. A Rhodes in comparison is quite simple.

You really need to know what you are doing to properly regulate a Wurlitzer electric piano.

Wurlitzer Electric Piano Repair

A blessing and a curse:

Unlike a Rhodes, a Wurlitzer electric piano has an onboard amp/circuit board. It is nice to be able to have powered speakers right in the unit as well as vibrato. The rub – these electronics are rather old and archaic and can need some attention.

How do you tune this thing?

There is a long learning curve in getting proficient in tuning a Wurli. In order to properly tune one you add or take a way solder on each reed.

What is Regulation?:

The piano technicians guild says “Regulation is the adjustment of the mechanical aspects of the pianos to compensate for the effects of wear, the compacting and settling of cloth, felt, and buckskin, as well as dimensional changes in wood and wool parts due to changes in humidity.”

What does that mean for you? It means – Your Wurlitzer is going to feel like it never has before.
