New amp and install - $400 ($500 if reedbar shields needed)
Tuning/voicing to A440 - $200 (+ reed costs)
Complete regulation/lube - $800



Up for sale is an authentic and completely restored/refurbished Wurlitzer 200A with a brand new dead-quiet amplifier. I have been restoring these keyboards for over 10 years now, and I've put in many long hours getting this baby to play like the day it was new.




This particular 200A was berthed in May 1977




Add-ons





• Variable Vibrato - Add $250 and i'll install the Variable Vibrato and the third knob

• FX Loop - Add $50 and i'll install an FX loop jack where the Headphone jack used to be and include the cable necessary to connect to your effects pedals. Any effects will play though the on-board speakers and will also be sent to the Aux Out to connect to your favorite combo amp. If you don't want effects, unplug the effects cable from the FX Loop jack and your 200A returns to it's normal state.



No hum/buzz/static from this baby!


This one is in great shape! Recording ready. Has been completely overhauled, disassembled, lubed, regulated, voiced and tuned. Fully tuned with an analog Peterson strobe tuner within +/- 3 cents across the board. You won't hear any dead/dull/loud/odd or short ringing notes. You won't hear any internal rattling/buzzing. You won't hear any intermittent static in the speakers. You won't have any heavy or sluggish keys. You won't have any side-to-side key slop, and you won't be disappointed with the sound of this 200A.


Don't be fooled! Wurlitzers need regulated after 40+ years and those that aren't will have the following symptoms:
• Non-level keys, uneven key spacing, slop in the keys (this is the only visually-apparent trait as many claim their keyboards are fully serviced, but have ugly non-level keys?)
• Sluggishness/slow action
• Random loud/soft notes
• Dull/short-ringing notes
• Static/hum/buzz
• Lid vibrations

I do this as a hobby and have worked/regulated almost 50 Wurlitzer EP's to date. I work on these in my free time and treat each one as if it were my own. Before I release a keyboard for sale, I make sure it is 100% and play it daily to break in any new parts I have replaced (I have replaced the key bushings, both balance and front pin bushings, in this particular keyboard to eliminate side-to-side slop). This is a tedious task and takes much time, but the reward is worth the effort 100% of the time. No I do not just use the punching tool to deform the key wood and shrink the gap between the bad felts to eliminate the slop (EASY), and no I do not just turn the key pins slightly to eliminate the key slop (EASY). 9 times out of 10 the felt is hardened beyond repair, and 9 times out of 10 I replace!

I take pride in my work and am always open to lend a hand if any problems arise. If you are interested, I am happy to discuss this keyboard with you. I invite you to come play it anytime.





Hurry! I don't keep stock of these keyboards for very long. If you want FX loop or variable vibrato, allow some time for me to do that.

Price is super firm! Cash only! It will be sold here or on Reverb/the bay!
