Description
Up for sale, a 1978 Wurlitzer model 200A piano in excellent condition and in good working order. This Wurlitzer is a stunning and well kept example, with brand new chrome legs, music stand, and sustain pedal courtesy of Vintage Vibe! The keyboard has just been thoroughly serviced by our preferred Wurlitzer restoration shop, Purktronics, with a recapped amplifier, complete action regulation and tuning/voicing. The tone is notably clear and balanced, with optimal headroom. Widely considered to be the pinnacle of Wurltizer electric piano refinement, the 200A has ideal Wurly tone that is undeniably rich and chimey. The piano has smooth growl and great midrange content with tone that is defined and balanced, and an elegant action design that is simply a joy to play. The 200A has a responsive and smooth feel unlike any other electric piano!

This piano is in great shape, with little wear to the hammer tips, a very responsive damper rail and action that is consistent and quick, with no sluggish notes or excessive side to side motion of the keys. The amp has a nice low noise floor with good volume and a focused, warm tone from the pair of original 5x7" speakers. In fact, the volume produced by the onboard speakers is noticeably cleaner and more robust than earlier Wurlitzer models and a great tone for recording purposes in particular. The vibrato control has a strong pulse to it with a waveform that isn't too choppy, yet provides a very present tremolo effect. The CTS pots were replaced in 1985 and date to that year, while the stock Schumacher transformer is present and dates to '78. The piano also boasts an updated IEC style three-prong power cable input.

Cosmetically, the piano is in great overall condition with the original black plastic molded top. The top is a shiny, deep shade of black and is complete with the original knobs, brushed aluminum faceplate, and a brand new music stand! The bottom of this piano (with original paper and metal labels) shows only some minor edge wear, and there is one small chip missing in the curved plastic top adjacent to the music stand mounting screw as seen in the photos. There are a few scuffs on the original faceplate and also a few tiny doweled and touched up holes on the front edge of the piano from a previously removed handle, but these blend in and are very difficult to capture with a camera lens. Overall, this is a clean and well maintained Wurly 200A, and as the photos show, this piano would display well in a studio!
