Here’s the latest from our Custom Shop: The White Wurlitzer 214A–upgraded to eleven!
Here’s the latest stunning White Wurlitzer with our complete Custom Shop and “Rebirth” restoration services. This Custom White Wurlitzer is based off of the cosmetic design that was chosen by Jeff Tweedy for his custom 206A at the Wilco Loft. The design received such a great response that we decided to repeat it with this 214A along with a few other cosmetic and electronic upgrades.
As you’ve come to expect from our custom restorations, this piano sounds and plays even better than it looks! The key bed was completely leveled with all the sharps set to the proper height. And all action assembly springs and felts were replaced before regulation in order to get this thing playing at full dynamic potential!
We also upgraded the electronics in this piano with a Retro Linear EP200A amplifier and its deep variable vibrato. These amplifiers really bring out the best of the Wurlitzer’s tone with a lower noise floor and much more clarity in the lows and mids. The lows sound tremendous through the 214A speaker base! –And you are going to love the deep range of the tremolo along with speed control on the third knob! (Sound samples coming soon)
New key tops always look stunning on a cosmetic restoration and especially when you’re working with white. In order to make the white really pop on this custom restoration we replaced all of the white key tops and sharps. You can see a preview of the before-and-after here:

Here’s the latest custom Wurlitzer from our workshop: The Baby Blue Wurli 206A!
Here’s the latest Custom Shop Wurlitzer restoration from our workshop. This Wurlitzer was restored from a very mint Classroom 206A set and finished in baby blue with white accents.
One of the subtle details for this restoration was using a 203W speaker baffle that allowed us to remove the 206A’s shelf. The 203W’s speaker baffle also gave a nice accent across the bottom of the speaker base. The aluminum pedal and feet were also polished and buffed to give this beauty as much shine as possible.
As you have come to expect from our restorations this beauty sounds and plays as good as it looks! We completely leveled the key bed, replaced all springs and action felts, regulated the action and key travel, and dialed in the amplifier to bring out the best of the classic Wurlitzer tone that we all know and love!
If you are interested in a piece like this we have more Wurlitzer 206A’s that are in need of a good home or studio. These models are usually picked up in near-mint condition since they spend most of their life in a University or school. Many of them come out of storage spaces where they have sat untouched for decades. They may be more cumbersome than a 200A for gigging, but in the studio or for home use the speaker base a 206A blows the internal speakers of a 200A out of the water!
