For Sale: Wurlitzer 206A Restored to Order

ROTATED 206A Photo

Here comes another set of Wurlitzer student models through our workshop for restoration! We recently acquired a full classroom set of Wurlitzer 206A pianos from a local music school that no longer had room for the electro-mechanical instruments. If you are not familiar with the model 206A it is an identical instrument to the 200A with a larger speaker bass. They are ideal models for recording studios or they can be easily converted to 200A specifications with reproduction legs and sustain pedals.

We understand that the tan or beige finish doesn’t immediately seem very rock and roll but in fact these pianos look great under colorful stage lighting. They are also ideal candidates for custom cosmetics and we have used 206A for the custom White Wilco Loft Wurlitzer and Kesha’s Psychedlic Wurlitzer.

This Wurlitzer was fully restored by our workshop rebuilding and regulating the key bed and action assembly so that it is playing better than the day that it left the Wurlitzer factory. The original 200 amplifier was removed and fitted with the Warneck Research EP200 amplifier with a third knob for speed controlled vibrato. As always we promise that it plays and sounds even better than it looks!

The psychedelic paint job was commissioned from friend of the workshop Brendan Luchik.
