1976 Wurlitzer 200A Conversion Cream Top Vintage Electric Piano, Fully Serviced 206A


+ shipping

Up for sale, a 1976 Wurlitzer 200A conversion vintage electric piano in excellent condition and in good working order. This Wurlitzer is a clean and freshly serviced example, converted from a 206A home/studio model by removing the lower speaker cabinet and upgrading the preamp to function identically to a 200A.

The piano has just been thoroughly serviced by our preferred Wurlitzer restoration shop, Purktronics, to ensure optimal performance. The piano has been tuned and voiced with full action shrink, lube and regulation, and new damper grommets installed throughout. The amplifier features new caps and select resistors, with the original soldered-in PCB fuses replaced with resettable fuses, a rewired aux output, and a modern pair of oval speakers.

Widely considered to be the pinnacle of Wurlitzer electric piano refinement, the 200A offers a surprising amount of volume from the internal speakers, as well as through the 1/4" output. Thick, chiming, and nuanced, it's a tone that can stay particularly clean or overdrive smoothly when you play more aggressively. With 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 properly calibrated 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 low noise floor with good volume and a focused, warm tone from the pair of modern ceramic magnet 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 has a strong pulse to it, with a waveform that isn't too choppy, yet provides a very present tremolo effect. The Schumacher transformer is original, dating to the 51st week of 1976. The piano also boasts an upgraded IEC three-prong power cable input.

The base of the piano shows light wear along the edges, retaining its original 206A badge, and also somewhat crudely cut to accommodate the Aux Out jack and corresponding Aux Volume trim pot. An 8 ohm Speaker Out has also been added. The cream top shows only a few minor scuffs, and the stock faceplate is complete with the original knobs.

The chrome legs are a replacement set, and the sustain pedal has both a new cable and pedal.
