The Wurlitzer Action
Throughout it's history, the Wurlitzer's action has evolved considerably.
It is essentially a simplified, rotated version of a common upright piano
action. It's construction differs signifcantly from the Rhodes
and is considerably more complex and manipulatable. It features felt
hammertips and independent adjustments for letoff and lost motion. A
properly regulated Wurlitzer feels excellent. A Wurly that is poorly
regulated usually exhibits problems like double-striking hammers, inadequate
damping, and an uneven keybed.
At Mad Scientist, we'll adjust your board to the original Wurlitzer
factory specifications. We'll polish and treat all of your rail pins,
shrink action centers, replace hammers and dampers, and install all new
felts on your
balance and front rails. We have a huge stock
of fresh new/old stock hammers for all models. After a full regulation
of this kind, your board will play better shape than it did when it
left the factory.
