The Wurlitzer 200A is an electric piano that like the name states has 73 keys and has become a classic instrument. It has built in speakers as well as outputs if you want to send this to an amp or direct and also has a built in tremolo effect. It has knobs to control the volume and the speed of the tremolo effect. It also has a sustain pedal and handles on it for easy moving. The feel of the keyboard is awesome overall as it is easy to play and feels great on the fingers. This great feel makes me want to play it all of the time because it is so easy to play and makes everything you play sound great in my opinion. The sound quality of the Wurlitzer 200A is also top notch as it has a great overall tone that is uniquely recognizable. I love the way that this keyboard sound and the sustain pedal and tremolo effect only add to its versatility, as it would be a great sounding keyboard without either of these features. While there are a number of different Rhodes electric pianos made by Fender that are great models, the Wurlitzer 200A stands out as a perfected model and is one that is almost flawless. The price of the Wurlitzer 200A isn't cheap, but is definitely a reasonable price used if you can find one as this is truly a great electric piano that has a ton of great features to it. I can't say enough about how great all of the electric pianos sound in Fender Rhodes family, and the Wurlitzer 200A is one of the best of its kind. Overall, highly recommended to those looking for a great electric piano. This board is vintage and if you love vintage sounds and looks this one is for you. But good luck finding it.
What can be said about this instrument that hasn't already been said? There's a reason that these are selling at absurdly high rates right now. From Joni Mitchell to Ray Charles to Motown, many great recordings have been made using these great electric pianos. The 200A is a newer model. When I learned that, I was skeptical, as I remember many companies tampering with a classic and turning out a sub-par imitation. However, the 200A is just as good as the original Wurlitzers, at least as far as I could ever tell. It also has a bit more range than those, as there is a knob for controlling tremolo as well as the original volume knob. This is the only benefit that it has over the 112, but it is a tremendous benefit, as it offers far more range on the natural instrument and requires the player to rely less on outside interference. It also has a speaker which allows the player to quietly play it acoustically. It does have the amp output as well. This, in my opinion, is where the interesting possibilities lie. I love the natural distortion that occurs on this instrument. When I listen to Ray Charles' "What'd I Say" or Marvin's "I Heard it Through the Grapevine", I love the distortion that I hear on them. I'm not even sure that it was intentional, but it's almost irrelevant for me as it's the sound I prefer.This similar effect can be achieved, to various intensities and settings, with a good Fender Twin amp, although any good tube amp will do really. Distortion the one advantage that this has over the Fender Rhodes, which doesn't sound as good distorted, although that instrument is great in it's own right. Great for jazz, blues, rock, gospel, even great hip-hop and dance music has featured these instruments. If you can find/afford a good one, it's well worth it, as there aren't many who can. Be prepared to empty out the account though. For serious musicians only, as far as I'm concerned.
I've first used a Wurlizter 200A about five years ago and was immediately blown away by the sound of it. It has the classic Wurli electric piano sound that was used by guys like Ray Charles. The instrument is really straight forward with a volume knob and settings to control the rate of the tremolo effect. It has a sustain pedal and built in speaker so you can just turn it on and play without having to hook it up to an amp, however, it also has outputs that you can send to an external amp if you want to. Being a sucker for the electric piano, this has all the qualities I look for in one. For starters, the action of the piano is real fluid and easy to play. This makes me feel like I am good and helps me to play better. The tone quality of this piano is the best part about it. It is rich in tone and the tremolo is awesome. This piano has become a classic as it has its own unique electric piano tone that has become highly sought after. While each has its own unique tone, I would compare this to a Fender Rhodes as it is an electric piano made by a different company in the same price range. While it is all about personal preference, I usually prefer to play the 200A over any other electric keyboard, as the feel and great sound make for a great overall piano. While you can get pretty close with software like Native Instruments Elektrik Piano, in my opinion no software can reproduce the sound of an instrument like this. If you can find one used, these go for about $1000 USD, which is a reasonable price considering the overall tone quality of this, and I would recommend it to all interested in electric pianos.
Five and a half octaves in a molded plastic case fawn 70s, almost a toy look, and yet ..... a legend!
At departure it was intended as a small study piano with Americans, some of them were linkable in the schools of music but fortunately he came out of the classroom to accompany the greatest hits of history of pop: "money", "logical song" ........
Unlike the Fender Rhodes electric piano is a functioning with quite Paisses strips loaded with static electricity, sound possde then a biting attack and another color to it if Particular re. It is quite surprising at the beginning to feel the vibrations of the reeds get onto the keyboard, you suddenly port in a world that is far, very far from the accumulators
the keyboard is hard enough pieces of the mechanical hammers are short and quick answer is it possible to make these famous sixteenth note rhythm in the Manire of "Supertramp".
Choose rather to make rock riffs / pop, put him a nice little chorus and "Goodbye Stranger" it becomes downright magical
For the jazz fusion prfrez a Rhodes has her much more sustain, but Ray Charles Vonda Sheppard, Wurli baladera is both the blue rythm'and the country.
It possde vibrato which only the depth varies, incorporated an amp and there is a cot hp each. It is autonomous, not too heavy, once the foot enlevs he takes under his arm like a big synth.
It is fragile, capricious, rgler not easy, but once that was over the fingers, the guaranteed thrill.
