Question about Music

Open Question

I have a Wurlitzer Organ model 4373 with Orbit III. The small keys on the top row will not give a sound. Also the second row of tabs do not seem to give any sound on any of the keyboards. These are gray tabs numbered 16,8 ...all the way to 11/3, followed bt red tabs reed, brass and string, then yellow tabs Banjo, harpsy chord, electric piano, vibes & chimes. Would anyone know if this is an expensive fix, or is this something that I might do by changing a fuse or fix a connection? Tom

    I took the back cover off and found that there is a lose belt which fails to turn the wheel. The belt has expanded and will not allow the snall spinning wheel to turn the larger one. Maybe that has something to do with it?

I have cross-referenced most of the Wurlitzer 200A transistors to off-the-shelf replacement types. You can find the list at http://www.bustedgear.com/res_Wurlitzer_200A_transistors.html

SOURCE: Wurlitzer organ, highest key plays note one octave too low.

If this is the kind of organ with the wire sticking out of the key that makes contact with the bus bar to create the note you will have to make sure that key is operating the same as adjacent keys. The busbars have to be clean and the contact wires have to be clean. Sometimes when cleaning the wires they will spring out of place and not make contact with the appropriate bus bars. Check that key against the rest and see what you find. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Estey chord organ giving off sharp metallic smell

The organ is basically a harmonica gated by keys. It has reeds and a fan.

I would open it up and clean everything. It is possible a mouse has gotten in there and they stink including their messes for quite a while.

You might need to lube the fan.

SOURCE: Re: Wurlitzer Digital Home Organ

If you have it apart, look in the area of where the power cord goes in. It would help me if you could mention the model number of the organ.The capacitors are in the same area as a fuse would be. The capacitors smooth and filter the A.C. power after the power goes into the power transformer and is then converted to D.C. to run the components. A fuse could be in the A.C. line or in the D.C. line depending on what it is designed to protect. With a model number we could do a search for a schematic and have a look at the most likely problem spots. The schematics for older analog organs are getting hard to find for free but a newer digital one may be easier. Let me know how you make out. Here is an interesting article that may give you some clues:http://www.theatreorgans.com/hammond/keng/kenhtml/wurlitzer%20organs%20by%20frank%20pugno.htm Here is another link with info:http://www.combo-organ.com/spares_and_repairs.htm#Electrolytics Let me know if this helps.

Where can I get a users manual for a Wurlitzer Model 565 organ?


There is a Wurlitzer 565 in perfect condition onE bay with an owners manual. If you contact the owner perhaps they can give you some contact info inside the manual on where to get a duplicate. or for a fee perhaps they can make you a copy. If not The Wurlitzer Co. was originally from North Tonawanda, NY. I Lived there for years. It is now a museum. "The Wurlitzer Factory." If you google it you can contact them and they may be able to help you. good luck in your search.

Try this: http://www.amazon.com/Wurlitzer-Organ-owners-manual-model/dp/images/B002UJXFYM
Afterwards, if this is NOT what you want, open up a browser window, type in google.com and then, enter Wurlitzer 4300 Owner's Manual. Amazing, huh?

Where can I find an operating manual for wurlitzer organ model 930-T . I just purchased this organ and do not know much about it's features. Some of the writing on the buttons has worn off as to their...


The only advice I can give you is to join an organ forum and post asking for a manual. Otherwise you will have to pay for one. The best source I can seem to find is through:http://mitatechs.org/node/385 or here:http://wdgreenhill.com/manu/wurlitzer_a.htm and they don't list a service manual for that model. Sorry I couldn't be more help.

I have a Casio WK3500 keyboard. How can I reproduce the sound of a Wurlitzer organ?


Try voice 9 in the bank 96. That is for a theater organ type sound. You would need decent sound system to amplify this and to sound anywhere near decent.
