Question about Audio Players & Recorders

3 Answers

I have a Wurlitzer Omni 3000 organ that was given to me. When I turn it on, everything lights up but not getting any sound except in piano mode. With volume turned to maximum, you can very faintly hear the piano notes. Haven't been able to locate any technician in this area. Are there any troubleshooting publications available for this organ? What would you suggest?

    The organ lights up when turned on but has no volume. When I vacumned the living room floor, I accidently turned the bench over, it hit the big pedal and after that it had no volume. I called a technician and he said the organs were built to play out after i5 years. I do not believe this organ is made so c heaply because Wurlitzer has such a good name. Marylou Rosener I can be reached at marylourosener@charter.net Any help will be appreciated.

You might have disengaged the " Big Pedal" called the expression pedal either the leakage or the wiring. Have someone check that out it where I would start.

Hello!
I had several friends over the years who've had Wurlizer organs and they always "swear" by them. Guess they would be somewhat like Maytag products.

Anyway, I called one of them and she said she finally was able to get a partial solution from a friend of hers.

However crazy this sounds, she assures me that this procedure helped:

Look on the middle of the back of the organ, equidistant from corner to corner. There should be a knob of sorts which is kind of gold or bronze color. If the numbers haven't worn off, they should be around this knob. She said it works like this: turn the knob three times to the right, then four times to the left, and then push up. This supposedly resets the mechanism inside the organ that was loosened when your bench contacted the big pedal.

It's certainly worth a try, isn't it?

QS8 keyboard. Why is volume in organ mode much louder than piano mode when I switch between modes without touching volume slide?


On organ mode, in general, almost all brands of the modern keyboard, velocity setting is not enabled. Setting velocity is used to determine how much the level of the sound that follows how strongly you press the keys. It is really just to imitate the sound of vintage organs, which in the past, electronic organ technologi not use the velocity on the keys. So, how strong / slow we press the keys, the sound level will remain the same.
At the Piano mode,modern keyboard using setting velocity. This also to imitate an acoustic piano, which, if we press the keys slowly, the sound level will be slow as well, and vice versa.
So, in your case,at the same volume slider, try to play on the organ modes, note level. Moving to the piano mode and press the keys securely powered (full power). Then the sound level should be equal to the organ mode.
On modern keyboards, also included organ sound that added velocity setting. Usually found on the user bank.

What is the age of my Wurlitzer piano serial number 192157?


Free Piano Age Research Look here. It looks like it was built between 1939 and 1940. Go down the page til you find Wurlitzer; after 1937: The year built is found by finding the serial number 192157, which would be between 180000 and 195000. That would make it having been built between 1939 and 1940. Hopefully, that's correct.

How much is my Wurlitzer upright piano serial #641 157 worth?


You generally could not get a qualified answer to such a "collectibles/antiques" question on a Q&A forum; and if you did, how reliable would it be, unless answerer had the catalog to quote to you from. Because your item is relatively scarce and becoming more so, you should seek out a catalog or perhaps a Wurlitzer owners Website where someone is more apt to have a catalog. It will also help to have more details about your piano and its current tuning and sound quality and any damage and such. A piano repair facility also might be better able to steer you to a source for valuation. This answer assumes that you have already checked for comparables on classified and auction sites.

Shure beta 57A ..low recording volume from acoustic piano ...Directly to laptop no mixer used


are you using an interface?
Your level will be always be lower if you are going straight in.
Your interface and mixer will help you get the correct level in to your system before recording and also shaping the sound after the recording.You just need to get more gain up in there

I don't know if you already fixed your problem, but I just figured out something that worked for me.

I had the same problem, and I used a System Reset to fix it. Here's how you do it:

Press Transpose/Function
Press down until you see Init
Press right until you see InitSys
Press yes twice
Wait until it's ready
Fixed! :)

Highest 13 keys on top and on bottom boards do not function


Those notes are likely scanned along with all the others. The strobe selection lines for those are likely failed... this might be only two wires.

IF you have ribbon style cables in the unit, this is often caused when people pull the cables by the edges to remove from connectors.

Look for this and a connector that might have one end lifted where a couple wires aren't quite connecting. THIS IS not ANY ISSUE OF FUSES.
