In many ways, the Wurlitzer Blec~ tronie Piano is very similar te the conventional piano. And, in many ways, it is quite different. Te should be stated at this point thet the Wurlitzer Electronic Piano is a piano with a "purpose." Wot only hae At boon designed to be sold on its own merits in scores of specialized markets where conventional pianos would not be appropriate, but St can and will become an importent factor in increasing the sale of stardard, 8é-note pianos through lesson and rental pronotional prograns. As you will discover, the instrument is extremely simple. This manual, which describes and discusses the basic operating principles of the Wurlitaer Electronic Piano, is in- tended only to serve as 2 guide in the servicing of the piano. It is not intended as a piano service course in "ten easy Lessons." We invite and encourage you to direct any inquiries not answered in this manual te our Service Department. We look forward to the opportunity of being of service to you.

However, damage in shipment occasionally occurs, snd the instrunent stould be thoroughly checked be- fore it is placed in use. (1) Unpack carefulty; examine for in-transit damage. (For hardling of damage clains, see Wurlitzer Pisno Service Manual.) (2) Check amplification system, (3) Check key and action regulation.

TONE PRODUCING PRINCIPLE The Model 110 Wurlitzer Electronic Piano utilizes as a tone generator @ free reed (No. 21, Figs. 4 and 5) actuated by a Piano hammer (lio. 18, Fig. 5)and dampened by a damper (No. 4, Fig. 5) with an actién similar to a standard piano. The musical range of the instrument ie 64 notes beginning at is S5ccpe- (ereies per" second), and exzending’ cheough #Gh 3699 gps. Ona conventional piano this woula be keys #1), through (75: Bho tone pick-ups [how 2t, Figs. 4 and S} are insulated No. 26, Figs. h and 5) from the main bar (No. 25, Figs. 4 and 5) and are mounted so that the reeds vibrate through the open ing when struck by the banner. These tone pick-ups are the fixed plates of a condenser in the capacity-change system. The reeds should be ad justed so that the free swingilg reed clears the pick-ups bub EVER tontacts chen. ‘The pick-ups have a polorizing voltage of 175V through a one~ half megohm resistor and are not a shock hazard. ks the reeds swing away (down) from the pick-ups, the capacity decreases. ‘The capacity change takes place in accordance with the tuned pitch of the reed. This change produces a varying voltage across a load resistor. The voltage is then amplified through the console anplifier. —O INSTRUCTIONS FOR REMOVING THE ACTON The keys, action, and tone generator are mounted on a frame that slides out éf the cabiret. To remove the action from the case, the following steps should be takent (1) Remove the key cover (fallbosrd) by unsnapping fas- teners, opening lid and slipping off split hinges. (See Fig. 3) (2) Remove the 110 Volt input plug from rear of the ca: (Fig. 2) (3) Check to see that the pedal has been removed. (Pedal. available as auxiliery equipment.) (4) Remove the input catle (Fig. 1) generator to the amplifier. (Ne If this Gone, damage might result) Amplifier can be reached by removing the Tour (4] screws in the service panel Y, (Pig. 2-A) and removing the panel itself. (5) Remove four (44) screws from top of music desk assen- bly (Fig. 7). (6) Renove ton (10) screws, marked "Y", in bottom and side of the unit (Fig.'6)..

Key and action regulation on the Wurlitzer Electronic Piano Tequires the services of @ competent plano tuner-technician. Being a simplified action, the regulation differe somewhat from a conventional plano} however, the principles are es- sentially the same. When checking for the proper conditian of an action, the action should be examined for tight or loose centers, and the Keyboard should be checked for free movement of all the Keys at both the balance and the front pin line. Should a sluggish condition prevail dus to excessive moisture in the atmosphere, determine whether the sluggishness is in the keys or the action and follow the instructions under the sections devoted to "Easing Keys" and "Shrinking Action Centers® found in the Wurlitzer Piano Service Manual.

Turning it clock-wise shortens the let-off distanca and counter-clock-wise lengthens let-off distance. Fig. 9 LAVEL KEYS Be sure the action is placed on a level table. If key level~ ing is necessary, it can be done by renoving or adding paper punchings under the felt wasters on the balance rail. Set keys #1, #32, and #64, 1-15/32" from the top of the keyfrane to the inderfeath Side of natural key lip (Refer to Fig.5)~ By using three check points, key leveling is simplified: Level, sharps so that the top surface of the wood key body, directly behind the plastic cap, is slightly below the plastic top of the natural key.

SPRING ADJUSTMENT The damper is returned by a spring (No. 6, Fig. 5) and if the Gampening is too fast or slow it can be regulated by adjust~ ing the springs. \oKINC Blocking hammers are caused by improper capstan screw (Wo-20, Fig.5) adjustment, improper regulating screw adjustment. (tio."19, Pig. 5) Or excessive key dip at point 2, Fig. 5; or ig may be caused, of course, by a combination of two or three of the above. TONES WOT PRODUCED ON LIGHT BLOW This condition is caused by hammers letting off too quickly. Adjust regulating screw (No. 19, Pig. 5) until tones are pro- duced on a light blow without blocking. SHRINKING ACTION Please refer to page 12 of Wurlitzer Piano Service Manual. However, before shrinking action centers, turn the instrument on for Several hours. The heat from the amplifier may dry out the action sufficiently to make shrinking unnecessary. CENTER PIN REPLACEMENT Please refer to page 16 of Wurlitzer Piano Service Manual.

Filing, unless expertly done, can ruin the reed by weakening it and removing the protective coat- Ang which keeps it from rusting. Should it be necessary to renove or repsir a reed, it con be taken out by renoving reed screw (lio. 23, Fig. a]: The read can be replaced or a new one installed by carefully watchin the spacing between the reed and the pick-up (No. 24, Figel when tightening reed screw.
