Is there a wurlitzer 200 and 200-A,or is it normally referred to as the 200?
Yes, there is indeed a 200 AND a 200-A, as well as a 200-B! These models have IDENTICAL actions, cases, legs, sustain pedal, etc. The difference is in the Amplifier. The 200 series has a transistor amplifier, and the 200-A has an updated transistor amplifier. To my ears, I cannot tell the difference in tone between the 200 and the 200-A. I’m told the reason the amps were updated was because the price of NPN-type transistors were less than the PNP-types that were originally used in the original 200. The 200-B actually has an IC-based pre-amp designed to be used for external sound systems, leaving out the internal amplifier that drives the speakers. Question: I am looking for someone who really knows how to work on this particular model. Over the years I’ve had more than a few people work on it and it never has sounded right. Any info that you could share with me would be extremely helpful. Good keyboard techs are the hardest thing to find in the world! What I would recommend doing is bu
