Wurlitzer Piano Restoration
The Wurlitzer electric piano is a specialty instrument with a more unconventional design compared to traditional acoustic pianos. It takes an understanding of its unique design and quirks to properly understand how to maximize the Wurly’s true potential of a world class piano.
The first step in any servicing or restoration project is the initial assessment of the various parts and tolerances necessary to achieve a high quality instrument.
Retro Rentals & Restorations offers a free comprehensive assessment, covering all major facets of the Wurlitzer, for any new client proceeding with our recommended repairs. For those desiring a full assessment in order to perform their own repair or restoration, all recommendations including a parts list will be made for a fee of $195. A digital assessment via submitted photos is also available.
