Item specifics

Condition: Used  

For your consideration an awesome vintage Wurlitzer model 140B electric piano. A lesser-known and often overlooked member of the Wurlitzer family tree, the 140B is the father of the 200 series. As is often the case with fathers and sons, the 140B can drink more whiskey, grow a better beard and had a motorcycle long before the 200A. Metaphors aside, all I'm saying is the 140B is a KILLER PIANO and will give a 200A a run for it's money any day of the week. What piano did Ray Charles play on "What'd I Say"? That's right, the 140B. 
Known for the growly, gritty lows, belly highs and groovy as gravy VIBRATO this piano is perfect for recording and would be a wonderful addition to your home or professional studio. In contrast to the the 200 series pianos, the 140B features volume and vibrato controls to the left of the keybed and a single rear-mounted speaker that makes for a slightly rounder, warmer tone. But when it's cranked to 10 you're still going to get that nice bark we've all come to know and love. The real deal piano right here. The tone is instantly recognizable and has yet to be authentically re-produced by any plug-in, Nord or other known imposters.

As the pictures and video will show, this particular EP is in very good shape considering it obviously has some history on the road. Legend has it that it was used on tour by a little rock group called Foreigner. I make no guarantees that this is a Foreigner original nor am I selling this piano as Foreigner memorabilia--but that's the story of the studio from which it was acquired. But I many 140Bs that have been toured, this piano was painted black. Unlike many toured 140Bs, the paint job looks GREAT! There is considerable checking and noticeable chips in a few keys. However the action is fast and easy, the keybed is level and it is a PLEASURE to play! The piano also enjoyed a professional re-cap job and the power receptacle was updated for modern convenience. All of the notes are in tune, the electronics are tip-top and it sounds AMAZING! Included are the original legs and a power cord. It is compact and pleasing to the eye, a beautiful vintage instrument for your home! A super COOL Wurli, YOU WILL LOVE IT!

Buy with confidence, see my 100% feedback! Feel free to contact me with questions. I've shipped many Rhodes, Wurlis and organs cross-country and overseas. 

And now the actual 140B at work:
