Oh my, got a 200a, and I just love it. It actually makes you play better! I've been playing a clavinet for a while, but the wurli is much easier to play, everything just sounds lovely, from slow quiet jazz with lots of long harmonies, to fast and rocking funck. Great and inspiring instrument.

Never have I played any instrument as inspiring as the Wurly. I have to admit, I don't own one, but played one quite a bit when our previous drummer (the owner) was still in the band. Guitar is my #1 instrument, but when the 200A was around, I'm sure the Strat was terribly jealous. It never gave us any problems, never needed tuning, never needed maintennance, and was completely original- maybe that was a fluke, but this thing is beautiful. I will never stop asking to buy it from him, who is reluctant now that we kicked him out. 5 most definitely, and I can't believe it gets 50% for bass, considering how fat and wonderful the low end is.

I have a Wurly EP-200 (not the a model). When I got it, it was pretty beatup, but after some time and effort(and thanks to vintage vibe for parts), I was able to bring my Wurly back into tune and get it playable. The only thing I have left to fix now is some bad capacitors in the amp section.

Anyway, This is a great keyboard and a joy to play. I also have a rhodes stage piano, and the wurly seems to fit and standout in mixes better. Not to mention, the Rhodes has a very stiff action compared to the Wurly. The sound is great especially when played hard. Anyway, If you can ge tyour hands on a wurly- it is well worth the expense and effort.

I have played a Wulitzer on and off for 30 or so years, and picked up high milage version about 10 years ago. To begin with, it is a real electric piano with a great, quick, action- much faster than any Rhodes I have ever played. The sound is classic- not a real piano, but something unique. The vibrato, headphone jack, small size and decent weight make this a cool sounding, fun piano to own. I leave it in a corner of my office to play when I need a break. I probably would not want to lug it around for gigs (the legs are not too sturdy, but I have used it on occasion) and repairs and tuning are both nightmares.

If you are a piano player, you can appreciate that a synthesizer just does not have that certain something. I must confess that I do really enjoy playing it, which is really the most important part of an instrument IMHO. For what it is, an old, classic keyboard, I think it is great.

I've got one of these. It's a real instrument that (should) inspire you to play. I got mine for that reason - though I must admit I don't play it very often. Great warm sound, does require maintenence, if you can find one bear that in mind. The EP has something like 10,000 components!

Worth it - fits nicely into small alcoves etc and can't really be replicated in software - not that I've heard. Each instrument has it's own sound and due to the mechanical nature of the instrument inconsistancies. The Software emulators don't seem to capture this.

Not much fun to carry around though.
