This is a vintage 1975 Wurlitzer 210 electric piano. This particular example, serial number 101783, is in incredibly clean 100% all original condition and features the very rare factory quad-speaker bottom cabinet, the original bench, and the original sheet music stand! Those who favor well-preserved pieces will absolutely adore this stunning specimen. Identical to the 200A in every respect, but with an augmented speaker situation including: 4 speakers total, 2 of which share a baffle facing the player, 2 of which are mounted on the opposite side, this is widely considered the absolute pinnacle of Wurlitzer electric pianos, even surpassing the famously fancy Model 270 Butterfly Baby Grand, which only has (2) 8″ speakers, in both form and function. The Wurlitzer 210 is extremely rare and average examples are incredibly few and far between.
The Wurlitzer 200A met a demand, while the Wurlitzer 210 was an achievement. While the classic 200A design finally rid the 200 of inherent noise issues, it still didn’t resolve the insufficient speaker setup. That is where the 210’s superiority remains uncontested: there is no other electric Wurly more qualified for maximum volume than this model. Unlike the Baby Butterfly Grand, with only 1/2 the number of speakers, true stereo imaging can be achieved with the ability to place microphones on either side of the keyboard’s speaker cabinet: this also reduces undesired performance and mechanical noises.
Of all the available Wurlitzer 210s I have seen on eBay (which is probably less than 5 in the past 10 years) this is without a doubt the finest. It is in 100% all original mint condition.
With a signature sound all their own, Wurlys have been featured on some of the most successful pop recordings in recent history, including: “These Eyes” by the Guess Who, “Miss You” by the Rolling Stones and Queen’s “You’re My Best Friend”. A must have instrument for any serious studio, this Wurlitzer 210 will become common place on your recordings, or for those enthusiasts who purely enjoy creating and playing music, you will not find a more enjoyable, more inspirational, musical instrument. We have owned and sold many Wurlitzer keyboards, including the following models: 140B, 200, 200A, 210, etc., and it is our contention that the 210 was clearly their premier product.
As mentioned, this studio-ready example works perfectly, and remains in factory flawless pitch with amazingly level action. The speakers are in like new functional shape, and it is in mechanically glorious condition. As can be seen in the series of very high resolution photos above, the cosmetic condition is extremely impressive.
