Behold the mighty Wurlitzer 112!!!
by Chris Randall
I'm posting from Fountain something or other, Arizona today. (It's a suburb of Phoenix. Fountain Hills? Something like that.) I drove over to my good friend Mike Fisher's house to pick up a Wurlitzer 112 electric piano. Man, this thing is a joy to play. Other than a slightly scratchy volume pot, and some wear on the corners, this bad boy is in top form. I can't wait to get home and start laying down tracks with it. Between the Wurlitzer Sideman and this, I have most of the tools an electronic band c. 1959 would be rocking the proto-rave with.
Tomorrow, I'm picking up a Matrix 6. Don't know what's in store with that, but it'll be a good start for my six-voice CEM synths collection I spoke of the other day. That should be ridiculous.
