Wurlitzer Electronic Piano model 145B

Made by: Wurlitzer

20th Century

North America


First developed in the 1950s, the Wurlitzer Electronic Piano’s unique tone is generated by striking an amplified metal reed with a piano hammer.  Once launched, the model 145B Wurlitzer had perfected the action of their electromechanical instrument.   In 1968, the iconic model 200 was introduced and quickly became a hit with popular musicians – enduring through timeless albums from Cannonball Adderly, Marvin Gaye, and Steely Dan, to Beck.
