Wurly Model 120 is based on the Wurlitzer Model 120 portable electric piano from the 1950s, one of the earliest electric pianos to find its way into the pop music charts. Wurlitzer electric pianos use hammers striking a metal reed and electromagnetic pickups for their distinctive tone.
The Model 120 also has a valve-based Class AB push-pull amplifier that uses two 6v6 vacuum tubes. The result is a super-warm tonality that contrasts well with the later model Wurlitzer 200A electric piano.
Ray Charles used the Model 120 to great effect on the songs, “What I’d Say” and “Unchain My Heart.” The Model that we sampled for Wurly Model 120 is a superbly maintained vintage specimen from 1959, full of mid-century modern style. We used IK’s super deep multi-velocity sampling techniques to capture all its distinctive analog tone and soulful dynamics.
