Wurlitzer

A two-tier single valve action. The valves are the same as used on their line of later coin-operated pianos, with the individual unit valve block. However, most foot-pump players used a stack which utilized only the glue-in steel valve plate stamping, the valve and the molded plastic valve seat ring below. The pouches were zephyr skin and the board with the valve wells was glued to the pouch board, making them inaccessible. Illustrated below is the valve and valve seat.

Since "Player-Care" is an internet business, I prefer that we correspond via E-Mail (click here to fill out the 'Request Form'). However, if I'm not in the middle of some other activity, you can reach me at 732-840-8787. But please understand that during the hours from 8AM-5PM EST (Mon-Sat), I'm generally quite busy. So, I probably won't answer the phone. If you get the answering machine, please leave a detailed message stating the reason for your call. Also, repeat your name and phone number clearly and distinctly. By necessity, I prioritize everything in my life. And, if you call and just leave your name and number, and ask me to call you back, it might be a day or two before I return your call. Why? Because I don't know why you want me to call and I might not be prepared to assist you in an effective and efficient manner. If you leave me an E-Mail address (which I prefer), spell it out phonetically. The more you do to help me, the more I can help you in return. Don't rush. You have four minutes to record your message.
