1.  Pedal for Wurlitzer C153

Posted 04-20-2017 15:36
Hello Group -

I have a client who just bought a good condition used Wurlitzer C153. When the seller delivered it, he broke off the center pedal.  Before I could get there to intervene, he removed the pedal and its the internal bracket. He was supposedly going to try to repair it. He has not been seen since.

I have searched far and wide for a matching pedal, or pedal set. I know I can get generic pedals from Schaffs or one of the other parts houses. The difficult part it finding a bracket that marches up with the internal mounting plate in the base of the pedestal.

Does anyone out there have an old dead C153 or similar that I could harvest the needed parts from? OR does anyone know where to get genuine Wurlitzer parts? I have called Gibson/Baldwin/Wurlitzer and the guy didn't sound very promising, but I haven't heard back from him yet - -He may surprise me.

Any ideas?

I have an entire pedal lyre with pedals that was taken off a Cameron & Sons grand. It's Chinese and should at least be similar to a Wurlitzer. I'd like to sell the whole thing as a unit.

Arlin, can you post a picture of it?  I have access to a bunch of old Wurlizter piano parts from the Baldwin era, including pedals.  I can check.

I do have several pics I will upload now. I have heard from Baldwin/Wurlitzer and they do not have any of these parts.
