    • I can't stand Jimmy Fallon (sorry wrong thread.)
    • Vintage Vibe pianos are their own, brand new pianos, not refurbished originals. Their well-running repair/parts business was what enabled them to build new electromechanical pianos. Since we've had several companies re-issuing Rhodes(-like) pianos over the years (Mk7, Vintage Vibe, Mk8), and none re-issuing Wurlis, I think it makes sense to look at how that business works when trying to gauge what a "new Wurli" might mean.      There is literally nobody who would not prefer a vintage Hammond, given both options. The reasons that (hardware) clones exist that I can see are: • Weight/Bulk • Reliability • Cost of upkeep • Hassle of requiring recording space/noise level, and • sometimes price (depending on the clone; some are more expensive than shopping around for a good deal on a real Hammond, plugins can be free or $50)   Literally none of that applies to a Wurlitzer piano except price — and there are tons of cheap or free plugins, and no way a good Wurli reissue will be cheaper than a used one.  A reissue will be of comparable weight and bulk. A Wurli is pretty light.  My Wurli was serviced when I got it twenty years ago, and has been rock-solid in studio and gigging ever since. I've had to replace a handful of reeds, but that applies to any reissue, as well. (They're not expensive.)    I usually record it DI through a nice preamp. Sounds great. No issue with neighbours.   The weak spot of the Wurli, IMO is its keyboard action. And keyboard mechanics will probably be the most expensive part of any reissue.     
    • I have zero need for this, but for US $13, I'll probably buy it anyway, just to play around with it and decide I have zero need for this. 
    • This might help you?   https://www.netweters.nl/roland/usertones.php (Easiest way to quickly find a User tone is to search for the number. I.e. "Z-Core User 1612", search for "1612" and it will pop up.)

    • This doesn't really affect me (yet) thanks to how and what I play.  But that said, I completely, 100% agree that these fixed split points are unacceptable.  The idea that the most expensive, capable, best sounding board of its kind, restricts players to preset split points is simply impossible for me to understand.  Is there any other board that does this?  I mean, I guess it'd be sort of OK if there were only one key that people play in.  But obviously that's not the case!
    • Yes, that will give you the same sound.
    • Can you manually push that drawbar in when percussion is engaged and get the same effect as a workaround? (non-Nord guy question)
