A SOULFUL ALTERNATIVE TO OTHER STAGE PIANOS
Introducing the WURLY MODEL 120, a portable electric piano by IK Multimedia.
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. Ray Charles used the Model 120 to great effect on the songs, “What I’d Say” and “Unchain My Heart.”
With WURLY MODEL 120, you’ll find an extraordinary source of inspiration and what may be the missing link in most keyboard collections: a piano that truly lets you unchain your heart in music.

When a Rhodes is not enough
The Model that the IK Multimedia team 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.
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.
