Going Electric

The Wurly electro-mechanical piano has a sound all its own. Is there such a thing as a perfect emulation? Wurli V sings for itself.

Our exclusive physical modeling technology, Phi®, renders every detail of this classic EP - the reeds, the pickups, the preamp - everything. Simply put, the only other way to play or record a Wurli this real is to hunt down a perfect specimen.

A Keyboardist’s Best Friend

The quest for a portable, electrically amplified piano is almost as old as the use of electricity itself.

The Wurly was an instant hit with everyone from Ray Charles to Supertramp to the band at the corner pub.

Wurli V reproduces the model 200A, the most popular and enduring of the lineup. Compact, portable, stable, and stackable, it got close enough to the dynamic range of an acoustic piano to give players a consistent and great sounding keyboard they could carry from gig to gig.

Simplicity Elevated

By definition, an electric piano doesn’t need a lot of controls. But it plays very nice with effects and an amp. Wurli V’s main interface has it all.

Wurli V keeps it real, adding only the accessories that players of the original might have run their pianos through.

No Soldering Required

Get inside Wurli V. Change its mechanics. The result is a sound palette that goes far beyond what any single electric piano - or even a collection of them - can do.

It’s called the Advanced Panel, and it takes the cover off of Wurli V to reveal a level of precise control only physical modeling can accomplish.

Hear it in action

Wurli V covers surprising stylistic territory. These demos from some of our friends and sound designers showcase its wide skill set.
