MILITARY BAND ORGANS for SKATING RINKS, CAROUSELLES, FAIRS and AMUSEMENT PARKS

by THE RUDOLPH WURLITZER MFG. CO.

NORTH TONAWANDA, N. Y.
Where Wurlitzer Band Organs are Built.

1.0 Introduction

WURLITZER MILITARY BAND ORGANS produce lively, enjoyable music of such great volume that they are sure to attract crowds. Built by Wurlitzer, who are renowned throughout the world as the foremost manufacturers of musical instruments, you are assured absolute dependability, and the latest improved features. The variety of selections is greater; the tone quality is superior, and the instrumentation harmonizes and keeps perfect time. Wurlitzer Military Band Organs will create and maintain a splendid income. Many owners of Wurlitzer organs have become independently wealthy. The saving on music, and the increase in patronage should pay for the instrument in a short time, and then yield a handsome profit. You have no orchestra or band problems to worry about. Just press a button, and the instrument becomes your willing servant. You can start early, please your crowd by playing longer numbers, and instead of paying out most of your profit for music, you can save it. A Wurlitzer Military Band never" gets tired," and responds to your instant command. Wurlitzer Music Rolls are cut correctly, and come in all the latest popular and standard selections. By using a paper roll system, we cut the music and reproduce it exactly as originally arranged, giving it the same snap and swing that the composer intended.

2.13 Style No. 180-Concert Band

organ180

2.13.1 Description

In introducing the Style 180 Organ, we have endeavored to produce an instrument that will give satisfactory results in the way of automatic band music for the largest skating rinks built.
The case design is similar to the cut shown above. The front is finished in white enamel, the hand-carved scroll-work decorated with colors and shaded bronzes. The raised panels beautifully decorated with landscapes or flower designs. The case is finished in light Golden Oak.
The instrument has the Duplex Tracker Frame, which is driven separately by a 1/8 H.P. electric motor. This motor is operated by a remote control switch, so that the music can be cut off at any time without shutting off the power on the Blower line. This switch can be placed anywhere desired.
It is impossible to build Bellows strong enough to supply the wind for an instrument of this type. The suction and pressure is supplied by a specially constructed steel Blower, driven by a 3 H.P. electric motor which operates at 3,500 R.P.M.

3.0 Special Features that are Exclusive to Wurlitzer Instruments

3.1 New Shaft Drive Transmission, No Belts

This Shaft Drive Transmission is just what you have been wanting on your organ for years. Taking the transmission used on our Duplex Tracker Frame as a basis, we have developed a strongly built shaft transmission that we are certain will completely eliminate all troubles with the driving of the Tracker Frame. On the Steel Crank Shaft we use a split steel gear which meshes into a steel pinion on the upright shaft. These mesh perfectly and are practically noiseless. At the top of the upright shaft we have a heavy brass gear working into a pinion of the same material, making a quiet transmission. The coupling shaft is of cold rolled steel with a patent universal coupling, made especially for this transmission, at each end, insuring a steady even drive at all times.

3.2 New Pneumatic Rewind, No Levers to Adjust

Our improved Pneumatic Rewind and Drive device is a positive rewind. It eliminates all the levers and adjustments formerly necessary on the device used to shift the frictions from play to rewind position.

3.3 Unit Valve Suction Windchest, Every Valve Accessible

On this new windchest each complete valve is built into an individual unit block. Each unit valve block is held to the channel board of the chest by two screws. Compression springs keep these screws tight and the constant pressure takes up any shrinkage. To remove the valve to clean or adjust it, simply loosen up the two screws. Be sure to draw them tight again when replacing them. The motion of each valve is adjusted to the thousandth of an inch, and should require no readjustment.

3.4 Steel Crank Shaft, No More Breakdowns

Experience taught us that the cast-iron crank shaft could not be depended upon. Rough handling in shipping often caused breakage, completely disabling the organ. As a result, we have substituted the steel crank shaft. This is a much more expensive shaft, but it gives service.

3.5 Metal Tracker Bar Tubing

We are now using tin composition metal tubing, from the tracker bar to the tube strip on the windchest. This tubing will last for years, and removes any possibility of trouble with the tracker bar tubing.

3.6 Removeable Pressure Bellows, Easily Repaired

Our organs are so constructed that the main or Pressure Bellows can be removed in a few moments' time, if in need of repairs. Loosen the pump sticks, take out a screw here and there, remove the wedges and slip the bellows out. No need to dismantle the whole organ.

3.7 New Snare Drum Action

In addition to the improvements mentioned in the previous paragraphs, we have perfected a Snare Drum Action which operates entirely from the suction. This action does away with the belts, pulleys and cogs formerly used. It is a positive action, with much quicker repetition and snappier action. To remove the Snare Drum from the side of the organ, simply pull off the half-inch rubber tube and lift off the bracket on which the drum is mounted.

3.8 Solid Bottoms

We are also equipping all our organs with a solid platform underneath. This is a big improvement over the old construction. This platform protects the bottom pipes of the organ when moving from place to place, and helps to keep them dry. Drums, equipped with the latest improved automatic spring tension rods, which keep the drum heads always at the proper tension. This feature alone is invaluable when the instruments are used for rink or carouselle purposes where the drum heads are exposed to the constant change of temperature.

3.9 Music Rolls

Our Long Tune Weather-Proof Music Rolls have revolutionized Band Organ construction. Arranged by the best artists obtainable and cut on specially treated weather-proof paper made especially for this use, these rolls play an important part in demonstrating the musical qualities of the Band Organ. No organ can give its best service without the latest and best music. Not only must the music be new but, the rolls must be strong and durable, made to stand long usage and temperature changes. Wurlitzer Long Tune Rolls meet these requirements completely.
