  • How do I remove the 2 octave pedals on Wurlitzer 802?

    Hi Everybody. I am trying to get to the back of the 2 octave bass pedals on a Wurlitzer 802 so I can troubleshoot some pedals not making any sounds. I took the back off but there was a lot of stuff in the way. After I get that fixed I need to figure out why some stop banks are much quieter than other sets. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Generally, the Wurlitzer large pedalboards required that you lift up the rear slightly (3 to 4 inches) and pull backwards. There was usually a bent metal tongue that latched into the console. After pulling backwards a few inches, the ones I've worked with had electrical connectors that had to be unplugged to completely remove the pedals, but I haven't worked specifically on an 802.

    Most builders, however, designed a system and used it across the board over a long time period, so this might work for you

      Same on my 950, the pedalboard detaches by pulling it away from the front of the organ and unplugging 3 connectors, I googled the 802 and the pedalboard looks to be the standard wurlitzer design.
