    Then it was the ES 4800. The 4602 only had an expression pedal.

    Not quite right to call it an amplified reed organ, though. The actual sound of the reeds was never heard, let alone amplified. Wurlitzer went to great lengths to ensure you never heard the reeds! They were part of the electrostatic tone generation system, hence ES. There are many threads on the forum about these wondrous machines and how they worked.

    Thank you so much. It was a VERY large organ, so it was probably the 4800. Much appreciated.

    This organ no doubt was a Wurlitzer 4602 model or it could have been the very large Wurlitzer ES 4800 model.

    Identify A Wurlitzer

    When I was in high school, we had a Wurlitzer in our theatre. I wonder if anyone can tell me the model based on this description?
    Foremost, it was an amplified reed organ. Circa 1956-1958? It was a full / large console.
    There was NO Leslie nor was there any reverb.
    It had two full manuals and a 32 AGO pedal board.
    There was a folding lid, and it had a round speaker above the pedals.
    There were three or four mixture tabs.
    Any idea what model it was?
