Wurlitzer 214A

One of the few detailed accounts of the Beatles using a Wurlitzer is about the final sustained piano chord in A Day In The Life (at 4:20 min.). Engineer Geoff Emerick lists the instruments involved: two grand piano’s, an upright piano (with two players, McCartney and Starr), a blond-wood spinet, a harmonium, and finally a Wurlitzer piano. The Analogues are using a 214A model from a more recent date than Sgt. Pepper’s; the first 214A’s were made in 1974 and have originally been marketed as classroom piano’s - the reason that a lot of these piano’s are well preserved.
