Wurlitzer EP-200

(Continued from Fender Rhodes)

Then, at the worst possible moment, you find a Wurlitzer. It costs almost as much as both the Rhodes put together. But you haven’t received the cheque for the first one yet, and you tell yourself that once you subtract what is now the “generic free money I made for having such a good eye for electric pianos” from the cost of the Wurly, well, that’s got to be the best price anyone has paid for an ep-200 in the last five years.

And now you can make even more money renting electric pianos to studios and bands, because you have the Stevie Wonder electric piano AND the Supertramp electric piano. The money you will spend repairing the damage done to them by the people who rent them will just be the cost of doing business, and you’ll break even, at least.

If you do better than break even, then you’ll eventually be able to pay off the credit card that you used to buy the Hohner D6 Clavinet off the internet.

(In reality I bought the Clav over the phone from a store in Montreal, and the only time this piano was rented out was to Joe Strummer’s band for an HMV in-store).
