Reproduction of 1942 Wurlitzer 71
Over 3,000 Selections*
I'll be the first
to admit, I'm not an expert on the history of either the 1940/1941
Wurlitzer Counter Model 71 or this Antique
Apparatus CD-91 which is a
reproduction of it.
That said I have
two guys who work with me that probably know the "workings"
of this CD-91 better than just about anybody in the country. One
fella was in the service department of a Rowe Distributor for 26 years
and the other worked in engineering at the Rockola factory when it was
What's nice about
having these guys involved in the reconditioning is the extensive
education they've earned working on them "out in the field"
for years. They've learned improvements and "tricks"
no service manual can ever show you.
manuals are written while a jukebox is being manufactured. Only after
it's out there working in bars and restaurants do the unexpected
problems pop up that the engineers might never have foreseen.)
So what do Rowe
and Rockola have to do with this reproduction of a Wurlitzer you ask?
Well here's the history as I know it: Glenn
Streeter had begun building his full size Wurlitzer reproduction
jukeboxes in Los Angeles back around 1982 with his company ANTIQUE
APPARATUS. His craftsmanship with wood was not to be
denied. He was and is good with woodworking.
About ten years
into building full size jukes he began building reproductions of
Wurlitzer counter top jukeboxes playing vinyl 45s with Rowe
The CD-91 was the
third in the series and it too had Rowe components in it; but this one
plays CDs. One Hundred CDs in fact! As it came to be, Rowe
made the most dependable CD mechanisms on the market which it
dominated in America until the advent of "downloading"
This little jewel
is relatively amazing in that it is a "complete" jukebox
with powerful 180 watt amplifier, graphic equalizer and stereo
speakers on the front door. It even has RCA phono line-out jacks
from the CD player to tie in with your existing stereo system and also
jacks to connect external speakers.
The CD-91 cabinet
is quality crafted from hardwoods and finished with walnut and
satinwood veneer. This is what ANTIQUE APPARATUS is famous for.
With it comes a
deluxe, fully programmable, Infrared wire-less remote control that
allows you to mute, cancel, adjust the volume and actually make
selections from your easy chair. Rare!
Although the CD-91
has its own stereo speakers, we thought to make this package ever more
desirable we'd include the two external reproduction "Strike Up
the Band" speakers (model RS 1800) shown with it.
Made by ANTIQUE
APPARATUS and fashioned after the ones Wurlitzer offered (model 39)
with their jukeboxes from 1939 to 1941. These beauties are hand made
of bent wood and covered with walnut and satinwood. They have large
12” speakers inside. They light up. They are extremely rare.
I know you're
wondering about the bottom section that has a Wurlitzer decal on it
and looks like a stand. Well it is. It's a reproduction of
the base Model 710 made especially to hold the "71" back in
1940-41. This ANTIQUE APPARATUS reproduction base is flawless,
beautiful and sturdy. Crafted of fine woods, it has a shelf
inside that could easily hold all 100 CD jewel cases …. so you don't
lose track of 'em.
holding things, this set also includes the large (11x12), extremely
rare, authentic ROCKOLA, vinyl covered album binder. It has
clear vinyl pockets to hold all the title cards for all 100 CDs.
Then next to each one of them is another pocket where you can insert
the picture insert from the CD's jewel case.
We just acquired
both these units from their original owner who had them stored nearly
this entire time. They're practically "new". And
although the jukebox just lifts right off, we intend to sell all the pieces
as a "set".
No matter where
this "set" is placed, it will glow softly, play perfectly
and draw humans to it like a moth to a flame.
As rare as the
jukebox is alone, finding all these rarer pieces at one time in one
purchase together would be nearly impossible today. In 43 years
in the business, I've never even seen most of these products in
It could take
years to find and purchase all these wonderful musical toys, but here
they are right now available to you. Is there someone you know
who thinks he or she has everything? Well here ya go; prove 'em
