The excitement . . . the enchantment ... of the 
Mighty Wurlitzer in a spinet organ ! To achieve this 
accomplishment, Wurlitzer engineers, acoustical 
experts and nuclear physicists conducted elabo- 
rate, highly technical research. They recorded and 
carefully analyzed the tone structure of various 
pipes of a Mighty Wurlitzer. Then they set out to 
recreate these rich, full, unforgettable sounds in 
a spinet electronic organ . . . the Wurlitzer 4300. 
The result is sheer magic. 

EXCLUSIVE ALL-TRAWSISTOR 

TONE GENERATING SYSTEM 

To assure precise tone, the tone generating system 
of the Wurlitzer 4300 employs silicon transistors, 
the type until now found only in missiles and simi- 
lar government projects. Thorough testing proved 
them to be unaffected by humidity or temperature 
variations. The most reliable, longest lasting tran- 
sistors ever marketed, they'll give you ultimate de- 
pendability. No warm-up needed . . . you can begin 
to play instantly. 

Another advantage of these tone generators is their 
small size, permitting a larger acoustic tone chamber. 
They also make possible a less complex organ de- 
sign that assures maximum reliability. 

The Wurlitzer exclusive tone generating system 
authentically produces the four basic families of 
organ tone ; String, Flute, Reed and Diapason, plus 
orchestral voices. The flute tones are smooth and 
mellov/v. The string tones soar and sing. The reed 
tones are vibrant, penetrating. Diapason, the church 
organ sound' has a richness and fullness of tone all 

bination, produce a multitude of other voices and 
orchestral effects. 

For over half a century, the sound of the Mighty 
Wurlitzer has been famous throughout the world 
. . . the new Wurlitzer 4300 spinet organ leaves no 
doubt why. Never before has such magnificent 
sound . . . such fullness of tone . . . been available 
n a spinet organ. The Wurlitzer 4300 brings right 
into your home the excitement of the famed Mighty 
Wurlitzer theater organ, the grandeur of the cathe- 
drat organ, the brilliance of the jazz organ, the 
refinement of the classical organ, theappeal of the 
popular organ . . .TOTAL TONE. To believe it, you 
have to see it . . . hear it . . . play it. 




Recording the sounds of the Mighty Wurlitzer was 
the first step in tonal research for the new 4300. 



Three-dimensiona! models of sound waves are 
constructed to permit the research staff to see 
what the oar hears. 



Another step was checking the wave form shap- 
ing network. Having simulated a voice of the 
Mighty Wurlitzer for the 4300 electronic spinet 
organ, an acoustical engineer measures the accu- 
racy of the wave form. 



One of the many tests made in checking tone was 
conducted in an anechoic chamber, where experts 
checked the authenticity of the sound oi the 4300 
compared to that of the Mighty Wurlitzer.
