Description


Something different of the models I use to create. But as difficult as a car, a truck or an aircraft. I hope you will enjoy. Full size, if you want to see the details : 1200x4800 px Of course, if I am a good enough modeler, I am the worst "rendering man" of the Earth. I am waiting now for the superb renders that Mike ( Maxidyne ) will make in the next weeks! Soon available as a prop for Poser and DazStudio on RR. The Rudolph Wurlitzer Company, usually referred to as simply Wurlitzer, is an American company started in Cincinnati in 1853 by German immigrant (Franz) Rudolph Wurlitzer. The company initially imported stringed, woodwind and brass instruments from Germany for resale in the U.S. In 1880, the company began manufacturing pianos and eventually relocated to North Tonawanda, New York and quickly expanded to make band organs, orchestrions, nickelodeons and pipe or theatre organs popular in theatres during the days of silent movies. Over time, Wurlitzer acquired a number of other companies which made a variety of loosely related products including kitchen appliances, carnival rides, player piano rolls, and radios. Wurlitzer also operated a chain of retail stores where the company's products were sold. As technology evolved, Wurlitzer began producing electric pianos, electronic organs, and jukeboxes and eventually became known more for jukeboxes and vending machines, which are still made by Wurlitzer, rather than for musical instruments. The Wurlitzer 1015 became a big hit in 1946. Wurlitzer had to call a halt to the production of Jukeboxes due to the war in order to produce important war products such as radar components. The engineers, especially designer Paul Fuller, had continued to work on new Jukebox models over this period. The result was called the “1015”. Between 1946 and 1947, 56,000 of these machines were built and sold in just 18 months. The exceptional design of the “1015” had made it possibly the most attractive Jukebox of all time. In all events, it was sold more than any other model in the 20th century. The “golden era” of the Jukebox continued into the first post war years. With the use of rotating lights, art deco styled cabinets, and bubble tubes, Wurlitzer models were works of art. No jukebox before it was as beautiful, and none since has been as popular. The company stoked the public’s appetite with the largest promotional campaign in the industry’s history, including napkins, coasters, decals, and billboards. The success of the 1015 ushered in a great postwar boom in the juke business; the number of boxes soared from four hundred thousand just after the war to a high of about seven hundred thousand in the fifties. The New York dealer John Johnston describes the 1015 as the “most animated” jukebox ever made, and indeed, even when it wasn’t playing, the long bubble tubes made the machine seem to move. (These may have been Fuller’s greatest touch. The tubes were filled with a chemical selected for its low boiling point, and small heaters were attached at the bottoms.) By 1940 Americans were dropping five million nickels a day into the nation’s 250,000 jukeboxes, which were located not just in bars and diners but, according to Nation’s Business magazine, “bus stations, beauty parlors, airport waiting rooms, rest rooms, hotel lobbies, passenger liners and excursion boats.” By February 1946 the New York Daily News would grouse: “There is no such thing as a quiet saloon or eatery, these days, because of a loud and garish cabinet that stands in the corner. This is the juke box. It has made every beanery a poor man’s night club.”
