This is a PROTO-TYPE CD BUBBLER, Cabinet made by ANTIQUE APPARATUS, components made by AMI/ROWE. This is a factory built jukebox and only a handful of these Proto-Types were produced in 1986.
CD Bubbler version of the most popular Jukebox of All-Time the '1946 WURLITZER model 1015' also known as 'THE BUBBLER'.
Comes with (8) bubbler tubes & (2) rotating barber pole lights in the 2 main lower plastic pilasters. The upper curved pilasters are the tri-color and are original. Puts out a beautiful color show. The original 1015 had (8) bubble-tubes & (2) barber pole lights.
This Bubbler was made 1986. Fully functional & plays/sounds great. Holds 100 cd's or cdr's (will not play mp3 data discs).
Cabinet is Walnut Veneer stained Early American Walnut & the front door is Curly Maple Veneer stained light Maple.
Castings are real metal/trim pieces that have been triple copper-nickle -chromed plated. Unlike the Wurlitzer OMT that has plastic/chromed trim pieces. Chrome on this Bubbler is nice.
During restoration: I refinished the cabinet as the finish was lack luster & oxidized. Cabinet & Veneer are in great condition. This is a beautiful jukebox with fantastic grain in the veneer.
This bubbler is in very nice condition.
