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.
