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 & (4) rotating barber pole lights in th 4 main pilasters. Puts out a beautiful color show. The original 1015 had (8) bubble tubes but only (2) barber pole lights.
This Bubbler was made Jan 13, 1999 & was professionally restored. 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.
Casting are real metal/trim pieces that have been triple chromed plated. Unlike the Wurlitzer OMT that has plastic/chromed trim pieces. Chrome on this Bubbler is MINT!
Restoration is complete. All in All the early model CD8-B model Bubbler (like this one) in my opinion is a beautiful jukebox. As model years get newer many features of the cabinet were downgraded some to cut costs. In 2005 the quality of veneer was changed and the curly maple front door is not very curly. In late 2003 electrical components got smaller (yellow components), this effected amplifier/power supply life span as compared to the orange colored components which in my opinion last longer.
During restoration I replaced 3 of the main plastic pilasters, the 2 straight lower & 1 upper curve along w/ 2 bubble tubes. This model CD8-B will look as new as I can make it. It's simple stunning! I am going to upload a video of this Bubbler ASAP, link will be on this page.
I am currently restoring another 1999 model CD8-B along with a 2004 model CD8-C. Both should be avail by the end of September 2013

I can now upload many more images compared to my old site. Most images are landscape as they show up on this slideshow better than portrait. I plan on doing more close-ups. Just remember you will be seeing dust & a lot of glare sometimes. I'm just trying to show you the entire pin/juke.
