Description: Harpsichord, Clavichord - After an anonymous English harpsichord of c. 1720
After an anonymous English instrument of c. 1720: the erroneously attributed Ham House “Ruckers”.
2 Keyboards, 5 octaves (FF/GG – f3), 884, buff stop, built in 1997 by Philip Stewart in Scotland. In contrast to many harpsichords, which have short narrow keys, (which pianists find awkward to play) the key dimensions here are fairly close to a piano. This instrument is, therefore, ideal for a pianist or organist! Splendid stand with 6 turned legs. Reverse keyboards; ebony naturals with bone-topped walnut sharps, double transposer. The harpsichord has not been painted. Dimensions: 221cm long, 96.5cm wide, 96cm high. Very reasonable price: euro 6.500 Photographs are available by e-mail. The instrument can be seen and played in Amsterdam, Holland.
