Description: Harpsichord, Clavichord - CLAVICHORD 53 FROM GERMANY

There are no pictures available for this harpsichord, clavichord

This Clavichord follows an instrument dated 1740 in the Gemeentemuseum, Den Haag, Netherlands.

It has a compass of C - e''' being enough for J.S.Bach's keyboard music and much else.
It is also double fretted, which interferes little with playing as no more than two adjacent notes share the same strings.
A double fretted instrument requires fewer strings for the same number of notes making tuning easier and reducing downward pressure on the bridge.
Combined with the light, positive keyboard action the result is an instrument which produces a clear tone capable of a wide dynamic range.

Solid brass tangents act on brass strings and the instrument can be tuned to either a=415 or a=440.

A cassette recording of music by Bach, Haydn, Howells and Bartok played on this clavichord by John Cramer is available on request.
