The harpsichords built by the Ruckers family were famous throughout Europe in the 16th through the 18th centuries. Their clear and precise sound was as much admired then as now. The Flemish Double's range of 56 notes covers all of Bach's works, and its clarity of tone suits his contrapuntal style. This is probably one of the most versatile instruments, as it is easy to transport and useful for the entire body of early keyboard music.
