STUDIO harpsichord

STUDIO Harpsichord, double


In order to reach a wider range of clientele, I have been planning and making a simpler harpsichord for a few years now, which is absolutely perfect for a student, but also absolutely suitable for concerts.

These instruments, a Spinet, and a Harpsichords with single and double manuals, I have called STUDIO. The price is affordable for many people, so that a possibly long cherished, beautiful dream can be fulfilled with it.

The STUDIO harpsichord is inspired by a Flemish harpsichord by J. Ruckers (Antwerp, 1638), preserving its main structural and acoustic characteristics. Some decorative elements have been eliminated.

The parts responsible for the production of sound (soundboard, bridges) and for the action (jacks, keyboard, registers) are in solid wood (spruce, beech, service wood) and are identical to those used in the more advanced models.

The instrument is available in the following versions:
one keyboard, two registers 8′ 8′, lute
two keyboards, three registers 8′ 8′ 4´, lute

Personalized decoration is available upon request.

  • Dimensions: cm 226 x 93 x 32
  • Double cm 240 x 93 x 32
  • Weight: Kg 55 / Double Kg 63
  • Compass: FF-f3 (61 notes)
