Harpsichord Building

As the forerunner of the modern piano the harpsichord is most often built today by independent makers in small workshops. There are various styles sizes and note-range compasses possible for these instruments. Some of the steps in building a new instrument are shown in the slide show above.

It is also possible to build from kits in which ready-made parts are supplied.  Each instrument is unique and may be decorated to suit the buyer's personal taste. The 17th century Flemish- style instrument in the slide show is currently being built in our workshop.
