TPW Double Fretted Clavichord with 51 notes: C-d''', A415, double strung
The clavichord is without doubt the most expressive keyboard instrument and this Double-fretted version would have to be one of the most delightful instruments to play.
The mechanism is very simple: The brass tangents are set in the ends of each key and strike the pairs of strings as well as determine their speaking length
The Double-fretted Clavichord shares strings throughout much of its compass, which makes it easier to tune and very portable
