About the Bizzi Bentside Spinet

This spinet has a gracious shape with a sweet and round sound, probably due to a particular position of the wrest plank bridge which gives this instrument a sort of “virginal” timbre.

The “Goujon 1753” is an ideal instrument for ensemble music both for its wide specific repertoire and for the important musical literature of the north European Countries.

Thanks to its good mechanical functioning and wide keyboard, this spinet is also recommendable for student who want to begin harpsichord studies.
