TPW Flemish Double Harpsichord Kit after Ruckers - 56+1 notes GG-d''', transposable A392/A415/A440 without loss of d'''

The harpsichords built by the Ruckers family were famous throughout Europe in the 17th- and 18th-centuries, their clear and precise sound as much admired then as now.

This Ruckers Double's range of 56 notes covers all of Bach's works, and the clarity of tone suits his contrapuntal style. This is probably our most versatile instrument, easy to transport and useful for the whole body of early keyboard music. The kit includes a standard harpsichord stand. 

Disposition: 2x8', 1x4' buff. Range: 56+1 notes: GG-d'''

Transposable A392/A415/A440 without loss of d'''

Dimensions: length 237cm; width 94 cm; depth of case 28cm

Harpsichord Kit Options:

Version 2, casework assembled

Version 3, soundboard installed (with rose)
