Muselaar Harpsichord

This is an ancient model of harpsichord (circa 1650) based on Couchet and Ruckers models. I purchased all small parts separately and large pieces of wood to cut, as well. Then I crafted it carefully over one year and half, but the overall result and sound were worth it! If you want to know more about the process, you can download the pdf. You can also listen to some examples directly recorded by two condenser microphones in stereo:
