Clavichord

Postby jwillans » Sat Sep 02, 2017 5:14 am

I appreciate this is border-line related to HW, but I know there are many baroque / renaissance music fans among our community so I thought I would offer here my beautifully made four and a half octave clavichord built by its previous owner in 1961 from a kit. Currently this is tuned to A 415 (baroque pitch) but will easily tune to concert pitch and holds tuning for weeks at a stretch and plays wonderfully. The clavichord comes with:

* solid wood stand in same finish as the main case
* tuning key
* box of spares and tools including felt and a block for setting up new strings
* box of spare strings of all relevant grades for re-stringing
* the original kit instruction book
* the original full-size plans

I am looking for a very reasonable £400 or near offer with collection near Sheffield, UK.
