Harpsichords & Clavichords

icon harpsichordsHarpsichords are short-scaled, brass-strung instruments usually having thin case sides (except for false inner-outer types) of cypress, cherry or maple.  They have an articulate attack that pops rather than swells from the soundboard.

Clavichords are small, light instruments with a much simpler mechanical action and make an ideal practice instrument due to their quiet sound.
