Single manual French harpsichord
Single manual French harpsichord from the workshop of Knight Vernon, Harpsichord Maker.
This instrument is based on the work of Pascal Taskin. It has 2 unison stops at 8' pitch with a buff stop on the front 8'. The range is GG to e''' The jacks are made of pear wood with holly tongues and boar bristle springs. The instrument is voiced in Celcon.
Of special interest is that the two 8' registers are separated by a wooden, register blank where the 4' stop would be in a larger harpsichord. By doing this, the true sound of the French harpsichord can be heard with a more mellow back 8' and a front 8' richer in harmonics.
$15,000. Instrument located in Michigan. Contact the Zuckermann shop for more information: (860) 535-1715 or (888) 427-7723.
