Flemish Single Manual

The Flemish single manual harpsichord is based on one by Andreas Ruckers, now in the Yale University Museum. It is a typical mid-17th century Flemish instrument with a compass of just over 4 octaves and 2 or 3 choirs of strings. The case is marbled on the outside, and decorated with traditional Flemish papers inside, and the soundboard is painted with flowers, butterflies and arabesques. It has a three-legged stand with turned legs, and a simple music desk.

This is a versatile harpsichord which can be adapted in a variety of ways, and is small enough to be portable.
