Fretted Clavichord after Hubert

This is a fretted instrument based on one made in 1784 by Christian Gottlob Hubert, which is in the Russell collection in Edinburgh. Hubert was an organ and clavichord maker who worked in Bayreuth and Ansbach. He made both fretted and unfretted instruments and they are all exceptionally well designed and made. The case and stand are made of walnut. The lid has veneered burr walnut panels, and the stand has turned and fluted legs. It is 132cm long. The compass of C to f''' makes it a useful instrument for most 18th century repertoire.
