Italian Harpsichord Building


In 1978, I built my first harpsichord. It was an Italian Polygonal Virginal. This was the paper that I studied which helped me on my life long journey.

Extremely hard to find, but very informative. It has numerous diagrams and everything you need to make an Italian instrument. It covers both the Italian harpsichord and Virginal. It was based on the measurements of 33 instruments.

Great for any library!
