Fretted and Unfretted Clavichords
We have made a variety of fretted and unfretted clavichords. Please contact us for specifications.
Large Fretted Clavichord
We received a commission from Wesleyan University to make this large fretted clavichord scaled for Werckmeister III tuning having soundboard decoration and a custom turned stand. It is double strung in brass with a range of GG, AA-d'''. The case and stand are of American Cherry.
The Upright Clavichord
As shown at
With full decoration
We have built, what is in all likelihood, the only upright clavichord in existence. The idea of having the soundboard of a clavichord right there "in your face" was a fascinating concept to me, so I designed a clavichord to do just that. This instrument was introduced at the 1997 Boston Early Music Festival and Exhibition and was received with much enthusiasm.
"Of the new instruments I could not help being enthusiastic about the new
clavichord of Carl
GG/BB - d''', double strung in brass wire. Case: American Cherry. Doors at bottom left and right cover music storage compartments.
Since its introduction at the 1997 BEMFE, the instrument has received full soundboard paintings, a carved and gilt rose, and hand painted case decorations. It is now in a private collection.
