French Double

     Suave, elegant, and refined, the 18th century French Double Harpsichord is, for some, the high point in the evolution of the harpsichord.   Our instrument is based on the venerable 1769 Pascal Taskin in Edinburgh but set on a Louis XVI stand.  Decoration includes a full lid painting in the French or Flemish style, soundboard paintings, gilt case bands and mouldings, and all the appropriate gilding on the Louis XVI stand.  The keyboards have grenadilla naturals and bone-topped sharps.  FF - f''' chromatic, transposable A-415/A-440, 1 x 4', 2 x 8', buff stop.  Length 93", width 37".
