Single manual Italian harpsichord
Date added: 2018-09-18
Made by by Gianfranco Facchini, Lugo (RA), Italy, 1999
The keyboard has extension fa1 - re6, with full short octave (fa1 - sol - la - si - do2 - do # - re - mib - mi - fa), and three octaves with broken enharmonic keys mib / re # and sol # / lab .
The registers are two eight feet (2 x 8 '), each equipped with an elegant insertion knob on the right side, 415 hz diapason, Malcolm Rose cords, black delrin pens.
The harpsichord is kept regularly tuned in meantonic temperament.
The external measures of the case are 245 x 95 cm, while the instrument measures 237 x 86.5 cm.
The instrument has frames decorated with bone studs, is removable from the case and can be placed and played on a tripod support (not included).
The decoration of the case with oil figures of cherubs and garlands on gold leaf was painted by the painter Elisabetta Lanzoni, on the model of the sixteenth-eighteenth-century harpsichords of the Museum of Instruments in Rome.
The instrument is equipped with a set of replacement black keys, to replace the broken ones to arrange, even if only occasionally, a normal chromatic keyboard.
The instrument is in excellent condition, perfect in mechanics and sound, and is equipped with a complete set of carrying bags in padded and waterproof cordura.
