Vater harpsichord

The "small" German instrument presented here has among its special features a very pleasing and functional touch. This makes it a highly suitable instrument for study and with its special sound strung entirely in brass, also renders it quite versatile for others repertoires. In addition to its painted case, this model can be crafted with exposed wood as request by the client.
It is also possible to have this instrument with two manuals which extends the sound and provides for greater versatility.
