Double-fretted Clavichord 35K jpeg

The clavichord is without doubt the most expressive keyboard instrument, and our Double-fretted version would have to be one of the most delightful instruments to build and play.

The mechanism is very simple: The brass tangents are set in the ends of each key, and strike the pairs of strings as well as determine their speaking length

The Double-fretted Clavichord shares strings throughout much of its compass, which makes it easier to tune and very portable. A cabriole-leg stand is optional.
