Clavichord built by Dave

 

This is a Clavichord built by Dave in the early 1970's. It is from a kit by Zuckerman Harpsichords. It is an extremely quiet instrument, with a delicate touch and a soft, beautiful sound. The case is oiled walnut, and quite deep in color. This was Dave's first experience in building an instrument, and it was quite rewarding. Sadly, this instrument was dropped by the shipping company while enroute to its new owner several years ago and was severely damaged. Its whereabouts are currently unknown.
