  RWC 8' Italian Cembalino  
  RWC 8' Italian Cembalino  

RWC Cembalino
Our cembalino is the fulfilment of an ambition we had for many years to design a harpsichord small enough to be truly portable. Whilst looking for a suitable model on which to base our instrument we contacted Denzil Wraight, the leading authority on Italian keyboard instruments. He suggested basing the design on the compact virginals of the 16th century maker Dominicus Pisaurensis but adapted as a small harpsichord. An interesting and exciting project followed, the result of which is a compact delightful little Italian harpsichord, small enough and light enough to be transportable in a car yet still capable of producing the sound of a full-size instrument. The extraordinarily bold sound surprises many and enables it to hold its place in an ensemble.

The casework is quarter sawn from close grained English sycamore, the baseboard is planked from tulipwood (American poplar), the soundboard is planked from selected Swiss pine, the keys are cut from lime with maple / rosewood covers and the beech jacks are fitted with holly tongues with delrin plectra.

Strung in hand drawn brass the single 8' is scaled to a 16th century virginals pattern. The Cembalino produces a fine clear Italianate sound and can be tuned to either a=415 or a=440. A transposing keyboard is not practicable on account of the short bottom octave.

The finished Cembalino includes a finished turned stand in the price.

Because Italian harpsichord builders almost universally built extremely light instruments they had to provide them with a strong outer case for transportation. Similarly we provide as an option a strong yet attractive carrying case for our cembalino.

Disposition: Single 8', 45 notes, CC/EE - c''' (short bottom octave). Size: 140cm long, 67cm wide, 17cm deep. Height of keyboard above the ground: 70cm.

Weight: Excluding case 14kg, including case 25kg.

Each instrument is hand built to special order by in house craftsmen in our own workshops in Toledo (Spain) and comes with 12 months warranty.

A simple hard carrying case is available as optional extras for safe transportation and there can be a considerable saving in shipping costs if the case is ordered with the instrument as everything can be packed into the case and sent in only one crate.

A cassette recording of music by Salvatore, De Macque and Mayone played on the cembalino by Christopher Stembridge is available.

Cembalino Kit
The same instrument is offered in kit form for home assembly.

In addition, you will find a turned stand and a music desk specially designed for it.

The price includes the license to build one instrument for private use.

A fully dimensioned plan and instruction manual take the builder through the construction of the instrument in a clear and concise manner, with 'step by step' photographs further illustrating each stage.

All the kits Include free access to our customer 'Helpline' should you need any advice on construction, setting-up or playing.

The Cembalino Kit is now supplied as solid timber throughout. Only the highest quality materials are used, 'Swiss' pine for the soundboard, tulipwood for the baseboard, beech for the jacks, holly for the tongues and English sycamore for the accurately mitred casework parts, music desk and finely cut mouldings.

Complete in every detail the kit includes, plectra, tuning pins, balance pins, hitch pins, bridge and nut pins, a set of brass stringing and a tuning lever. Even the parts to make a set of special clamps to secure the bentside have been provided.

Our Cembalino kit is ideal for the first time harpsichord builder.

The turned stand and the music desk are available as extra kits that provide all the parts to build the attractive stand and desk shown in the picture of our finished instrument.

Cut from matching English sycamore the legs and cross rail of the stand are turned to a high standard so the kit builder only has to final sand and polish. The attachment plates are planed with moulded edges whilst the feet are bandsawn to shape ready for hand finishing.

The stand can either be permanently assembled and carried separately from the instrument or left so that it can be taken apart to fit in the carrying case with the instrument.

A simple hard carrying case is available as optional extras for safe transportation and there can be a considerable saving in shipping costs if the case is ordered with the kit as everything can be packed into the case and sent in only one crate.
