RWC Harpsichords
In considering the design for a versatile new harpsichord we consulted the late John Barnes, formerly curator of the Russell Collection of Harpsichords, University of Edinburgh.

We decided against the Italian brass-scaled instruments and their early 18th century derivatives in favour of the followers of Ruckers, whose harpsichords tend to be richer in sound.

As we wanted the full 18th century compass it seemed perverse to set about enlarging a Ruckers when a number of 18th century makers of high reputation had already done it to the complete satisfaction of their own customers. Bellot or one of the presently fashionable German 18th century makers were also possible but the ideal maker from several points of view was Delin.

Apart from five spinets, his surviving instruments consist of five harpsichords all single manual with two unisons. They were obviously his well considered speciality and the case bracing was an improvement on Ruckers. His soundboard was designed for two unisons unlike Ruckers who always had the compromise of an octave bridge. Otherwise he had retained all the features which had given Ruckers their great reputation.

In all our harpsichords, the highest quality materials are used throughout: 'Swiss' pine for the soundboard, beech for the jacks, holly for the tongues, and poplar for the casework.

Single manual harpsichords. You can choose among three dispositions, all of them having buff stop, 59 notes, GG - f'''. Size: length 220cm, width 91cm, depth 25cm:

Single manual 2 x 8'
Single manual 8' + 4'
Single manual 2 x 8' + 4'

Double manual harpsichord. Disposition: 2 x 8' + 4', buff stop, 59 notes, GG - f'''. Size: length 235cm, width 91cm, depth 25cm.

The standard version of the double manual has a straight stand and plain decoration similar to pictures of the single manual. The baroque curved leg stand and high level of decoration shown in the picture above was requested by a customer as a special order.

Each customer can choose the degree of decoration for the finished instrument. Our standard specification is to leave the soundboard plain and the casework primed and painted in a single colour. If required we can arrange for a soundboard or lid painting to be executed in the style of your choice.

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 padded transportation cover is available as optional extras for safe transportation if required.

Harpsichord Kits
The same instrument is offered in kit form for home assembly. Our Delin Harpsichord Kits are ones of the finest kits we have produced to date.

As in the finished, only the highest quality materials are used throughout.

Everything you need to complete the instrument is included: plectra, tuning pins, balance pins, hitch pins, bridge and nut pins, brass stringing and tuning lever.

The cleverly designed folding music desk, the stand, and the soundboard painting set are available as extra kits which provide all the parts to build those accessories as shown in the picture of our single manual instrument above.

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.

All the versions can be supplied with the casework in two different levels of assembly.

Our standard arrangement is case assembled.
The flat-packed version of our Delin Harpsichord Kits offers the more competent woodworker the opportunity to save money and have the added enjoyment of building the casework from scratch. The casework is supplied as flat boards BUT the bentside is still supplied pre-bent for ease and accuracy of assembly. All boards have mouldings cut as per original pattern. All the other components for the kits remains the same.


Harpsichord - Gregori 2 x 8'
The Renaissance Workshop Company Ltd are currently developing an single manual Italian model harpsichord based on a Gregori original. Our 'Gregori' harpsichord includes lid, music desk and stand. It has a solid pine soundboard, lime keys, wooden jacks, cedar linings and mouldings and walnut westplank capping. All the casework parts lid, baseboard, braces and wrestplank are cut from top quality birch ply and supplied flat packed, including the bentside which is cleverly machined to automatically produce the correct curvature during assembly of the casework. Computer controlled machining of all the parts ensures accuracy and ease of assembly.

The original brass scaling was used to provide an extended compass of GG-f''' (a=415/440/466).
