The Harpsichord Project E-Book

Over thirty years have past since I built my first harpsichord. Time has not dulled the memory of the frustration I felt when I searched, in vain, for some guidance and instruction. I was fortunate - I met and befriended a master harpsichord builder who became my mentor. Perhaps you are facing the same frustrations I did so long ago. If so, I think you'll find The Harpsichord Project e-book the answer to your dilemma.. In its over 1,000 pages, illustrations, photos, and videos, you'll find step by step instruction in the art of harpsichord building. Let me be your mentor - with you every step of the way as you build a beautiful Flemish single manual harpsichord. In fact, it's the same "Ruckers" instrument featured on the audio page of this site and pictured on the left.

I've created a new website devoted entirely to The Harpsichord Project e-book. If the possibility of building your own harpsichord appeals to you, then please click the link below and visit this website. You'll be able to download a Demo version which consists of the first six chapters of the e-book, complete and unabridged. These six chapters take you through the entire process of keyboard building and will give you a good idea of the thoroughness and attention to detail you'll find throughout its thirty eight chapters.
