BAROQUES -- Library
of Stringing Schedules
- Claviers Baroques Canadian single "Althea" harpsichord
- Althea "Vanilla" -- GG/BB to d''' (52 notes) A=440,
but can be de-tuned to A=415, also short octave bass may be re-tuned
- Dedicated Althea at A=415 (ie, does not transpose and cannot be tuned up to 440 without breaking
a lot of strings), with chromatic bass.
- French and French-style harpsichords, including Franco-Flemish
- Flemish and Flemish-style harpsichords
- Italian and Italian-style harpsichords
- Revival and modern harpsichords
- Zuckermann "Z-box" and similar -- both 'classic' using the wire provided in the original kits and a revised schedule which uses the soft iron harpsichord wire now available. Soft iron comes to pitch at lower tension which gives
a nicer tone and longer sustain. The reduced tension on the soundboard often results in more volume, too.
- McGee -- similar to Z-box but with split bridge, originally designed for steel wire.
- Sperrhake 8" & 4"
- Sperrhake spinet
- Alec Hodsdon unfretted clavichord
1962 (as restrung by Claviers Baroques in 2001)
- Original "Bermudo" monochordium, Nelly van Ree Bernard's schedule
for double strung at high pitch
- Single-strung "Bermudo"
monochordium, Claviers Baroques' modification for single strung at modern
- Zuckermann 5-octave unfretted clavichord, 'new style'.
