Thinking of buying a harpsichord?

Please refer to our page detailing the differences between the revival and historic types of harpsichord.

Many of the questions probably going through your mind right now are answered in Kottick’s Harpsichord Owner’s Guide. The opening section of this book discusses the various forms and styles of harpsichords. Advice is then offered on purchasing decisions, and the remainder will prove useful after you own an instrument, with sections on maintenance, troubleshooting and tuning. ONLY ONE COPY REMAINING: $47 plus $13.20 p&p within Australia (including GST). We look forward to receiving your order.
