Flemish single Harpsichord Ruckers by The Paris Workshop

Instrument supplied in kit form for home assembly.

Our Ruckers Flemish Single Harpsichord has many benefits. It is relatively small, light and easy to move. Its tuning is stable, and the transposing keyboard permits performance with either baroque or modern instruments.

We can deliver either the traditional Flemish disposition of 8' + 4', or two unison registers 8'. This style was mostly the result of later builders enlarging the earlier instruments to make them correspond to the demands of the 18th-century.

The Ruckers Single is also available with the 2 x 8', 1 x 4' disposition, making it a little more challenging to build and giving it the same soundboard layout, in fact, as the Ruckers Double.

The photograph shows the Ruckers Single with the optional traditional bone keyboard.
