French double Harpsichord Hemsch by The Paris Workshop

Instrument supplied in kit form for home assembly.

This instrument is made in the grand tradition of the large French harpsichords of the 18th-century. Inspired by the surviving instruments of Henri Hemsch, the tone of our French Double is full of color and nuance, with a majestic bass. While the range of 63 notes permits performance of virtually the entire harpsichord repertoire, this instrument is obviously the best choice for playing the late French music.

The photograph shows the optional elegant Louis XVI-style table stand.
