Harpsichord Owner's Guide: A Manual for Buyers and Owners

by

Harpsichord Owner's Guide: A Manual for Buyers and Owners Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Kottick presents technical information in an accessible, but entertaining, way: the forms and styles of harpsichords, advice on purchasing decisions, maintenance techniques (such as voicing, regulating, and changing strings, tongues, plectra, springs, and dampers), aids in troubleshooting common problems, and detailed instructions on tuning and temperment. As builder of some thirty keyboard instruments, Kottick is well qualified to speak on the subject.

Synopsis:

The revival of interest in harpsichords has motivated thousands of people to buy, build, and learn how to care for these instruments. Yet few have any idea how the harpsichord operates, how to keep it in good working order, how to make simple repairs, or how to tune it. Edward Kottick, an experienced harpsichord builder, offers the first practical guide to buying, repairing, and maintaining a harpsichord.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. [171]-175) and index.
