Flemish Harpsichord
after A. Ruckers, 1637 (Nuremburg)

This instrument is a “standard” Ruckers single with the original registration of
1 x 8’, 1 x 4’. The normal range, C/E-c''' has been extended to include the accidentals F# and G# and a top d’’’, somewhat in the manner of the Ruckers “English export” version.
