Comments?   The instrument requested certainly will _NOT_ fulfil the player's needs!   Firstly, the design is such that it will be neither stable as to tuning, nor will it be "aggressive" - i.e. the sound will not carry at all well!   Additionally, the thing will weigh 400 lbs or more, and trying to keep it regulated will be a nightmare. If it is an old one, (and probably will be!) it probably has leather plectra which are at the end of their useful life, so it will probably need all new plectra, which in itself can be a real problem. The kind of hard ladies shoe-leather, common 25 years ago is practcally unheard of now, and in any case there are few technicians who know how to use it any longer - and don't want to anyway! So the alternative, Delrin or Celcon will have to be used, which means that all the old leathers have to be cut off flush and the tongues re-punched for Delrin/Celcon. What a pain! That's 244 jacks, or 305 jacks if it has a lute stop. Ugh!   All in all, not a very satisfactory idea!   Best!   Redstone   Peter Redstone, Harpsichord and Fortepiano Maker, P.O.Box 75, Claremont, VA 23899 USA (757)866-8477 http://www.redstoneharpsichords.com   ------=3D_NextPart_001_0001_01C0F9DC.3EECC6C0 Content-Type: text/html; charset=3D"iso-8859-1" Content-Transfer-Encoding: quoted-printable   <HTML><BODY STYLE=3D3D"font:10pt verdana; border:none;"><DIV>Another = messag=3D e forwarded (did you see that, JW?&nbsp; FORWARDED!!) from the = Harpsichor=3D d list.&nbsp; </DIV> <DIV>&nbsp;</DIV> <BLOCKQUOTE = style=3D3D"PADDING-RIGHT=3D : 0px; PADDING-LEFT: 5px; MARGIN-LEFT: 5px; BORDER-LEFT: #000000 2px = soli=3D d; MARGIN-RIGHT: 0px"> <DIV style=3D3D"FONT: 10pt Arial">----- Original = Mes=3D sage -----</DIV> <DIV style=3D3D"BACKGROUND: #e4e4e4; FONT: 10pt Arial; = COL=3D OR: black"><B>From:</B> Peter W.Redstone</DIV> <DIV style=3D3D"FONT: 10pt = A=3D rial"><B>Sent:</B> Wednesday, June 20, 2001 6:54 PM</DIV> <DIV = style=3D3D"F=3D ONT: 10pt Arial"><B>To:</B> HPSCHD-L@listserv.albany.edu</DIV> <DIV = style=3D =3D3D"FONT: 10pt Arial"><B>Subject:</B> Re: Fw: harpsichord donation = (X-pos=3D ted)</DIV> <DIV>&nbsp;</DIV>Hi folks!
