Harpsichord by Michael Cole, 1990.

Commissioned by David Walters (organ & harpsichord hire) and used in many concerts and recordings. It was made to David's specification — keyboard GG to d3 chromatic, transposing facility baroque pitch or A=440, lightweight and easy to transport. It was damaged about six years ago, but has been thoroughly repaired by Michael Cole. The block registers have been converted to upper and lower.
