German Harpsichords

German instruments have become popular over the last 10 years, but the definition of what constitutes a German instrument is a little vague, since Germany as a country did not exist during the Baroque period. The difference can vary from the large double manual instruments with four and more stops, being produced by Haas in the north, to single manual instruments with a short scale strung in brass wire, such as many found in the south. These short scale instruments approach the tone and crispness of an Italian harpsichord.
