|The Delin Spinet
has been slightly modified from the original specification to
provide a 56-note keyboard (GG-d, fully chromatic) which allows
transposition to A440 without loss of the top note.
The ease of construction and the low price assist the first-time builder, and for a player beginning to explore the fascinating world of early keyboards, here is an instrument with a good tone, pleasant touch, and a keyboard compass sufficient for more than 90% of the repertoire.
|The Delin Spinet was inspired by an original dated 1770. It was built by Albertus Delin in Tournai and now preserved in the Brussels Musical Instrument Museum.|
