Build Harpsichords

All actions parts used in my instruments are made by me. I use Swiss Pearwood, Beech, or Walnut for the jacks of Harpsichords, with Holly tongues, Boar bristle springs and Delrin plectra. Similarly, actions parts for Fortepianos are of the same materials. For soundboards, I use Sitka Spruce or Swiss Pine. The only glue I will use is ground hide glue, which has shown over the years to be superior over modern equivalents, especially in terms of acoustic properties.

Welcome to the home page of Maurici Harpsichord, where I build Harpsichords, Clavichords and Fortepianos.

My instruments are owned by Early Music groups and private individuals  worldwide. Following is a list of Institutions that own my works.
