Thread Name: Clavichord thread
Subject: RE: Clavichord thread
We had one - gave it to somebody who could make more use of it than I was ever going to. They have two problems: they are very quiet, and you need to retune them almost every time you play (and an electronic tuner won't do it, since they only make sense if you use meantone tuning). But there's no other instrument like it.
