The Clavichord

Manufactured by Harvey Shlick of Chicago, made in 1982, purchased in 1990.

Range: Great C with short octave (like the Italian Harpsichord but with no step key) to C3

Used primarily for domestic and private music making.  Not an ensemble instrument.

Strings made of brass.

Not as many strings and keys as a fretted clavichord.
