Kits from the Paris Workshop


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
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.
