Harpsichord hire from 1685

Here at 1685, we have a beautiful, recently restored Flemish harpsichord made by Roger Palmer in 1981. Ideal for continuo playing, and perfect for small orchestral concerts and choral societies, available to hire now.


We offer a complete service, including delivery, tuning and emergency repairs, at extremely competitive rates. The instrument can be hired alone, or for an additional cost, with a player experienced in reading figured bass and continuo playing.

You'll be able to listen to the instrument here soon, and use the 'contact' page to enquire about hire fees.
