Dimensions (wooden/metal pipes):
This portative organ, developed after a small painting showing F. Landini (Squarcialupi-Codex), offers all the possibilities of a professional instrument:
Wide, close to fully chromatic range of tones of more than 2 octaves; powerful-dynamic sound, made for expressive play and fascinating sound effects.
All the above features with minimal weight and high mechanical stability at the same time.
All keys can be individually (also several at once) stopped as drones by means of adjustable drone levers.
Wooden pipes are made of cedar with cherry front, and metal pipes are made of a tin/lead alloy. Powerful, full sound rich in overtones.; Tuning sleeves made of parchment; other materials upon request. Pitch: a=440Hz (or as desired; for more information please email me).
For a quick and easy transposition, e.g. 440 Hz - 466 Hz, you can get a "transposing keyboard" as an option.
The keys (either a piano-type or a button-type keyboard is available) are made of selected fruit-tree wood and maple.
The large bellows is made of white sheepskin, cherry and maple.
