- Polygonal spinet after Dominicus Pisaurensis (1540) with reduced compass C/E – c''', 8', with brass strings, pitch a'=440 Hz. The thin-walled instrument is of cypress with elaborate mouldings and is inserted into an outer case. It weighs only 8,4 kg (without case) and can therefore be easily transported. Due to its full, rich sound it can also be used as a continuo instrument.
