What are you looking for? For other harpsichord models please contact me or my father Ugo Casiglia. Thank you!
This is my first harpsichord built in 2017: Its name is Primus. My father Ugo Casiglia helped me to build a suitable instrument for Students. He did the the technical drawing and he gave me all means to build a simple and fine harpsichord. This instrument is without any decorations (it has elegant decorative lines though) and this has an advantage for students to afford a non-decorated but practical Harpsichord. Excellent quality of materials and attention to details are the advantages of this harpsichord. Contact me by mail for details, thank you.
