  1. I just learned something new: a dual keyboard harpsichord.

    During college, I ran an antique elevator in a music store, and we occasionally got in stock and sold a Neupert harpsichord. It had a smaller range keyboard than a piano, and had only one keyboard.

    I am only guessing, but it looks like the purpose of playing this lower keyboard is to increase the volume of the harpsichord by having both keyboards play. Unlike a piano, striking the keys harder does not increase the volume.
