Italian clavichord with two bridges designed and made by Franco Bandera in 1985 and renovated in 2010.
In this video I show two combinations to dampen the left side of the vibrating string:
1) with only the cloth (touch softer, more modulated, but more noisy)
2) with the addition of a table over the cloth (touch harder, less modulation but a bit louder).
Instrument with 22 pairs of strings in all brass, Scaling C 113.5, 227, 425.5, 765, 855 mm. spruce soundboard, walnut bridge, pitch 440 Hz,
music by Andrea Gabrieli, Intonationen: quinto tono and sesto tono.
Audio recording with Zoom H4 position 30 cm. from soundboard.
Thank you for your attention,
