ITALIAN SPINET

All the versions of this article: [Deutsch] [English] [français]

After to an anonymous model of the beginning of the 17th century

A very small and very light Italian spinet. This type of instrument has probably been very common in the first half of the 17th century in Italy since there are still many of them, often anonymous models.

To play you have to put it on a table - and if you have no space, the rest of the time you can hang it on the wall. The ideal instrument for travelling, weekends or holiday.
Its tone is typically Italian: sharp and brilliant, its touch is very light.
