Pleyel / Gaveau double -Landowska 1962

The sounds that some of us marveled at years ago and listened to over the years...  This beautifully maintained Landowska model Pleyel is immediately available in the Bay Area!

Pleyel / Gaveau - 1962 - Wanda Landowska specification double manual harpsichord,  61 notes, FF-f" at 440 HZ   Four sets of strings over two manuals controlled by 7 pedals: 16' 8' 8' 4' nasale register, buff stop, coupler.  92"  x 42"
It has a full voice to it and as such is an equal partner for modern instrument playing with  wonderful resonant tone.

Over the years this instrument has been rebuilt twice by the well respected Bjarne Dahl- in 1972 and then again in 2003 when he introduced new delrin jacks and plectra and lightened the action--a full rebuild.  It's last service was in 2010, and as you can hear and see from recording and photographs, the instrument is in remarkably good condition, and--in fact-- performance ready.  Located in San Francisco, CA. The owner truly wants a quick sale and will accept the  best offer over $7,500.  Please be in touch!
