Harpsichord after Blanchet 1730
This harpsichord after Blanchet 1730, developed some serious trouble as the soundboard had warped. The 4' bridge needed to be planed down, as it was too high. I checked it with the dimensions given in William Dowd's book on the Blanchet instruments, and carefully worked it down to the proper dimensions.
