This wonderful, slim shaped small Clavicytherium is based on 15th century's late Gothic period tradition. Design and construction has been inspired by the oldest existing stringed keyboard instrument, built about 1480 in the city of Ulm (South Germany). This early clavicytherium nowadays is exhibited in the London Museum.
Due to a comparable small number of strings, but although a wide ambitus tone range of more than two octaves our clavicytherium offers a wide tone range and many musical possibilities, at a very low weight.
