“The firm of Robert Goble and Son, based in Oxford, have for 60 years produced individually built harpsichords, clavichords and spinets for players and institutions all over the world. Our wide range of models is the result of study of the 17th and 18th century harpsichords in the museums and collections where they are preserved.
Great care is taken in the choice of traditional timbers and stringing materials in order to approach as closely as possible the tone quality of the original instrument. The decoration and colour of the examples illustrated can be altered to suit individual requirements, and further options can be provided, such as painted soundboards, alternative key coverings, marquetry and inlaid decoration.
Visitors are welcome to the workshop where these details can be discussed; also a wide range of harpsichords may be played in our showroom. We are pleased to undertake further individual commissions on request.“
