Characteristics of the instruments
- The size of the pipes is reasonably large allowing for a strong harmonisation of the various stops without seeming forced. I believe its essential that an instrument destined to realising a basso continuo should have a good fundamental which this size of pipe allows.
- The arrangement of the pipes is designed for ease of access for the person tuning, rather than following the natural order on the wind chest. A complex system of routed wind channels engraved in the upper part of the wind chest allows for :
- The ability to quickly change temperaments
- To change overall pitch due to a sudden change of temperature
- To tune the organ, even if a harpsichord is placed on top for a double continuo.
The instruments are light and very manageable.
