Ruckers is the most famous name in the history of building harpsichords.

For three generations, from the end of the sixteenth to the middle of the seventeenth century, the Ruckers proved their high skilfulness building harpsichords in Antwerp and developed instruments that were to set tonal standards for centuries.

From more than 100 Ruckers instruments that have survived NEUPERT chose and reproduced a single manual harpsichord made by Andreas Ruckers (1579-1651) in 1637. Today this instrument belongs to the collection of musical instruments of the Germanisches Nationalmuseum Nürnberg (MIR 1073).

Starting from the harpsichord, which was in widely original state, NEUPERT developed a completely convincing concert harpsichord by adding a second manual with a second 8‘-register and by enlarging the keyboard to A1 - f3.

Its sound pattern reaching from delicate silvery sounds to sounds of full richness represents the typical merits of best Flemish harpsichord traditions and connects them with a comparatively small case which has the advantage of easy handling (total length 197 cm).
