    I’m looking for any recommendation if anyone has, for a good manual on harpsichord regulation and voicing. Harpsichords seem to be falling my way, and I am finding it more interesting to learn about them than coming up with excuses of why I don’t work on them.

    Also consider joining some Facebook harpsichord groups.

    Fred Sturm sent me some materials he had developed that I consider invaluable. I encourage you to contact him.

    An unusual source is the Facebook group "Revival Harpsichords."
    These folks collect and repair English and German harpsichords of non-historic 20th century design, and can offer advice and experience that can't generally be found anywhere else. They love their Sperrhakes and Sabathils.
    Be nice to them and they will be very helpful.
