SILBERMANN 1775 (© M. CHIARAMIDA 2015)
The instrument is kept in the Germanisches Nationalmuseum under inventory no. MIR 1061. It is attributed to the manufacturer Johann Heinrich Silbermann, and is dated 1775.
It is part of a group of five instruments that are all attributed to the same manufacturer, owing to the fact that they have very similar characteristics:
1. unfretted instrument
2. keyboard extension: FF-f3
3. measures set on an Anglo-Saxon unit of measurement
The Germanische Nationalmuseum produced the drawings on which the construction of the copy was based.
