STORIA : The 1738 Vater.
Replacing feather plectra on a original harpsichord by Antoine Vater (1738). This work was done in preparation for a recording done by Brigitte Tramier of works by Jacques Duphly, a CD that won a number of 'Diapasons d'Or'. Duphly was a friend of Vater, as testified by the piece 'La de Vatre' dans le 2° livre. The instrument was kindly lent by Michael Thomas. During its revisions I took as many measurements as possible and made a copy, now in Spain
