Not a single lautenwerck survived, but I was curious how it would sound, that I decided to build one, based on an italian harpsichord.

It has one 8´ register, the range C — d3 and no dampers. The tuning is very stable, the sound is more like a harp than a lute, and the sound carries very well.

We used it as solo instrument as well as continuo.
