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 in building harpsichords in Antwerp and developed instruments that were to set tonal standards for centuries.
Even about 150 years later one could read in the "Encyclopédie" by Didérot and d'Alembert: "Referring to the beauty of sound the best harpsichords that have ever been built are the ones built by the three Ruckers (Hans, Ioannes, Andreas) ....".
Starting from the harpsichord, which was in widely original state, NEUPERT developed a completely convincing harpsichord by enlarging the keyboard to G1 - 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 187 cm).
