Replacement jacks for a 1970 Goble harpsichord
by Cassan, published
These things replace the jacks in Goble harpsichords (1970 model). Being plastic, and made over 40 years ago, they may have become brittle or broken, and are otherwise irreplaceable these days. Mine had!
First check your harpsichord is a Robert Goble made around 1970. Otherwise they will not fit.
Next acquire some tongues, plectra and adjustment screws from Hubbard Harpsichords http://www.hubharp.com/ and some felt for the dampers.
Then print 61 of each jack and 183 damper clips. (75%, no raft nor support needed). Cut felt and glue it to the base of the dampers. Assemble each jack with a damper, a tongue, screws, and a plectrum. Then restore your harpsichord and play Bach!
