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!

This is amazing. Helping a friend trying to come up with the same discontinued parts for a local chamber orchestra. I notice you have photos of the plectrum as well - is it 3D printed too? We are desperate to find a way to make replacements.
