Mankind’s knowledge that ‘a taut, vibrating string can produce sound’ goes back to prehistoric times. In the ancient world, strings were attached and stretched over bows, gourds, and boxes to amplify the sound; they were fastened by ties, pegs and pins; and they were plucked, bowed or struck to produce sounds. Eventually, a family of stringed instruments with a keyboard evolved in Europe in the 14th century. The earliest of these was a dulcimer, a closed, shallow box over which stretched wires were struck with two wooden hammers. The dulcimer led to the development of the clavichord, which also appeared in the 14th century. And finally, the harpsichord followed these in the 15th century.Despite many improvements during the past 300 years, it is truly astonishing to observe how similar the modern pianos of today are to these vintage designs. For a music lover, this is something that will perfectly suit the mood of your personal space.
