    Instruments Wanted

    Replacement keyboard wanted. If you happen to have a keyboard you no longer use and would like to donate to Sarasa, we would be so grateful to put it to good use! There are a few requirements from our keyboard players that would make their/our lives easier: full 88 keys, weighted key, damper pedal, transposing, harpsichord sound, portable! Contact the Sarasa Ensemble for more info.

    Colascione wanted, new or used. 4, 5 or 6 strings, 75-90cm mensure. willard.morris@ayreheart.com

    Good prices paid for Cronin alto shawms in good condition. Robert Cronin, rhcronin@att.net

    I'm seeking charitable donations of musical instruments in playable condition suitable for Renaissance and Baroque music performance. I am a faculty member at Wyoming Catholic College, a private four-year liberal arts college now beginning its fourth academic year. We have a lot of talent in our student body but, because we are so new, we lack discretionary funds to support our students' interest in musical performance. If you have a playable instrument gathering dust and would like to send it to a good home where it will be played often and will help introduce young people to Renaissance and Baroque music, please contact me, Dr. Nancy E. Llewellyn, at nancy.llewellyn@wyomingcatholiccollege.com. You can count on receiving our eternal gratitude plus a letter you can use for tax-deduction purposes. Thank you!

    Zuckermann French Harpsichord built in 1976 by Katherine Roberts Perl, a San Franciscobased harpsichordist and technician. It is a double manual Zuckermann 18th century French model with a rich, dark sound suited to an extensive repertoire, ranging from early 17th century music to the latest Scarlatti and French composers. There are two 8 foots, a 4 foot and a lute stop. The range is FF g’’’. The harpsichord was fully redone in 2004 by Kevin Fryer, including requilling, restringing and making the instrument transposing 415/440. Wooden jacks were also installed by Janine Johnson in the mid 1990’s. The soundboard is decorated with a floral design and there is a decorative rose. A new stand was added as well in 2004. Dimensions are approximate, I can provide exact ones upon request. A music desk, bench and travel cover come with the purchase. It is currently located in Berkeley, CA and is available for showing. The asking price is $12,000.

    I used this instrument for seven great years of harpsichord studies and concerts before going abroad a few years ago to study in Paris and at the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis. It is sitting silent now and I would like it to be played regularly again and be enjoyed by someone on a daily basis. You can hear the instrument recorded in concert here: http://youtu.be/22wE6WFzCuM. Contact: lilliangordis@yahoo.com

These pipes need new reeds, which aren't expensive or too hard to make, if you're a crafty reed person, and I can put you in contact with the original maker.
