Description: Two hand dulcimers were built from a model by John Rückers of 1624, which is housed in the Unterlinden Museum (formerly owned by the de Sade family and kept at the Château de Condé, Condé-en-Brie).

The Flemish dulmer has a solid construction, a colorful tone with rich resonance. Flemish makers appear to have been the first to build two-manual harpsichords after 1600.
The Rückers workshop is credited with creating probably the most advanced harpsichords, and even today it is a benchmark for harpsichordists and harpsichord makers.
