Edelan 6061 all-aluminum clavichord by Dale Reynolds

Houston designer Dale Reynolds introduces us to his latest creation … an all-aluminum clavichord! It's an updated version of the once-popular keyboard instrument of the 17th and 18th centuries, and we get a demonstration of how this metallic model sounds through pieces by Bach and Mozart played by Elizabeth Chitwood.

St.John Flynn gets together in the studio with Dale Reynolds, “father” of the 6061 Clavichord, and pianist Elizabeth Chitwood.
