The action of this instrument is so simple and the path for the key to go so much shorter that even a beginner can play reasonably fast trills. The experts will moan that the ideal of "historically informed performance" (HIP, this is very much like PC = "political correct") is not to produce the fastest trills ever heard of, but I will nevertheless ask the clavichord mailing list and let you know the result. Best, Christian Kaernbach
