The decorative harpsichord uses the crafts.music.instruments.keyboard skill when played, or used to perform a solo or serenade. However, it uses the crafts.music.instruments.stringed skill when strummed. It can give tms in both skills, depending on the command used.

Description

Made with a light wooden frame and painted with a beautiful pastoral scene, this triangular harpsichord would make a decorative addition to any home. A series of strings stretch horizontally in the frame and are plucked, when the black and white keys are hit, by a special coupler and jack mechanism.
