Does anyone know of anywhere in the Manchester area that sells Harpsichords? Preferably somewhere with a harpsichord showroom, as I would like to buy one but would like to try it first, therefore online shops are out of the question,
Thanks,
Carl

Harpsichords are not generally sold like pianos. New ones are often custom-made, and used ones only show up singly.

You might try this site. I found it through a Google search, which you might try, too.

It's not quite the Manchester area, but the Early Music Shop is just on the other side of the Pennines.

There is someone very near Manchester that should be able to help you out or point you in the right direction. Get in touch with harpsichord specialist Alex Temple, (0)161 7943717.

The British Harpsichord Society also lists instruments for sale, here is the link that has already been posted above:
