A harpsichord is a musical instrument played by means of a keyboard. This activates a row of levers that turn a trigger mechanism that plucks one or more strings with a small plectrum. The term denotes the whole family of similar plucked-keyboard instruments, including the smaller virginals, muselar, and spinet. The harpsichord was widely used in Renaissance and Baroque music. During the late 18th century, with the rise of the piano, it gradually disappeared from the musical scene.

The harpsichord was most probably invented in the late Middle Ages and seems to have been derived from the Psaltery, an ancient instrument still in use in the Medieval period. It had a set of strings stretched over a soundbox and plucked with plectra. There is some evidence that a keyboard, already known on contemporary organs, was added to the psaltery in around 1400. By the late 16th century more heavily built instruments were being developed in the Netherlands, they produced more tone with a distinctive sound. They included the first instruments with two keyboards. Notable builders from this period were the Ruckers family, active early 17th century, their instruments were highly prized and copied elsewhere. By the 18th century in France double keyboards were used to control different choirs of strings, this gave greater flexibility and a wider range of tone colours.
