During the middle of the 18th century Johannes Daniel Dulcken was the most famous member of a Flemish family of distinguished harpsichord makers in Antwerp. Dulcken's harpsichords were constructed in poplar, the traditional case material, used by his Antwerp predecessors Ruckers. His harpsichords resemble 18th century French harpsichords but they were much longer. The sound is rich and powerful with a persistant, singing notes.
