The plucked strings of the harpsichord produce a bright, resonant sound. This harpsichord, including the keys, is constructed entirely out of wood, except for the strings (metal) and plectra (quills).
Each string/key has its own plectrum, or plucking material.
Historically, these were made of feather quills—usually crow or raven. Modern harpsichords mostly use plastic plectra.
