Here at the Harpsichord Clearing House Gallery you can see, play and evaluate many of the best instruments in the country.

Located in Rehoboth, Massachusetts, about an hour south of Boston, and four hours from New York City, our gallery and staff welcome you to spend the day, getting to know the fine points of instruments from different builders—side by side, both new and used.

Now in our 47th year of building and brokering, we regularly offer instruments by Dowd, Hubbard, Zuckermann, Herz, Martin, Kingston, Hill, Ross, Klinkhamer, Fisk, Bennett, Kaeser and many others. Here you will also find the more rarely seen work of builders such as Skowroneck, Belt, Challis, Dolmetsch and Goff—as well as an occasional antique.

We are the foremost provider of continuo organs in North America offering the distinguished work of Henk Klop (Netherlands), David Leach (UK) and John Bennett (USA). A number of European builders also use our gallery and expertise to show their instruments, giving you an opportunity to experience exciting examples of both national and international styles of the historical keyboard world. Our technical staff is second to none.

Prices and description are subject to change based on evaluation and work in progress.
We list all of our Gallery instruments below, that may be viewed in our Rehoboth, MA showroom.
You will also find the Gallery instruments on our Complete List, marked with the letters "HCH".
