Hi erard1840, personally I don't know much about historical instruments, but the other day I was trying to find a haydn sonata and came across a web page that had midi and mp3 examples of these historical keyboards. There was a 1854 London Erard Grand and it looked really elegant, and sounded very unique. There were also some hammered Dulcimers, Double Manual Harpsichords, square pianos, and old grands. You might want to have a look at another thread in "instruments" talking about playing on historical instruments, maybe some members have some further info and would like to chat to you about it.
