Harpsichords vary in size and shape, but they all have the same basic functional arrangement.
The string passes from the tuning peg over the nut, a sharp edge that is made of hardwood and is attached to the wrestplank. The player presses a key pivoted in the middle of its length, which causes the far end of the key to rise.
This lifts a jack, a long strip of wood, to which is attached a small plectrum (a wedge-shaped piece of quill or, nowadays plastic), which plucks the string. When the key is released by the player, the far end returns to its rest position and the jack falls back.
The plectrum, mounted on a tongue that can swivel backwards away from the string, passes the string without plucking it again. As the key reaches its rest position, the string's vibrations are halted by the damper, a piece of felt attached to the top of the jack. A spinetta is a harpsichord with the strings set at an angle (usually about 30 degrees) to the keyboard. A clavicytherium is a harpsichord with the soundboard and strings mounted vertically facing the player, the same space-saving principle as an upright piano. In a clavicytherium, the jacks move horizontally without the assistance of gravity, so that clavicytherium actions are more complex than those of other harpsichords.
For most of the history of the harpsichord, however, the clavicytherium was far less common than the horizontal instrument, probably because of its greater complexity and lesser reliability.
