INSTITUTE OF MUSICAL INSTRUMENT TECHNOLOGY
The harpsichord is a keyboard instrument which unlike the piano has strings that are plucked by a plectra within a jack rather than struck by a hammer (felt covered).
Modern instruments (harpsichords, spinets and virginals) mainly have delrin (plastic) plectra which provide a sound similar to traditional quill plectra (crow or raven quill) other original and contemporary instruments made in the 1950's onwards might have leather plectra. The spinet, virginal and harpsichord are all part of the same family.
