Around 1900 the harpsichord also gradually reappeared in various places in Germany. In 1906 Neupert started building harpsichords in Bamberg in his modest piano factory. He applied techniques from piano construction. He sold his harpsichords through the better-quality piano shops, which allowed a wide distribution. Between the two world wars he designed the concert harpsichord, model Bach. Until the 1960s, this type of harpsichord could be found in major concert halls and music universities around the world.
