Cymbelbass German
Zimbelbass German

A Cymbel that appears in the pedal. Adlung, the only source to mention it, says only: “Cymbelbass stops are also made that repeat once if they are 1/2' high; others, if they are even smaller, repeat twice.”


Cymbelbass IV-V 1/4', Pedal; Lorenzkirche, Nürnbeg, Germany; Steinmeyer 1937. This is the only known example.


Adlung[1]: §134 Cymbel, §211 Zimbelbass.
