Dulzgedackt German

An 8' or 4' stop listed only by Sumner who says:

A metal stop which tapers outwards towards the top and is closed with a metal canister, which is sometimes fitted with a chimney. This useful construction has been used in Germanic countries and more recently in America.

The prefix “dulz” derives from the Latin dulcis, meaning “sweet”.

Compare with Cone Gedackt, Spitzgedeckt. See also Gedackt.
