Listed only by Wedgwood, who says:
Kammer - In old German organs a term signifying that the stop to the name of which it was prefixed was tuned to “Kammerton” (chamber tone), a tone in pitch below “Chorton” (choir tone). Such stops (Kammerflöte, Kammergedackt, etc.) were tuned a tone lower than the rest of the organ and used for instrumental accompaniment.
Kammerton-Gedackt 8', Oberwerk; Brandenburger Dom (Liebfrauenkirche), Brandenburg, Germany; Joachim Wagner, 1733-36. This is the only known example.
