Kleine Flöte German
Kleinflöte German

The prefix klein (“small”) has been used to indicate a stop of smaller scale or higher pitch than normal. Thus, Kleinflöte could be any flute of small scale, or of 4' or higher pitch. Irwin defines its tone as similar to the Lieblichflöte or Gedeckt.

Compare with Kleingedeckt.
