Octave Bass English

This stop is listed only by Locher. His entry for Octave Bass says only “see Flute Bass”; his entry for Flute Bass says only “see Flute”. In his entry for Flute, he says only that the tone tone of the Octave Bass is similar to that of the Flute Bass.

The name Octave Bass may simply be an Anglicized version of the German Octavbass, which would contradict Locher's explanation.


Osiris[1] contains many examples at 8', 4' and 2' pitch.


Locher[1]: Flute; Octave.
