Reim German

A rare reed stop of 16' pitch. Wedgwood describes it as a Trombone. Audsley characterizes its tone as “of medium strength and good mixing quality”, while Sumner calls its tone “soft”. All three sources cite the same example listed below, the only one known. The German word means “rhyme”.


Reim 16', Pedal; Cathedral, Bremen, Germany; Schulze, Paulinzelle, mid-1800's.
