A flute stop of 16', 8' or 4' pitch, similar in most respects to the Rohrflöte. Sumner calls the Rohrgedeckt “darker in tone” than the Rohrflöte. Maclean gives it a wide scale and long, narrow chimneys, compared to the short, narrow chimneys of the Rohrflöte.
Osiris contains around 90 examples, about two-thirds of which are at 8' pitch. Two are at 2' pitch; the rest are at 16' and 4' pitch.
