Rohrquintadena is listed only by Sumner, who says: “16 ft., 8 ft., 4 ft., or 2 ft. More lively in tone that [sic] Rohrflöte.” Rohrquintade is mentioned only by Maclean, who gives it short, narrow chimneys and a narrow scale, as opposed to the wide scale of the Rohrflöte. Rohrquintaden and Rohrquintaton do not appear in the literature; we assume all four names to be more or less synonymous.See Quintadena, Quintaton, Quintade.
