Sadt German

The “Schedule” drawn up by “Father” Bernard Smith in 1688 for his organ in the Temple Church, London, England, includes “A Sadt of Mettle, 61 pipes, 06 foote tone”. This is apparently the only example of this stop name, and is believed to have been some sort of Gemshorn. Sumner gives its etymology as deriving from the German word zackt, meaning “pointed”.
