Schallmeybass German?

A Schalmei that appears in the pedal. Audsley quotes Seidel as follows: “[Schalmei] is of 8 ft. and 4 ft. on the manuals, and 16 ft. in the Pedal Organ, when it is termed Schalmeibass.” Adlung writes: “At Breslau there is a Schallmeybass that sounds like a violin, Chormass, i.e., at 8'; see Praetorius [Syntagma Musicum II p.172].”
