Trichterdulzian German

This stop was reportedly invented by Paul Ott, and first used in a residence organ for Hugo Distler in 1938. It was intended as a more compact substitute for a 16' flue stop. From its name, we can infer it to be a form of Dulzian with resonators shaped like a funnel (trichter).
