Zartbass German

Listed only by Maclean, who says: “Name sometimes given to the Swell 16 ft. Gedeckt or Lieblich Bourdon, when borrowed on the Pedal division.”


Osiris contains eighteen examples, all of which are 16' stops in pedal divisions of 20th century German organs. Several are borrowed from other divisions. Several use the same pipes as a 16' Subbass, but on reduced wind pressure.
