Dulzgedackt German

An 8' or 4' stop listed only by Sumner who says:

A metal stop which tapers outwards towards the top and is closed with a metal canister, which is sometimes fitted with a chimney. This useful construction has been used in Germanic countries and more recently in America.

The prefix �dulz� derives from the Latin dulcis, meaning �sweet�.

Compare with Cone Gedackt, Spitzgedeckt. See also Gedackt.
