Echo Nachthorn English|
While authorities agree that the name Fernhorn refers to a softer and smaller scaled Nachthorn, there is little agreement on what type of Nachthorn. Wedgwood describes it as �a cylindrical open metal stop, of large scale but small bore, at Washington Temple, U.S.A. (Kimball Co.).� According to Maclean, that same example is stopped, not open. Audsley describes it as half-covered and of 8' pitch, and recommends a pressure of 2.5" or less. Irwin describes its tone as �placid, quiet� and �fluty but not round-toned�. The name Fernhorn comes from the German word fern, meaning �distant�.
