Reim German

A rare reed stop of 16' pitch. Wedgwood describes it as a Trombone. Audsley characterizes its tone as �of medium strength and good mixing quality�, while Sumner calls its tone �soft�. All three sources cite the same example listed below, the only one known. The German word means �rhyme�.

Examples
