An 8' or 4' reed stop of the Regal class. According to Praetorius it was a delicate 4' stop which sounded like a violin (geige) in the treble range when drawn with a Quintaton. Wedgwood reports that it was used as early as 1585 by Julius Antonius at St. Mary, Danzic (Gdansk), Poland. Irwin describes its tone as brilliant, light-toned, reedy, and very thin, and its resonators as short and of small diameter. Adlung considers Jungfernregal to be a synonym.
Osiris contains six examples of Geigenregal and five of Geigendregal, one at 16' pitch, two at 8', and the rest at 4'. No examples are known of Geigendregälchen (mentioned only by Praetorius). Contributions welcome.
