davidh Posted July 19, 2008 Share Posted July 19, 2008 I have been surprised to find several instruments with a contra fagotto stop at 8' as I had always assumed that "contra" was an octave below the usual pitch, and therefore the term applied to 16 and 32 foot stops. Is there an explanation for this other than just the whim of an (unnamed) organ builder? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
