JWAnderson Posted September 11, 2012 Share Posted September 11, 2012 Hello everyone! An interesting question popped into my head today whilst I was preparing an engraving list for a set of drawstop knobs regarding stop names. The stop in question is a Double Open Diapason 16'. The whole name will not fit onto the name plate because of the size of the font, but my first thought was to shorten it to Double Open Diap. But then, I thought why not shorten it down to Double Diapason. Now getting back to the question- If you saw Double Diapason engraved on a stop knob, what would stop would you expect to get, a Open Diapason at 16' or a Stopped Diapason at 16'? I can think of two organs where one has this as an open stop and the other where it is a Bourdon. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
