Seek Stop Dictionary for Cottage Reed Organ
By John A. Tuttle

Hi All,  Does anyone have a Stop Dictionary for Reed Organs.  The unit
I'm working on (Taylor/Farley Cottage Organ, 7 Stops, 2 1/2 set of reeds)
has only one Stop name plate and it's spelled 'Dulcrana'.  I'm hoping
that finding out what it means will help me figure out what the other six
names might have been.

Two interesting features of this reed organ is that 1) it plays in a
tremolo mode unless the center stop is pulled out, and 2) the half-set
of reeds are mounted vertically.

Any help will be greatly appreciated,

John A. Tuttle (
