The player's side of this small chest organ, made in northern Germany about 1620, contains the 45-key manual and four exposed, horizontal wood pipes. Six leather straps at the side of the chest allow the organist to select which of the six stops are to be played. The stop list includes: Doppelter Zimbal 1/6', Flote Major 8', Flote Minor 4', Oktave 2', Doppelte Mixtur 1/2', and Prinzipal 1'.
