  1. Organ stop

    An organ stop is a component of a pipe organ that admits pressurized air to a set of organ pipes. Its name comes from the fact that stops can be used selectively by the organist; some can be "on", while others can be "off". The term can also refer to the control that operates this mechanism, commonly called a stop tab, stop knob, or drawknob. The term is also sometimes used as a synonym for register, referring to rank of pipes controlled by a single stop. Registration is the art of combining stops.
