    A wikipedia stoplist example.

    I have a sort of general idea of what type of stop you would find on an organ,

    But what organs have a stop list like this?
    and what is an Avio 2' stop?

    I've never heard of that stop nor can I find any reference to it, but as shown on that stop list it would be a 2 ft. most likely a chorus reed (trumpet tribe) or perhaps a regal of some sort.

    It might be a special creation of an Italian organ builder called "Avio". I found a skewed reference to an "Avio organ-builder" but could not home in on it.

    Maybe the Minor Tierce 1 3/4 is used to make a sad sounding Cornet.

    The word "Avio" is a name of hamlet in north Italy, but there is not reference with organ. In Italy, I have never seen this organ stop. I'm sure, in Italy does not exist this stop.

    What is kind of funny is that it is in red, in which reading the text that it would be a reed rank. looking at the last edit date for the article was last year in December. I have no clue why would they put it in, unless it is a severe misspelling or an outright corruption of a stop name that is out their.
