"The largest pipe of a 64' stop is more than 20 meters (22 yards) long and produces a frequency of about 8 Hz! Many large organs do have a 64' stop on the console and in their stoplists but except for the organs mentioned below all of them are acoustic fakes, that is they are a combination of an existing 32' plus a Fifth extension 21 1/3' (that together produce a differential tone giving a slight 64' impression.

There are only two organs worldwide that have a complete 64' rank going down to the sub-subcontra-C:
• AUS, Sydney, Town Hall:
• USA, Atlantic City, Convention Hall:
