VIOLIN.
Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented Dec. 26, 1911.
Application filed September 15, 1911. Serial No. 649,415.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, OLE O. STORLE, a citizen of the United States, residing at Tacoma, in the county of Pierce and State of lvashington, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Violins, of which the following is a specification, reference being had to the accompanying drawing, forming a part thereof.
The main object of the invention is to increase the volume and improve the quality of the sound or tone.
It consists in the peculiar construction, arrangement and combination of part-s, particularly in the construction and arrangement of the bass bar, as hereinafter particularly described and defined in the claims.
In the accompanying drawing like characters designate the same parts in both figures.
Figure l is an inside view of the belly of a violin to which the improved bass bar is applied in accordance with the invention; and Fig. 2 is a longitudinal section indicated by the dotted line 2 2, Fig. l, of a violin embodying the invention.
In the construction of a violin in accordance with the present invention, a bass bar comprising an arch portion c and a truss portion o, partially separated from the arch portion by longitudinal slits c extending through the ends toward the center of the bar, is fitted and glued or attached to the inner side of the belly d lengthwise thereof. The ends of the truss portion which extend considerably beyond the ends of the arch portion c, are let into longitudinal grooves in the ends of the belly and are glued or otherwise secured therewith to the end blocks e of the violin, as shown in Fig. 2.
In assembling the parts the ends of the belly are sprung slightly downward or toward the bass bar and then glued or attached to the ends of the truss portion so as to subject the same normally to tension.
lith this construction the belly of the violin is or may be made thinner and more sensitive and responsive to the vibration of the strings.
By setting the sound post f about a. half an inch behind the bridge, the most satissound and improves the quality of the tone) of the instrument.
I claim:
1. In a violin the combination with the belly of a bass bar comprising an arch portion fitted and secured to the interior of the belly and a truss portion separated at the ends from the arch portion by longitudinal slits and extending beyond the ends of the arch portion and attached at the ends to the belly.
2. In a violin the combination with the belly and end blocks of a bass bar comprising an arch portion and a truss portion partially separated from each other by longitudinal slits extending through the ends toward the center, the ends of the truss portion extending beyond the ends of the arch portion and being secured with the ends of the belly to the end blocks.
3. In a violin the combination with the belly, of a bass bar comprising an arch portion and a truss portion partially separated therefrom by longitudinal slits extending through the ends toward the center of the bar, the ends 'of the belly beingsprung toward the bar and att-ached to the ends of the truss portion thereby subjecting it to tension.
In witness whereof I hereto aiiix my signature in presence of two witnesses.
OLE O. STORLE.
