Description

UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE.
C. S. COOPER, OF NEW YORK, N. Y.
BASS-BAR FOR VIOLINS.
`Specification of Letters Patent No. 10,203, dated November 8, 1853.
To all whom t may concern Be it known that I, CORNELIUS S. COOPER, of the city, county, and State of New York, have invented a new and Improved Beam or Bass-Bar for the Violin, Tenor or Viola, Violoncello, Double Bass or Violone; and I do hereby declare that the following is a full and exact description.
The nature of my invention consists, in removing and taking from any of said above mentioned instruments, the original beam or bass bar, which is irmly glued into the top or sound board the full length of said bass beam or bar, and putting in another beam or bar on an improved principle, which gives greater power and more brilliancy of to-ne, to that noble instrument.
The form of my improved plan for the beam or bass bar, is shown in the accompanying drawings.
Figure l, is the side view of the violin, with the spring bass bar attached. A, the spring bar or beam. B and C, denote the two places, or two rests for each end of the spring beam, in the end blocks. Fig. 2,
shows the side view of the spring beam or bass bar, detached from the violin. Fig. 3, shows the front view of said spring beam or bass bar detached from said instrument. Fig. 4, shows the front view of the said spring beam or bass bar, which I claim as my improvement, showing the position where the ends of said spring rests upon or in the end blocks.
A, the spring beam, B and C, shows where the'notches or mortises are cut into the end blocks for each end of the spring to rest upon. D and E, shows the line of said spring beam, or bass bar, which is shown in the drawings. It is intended to answer the purpose of a half spring made of wood to take place of the solid bass beam or bar, giving it by far, greater powers than the old principle.- This half spring or spring beam is glued to the top, for the space of about three inches, as shown in the drawings between the holes lengthwise of the violin and running in the same direction as the old principle. The ends 'from said three inches which is glued to the top or soundboard, curves downward and is supported by the two end blocks into which said blocks notches or mortises are out expressly to receive them, separating the spring from the top except said three inches, as above mentioned. The top when glued to the rim brings said ends of springfirmly into said notches or mortises in said end blocks, made expressly to receive them. The object is, to make the vibration of the top or sounding board greater, giving it greater power and more lirmness and evenness of tone, and making the tone far more sweet and pleasing to the ear.
IVhatI claim as my invention and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-
The application of the spring bass beam or bar, in place of the solid beam which is taken from the violin for the violin, tenor or viola, violoncello double'bass or violone, or any other instrument requiring a bass beam or bar for the production of tone, then the supports of the ends of said spring or im proved bass bar by cutting of notches or mortises in said end blocks, as shown in the accompanying drawings and supporting said ends ot' spring in any manner by connecting them or the bearings of said spring to said end blocks to produce the desired effect also the separation of the bass bar or beam from the top or sound board except the three inches as before mentioned and shown in the drawings using any wood which will produce the desired eect;
CORNELIUS S. COOPER.
