Application filed .ilgn'il 3, 1915. Serial 337e, 19,374.

To (ZZZ 207mm z'zfmo r concern Be it known that I, An'ronio .lflaroignmno, a citizen of Italy, residing at ilfiilltown, in the county of Middlesex and State of New Jersey, have invented new and Useful linprovcments in Ploctrafor Musical instruments, of which the following is a specification.

This intention relates to glectra for musical instruments and more particularly to mandolin picks.

The principal object of the invention is to provide a simple and ellicient holder for picks which Will give a line grip and permit the proper tremolo action.

it is a, further object of the invention to provide device of this character which is flexible, in which the pick is remorably held so as to be conveniently replaced when Worn or broken and in which the same grip is obtained as with the ordinary form oi? shell pick.

Further objects of the invention. will appear as the following description i 5 read in connection with the accompanying drawings, and in whichz-- Figure 1 is a perspective View. is an enlarged sectional View.

'l he channel 2 extends from the forward end of the body and to a point in the the aperture and on opposite sides thereof. The pick which may be constructed of any suitable material such as horn, shell, celluloid a rmess ii n e rs,

forced into the channel against the resiliency of the rubber and is, therefore, hold -within the channel by frictional cngne'einent of the Walls thereof upon the faces and edges of the pick.

With a device of this character picks may be made considerably smaller than usual and may be readily replaced when broken or Worn. At the same time the holder produces a. covering which has great frictional qualities and which provides for a firm grip upon the pick whic i is impossible with the smooth shell, celluloid or horn picks how in present use. r

llk'hat is claimed is:-

l. in com nation with an ovoid Zithcr av one piece resilient holder provided with a through opening and a channel, th Walls of which inrlosothe edge of the larger or the like end of said pick.
