ATTACHMENT FOR VIOLINS.
APPLICATION man MAR. H. 1916.
Patented July 25, 1916.
UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE.
FRANK M. ASHLEY, OF NEW YORK, N. Y.
ATTACHMENT FOR VIOLINS.
Application filed March 11, 1916.
To all whom it may concern.
Be it known that I FRANK. M. AsniLny, a citizen of the United States. and a resident of New York city, borough of Brooklyn in the county of Kings and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Attachments for Violins, oi? which the following is a specification.
My invention relates to an attachment for violins 'V'iOlftS, etc.
The object of my invention is to provide a device which can be easily attached to the end of the fingerboard of a bow instrument to guide the bow and prevent it from sliding above the fingerboard in the actof playing, and is desired primarily for the use of those who are just beginning to learn the art (Iii playing.
Referring to the drawings which form a part of this specification, Figure 1 is a per spective ViOW of my improved bow guide mounted on the fingerboard of a violin. Fig. 2 an end elevational view. Fig. 3 is a side view of the construction illustrated in Fig. 2.
A. indicates a portion of the body of a violin; B the fingerboard; C the bridge; E the strings; and F a piece 01 spring steel or brass or other suitable material that may be bent into the form illustrated which embodies two or more U-shaped clamps g-g Specification of Letters Patent.
Serial No. 88,562.
on each side adapted to engage the sides of the fingerboard as shown and supporting the upright portions ]t/ L and cross piece i, the cross piece i and uprights 7i-/z, forming a spring which acts to clamp the side portions to the fingerboard.
The device is preferably formed in a single piece and ca 1 he moved on the finger board to the 5 iron position. It may be used. on a cello if made of the proper size to iit the fingerboard of this instrument.
The bow in crossing the strings may contact with the uprights and the pupil soon learns to operate it without contact, after which period the device may be removed if desired.
Having thus described my invention, I claim as new:
A bow-guide formed of a single piece of spring material having two upright portions connected by a cross piece, and two side portions having clamping members adapted to engage the sides of the fingerboard and held thereto by the spring formed by the uprights and cross piece.
igned at New York city. in the county of York, and State of New York, this day of March 1A. D. 1916.
