Description

J. H. BOWE. VIOLIN STRING. APPLICATION FILED JUNE 28, 1918.
Patent ed Apr. 8,1919.
JAMES HENRY BOWE, OF NEW YORK, 11'. Y.
VIOLIN-STRING.
Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented Apr. 8, 1919.
Application filed June 28, 1918. Serial No. 242,485.
To all whom it may concern Be it known that 1, JAMES H. Bown, a citizen of the United States, residing at New York, in the county of New York and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Violin- Strings; and I do hereby declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same.
This invention relates to improvements in musical instrument strings especially adaptable for violins and like instruments, and has for one of its objects the provision of means for producing sonority of tone over that of ordinary strings.
Another object of this invention is the provision of a base or core having wound thereon cat gut over which is Wound the silver wire, so that the device will produce a better quality of tone over ordinary strings and one that will remain or hold its tune an indefinite length of time.
With these and other objects in view, as will become more apparent as the description proceeds, the invention consists in certain novel features of construction, combination and arrangement of parts as will be hereinafter more fully described and claimed.
For a complete understanding of my invention, reference will be had to the following description and accompanying drawing, in which:
Figure 1 is a side elevation of a violin string constructed in accordance with my invention,
Copies of this patent may be obtained for five cents each, by addressing the Fig. 2 is a fragmentary perspective view of the same.
Referring in detail to the drawing, the numeral 1 indicates a core or base preferably constructed of steel or any other material suitable for the purpose. The core 1 is of cylindrical formation and extends the full length of the string, and has wound thereon cat gut 2, which is dremed in the usual manner after being wound about the core. Silver wire 3 is then wound about the cat gut 2, providing a string that will produce a better quality of tone over that of an ordinary string, and one that will remain or hold its tune an indefinite length of time.
While I have shown and described the preferred embodiment of my invention, it will be understood that minor changes in con struction, combination and arrangement of parts may be made without departing from the spirit and scope of the invention as claimed.
Having thus described my invention, what I claim is:
A musical instrument string comprising a cylindrical steel core, a strand of cat gut wound about said core in close formation, and a silver wire wound about said cat gut in close formation.
In testimony whereof I affix my signature in presence of two witnesses.
