A. ROMAO BANJO STAND Filed April 19. 1926 INVENTOR. A (/6057 POM/1 0 A TTORNEYS.
Patented June 12, 1928.
UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE.
AUGUST Romeo, or SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA, ASSIGNOR T MUSICAL ACCES- SORIES CORPORATION, OF OAKLAND,
FOBN IA.
v CALIFORNIA, v.A CORPORATION OF CALI- BANJ'O STAND.
Application filed April 19, 1926. Serial No. 103,027.
I The present invention relates to improvements in banjo stands, and its particular object is to provide a convenient collapsible stand on which a banjo player may place his instrument during intermissions in such a manner that the banjo is protected from scratches, may be easily deposited and taken up again while the stand, at the same time,
may be-folded and is of such dimension and 1 character thatthe same may be accommodated in the banjo case ordinarily used.
It is further proposed to provide a banjo stand in combination with a cloth protector, the latter being made so that it may be easily applied to the banjo stand when the latter is set up while it may be readily removed and reapplied after the banjo stand has been collapsed so as to substantially encircle the same and protect the banjo from direct contact with the stand when both are assembled in the case.
Further objects and advantages of my device will appear as the specification proceeds.
The preferred form of my invention is illustrated in the accompanying drawings, in which:
Figure 1 is a front view of my banjo stand with the banjo shown in place.
Figure 2 a side view of the same with the protecting cloth shown in section.
Figure 3 a view showing the banjo stand collapsed, and
Figure 4 a view showing the stand in its collapsed condition assembled in a case together with the banjo, the case and the banjo being shown in a fragmentary manner.
My banjo stand 1 comprises an elongated plate 2 to one end of which two legs 3 are pivoted so as to swing substantially in the plane of the plate while a third leg 4 is pivoted to the same end to swing in a plane at right angles to the plane of the plate. This arrangement I preferably obtain by securing two angle irons 6 to the rear face of the plate 2 so that two flanges 7 of the angle irons lie against the plate while the two other flanges 8 rise from the plate in spaced relation, allowing the leg 4 to be pivoted therebetween as shown at 9. The two legs 3 are pivoted to the two flanges 7 respectively and have their ends cut at an angle as shown at 11 so that when the legs are spread as shown in Figure 1, the end faces of the two legs contact the flanges 6 which thus form a stop for the same.
tending from the front faces thereof substantially at right angles and at a desired distance from the floor. The pin-s which are of a length corresponding substantially to the thickness of a banjo are preferably provided with rubber sleeves 13.
A protecting cloth 14 is preferably made substantially triangular in form with the ext-reme point of the triangle out off and with a second piece ofcloth 16 of similar shape secured to the upper half of the same to form a pocket 17 in which the plate 2 ma be received. The base corners of the clot are provided with suitable eyelets 18 adapted to be slipped over the pins 12 for holding the cloth in place.
To use my device the legs of the stand are spread in the manner shown in Fi ures 1 and 2 and the cloth is applied by s ippin the pocket portion over the plate 2 an by thereupon securing the eyelets to the supports 12. The banjo may now be placed on the supports so as to lean against the plate 2 or the cloth covering the same in the manner illustrated in Figure 1. For collapsing, the cloth is first removed, the three legs are brought together and the cloth is then slipped on the plate 2 in a reverse position whereupon the side edges of the cloth near the base may be folded upon the three legs and again fastened by means of the eyelets 18 to the pins 12. The collapsed device is illustrated in Figure 3. The same may now be placed in the case 19 after the banjo itself, which is shown in dotted lines, is positioned therein, the regular banjo case providing suflicient space above the neck of the banjo to allow the collapsed device to be placed on top of the same while the pins 12 straddle the base portion of the neck and are readily accommodated within the case.
I claim:
1. In a banjo stand, a tripod having a single upward extension substantially in the plane of two of its legs, supports for the banjo extending outwardly from two legs of the tripod allowing the banjo to lean against the legs and the extension and a protective cover made for interposition between the banjo and the tripod having a pocket in The legs 3 are provided with pins 12 exports.
which the extension may be received and formed with eyelets by means of which any opposite portion of the same may be fastened to the supports.
2. In a banjo stand, a tripod having a single upward. extension substantially in the plane of twov of its legs, supports for the banjo extending outwardly from two legs of the tripod allowing the banjo to lean against the legs and the extension and a protective cover substantially triangular in formhav-' ing a pocket formed in the top end thereof in which the extension may be received and having eyelets near the base corners by'means of which it may be fastened'to the two sup- '3. In a banjo stand, a plate having two legs pivoted to one end thereof substantially in the plane of the plate and a third leg at right angles thereto, supports for a banjo collapsed. extending from the two legs and a substan- 7 tially triangular protective cover formed with a pocket in its top portion adapted to he slipped over the plate and with means for fastening its base corners'to the supports for interposition between the stand and the banjo,v the cloth being adapted for reversal on the plate and for substantially enclosing thewhole stand when the legs are collapsed and the base corners again fastened to the supports.
4. A collapsible stand for musical instruments, pins carried by said stand for aiding in supporting the instrument and a protective cover mountable on said stand andbeing attachable to said pins, said pins holding said cover in a flat plane when said frame is in operative position, said pins also being adapted to secure said cover in folded position around said stand when said stand is AUGUST ROMAQ- u
