SNARE ATTACHMENT.

' Application filed December 27, 1926. Serial No. 157,171.

This invention relates to a snare attachment justing-the pins in proper holes, the distance unit for :drums capable; of being detachably across the divided ring maybe adjusted and moiinted on a drum and whichdoes not rethe tension on the snares varied. .Thedividquire snare beds to insure the snares resting ed ring is articulated-that is, the segments are 5 against'the head. It isan object of this ino ned together, the outer ring servingas no vention to provide-a unit of the character dea oint connection between the segments and scribed whereinthe snares as a group hug providing a ortion of the articulation. and-follow- -thehead in its vibration and at the Strung across t e divided ring are the snares same time permit the snares to vibrate iude- 14 which may be of helical wire or other suit- 110 pendently therebysecuring perfect snare coable material acting as springs tendin to operation.- ;',Another object of this-invention buckle the divided ring. The segments 0 the isto provide ;a' simple and inexpensive unit ring act as bridges for the'snares. The ring whereinthe snares may be applied instan-' will tend to buckle over center in either directaneously tothe head, or released by the tion. The snares may be secured to the segdrummerso asto produce the usual snare ments by being inserted in holes 15 in the segeffect-or mufiie :the drum as desired. ments as best shown in Figs. 3-and 4:.

(The-variousadvantages of the structure The attachment may be held against the will'be apparent from the description of the drums by means of hooks 16 attached to the embodiment of the invention which is illusshell and overhanging the ring 10.

In the position shown Referring with more particularity to the in Fig. 4, the snares are released from condrawing, the invention is shown herein as emtact with the head. This position may be bodied in a snare drum, but it 'is not limited quickly attained by grasping segment 11 to use with such a drum. The particular when in a position shown in Fig. 3 and'pulling drum shown herein is for illustrative purit outwardly away from the head. This poses only. It comprises a barrel or shell 6, moves segment 11 so that the axis of the which may be constructed of fibre, or any articulation is over center and causes the di 40 other suitable material. It is headed at the vided ring to buckle so as to hold the snares edges as indicated by 7 to provide a rounded away from the head. It will be noted that surface over which the head 8 may be segment 11 is permitted a greater swinging stretched. This head may be the usual skin movement than 11 by reason of the position or membrane and may be secured over the of the length of web 17 thereby insuring com- 45 sh'ell by'suitable hoops and hooks not illusplete buckling.

disposed within the ring 10 and comprises It is obvious that the snares when the atsegments 11 and 11". Each segment has at tachment is in the condition shown in Fig. 3,

its end trunnions 12 and 12". These trunwill follow the head, lying snugly against it,

By adof the segments. The drummer may continue to strike with his right. stick and apply 7 or release the snares with his left hand.

By the construction which I"have herein disclosed it will be seen that a drum may be produced which possesses the capability of full vibration under blows of all character. Different types of snares may be used with the same drum. by merely changing the attachment.

The tension of the snaresmay be individuallyadjusted by means of the holes 15. The snares may be collectively adjusted by adj usting theposition of the'trun'nions 12 and 12" in the holes 13'so that the collective tension may be varied to insure-a manifold action. What I claim is:

1. In combination with a drum' comprising a shell'and head stretched thereacross, a snare attachment disposed over said head including a frame, snare bridges on said frame movable to and from said head, snares strung on said bridges tending -to more the latter either to or from said head, and means urging the attachment against said head;

2. In combination with a drum comprising a shell and ahead stretched thereacross, a snare attaclnuent disposed over said head ineluding a frame, snare bridges articulated to said frame so as to be'swung to or from said head, snares st rung on said bridges tending to swing the latter either to or from said head, and means yieldingly holding said attachment against said head;-'

'-' 3a In combination-with a drum eomprisin a'sllell and a head stretched thereacross. a

' snare attachment disposed over said head including a ring frame divided to form seg ments with one of the segments articulated to the remainder of said ring so as to be movable laterally of said ring, snares strung across said ring and being connected atone end to the articulated segment whereby the snare may be released from said head by moving said segment away from said head, and means urging said ring against said head with said snares applied thereto.

4. In combination with a drum comprising a shell and a head stretched thereacross, a snare attachment disposed over said head including a ring frame,-a ring segment articulated to said frame so as to be movable laterally of said head, snares strung within said frame and being connected at one of the ends to the articulated segment whereby the snares may be released by moving said segment away from said head, and means for detachably holding said frame against said head with a yielding pressure.

5. In combination with a drum comprising a shell and a head stretched thereacross, a snare attachment disposed over said head including a ring frame, a divided ring having its segn'ients articulated to the frame, snares strung across said ring and being connected at the ends to the articulated segments so as to tend to buckle said frai'ne, and means urging said frame againstgsaid head.

'6. In combination with a drunrcompris ing a shell and a head stretched thereacross, a snare attachment disposed over said head including a ring frame, a bridge ring divided into two' segments hingedly jointed so as to be foldable, snares strung under tension across said bridge ring from one segment to the other tending to buckle said bridge ring, and means for detachably holding said frame against said head and urging said ring to follow saidhead, 7 7. A snare attachment for drums comprising a ring frame, a bridge segment articulated to said frame, snares strung under tension across said ring and being connected atone of their ends to the articulated segment, said snares tending to buckle said frame. 7

8. A snare attachment for drums compris' ing a ring frame, a bridge ring divided into two segments connected .to said frame by artieulations, and snares'strung-under tension across said bridge ring from onesegment to the other tending to buckle said'bri'dge ring.

9. A snare, attachment for driuns comprising a ring frame a bridge ring divided-into two segments hinged to said frame atad jacent ends sons to be-folded, and snares strung under tension across said bridge ringfrom one segment to the other tending to bhckle said. bridge ring; 5 10. A snare attach mentfor drums comprising a ring frame, a bridge ring divided into two segments hinged to said frame at adjacent ends so as to be folded, means to limit the folding movement of said segments whereby one of said segments is limited to lesser amplitude ofmovement than the other of said segments, and snares strung under tension across said bridge ring from one segment to the other tending to buckle said bridge ring.

11. A snare attachment for drums comprising a ring frame, a bridge ring divided into two segments, snares strung across said bridge ring, means for hinging and adjustably spacing the hinge axes of said segments to said frame at adjacent ends so as to be collapsible whereby to vary the collective tension on said snares. 12. A snare attachment for drums comprising a ring frame, a bridge ring divided into two segments, snares strung across said bridge ring, means for hinging and adjustably spacing the hinge axes of said segments to said frame at adjacent ends so as to be collapsible whereby to collectively adjust the tension on said snares, and means to individually adjust the tension on said snares.

In witness that I claimthe foregoing I have hereunto subscribed my name this 17th day of December, 1926.
