DRUMSTICK Filed Aug. s, 1924 Patentedv Dec. l0, 192,9

UNITED STATES PAT ENT 'OFFICE ABRAHAM M. ZIPPERSTEIN, OF CHICAGO, ILLINOIS, ASSIGNOR OF ONE-THIRD TO ISREAL I. ZIPPERSTEIN i DRUMSTICK Appiication mea August s, 1924. serial Nq. 730,887;

This invention relates broadly to drum sticks and particularly'to drum sticks having an attachment for producing a metallic sound or ring when said attachment engages another metallic body.

An object of the invention is to provide a metallic attachment to a drum stick, to produce a metallic sound when striking another metallic body, and to obviate the necessity w of the musician laying down one stick and picking up another when it is desired to make the metallic sound, thus saving time, simplitying and improving the rendition of music on more than one instrumentby one musician.

In the drawings:

Figure 1 is a perspective view of the preferred form of drum stick.

Figure 2 is a similar view showing the end cut away to disclose structure.

Figure 3 is a perspective view ot a kettle drum beater or stick with the attachment 0r article of the to its end.

Fig. 4 is an elevation of the beater shown in Fig. 3 illustrating the end ot the stick and attachment in section. e

Figure 5 is a ragmental sectional view of a modified form of end piece.

present inventionshown secured form of the stick7 showing the attachment in place adjacent one end.

It has been a source of great inconvenience in the past for the drummer, who usually has to take care of several musical instruments substantially at the same time, to put down one instrument and pick up the other. This is especially truewhere he handles a snare drum, kettle drum and a triangle at vthe same 4c time. The kettle drum is now taken care of by a drum pedal arrangement operated by the foot, but during thek course of the rendition of a musical number the drummer frequently has to lay down his drum stick and, pick up a metallic bar to produce a ringing sound on a triangle or the like.

The drum stick or beater of the present invention has this metallic portion secured there-to either between the ends or at one end so that the drummer may use the same stick vor triangle.

`portion 13 ot the stick and is Figure 6 is an elevational view of a modifie for both purposes namely,

The preferred? form of the invention is shown in Figures 1 and 2 in which the ordinary drum stick 10 terminating in a frustof conical end portion 11 has a beater 12f0rmed at its end, and Aalso has its opposite end 413 turned down to a reduced diameter for a part yot its length forming a shoulder.'

The preferred form of the metallic end piece 14 comprises avliollow cylindrical por' tion 15 formed to snugly fit over the reduced securely fastened thereto. The other end of the metallic end piece is of further reduced diameter and has a smaller bore 16 extending to within a short distance of its entire length.

Hollowing out the end portion in this manner tends to lend balance and a lightness to the stick that is very convenientvfor the drum- I mer, as well as to produce a better tone when engaging a triangle or the like.

In Figure l a kettle drum beater is shown comprising a Stick 17 on which a shoulder 18 is turned to form an abutment for the beater beating the drum V 19. Extended through the beater 19 integral with the stick is a threaded portion 20 which is provided with a lock nut 21 to hold the u stick and beater in locking engagement with each other.

At the other end of the stick 17 a metallic end piece is provided of slightly different construction from the one previously described and comprises a hollow cylindrical portion 26 which tits snugly over the reduced. end portion 27. A special screw 28 having a long cylindrical head is provided with a wood screw portion 29vintegral therewith and eX- tends through an aperture in the end of the metallic end piece 26 to have threaded en'v gagement with the stick 17.

In Figure 5 a slightly modiied form of end piece is provided in which the hollow cylindrical part 30 has internal threads provided to engage with external threadsf31 on the end of said stick.

The modified form in Figure Gis provided with a metallic tube 32 arranged to fit over the reduced portion 33 `and 34 formed on the.

drum stick to-hold the stick sections in fixed relation to each other.

Having described my invention what I claim is:

1. In a drum stick, an end of reduced diameter formed integral therewith7 a metallic end piece secured over said reduced end, and a hollow extension extending beyond the end of the drum stick.

2. In combination with a drum stick having a reduced diameter on one end, a hollow metallic member on said reduced end 'for producing a metallic sound when said extension strikes another metallic body.

3. In a beater head for a drum stick having a reduced diameter on one end, a-1netal lic cap fitted on said reduced end and a hollow extension of reduced diameter extending beyond the end of the stick. 4. In a drum stick, an end of reduced diam eter formed integral therewith, a hollow metallic end piece having a shoulder formed thereon secured over said reduced end, said shoulder being adapted to abut the end of the drum stick to limit its insertion therein, and a hollow extension extending beyond the end of the drum stick for striking an object.

5. In a drum stick having an end ot' reduced diameter, threads formed on said reduced end, a metallic end piece adapted to threadingly engage said threads, and an extension on said end piece extending beyond the end of the drum stick.

In testimony whereof I affix my signature at l0 South La Salle Street, Chicago, Illinois.
