ELKHART, INDIANA, A CORPORATION F INDIANA v CLARINET Application filed July 10, 1929. Serial No. 377,274.
This invention relates to musical instruments and especially to clarinets.
The principal object of this invention is to provide an improved tone-opening socket for a clarinet, or the like, to facilitate the flow of sound therethrough.
Another object of the invention is to provide an improved raised tone-opening socket for a clarinet, or the like, said socket having 'y a belled bore to facilitate the flow of sound therethrough.
A third object of the invention is to provide a raised tone-opening socket for an allmetal clarinet which is fiared or belled both interiorlv and exteriorly to facilitate the fiow of soun therethrough and to enhance the comfort to the players finger which engages the socket. Y
Other objects of the invention are mentioned and described herein. y
The preferred embodiment ofthe invention is illustrated in the accompanying drawings, wherein Figure 1 is an exterior view of an all metal clarinet to which my invention is applied; Fig. 2 is a section taken on line 2-2 of'` Fig. 1; and
Figures 3 and 4 illustrate modified forms of the tone-opening socket shown in Figure 2. Similar numerals of reference indicate like parts throughout the several views on the drawings.
The clarinet illustrated herein in Figure 1 is an all-metal one piece tubular body instrument which is provided with the usual number yof tone-openings and l elevated metal sockets for the tone-openings, the instrument being provi-ded also with the usual or suitable key assembly and arrangement for playing the instrument, the latter being well known in the art.
It has been and still is common practice to provide all tone-opening sockets of clarinets with a cylindrical bore, but applicant has found that a tone-opening socket provided with a flared or belled bore not only facilitates the fiow of sound waves therethrough, but also affords greater comfort to the players finger because of the increased diameter of the socket at its outer extremity. Such al raised tone-opening socket, indicated by the numeral 2, and which is normally closedy by the third finger of the left hand of the player,
is provided with a flared or belled bore 3, and said socket may be exteriorly belled at 4 toi reduce the weight thereof.
The socket 2 is preferably mounted in the wall opening 5 in the tubular body metal body l of the instrument, and may be soldered or welded therein. In this socket 2 the innerfend 6 of the bore may be of uniform diameter for a part of the bore length, the outer or belled portion of the bore merging readily therewith. The rim 7 of the flared portion of 65 the socket may be somewhat thickened and@ flattened to afford enhanced comfort to the players finger.
In the modification illustrated in Fig. 3 c the socket is provided with a wall of uniform'mm thickness and the rim 8 has a rounded edge," the socket wall being preferably heavier than usual and belled interiorly and exteriorly. The socket design 9 illustrated in Fig. 3 is provi-ded with the belled bore 3 and a cylin- 75 drical exterior 10.
I claim 1. In a clarinet, a tone-opening socket provided with a flared bore. n
2. In combination, a tubular metal clarinet body provided with an opening in the wallff thereof, and a tone-opening socket mounted in said body wall opening, said socket being provided with a flared bore which is in communication with the instrument body in- V35 terior. f
3. In an all-metal clarinet, a tone-opening socket provided with a'belled bore.
4. In combination, a tubular metal clarinet body provided with an opening in the wallupO thereof, and a tone-opening socket'mounted` in said body wall opening, said socket being provided with a belled bore which is in communication with the instrument body interior.
5. In an all-metal clarinet, a tone-opening socket provi-ded with a flared bore, the rim of said socket being somewhat thickened and flattened.
6. In an all-metal clarinet, a tubular tone- ,100
opening socket which is belled interiorly and exteriorly. Y
7. In combination, a, tubular metal clarinet body provided with an opening in the Wall v thereof, and an elevated tone opening ysocket mounted in Sm body wan 'o'p'enin said socket being provided with a A"'lzii'e boe which is in communication With the instru;- ment :body interior. n.
