This invention relation lo valvofl wind unisi-ral instrul'nonts7 anfrl capeoially to lifsavy horns.

Tho largor types of bassi horns are made almost wholly of brass and, when in uae. are

Wholly Supported upon tho Shoulder of tho lplayer. Bein;r mail@ of brarss suoli instruments are wry heavy, and aro not onlyv bnr- (lonsomo to tho playvr Wlwn in urso, but also tho oxconivo weight thereof inA froqnei'ltly the Pause of serions in iurjv to tho ifwtrul'nmit while in t1';11i, poi'tati n o" shipment.

The principal objov ol' this invention is to proviilo a vonmositv basa` or olilwr. horn of tho largor six@ whoroin ono or moro ol' ln, horn sor'tious aro malls ot a rolativoly light` W-iight nwtal to matorially roiluro tho Woiglht of thvr iostrumont.

Anolller object of tho iuvonion is to pro vi ls a composito horn of tlm, larger Hizo whoioin tho larg'vr Sortionf; tboroot are ma lo ol an aluminum oompooitiou to materially roilnco tho Woight of lho niatrumznt.

A thir-fl objosi' of tlnx invention is to povill@ a lf ."gfv basis: horn n'horoin tho bell and main l'nant'h Sections aro mail@ of an aluminum oomi'iosition to rofluco the Woiglit olf tho inStrumont fin/l to oliminatoy tho toiylwavinesa thm-cot.

Ratei-rin;lr now to the drawings the nuuioral l lnilwatos grenorally a bass horn of tho Woll Known large iloainn, Commonly known an z Iounaphono. and which is pro- Yiflstl with tui usual tubular curvioal Sertion 2 upon vwhich the Valva action 3 is mounteil :nul which is. un tally inzulo ot brass. The numeral el inilioatos the onrvioal tubular main branvli of lny ii'lstrlunont which.y according to my invention, in lnallo of some very light weight metal, snvh afi aluminum Composition, and n iirh is Connmftml with main Section 2 by a rinniilo lamp joint 5. :zu heroinafter (inscribed.

'l'lnx oulor @nil of tho nlain branch Section Lil is rigidly connected al; 6 in any Suitable manner with the usual boll SQQton 'l' which` in accordance With my in'vontion is made of aluminum Composition, or somo Suitable light Weight inotal, to matorially roduffo tho Weight of tho horn.

Tho joint 5 may infllnliA the Cylindrical aluminum. or other Suitable, light Weight metal. thiniblo olomfnl.: S provhloll with the annular interior Socket portion i) into which the inner @nfl oi' horn Soi'lion A'l tolfgi'opioally arrangfoil and welclod or Soltlorell, Said tliimlilo boing' provided also with the annular oxl'orior Shoulder l0 ailiaoont tho Socket 9. The ontw @nil of horn sooi'ion 2 Wllivll in vonnooteil with branolx l by the joint 5 is toleaconirally connoltfxl and wolnlml or soldered into an annular or ring-lili@ socket mombor ll which ia integral with the tubular sleeve l2, aaial #loew and sovket member boingr pref- Orably mad@ oi braas to onablo said Woldod vonucrtion with horn ssoition 2. The thimble S ol thix joint 5 sliilably telescopes into tho ,@tloovo l2. tho outer ond of tho lattor normally snugly engaging tho annular shoulder l() of Said tlliinbl(J which in (-lanmml in that position. as: lioriinal'ter lr s-ribo l- As Statwl, the Sleeve l2 functionf; au a vlainp and is longitudinally slit at 13 to enable compression itil) thereof about the thimble 8, such compression being` effected b v a clamping screw 14 which is loosely monnted in clamping lug 15 and threaded into clamp lug 16, eaid lugs being Welded on opposite sides o'tf said sleeve slit.

"lo rigidly connect the main aluminum branch l with the outer periphery oi the brass horn section 2, intermediate the eX- t'reinities ot each horn section, a pair of spacing connector elements 18 and 19 are introduced. sind connectors being alike in construction, the details thereof being clearly shown in Figures il. 5 and G, and similarly applied to the instrument atteitlie sections i2 and l have been joined 'together at joint 5. as described.

Spacer 19 comprises an aluminum pad 2() soldered to alumininn horn section l and provided With a rigid boss 2l vliicli is pri'ivided vvitli a screw threaded socket. 'l'he spacer or connector l) comprises also, for adjacent horn section 2. a loose brass pad 22 which ii provided with a screv.' stud if?) rigidly oioiintixl therein and project ing there trom.
