ment has been removed from the carrying case. Furthermore, the holder element and the instrument or instruments are removable from the carrying case element as a unit, and while the instrument or instruments are still connected to or supported by the holder element.

In the device illustrated in said prior application the holder element is designed to support two instruments in fixed position relative to each other. It is frequently desirable to be able to shift the position of the instruments relative to each other after the holder with the instruments thereon have been removed bodily from the carrying case,

and the present invention provides an improvement which permits this to be done.

In the present invention the holder ele ment is made with two sections or parts which are movable relative to each other, each section having provision for support ing an instrument. With this construction the holder element and the instruments supported thereby can be removed from the 0 carrying case as a unit, as in the device shown in my prior application, but after the holder with. its instruments have been removed from the carrying case element, the two parts of the holder may be given a rela- 5 tive movement thereby to shift the relative position ofthe instruments so that they can be placed in a relative position on the floor which is most convenient for the musician. In order to give an understanding of the invention, I have illustrated in the drawings 1932. Serial No. 623,953.

some embodiments thereof which will now be described.

In the drawings:

Fig. 1 is a perspective view of a combined carrying case and bolder element embodying my invention.

Fig. 2 is a view illustrating the holder element removed from the case and showing the instruments carried thereby having the same relative position they have while in 6 the carrying case.

Fig. 3 is a similar view showing the two sections of the holder element having a different relative position than shown in Fig. 2.

Fig. 4 is a section on line l4 Fig. 3.

Fig. 5 is a view similar to Fi 2 but showing a difierent embodiment o the invention.

Fig. 6 shows the embodiment illustrated in Fig. 5 but with the two parts of the holder element adjusted to place the clarinet at the one side of the saxophone.

Fig. 7 is a section on the line 7-7 Fig. 6.

Fig. 8 is a fragmentary sectional view showing the flute holder attachment.

In the drawings 1 indicates 'a carrying case element, which as herein illustrated is designed to receive a saxophone 2 and a clarinet 3 although of course said case may be of the proper size and shape to hold other musical instruments. The carrying case element 1 is provided with the usual body portion 4 and cover 5 which is hinged to the body portion, and said case element is also shown as having the usual handle 6 and looks or clasps 7 for locking the cover closed.

The holder element, which is indicated generally at 8, is bodily removable from the carrying case element 1 and it is provided with means for supporting the instruments 2 and 3 both while they are stored in the carrying case and when they have been removed trom the carrying case. This holder element is made of two parts or sections which are adjustable relative to each other and each of which is provided with means for supporting one of the instruments, the adjustability of the two parts of said holder permitting the position of the instruments to be shifted relative to each other after they have been removed from the carrying case and while they are supported on the holder element.

In the construction. shown in Figs. 1 to 3 the holder element comprises the two sections 9 and 10. The section 9 is shown as in the form of a board or sheet which is provided with a suitable support 11 designed to support the saxophone 2, said support being similar to that shown in my-co-pench' ing application. This support 11 is formed with the yolk 12 to fit under the rim 14E of the bell of the saxophone and withthe curved seat 13 which partially embraces the saxophone near the bend thereof, The hold er section 10 is in the form of any arm pivoted to the member 9 at la, said arm carrying a pinorproje'ction 15 adapted to fit withinthebell of the clarinet or other instrument of similar shape. i hisp rojection is shown as employi a rubber tip 16 which .provides sutlicient frictional engagement with the clarinet to prevent the latter from slipping off from the pro ection even when the holder is carried with the instruments in a horizontal position. The holder section 10 maybe swung from i its storage position shown in Figs. 1 and in which position the clarinet will be situated over the holder sectlon 9 into its operative position shown in Fig. wherein i 1 said arm extends transversely ofr'themember 9 and the clarinet-holding projection 15 is. situated outsideof the holder section .9. indicates a steadying member in the form rof a thin strip of metal which isshown as rigid with the arm 10. Said steadying member 17 is situatedbeneath theholder section- 9 and ispivotedthereto coaXially with the.

arm 10-. One end of this steadying .memben 1. 17 is'also rigidly securedvto the arm 10 2. through a medium of asoud'or.spacer 18..

. The holder: section 9 isshown as having a slot 19 toyreceive the stud 18 whenthe arm.

in: my above-'inentioned application.

Thenthe instruments are stored in the carrying case element. the. arm 10 occupies wits: storage position shown. in Figs. land 2,

and the holder element 8 occupies a position,

adjacent one end of the carrying case as The two instruments thus lie alongside of each other in the carrying case and thelatter may beprovided with suitable rests 20 to support the ends of theinstruments that arenot supported by the holder element. W'h en the instruments are to be used the said instruments and the holder element :maybe'removed bodily and as a unit from the curved rest 27.

21 indicates a stop carriedby the holder section 9 and which. limits the outward swinging i'i'i'ovement of the arm 10.

@In Figs. 5, 6 7, I have illustrated a- (life fercnt embodiment of the invention in which the holderelement comprises thetwo section's'QQ and 23 that are pivotally connected together. The section 22 is in the form of a board or sheet wl -ch has a size andshape' correspending ap iroXimately to that of-the end wah of the carry ng case body. This holt er section is provided with the Qclari-- net-holding projection 24. The holder section 23 formed with the saxophone-hold.

is in the form of a plate supportedonthe holder: section 22 and pivoted thereto to sw ng about an extending transversely to the sectienQQ. Asherein shown this pivotal connection is in the form of aflpivot pin 28 which extendsthrough the, holder sections 23, 22, and is anchored in a plate 36 situate/don the undersideof the holder section 23. '29 is a. steadying member in the form of-a thin metalstrip which ismounteds on the: pivotpin- 28 and can be turned into a position .either parallel tothe holder section 23 orin a position transversely thereto as .shown in Fig. 6, in which .position it acts tobrace and steadythe holder. element. When the-two-parts otthe holder arein their storage position, they will be, turned .relative to each otherso that the steadying member29 will underlie, the holdersection 22 as shown in Fig; 5. c When in this posi tion the saxophone is turned. so that the clarinet will be situated in front thereof. After the holder element with the instruments supported thereby have been removed completely from the carrying case element their thetwo holder sections 22, 23 may beturned relative to each other to-place the clarinetholding 131018Cl1011'24 atone side of the saX- ophone.

Vitlrthe. parts in-this position the saxo phone and clarinet are placed side by side, which in many instances will be the most convenient relative position for the musician.

In both embodiments of the invention, however, the holder element may be placed on the floor and used as a holder for the instruments with the two sections of the holder in the same position that they occupy while in the carrying case, although as stated above it Will usually be more convenient for the operator to shift the relative position of the instruments after they have been removed from the carrying case element.

It is sometimes desirable for a musician to carry a flute in his carrying case along with the saxophone and clarinet. To provide for this I have shown a flute holder which may be used if desired. This flute holder is shown in Fig. 8 and it comprises a socket member 30 having a screw-threaded stem 31 adapted to be screwed into the holder section 22, said socket member having a socket 32 of a size to receive the end of the flute 34 and also preferably having a steadying projection which enters the end of the flute and helps to steady it. This flute-holdmg member 30 is readily removable from the holder section 22 when its use is not required. If, however, the musician carries a flute and wishes to have means for supporting the flute then he may screw the flute holder member 32 into the screw-threaded recess 35 with which the holder member 22 is provided.

I claim:

1. A combined carrying case and holder for musical instruments comprising a carrying case element adapted to receive a plurality of musical instruments and a holder element adapted to be received in the carrying case element but removable bodily therefrom, said holder element having a plurality of sections movable relative to each other, each section having means for supporting a musical instrument, the holder element with the instruments supported thereby being removable bodily and as a unit from the carry ing case and said holder element forming a support for the instruments when removed from said carrying case the relative movement of the sections of the holder providing for placing the musical instruments in a different position relative to each other when the holder is removed from the case than when said holder is in the case.

2. A combined carrying case and holder for musical instruments comprising a carrying case element adapted to receive a plurality of musical instruments and a holder element separable from the carrying case element, said holder element having a plurality of sections movable relative to each other, each section having means for supporting a musical instrument, the holder element with the instruments supported thereby being removable bodily and as a unit from the carrying case and said holder element forming a support for the instruments when so removed the relative movement of the sections of the holder providing for placing the musical instruments in one relative position when the holder is in the case and in another relative position when the holder is removed from the case and functions as a support for said instruments.

3. A combined carrying case and holder for musical instruments comprising a carrying case element adapted to receive a plurality oi musical instruments and a holder element separable from the carrying case element, said holder element having a plurality of sections, each section provided with means for supporting a musical instrument, means for pivotally connecting said sections to permit them to have a turning movement relative to each other, the holder element with the instruments supported thereby being bodily removable as a unit from the carrying case and said holder element when so removed forming a support for the instruments, the pivotal connection between the sections of the holder providing for placing the instruments in one relative position when the holder and instruments are in the carrying case and in another relative position when the holder is removed from the carrying case.

4. A holder for musical instruments, said holder comprising two sections pivotally connected together, instrument-supporting means carried by each section, said sections when in one relative position supporting the instruments one in front of the other and when in another relative position supporting the instruments side by side.
