Description

Nov. 24, 1936. J.,H. ALBRECHT JOINT FOR WIND MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS Filed Sept. 19, 1934 Patented Nov. 24, 1936 JOINT FOR WIND MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS John H. Albrecht, lltica, N. Y., assignor of onehalf to Walter A. Bringe, New Hartford, N. Y.
Application September 19, 1934, Serial No. 744,710
2 Claims.
My invention relates to a joint for wind musical instruments and I declare the following to be a full, clear, concise and exact description thereof sufficient to enable anyone skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same, reference being had to the accompanying drawing in which like reference characters refer to like parts throughout the speciiication.
The object of the invention is to provide a joint at the neck of a saxophone or other wind instrument, whereby to hold in a removable manner the mouthpiece to the saxophone instrument proper in a hermetically sealed or air tight manner.
I-Ieretofore much difliculty has been experienced in these joints because of the leakage of air at such locations. This is undesirable and eifects the tone quality of the instrument. This defect is overcome in the present invention.
The object will be understood more fully by referring to the drawing in which:
Fig. 1 is a plane view of a saxophone, parts being broken away.
Fig 2 is a detail enlarged view showing a central section of the joint between the neck and saxophone, parts being broken away.
Fig. 3 is a detail enlarged view showing a perspective of one half an annular ring employed, parts in sections.
" Referring more particularly to the drawing, the relative parts of the saxophone are shown in the fragmentary view in Fig. 1. Here the mouth piece is designated and the saxophone proper by 2. The union or joint which connects the mouth piece I to the instrument proper l is at the location of neck 3 and embodies a ring or collar 4 made independent of the other parts.
Ring 4 is made with an external knurled or roughened portion 5, whereby to aid in turning the same. The interior wall is reduced in thickness at 6 to form an annular shoulder i that seats upon the counter annular shoulder 8 made integral with the neck part of mouth piece l. Ring t can turn upon shoulder 8, whereby to lock the neck part 9 to part 2 in an air tight manner.
The lower portion of the interior Wall of annular ring l is threaded at H to engage the corresponding threads formed on the upper end 52 of the saxophone proper 2.
lit with the complementary portion instrument proper into the portion l2,
it of the 2, the neck slipping down somewhat snugly.
In operation, the neck part 9 is slipped or telescoped into the portion 52 and pushed together until the threads l i on the upper edge of part i2 meet the threads of annular ring 4, whereby the turning of said ring l will draw portion and neck part 9 tightly together with annular washer l5 disposed therebetwecn.
The above joint or union can be applied to any saxophone or wind instrument without altering the structure thereof as heretofore made.
l-laving thus described my invention what I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patcut is as follows:
1. In a joint for wind musical instruments wherein a mouth piece is telescoped to the neck of a wind musical instrument, an annular shoulder formed on said having a shoulder shoulder on said mouth piece and means disposed a between said shoulder and said instrument neck,
mouth piece, a ring member for cooperating with the whereby to hold said mouth piece neck to said musical instrument neck in a hermetically sealed manner.
2. In a joint for wind musical instruments wherein a mouth piece is telescoped to the neck of a wind musical formed thereon, an
instriunent having threads annular shoulder formed on said mouth piece, a ring member having a shoulder for cooperating with said first named shoulder, said last named member having threads for engaging the threads on the neck of said musical instrument,
and a rubber washer disposed between said shoulder and said musical instrument, whereby to hold said mouth piece neck to said musical instrument neck in an air tight manner.
JOHN H. ALBRECHT.
