IMPROVEMENT IN REED-ORGANS.
Specification forming part of Letters Patent No. 207,906, dated September 10, 1878; application filed July 8, 1878.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, HENRY W. SMITH, of est Newton, of the county of Middlesex and State of Massachusetts, have invented a new and useful Improvement in Reed-Organs; and do hereby declare the same to be described in the following specification and represented in the accompanying drawing, which is a vertical section of an organ wind-chest and three reeds, and their ducts arranged therewith, and with a chamber to open into such chest,all being in accordance with my improvement, and as hereinafter described.
My invention is productive of important advantages in the construction of a reed-organ of the kind known to the trade by the term upright. In carrying it out, I have, in connection with the wind-chest A and a reed-duct, B, at the back of such, and to open into the said wind-chest, a chamber, 0, arranged below and independent of the aforesaid reed-duct, and having other reed-ducts, D E, arranged and opening into it at its bottom and back, as represented, each reed-duct being furnished with a slotted reed-plate, a, and a reed, b, thereto.
The drawing shows the reed-duct D as parallel to the rced-duct B, and as opening into the chamber 0. It also shows the reed-duct E as arranged at a right angle to the windchest and to the two ducts, D 13. I do not,
however, confine my invention to such a disposition of the ducts, as the angle of the duct E relatively to either of the other ducts or the wind-chest may be somewhat acute.
From the above it will be seen that all the ducts are made to so communicate with the wind-chamber that one valve applied to the opening 0 answers for all of them. Each duct is to have a stopwalve at its outer end.
My invention, though analogous to that shown in the United States Patent No. 13,704, has one of the reed-ducts of the chamber 0 arranged horizontally beneath the bottom of such chamber, also under one of the others arranged vertically at the back of the chamber, in consequence of whichthe valve-opening c is not required to be extended below the bottom of the chamber, and the valve for such opening 0 becomes correspondingly shorter than would be the case were the lower valve-duct, E, arranged vertically. Therefore,
I claim- In combination with the wind-chest A and the chamber 0, and the reed-ducts B and D, arranged therewith as shown, the reed-duct E, arranged horizontally below the said chamber 0 and the duct D, and to open upward into the former, all being substantially as represented.
HENRY W. SMITH.
