Description

Patented Oct. 26, 1937 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE 3 Claims.
This invention relates to violn strings, and its principal object is to provide a string for musical instruments wherewith will be attained improved tonal quality, beauty, and resonance, and which 5 will possess improved strength, durability, and
reliability.
Other objects and advantages will hereinafter appear.
In the accompanying drawing,-
Fig. 1 is a Side elevation of the violn string constituting the invention, as the string appears during the process of its manufacture.
Fig. 2 is an end elevation of the violn string shown in Fig. 1.
Figs. 3, 4 and Figs. 5, 6 are corresponding views illustrating modifications of the invention.
The violn string la, Figs. 1, 2, comprises a metallic wire core l around which is wound a thread 2 of fibrous Silk, and around Said Silk is wound a thread of gut 3. Said Silk and gut are closely and firmly wound as shown, so as to form complete envelopes, the Silk 2 around the core l and the gut 3 around the Silk 2. In the making of the violn string la, the core l is stretched taut, then the Winding of the Silk thread 2 is performed therearound firmly, closely, and completely, and then the gut thread 3 is similarly wound around the Silk 2.
According to the modification shown in Figs. 3,
4, the violn string 3a is made similarly to the violn string la, but around the gut layer 3 is wound a metallic wire 4, as shown.
In the modification shown in Figs. 5, 6, there is wound around the gut layer 3 a Silk thread 5 as shown, and around the Silk 5 is wound a me- 5 tal1ic wire 6.
I have found that strings made as hereinabove disclosed possess greatly enhanced tonal beauty and resonance, as well as strength and durability, and while utilizable for instruments of the en- 1 tire violn family will be found similarly advantageous for plucked or percussion musical instruments.
Having thus described my invention, I claim:
1. A violn string having the combination of a 15 metallic wire core, a fibrous Silk layer enveloping said core, and a layer of gut enveloping said Silk layer.
2. A violn string having the combination of a metallic wire core, a fibrous Silk layer enveloping said core, a layer of gut enveloping said Silk layer, and a metallic layer enveloping said gut layer,
3. A violn string having the combination of a metallic wire core, a fibrous Silk layer enveloping said core, a layer of gut enveloping said Silk layer, a fibrous Silk layer enveloping said gut layer, and a metallic layer enveloping said last Silk layer.
