UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE.
CHARLES E. ALBERT, JR, OF PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA.
BANJO-BRIDG E.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 503,396, dated August 15, 1893. Application filed February 20, 1893. Serial No. 462,967. (No model.)
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that 1, CHARLES F. ALBERT, Jr., a citizen of the United States, residing in the city and county of Philadelphia, State of Pennsylvania, have invented a new and useful Improvement in Banjo-Bridges, which improvement is fully set forth in the following specification and accompanying drawings.
My invention consists in providing the bridge of a banjo with means whereby it is prevented from slipping.
Figure 1 represents a perspective view of a banjo bridge embodying myinvention. Fig. 2 represents a top plan view thereof. Fig. 3 represents a bottom plan View thereof.
Similar letters of reference indicate corresponding parts in the several figures.
Referring to the drawings:A designates the bridge of a banjo, which excepting the features of my invention applied thereto is of usual construction.
On the under side of the feetB of thebridge is a coating of emery or other suitable gritty material, as at C, which when the bridge is located on the head of a banjo, rests on said head and creates such friction that the bridge is prevented from slipping, its firmness of contact with the head causing the production of a more brilliant and solid tone, and exercise of surety in execution.
The notches D which receive the strings are graded or vary in size according to the different sizes of said strings, and they are numbered say one and five, so that the bridge may always be set on the head in the proper direction relatively to the strings.
In lieu of emery,I may use finely powdered sand, glass or other material of a proper frictional nature.
Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is
A banjo bridge having its bottom or feet provided with a coating of emery or equivalent material, substantially as described.
CHARLES F. ALBERT, JR.
