REED-ORGAN.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 678,329, dated July 9, 1901. Application filed septemher 13, 1895. Serial No. 562,395. (No model.)
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that 1, ROBERT J. BENNETT, a citizen of the United States, residing at Chicago, in the county of Cook and State of Illinois, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Reed-Organs, of which the following is a specification.
My invention relates to certain improvements in the form and character of resonator and in its relationship and position relative to the reed-cells and also in means by which the stop-valves on each side of the-instrument are operated from one point and by one stop. 4
My invention consists in the combination, with the reed-cells and reed-board, of a metallic resonator which is of a circular form in cross-section, and which is positioned relative to and secured upon the reed-board in such a manner as to extend longitudinally along beneath the reed-cells and terminating transversely at each end of the reed-cells or along the edges of the reed-board, thereby providing a deep and capacious resonator beneath the reed-cells which does not extend on either side of the reed-board, and therefore does not increase the width of the sections, each of which sections consists of separate sets of reeds,reed-b0ards,reed-cells, and resonators arranged one above the other in the usual manner.
My invention consists, further, in the combination of exhaust-channels or wind-trunks leading to the bellows located at each side of the instrument and stop-valves for each set of reeds located and arranged in such relationship to each of the wind-trunks as to open communication thereto and connections between the valves for each set of reeds and a stop whereby the valves on each side of the instrument for each set of reeds are controlled from one point of operation.
Reference may now be had to the accompanying drawings, in which- Figure 1 is a front view of a portion of one section comprising a resonator, reed-board, and reed-cells. Fig. 2 is a cross-sectional view on the line as w of Fig. 1. Fig. 3 is a similar view to Fig. 1, showing an auxiliary resonator in the rear of the reed-cells and reed-board. Fig. 4: is a cross-sectional view on the line 3 y of Fig. 3. Fig. 5 is a detail perspective View showing the wind-trunks leading to the bellows located on either side of the instrument, and the valve and connections which operate said valves in unison from one point. Fig. 6 is a sectional view through one of the wind-trunks and the rosenator, showing the connections between one of the valves and the stop.
Referring first to the form of resonator shown in Figs. 1 and 2, it is my object to provide means whereby the sound-vibrations from the reeds are caused to pass into and through a deep, large, and capacious chamber formed by metallic walls, which resonatorchamber is disposed beneath the reed-cells and so arranged as not to increase the width of the section which consists of the reed-board, reed-cells, and resonator, these sections being arranged one above the other and provided with means whereby the reed-cells are opened by the keys and valves actuated by stops in the usual manner.
The reed-board is designated at 15, containing the reed-cells 16, and the resonator 17 is located below the reed-ce1ls 16 and has communication therewith. This resonator-cham ber 17 is formed by means of the semicircular sheet-metal wall 18, the upper edges of which are secured by means of strips 19. This semicircular wall 18 is extended longitudinally along the section 20 and has communication with the wind-trunks leading to the bellows through suitable stop-controlled valves in the usual manner. It will be observed by reference to Fig. 2 that the width or cross-section of the resonator 17 does not exceed that of the reed-board l5, and therefore with this form of resonator it is evident that a deep, large, and capacious chamber is provided without increasing the cross-section or width of the instrument.
In Figs. 3 and 4 I have shown a form of rectangular auxiliary resonatoi321, located in the rear of the wind-chest or primary resonator 22 and having communication therewith. In this form the walls 23 of the auxiliary resonator 21 are of the same material as the walls of the reed-cells 16. 1
Referring to Figs. 5 and 6, I will describe the mechanism by which the stop-valves are operated at each side of the instrument from one point. The auxiliary resonator 2 1 is se cured, as shown, to the wind-trunks or chimneys 25, located at each side of the instrument and connected with the bellows in the usual manner. The resonator 24 has communication with the wind-trunks by means of the hinged stop-controlled valves 26 and 26, located at each side of the instrument in the resonator 24. A rock-shaft 27 is journaled in the resonator 24 and has the arms 28 extended upward therefrom and connected with the valves 26 26 by means of the rods 29, the valves being normally held closed by the springs 30. One of the valves 26 is operated by the stop 31 and connections, as shown in Fig. 6, these connections consisting of a lever 32, pivotally mounted at 33 and op erating a push-rod 3%, which bears against the valve 26, the lower end of the lever 52 being connected with the pull-rod 35, in turn connected by intermediate mechanism of usual form with the stop-rod 36 and stop 31. Then the stop 31 is pulled out, the pushrod 34 opens the valve 26, and as it is pushed open through the medium of the arms 28 and roclc-shaft 27 the other valve 26 at the other side of the instrument is pulled open by one and the same stop 31.
Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new therein, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-
1. In a reed-organ, the combination with the reed-board and reed-cells of a metallic resonatorlocated beneath the said reed-board and reed-cells and having communication with the latter, the resonator being semicircular in cross-section and of a width approximately equal to that of the reed-board and connected or secured to the reed-board along its upper longitudinal edges.
2. In a reed-organ, the combination with the wind-trunks or chimneys leading to the bellows of resonators connected therewith, stop-controlled valves at each end of the resonator opening directly into the wind-trunks and means for operating said valves simultaneously by one stop consisting of a rockshaft and connections between said shaft and the valves together with connections operated by the stop.
3. In a reed-organ, the combination with the wind-trunks or chimneys located on each side of the instrument and leading to the bellows, ofresonators connected therewith, stopcontrolled valves also located on each side of the instrument, a rock-shaft and connections with the valves, a stop, a push-rod for opening one of the valves, and operating connections between the push-rod and the stop whereby when one valve is pushed open the other valve is simultaneously pulled open.
In testimony whereof I aflix my signature in presence of two witnesses.
ROBERT J. BENNETT.
