VALVED WIND MUSICAL INSTRUMENT.

Specification of Letters Patent.

:atented April 2, 1907,

Application filed December 4,1905. Serial No, 290.2 '79.

To all whont it may concern.-

Be it known that I, CHARLES G. CONN, citizen of the United States, residing at Elkhart, in the county of Elkhart, in the State of Indiana, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Valved Wind Musical Instruments, of which the following is a specification.

lVhile my invention is applicable to all valved wind musical instruments, I will for the purpose of this case describe and illustrate it in connection with a cornet.

The usual manner of constructing cornets is to introduce the wind into the third valve or valve nearest to the bell by means of a bend in the mouth-pipe which when the valve is depressed gives the wind-column a turn in conducting it into the third-valve slide that mufl'les the tone and is detrimental to any note produced when the third valve is used.

In my present invention I have introduced the wind into the third valve or valve nearest the bell in 'such manner that when the valve is depressed the direction of the wind is not changed and no turn is made to project it into the third-valve slide. Consequently the tone is not muted or mufiled in any way.

In the drawings, Figure 1 is a side elevation of a cornet embodying my invention. F ig. 2 is a detail bottom plan view, parts being in section, at the intersection of the airpassage; and Figs. 3 and 4 are vertical central sections of the third valve, parts being broken away, showing the valve-plunger respectively in open and in depressed positions.

In Fig. 1 I have indicated by the shaded portions the course of the wind during the open-tone position of the valve.

1 represents the bell of the instrument, which leads by bell-pipe 1 into the first or one outside valve 2. The opposed walls of the valves are connected by means of the short connections 3 and 4, approximately in ali'nement with oneanother, whereby an ap proximately straight wind-passage through the valves to the bell-pipe is secured when the valves are in their open positions.

Connected to the front face of the third or other outside valve-casing or the face opposite that from which the outlet-pipe 4 leads is the usual valve-slide 7, the two ends of which approximately aline with said outletpipe 4, the outlet-pipe being positioned in a1 plane between the two ends of the valves 1 e.

Leading from the direction of the mouthpiece into the side of the third valve between the outlet-pipe and the valve-slide is the mouth-pipe 5, which registers with a port in the valve-plunger, curved to connect the mouth-pipe with the valve-slide 7 or which registers with an upwardly and rearwardly turned. port in the valve-plunger to connect it with the outlet-pipe 4. When the mouthpipe is connected with the valve-slide 7, a

downwardly-inclined port connects the valveslide with the outlet-pipe 4. 9 is the slide for the first valve 2. It will be noticed that the wind from the mouth-pipe passes into and through the valve 6, thence into the short pipe 4 through the valve 8, thence into the short pipe 3 into the first valve 2, from whence it is discharged into the bell. I/Vhe'n the third valve is depressed, the wind passes from the mouth pipe through the third valve into the valve-.slide 7, thence again through the third valve through the connections 3 and 4 and the second valve 8 and into the first valve 2. From'thence it is discharged into the bell.

From the description and the drawings it will be noticed, as above stated, that I have introduced the wind into the third valve of the cornet and that when the valve is depressed no return-bend is made to direct the wind into the third-valve slide, the tone consequently being not muted or mufiled. I thus out out or eliminate the return-bend in the wind-passage, which has been necessary in cornets heretofore constructed with the mouth-pipe leading into the third valve when the valve is in-one position.

By the terms first valve, second valve, and third valve I am to be understood as meaning the position of these valves from the mouthpiece.

Having now described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is

1. A valved wind musical instrument comprising three valves, a bell-pipe connected to one of the outside valves, connections be tween the valves whereby the wind passes successively through the valves to the bellpipe, a valveslide on the other outside valve, and a mouth-pipe leading into this latter outside valve from a direction to cause no additional return-bends in either position of the plunger of this latter valve.

2. A valved wind musical instrument, comprising three valves, a bell-pipe leading from the bell, of a valve-slide connected to the side of the valve nearest the bell, an outletpipe leading from the opposite side of the said valve and connected to the intermediate valve, a pipe connecting the valve farthest from the bell and the intermediate valve, a bell-pipe connected to the valve farthest from the bell, and a mouth-pipe leading into the valve nearest the bell between the valveslide thereof and the outlet-pipe, from a direction to produce the same number of return-bends in both positions of the valve.

The foregoing specification signed, at Ellihart, Indiana, this 25th. day of November,

CHARLES G. CONN In presence of" MARGARET E. STALER, ZENA GARL.
