STEIN GED MUSICAL INSTRUMENT.

Application filed December 14, 1908.

provement. Fig. 2 is a side view. Fig. 3

is a section on the line of 1.

The present embodiment of the invention comprises a neck 1, with a tail piece 2, and a bridge 3, all of which are supported upon a resonant body to be presently described.

The nee is provided with the usual head 4, and strings extend from the head to the tail piece, passing over the bridge.

The resonant body, before mentioned, is substantially circular in cross section, and gradually increases in size from one end to the other, the larger end being provided with a bell 6, while the smaller end is provided with a sound box 7, upon which is mounted the bridge. The resonant body extends from the sound box outwardly thence roarwardly substantially parallel to the tail piece, then transversely, and substantially parallel with the tail piece to a point beyond the bridge, where the said body crosses below the strings and the finger board and is then bent upwardly and gradually merged into the bell which is arranged above the linger board as clearly shown in Fig. 1. The tail piece is connected with a button 7, on the transverse portion of the resonant body, and chin rest 8 may be connected with the body in proper position to receive the chin of the erformer. The fin er board is supported liy the neck, which is connected to the resonant body by braces 9, 1.0, and 11.

The bridge 3, is mounted on a spring plate 13, which plate is arranged transversely of the bridge as shown in Fig. 2, the bridge being slotted for receiving the spring and the ends of the spring are received in slots in the arms 14 of a bracket 15, which bracket is Specification oi Letters Patent.

Patented May 11, 1909.

Serial N0. 67,439.

shaped to fit the periphery of the sound box, and may be secured thereto by screws 16. The bridge is secured to the spring by soldering or in any other suitable manner.

A side of the sound box is engaged by the angular portion 18 of a lever 19, which is pivoted to an arm 20, integral with the bridge and extending from one corner thereof. A set screw is threaded through the upper end of the lever 19, and rotatably connected with "he arm 20.

The object of the above construction is to adjust the force with which the arm engages the sound box, and to compensate for wear between the end of the arm and the box.

"il hile l have shown and described the improvement embodied in an instrument of the violin type, it is evident that it might be embodied with equal facility in instruments of the guitar or mandolin type.

I claim:

1. In a device of the class described a hollow resonant body gradually increasing in cross section from one end to the other, the smaller end being provided with a sound box, a bridge supported by tile sound box and having an arm extending therefrom alongside a side of the sound b= a lever hinged to the arm and having an angular portion engaging the sound box side, means for adjusting the position of the lover with respect to the sound box, tail piece supported by the body, a n ck supported by the body on the opposite side of the body from the tail piece, and strings conncctingthe tail piece and neck and resting upon the bridge.

2. A device of the class described comprising a hollow resonant body gradually increasing in cross section from one end to the other, a sound box at the smaller and of the resonant body, a bridge supported by the sound box and provided with an extending portion engaging a side of the sound box, means for adjusting the extended portion with respect to the sound box, a tail piece and a neck s pported by the body on opposite sides of the bridge and strings connecting the neck and the tail piece and resting upon the bridge.
