AURION VILA CHEVERS, OF BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS.

MUSICAL PIPE.

Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented Mar. 15, 1910.

Application filed March 29, 1909. Serial No. 486,484.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, AURION VILA CHE- vnns, of Boston, in the county of Suffolk and State of Massachusetts, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Musical Pipes, of which the following is a specification;

This invention has for its object to produce a novel pipe, adapted for use as a musical instrument and capable for adaptation to use as a tobacco pipe.

The invention consists in various features by which the functions above indicated are secured and by which the device is particularly and peculiarly adapted for the ends sought.

My invention will be more fully described in the specification which follows and in the drawings which form a part thereof, in which drawings I have shown embodiments of my invention illustrative of the principles thereof.

Throughout specification and drawing, like reference letters are used to indicate corresponding parts, and in the drawings: Figure 1 is a side view of a pipe embodying my invention, adapted for smoking. Fig. 2 is a similar view partly in section. Fig. 3 is a view of a pipe having another form of mouth-piece and adapted for use as a musical instrument. Fig. 4 is a View similar to Fig. 3, and showing a telescopic extension applied to the bowl of the pipe. Fig. 5 is a side View, showing the pipe adapted for use as a musical instrument and provided with a mechanical air-supplying device. Fig. 6 shows a modification of the plug support shown in the preceding figures. Fig. 7 is a plan view of the pipe with a bifurcated stem for twoousers. Fig. 8 shows the pipe with an elongated flexible stem. Fig. 9 shows the pipe with a different mechanical air-supplying device. Fig. 10 shows a modification in the plug. Flg. 11 shows a modified form of the bowl.

B is a bowl open at both ends, but having a contracted opening C at the inner end, to one side of which a curved tubular stem A is joined, said stem being preferably made round at-its outer portion, and having a flattened end arranged at an angle to the bowl, so that a current of air issuing from the stem will flow across the opening C and cause a musical sound, when the plug hereinafter mentioned is not in place.

S is a mouth-piece such as is employed in smoking pipes.

F is a frame having clamping clips f adapted to embrace and slide on the curved stem A. The frame F is extended at G to form a spring arm which supports a plug D, adapted to close the opening C when the pipe is used for smoking. The plug D is preferably recessed at d to form a cavity in which nicotin will be trapped, and provided with an inclined opening or duct d at its inner end which connects the interior of the bowl with the duct of the stem, when the plug is in place, as shown in Fig. 2.

X (Figs. 3, 4t and 11) is a terminal piece on the stem, adapted for application to a nostril, and having a flange formed to bear on the margin of the nostril to form an air tight joint.

When used as a musical pipe, an extension composed of telescoping sections M, N, may be applied to the bowl B for increasing the length of the column of air placed under vibration, so that the diiferent tones may be produced by varying the length of the ex tension to produce a trombone effect.

'When the device is used as a musical pipe, the air may be supplied by the lungs of the operator, the mouth-piece being applied to one of the nostrils, or by an air pump connected with the stem by a flexible tube R, as indicated in Figs. 5 and 9.

In Fig. 5, H represents an elastic bulb which may be compressed to force air into a reservoir H communicating with the tube R. In Fig. 9, H represents a bellows connected with the tube R. The mouth-piece S may be applied at one end of the flexible tube R, as shown in Fig. 8, so that the mouth-piece may be applied to a nostril of the operator.

In Fig. 6 I have indicated a modified form of the plug support at G, said support being hinged to the stem A.

The stem may be bifurcated, as shown at A A in Fig. 7, for the use of two operators.

The plug D may be engaged with the bowl B by other means than the frame F, and may be secured by friction, a screw thread connection, or otherwise (see Fig. 10).

Although the instrument may be made of any suitable material, I find that it may be conventionally formed of metal, and I have indicated in Fig. 11 a construction of the bowl which I find satisfactory. In this the bowl B, which is produced from a metal tube, is reduced or tapered at 7), and has a stiffened dished flange to which the stem A may be soldered.

\Vhen the device is used as a musical instrument, the plug D is opened, as shown in Figs. 8, 4, 5 and 8, 9, 11, and air is forced through the .stem A from the lungs or from a pump. This gives a whistling effect. The plug D being angularly disposed at the end of the pipe, acts as a deflector or resonator, modifying the normal sound of the instrument. To vary the sound of the instrument, the plug D may be ad anced toward the lower opening of the pipe by sliding the frame F longitudinally along the stem A.

Vhen it is desired to use the device as a tobacco pipe, the plug D is closed over the opening C, in which position the inner end of the stem A lies above the bottom of the cavity D. The pipe may be readily cleaned by removing the plug D.

A current of air, forced through the stem A and passing across the opening G, produces amusical tone or whistle, theaction being similar to that of a current of air blown across the mouth or neckof a bottle.

The tone may be controlled or varied to produce any desired series of musical notes in playing a tune, by inserting the mouth of the bowl between the lips of the player, so'that the bowl constitutes an extension of the vocal cavity, and forcing air through the stem to operate the whistle. The player, by varying the form of vocal cavity, is enabled to vary the pitch of the musical tone produced, a range of two or more octaves being obtainable in this way. Air may be forced through the stem by the lungs of the player, the-stem being applied to one of the nostrils; or the air pressure may be producedby mechanical means such as those shown in and 9, or by the-lungs of an assistant, an elongated stem being employed, as shown in Fig. 8.

I claim:

1. A musical device, comprising a bowl open at its outer end and having a contracted opening at its inner end, and a tubular stem secured to said inner end and terminating at one side of said opening, and arranged to direct a current of air across the said opening to produce a sound, the bowl being adapted to form an extension of the vocal cavity of the operators mouth, whereby musical notes may be produced.
