Abstract

The system for fastening and tuning electric guitar strings comprises a clamp for the free ends of the strings that is mounted on the neck end at a right angle to the neck surface and a machine for tensioning and tuning strings that is arranged behind a bridge. The strings are tensioned with the aid of screws that pull special brackets with the strings passed therethrough to the rear wall of the machine. The brackets carry out reciprocating motion only, while rotational motion is limited by the lid of the machine and the surface of the musical instrument body, thereby making it possible to lighten the machine structure. The system makes it possible to reduce the size of the musical instrument and does not require the use of special nonstandard strings.

Description

DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION "SYSTEM SETTINGS AND ATTACH STRINGS ELEKTPOGITAPY"

TECHNICAL FIELD.

fixing system settings and electric strings (invention) is designed for use in any power tools with the whole string (not hollow) casing and metal strings. The most common examples of such instruments are electric guitar and bass guitar, less popular - and elektroskipka elektroviolonchel, other types of stringed instruments in the embodiment with solid body sound elektrousileniem presents much less frequently.

Background of the Invention.

Currently, the most prevalent traditional system of fixing and tuning the strings using pegs on which is wound the free end of the string, and the stand in the holes which is fixed the end of the string with a metal washer. Colca arranged on the neck end, and support - on the tool body. Holes stand diameter less washers fixed at one end of the string, thus the string is threaded into the opening free end and pulling through the washer is fixed. Link to source of information about Kolk: http: //en.wikipedia.orα/wiki/Machine head refer to the source of information stand: http: //en.wikipedia.orα/wiki/Stoptail bridαe

A disadvantage of strings of traditional fastening system, and its main difference from the invention is the necessity of manufacturing on the fretboard musical instrument so-called "rolovy" on which pegs are arranged. Availability on the fingerboard "golovy" leads to an increase in the size of a musical instrument and also complicates the process of making the bar.

The closest analogue of the invention is to secure the system and setting Steipberger brand strings. In this system stand located

SUBSTITUTE SHEET (RULE 26) at the end of the neck and the tuning system - on the tool body (i.e., on the contrary, compared with the conventional system). In this case, the string is fixed with washers both on a stand, and the system configuration. Link to source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steinberqer main disadvantage string fastening and adjustment system Steipberger brand and differentiate it from the invention is the need to manufacture special non-standard fixed-length string and washers on both ends. Also, it is necessary to note the presence of an all-metal body in string tuning system Steipberger that leads to complication and weighting structure.

DISCLOSURE OF THE INVENTION.

Inventions task - to ensure the installation is secure and standard metal strings on a musical instrument with a solid body, and providing fine-tune the height of the strings sound. Thus, the technical result of the invention is to reduce the size and weight of the musical instrument, simplification of the manufacturing process of a musical instrument, as well as the ability to use standard metal strings with a washer at one end.

The invention is characterized by the following essential features:

• the presence of string clamp at the end of the neck, which allows the use of standard metal strings with a washer at one end, in contrast to the closest analogue (Steipberger system), where the strings are used specially manufactured with washers at both ends

• the clamping setting - on the end of the neck, so that the cord passing through the nip, is bent at an angle greater than 90 °, which ensures a reliable fixation of the string by increasing the frictional force (no analog)

• the absence of the frame (cover), which is screwed an adjustment of the side walls and the bottom, making it easier to manufacture (using simple stamping method) technology and to reduce the

2 SUBSTITUTE SHEET (RULE 26) the weight of the structure. The role of the sides and bottom of the housing itself performs a musical instrument, unlike Steipberger where the frame is a closed, monolithic structure

• skoboobraznaya simplified construction elements in which the end of the string is fastened with a washer and the adjustment screw is screwed. The design of these elements allows to apply for their manufacture simple punching method, unlike Steipberger, wherein like elements have a more complex structure.

• adjusting screws are of the same diameter as the screws used in the clip for the string at the end of the bar, allowing a single Allen key for the string clamp and to adjust them. In addition, the adjustment screw has a slot that allows you to also produce strings setting using the materials at hand - a guitar pick, coins, etc. (No analogues)

Implementation of the invention.

Structurally, the present invention consists of the following elements:

1. Clip for strings at the end of the neck (Fig. 1). It consists of the following components:

1.1 The frame (FIG. 2)

1.2 Clamping elements (Fig. 3)

1.3 screws (Fig. 4)

2. The machine for tensioning and tuning the strings (Fig. 5). Mounted on top of the niches carried out in the tool body, behind the lower nut. Both attached to the end face and the upper surface of the housing. It consists of the following components:

2.1. The frame (cover) - has the shape of a corner, one side of which holes for tuning screws (Figure 6.).

Hole diameter - smaller than the diameter tuning screw heads. Party apertured cover is attached to the tool end, the other side - on the top of the upper housing recess. Thus, rotation of the string of fastening elements is limited on the one hand the tool body, on the other

3 SUBSTITUTE SHEET (RULE 26) hand - lid.

2.2. string fastening elements (FIG. 7). Skoboobraznuyu have a structure in one end element has a threaded hole into which the adjustment screw is screwed in the other end has a hole into which a string is passed. The width of the string fixing member corresponds to the depth of the niche, on which the machine is set to adjust the strings so that when rotating the tuning screw member does not rotate, and performs a reciprocating motion.

2.3. The adjustment screws (Fig. 8). Have the same diameter as the screws used in the clip for the string at the end of the neck, the head of Allen and propylene in the head slot. The working part of the screw passes freely through the hole in the frame, and then screwed into the string attachment member which is in the channel between the frame and the tool body.

On the photo (Fig. 9) shows a machine in the installed state with tensioned strings.

Installation string is as follows: the string is threaded into the opening at the end of the fastening member 2.2, which protrudes from the lid under 2.1, then on the neck between the threaded end of the clamping bed 1.1 and 1.2 presser member and is clamped by a screw 1.3. After that, the rotation of the screw height adjustment is carried out 2.3 surround strings.
