FREDERICK GRETSCH, OF BROOKLYN, NEW YORK.

. REED HOLDER.

Application filed March 22, 1926. Serial No. 96,619.

This invention relates to a holder for reeds and particularly to an improved holder especially designed for saxophone reeds and has for an object to provide a construction wherein the reeds are protected when carried in a pocket or when not in use.

Another object of the invention is to pro-' vide a reed holder wherein a comparatively stiff structure is provided with flexible means for holding the reeds against the stilt" structure and in that way not only support and protect the reeds but hold the same againstaccidental injury by twisting or bending.

A still further object, more specifically, is to provide a holder for saxophone reeds wherein a series of pockets are provided arranged in pairs and associated together in such a manner that the flat sides of opposite reeds will be juXtaposit-ioned and thereby assist in maintaining the flexible part of the reeds in correct position.

In the accompanying drawing Figure 1 is a perspective view of a holder, disclosing an embodiment of the invention.

Figure 2 is a view similar to Figure 1 but with the binding strap loosened and the covering lid or section open.

Figure 3 is a view similar to Figure 2 but showing the reed carrying structure swung to an outer position.

Figure 4: is a sectional view through liigure 1, approximately on line 44.

Figure 5 is an enlarged sectional view through Figure 2, approximately on line Referring to the accompanying drawing "by numerals, 1 indicates what may be termed a body which'is made from stilt material, as for instance, a stiff piece of leather or imitation leather and connected to this body is a member 2 which may be cloth, leather or other material, said member 2 being folded upon itself so that the member will straddle r body 1 as illustrated in Figure -l-. This member is secured to body 1 by lines of stitching 3, l, 5 and 6 whereby there are provided pockets 7, 8 and 9 on each side of the body 1 (Figure It is, of course, evident that two pieces of leather or other material could be stitched in place to make the pockets 7 to 9 inclusive but preferably one piece is used as it may be readily bent around the inner end of body 1 as shown in Figure 4:

and thereby-provide a better protection for the flexible ends of the various reeds.

l/Vhen the material 9- is first stitched in place, it lies flatwise against the body 1 but whenthe various reeds 10 are insertechthey will stretch to a certain extent then'iaterial 2 and thereby cause the material to substantially contact with the reed for the full length of the insertion and in that way snugly hold the reed against the body 1 which is comparatively thick and stiff. By providing pockets on each side of the body 1,r-'-the two reeds in any set of pockets will reinforce each other and assist the body 1 and associated parts in preventing accidental bending of the reeds and, consequently, accidental injury. p

In order to afford additional protection to all parts of the reed and to make a desirable container or package, a cover 11 is provided having a body section 12 and a reed section 13. A portion 14 of the body section 12 is secured to the member 2 adjacent the point that it overlaps the body 1. An elastic or other strap 15 is secured to section 12 by adhesive or otherwise and the overlapped ends 16 thereof are covered with a covering or finishing strip 17.

When the device is in use and it is desired to remove one or more of the reeds, the parts are moved to substantially the position shown in Figure 3. After the reed has been removed, body 1 and associated parts are folded back to the position shown in Figure 2 and then the reed 13 swung downwardly and finally the retaining strap 15 applied as shown in Figure 1. The holder may then be placed in the pocket or stored wherever desired and the reeds remaining therein held against injury but ready for quick removal Whenever desired.

What I claim is:

'1. A saxophone reed holder comprising a body formed from a piece of stifi material, a flexible member mounted on said body and extending from near the center thereof down to and over one end and back to near the center at the opposite side, a series of lines of stitching for securing said member to the body so as to divide the member into a series of pockets, the pockets on one side of the body being in line with the pockets on the opposite side, each pocket being adapted to receive a reed with the flat side contacting with the body whereby the reeds in the various pockets will reinforce each other, and a covering structure for covering said body, the means forming the pockets and the reeds, said covering structure rotecting the exposed ends of said reeds and reintorcing said body for its full length.

2. A holder for saxophone reeds coinprising a comparatively still body, means presenting a flexible sheet arranged with a portion on each side oi" the body, each, portion extending from one end ot the body toward the opposite end, a series of stitching extending through both of said flexible portions and the body :tor dividing both of the time .ible portions so that in connection with the body a series of tapering pockets will be provided on each side of the body, the pockets being arranged in pairs so that when reeds are placed in the pockets the reeds on oppe- 30 site sides of the body will act as stiffening means tor each other.

2). A saxophone reed holder comprising a body formed from a piece of stift' material,

a flexible member mounted on said body and 2 to the bod so as to divide the flexible inem- 30 her into a series of pockets, the pockets on one side of the body being in line with the pockets on the opposite side, each pocket beingadapted to receive a reed with the flat side contacting with the body whereby the 35 reeds in the various pockets will reinforce each other.
