'IVIUSIC-HOLDER.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent N 0. 759,048, dated May 3, 190%.

- Application filed October 10, 1903. Serial NO- 176,478. (Nomodcll) tion.

This invention relates to a musicholder adapted for application to the piccolo, flute, life, and other horizontal musical instruments; and it consists in a peculiar construction of the same, as hereinafter fully described and claimed.

In the description of the said invention which follows reference is made to the accon1- pan ying drawings, forming a part hereof, and in which Figure 1 is a view illustrating the invention in use, and Fig. 2 an enlarged perspective view of the same.

Referring to the drawings, 1 represents a piccolo.

The music-holder consists of an open circular hand or clamp 2, the separated ends of which are made parallel with a diainetrical line and provided with a tightening-screw 3. To the outside of one of the ends of the clamp 2 is fastened a rod A, to the end of which an ordinary music-rest 5 is adjustably and removably connected. In a similar position on the other end of the clamp is secured a rod which terminates in a flattened ring 6, adapted for application to the chin of the player, with which it is pressed into contact to form a rest. 7 is another rod pivoted to the tighteningscrew 3 and terminating in a ring 9, through which the left thumb of the player is inserted to connect the hand of the player with the instrument.

The ring 2 is clamped on the piccolo by means of the tightening-screw 3, but not so tightly as to prevent a slight pivotal movement of the thumb-piece, which in most cases is required.

I claim as my-invention 1. In a music-holder, the combination of a clamp-ring, a chin-support,and athulnb-piece, substantially as, and for the purpose specilied.

2. In a music-holder, the combination of an open clampaing, a music-rest secured to one end of the clamp-ring, a chin-rest attached to the other end of the said ring, and a tightening-screw for the clamp-ring, S1Ill)SlitLI1tl2tll 'tlS specified.

3. In a music-holder, the combination of an open clamp-ring, a music-rest secured to one end of the clamp-ring, a chin-restattachcd to the other end of the ring, a tightening-screw for the clamp-ring, and a thumb-piece pivoted to the said tightming-screw, substantially as specified.
