Title
(EN) A DEVICE FOR FACILITATING THE PLAYING OF STRING INSTRUMENTS
(FR) DISPOSITIF FACILITANT L'UTILISATION D'INSTRUMENTS A CORDES
Abstract
(EN)
A device for facilitating the playing of stringed instruments comprises a stand (6) with two lateral pieces (7, 7') between which is arranged a pressure plate (5) with a length which is larger than the distance between at least three crossbars (3) on a neck of the instrument, and a width that is larger than the distance between maximally separated strings (2). On its underside, the pressure plate has protruding abutment elements (12), the plate being on one hand reciprocally displaceable relative to the stand, and on the other hand being capable of being pressed down against the force of springs (10) in the direction of said neck (1) in order to activate a combination of transmission means (5) included in the stand by a desired, corresponding combination of abutment elements, said transmission means having the purpose of stretching strings against said crossbars (3), so that the strings deliver a desired chord.
(FR)
Un dispositif, qui facilite l'utilisation d'instruments à cordes, comprend une base (6) dotée de deux parois latérales (7, 7') entre lesquelles est disposée une plaque de pression (5), dont la longueur dépasse la distance séparant au moins trois frettes (3) placées sur le manche de l'instrument et dont la largeur dépasse la distance séparant les cordes les plus éloignées (2). Sur sa face inférieure, cette plaque de pression présente des butées (12) en saillie. D'une part, cette plaque est mobile par rapport à la base et d'autre part, on peut la comprimer vers le bas et vers le manche (1), à l'encontre de la force exercée par des ressorts (10), pour activer une combinaison de dispositifs de transmission (5), trouvant place dans la base, par l'intermédiaire d'une combinaison correspondante souhaitée de butées. Ces dispositifs de transmission ont pour objet de tendre les cordes sur les frettes (3) afin qu'elles produisent un accord souhaité.
