"LOW PRICED PIANOFORTES [...] It is right, however, to state at the same time, that the highly respectable house of D'Almaine and Co. have, from even a period before our first allusion to the subject, been making movements towards a popularisation of the pianoforte. An upright instrument of elegant structure in rosewood, with metallic plate, and a keyboard extending to 6 1/4 octaves, has for several years been made by them, at thirty guineas. Since the end of last year, the price of this instrument, for the excellence of which we have seen high testimonies, has been reduced to twenty-five guineas. We find that our friend Mr Purdie of Edinburgh makes similar instruments at the same price. D'Almaine and Co. have even succeeded in producing instruments in fine cases, which they will be able to offer at twenty guineas, or, if successful with a contemplated substitute for ivory, at twenty pounds, the latter being the price which we have ideally set up as that which would secure a great extension of the use of the instrument among the middle classes of the people."

DAY Francis  

Patent of 1829 : "To Francis Day, of the Poultry, in the city of London, optician, and Auguste Munch, of the same place, mechanic, in consequence of a communication made to them by a certain foreigner residing abroad, and improvements by themselves, for an invention of certain improvements on musical instruments.—[Sealed 19th June, 1829.]
This invention applies to wind musical instruments of the organ kind, or organised piano-forte, and like the invention which forms the subject of the preceding patent, consists in the adaptation of metallic spring tongues like the tongue of a Jew's harp, which, by their vibrations, give out musical tones.
The Patentees describe the invention as a new substitute for the pipes of an organ forming a stop, that is, an additional series of notes on the organ technically denominated a stop.
These metallic tongues have been applied to organs and other wind musical instruments in Germany, and are found to produce very fine and rich effects of tone: it is for the adaptation of them to similar musical instruments in England that the present patent is obtained.
Over the aperture of the wind chest in place of one of the ordinary organ pipes, a wooden box is fixed, the under part of which box has a metallic plate with a long slot or opening in it suited to receive the metallic tongue or spring,from the vibrations of which the musical tone or note is to be produced. The upper part of this box is open for the free discharge of the sound; but in order to effect variable modulations of tone, a wooden flap or valve is placed upon the top of the box, by means of which the open end can be more or less closed, as may be desired.
The tongue or sonorous spring may be flat, and fastened by its root to the metallic plate, allowing it to vibrate in the slot or lower aperture of the box, or it may be of a bent form, its root or fulcrum being fixed, and its spring part allowed to play freely in the aperture. The metal at the vibratory end of the tongue should be thicker than at the root for emitting grave notes, but of thinner substance for high notes. The wooden valve at top of the box may be raised or depressed by a fod connected to a pedal, or by any other means; or the valve may be formed by a slider instead of a flap, if preferred; and the box itself may be square, or of any other convenient form.

 

 

'Lieutenant on half pay of the eleventh regiment of foot' and 'opticien'


(continuation)

A series of these boxes with metallic tongues or springs below, and valves above, are to be mounted over the several apertures of the wind chest of a common organ, or other similarly constructed instrument, and the keys of the instrument being as usual connected by levers, with valves to the-apertures of the wind chest, those apertures are opened by the depression of the keys, as the fingers of the performer act upon them; and hence the wind, in passing from the chest through the lower apertures of the boxes, puts the tongues into a state of vibration, producing the notes or musical tones required.

It is obvious that this simple contrivance of adapting musical springs or metallic tongues to organs, instead of pipes of large magnitude, will admit of the construction of very powerful musical instruments of small dimensions compared to ordinary organs; and as the mechanism by which organs are usually worked, or as it is more technically called played, is well understood, and of course admit of some variety in construction, it is not intended by the Patentees to limit themselves to any particular arrangement of mechanism. They therefore define the claim of exclusive right of adaptation in the following words : — The formation of a new substitute or stop for the pipes of an organ by the combining of metal tongues or springs, with wooden boxes fitted with regulators or modulators of the tone; also the application of pallets or valves to the tops of the said boxes, and the remova thereof from the insides of the wind chests of the organ, to which this latter form of our new stop may be applied; and also the manner of raising or lifting the said regulating pallets or valves. — [Inrolled in the lnrolment Office, December, 1829.]" The London Journal of Arts and Sciences, and Repertory of ..., Volume 9, 1834, p. 197

DODD Edward  

Patent of 1827 : "To EDWARD Donn, of Berwick Street, Soho, in the county of Middlesex, musical instrument maker, for his invention of certain improvements on piano-fortes. [Sealed 26th July, 1827.]
IT may be thought a very extraordinary description of this invention to say it is something about placing the sound board of a piano-forte upon ribs, leaving hollow spaces under it, and extending the dimensions of the sound board an inch or two at the base part: yet, such is the vague and defective explanation which the specification gives of this invention, that we really are unable to afford a more lucid explanation of its construction, or to give our readers any further clue to the object intended by the patentee, or to the claim of invention or novelty which he may consider himself to be the author of.
A representation is given of the kind of hammer which is employed to strike the strings; the form is the same as usual ; but the outer piece of leather, which wraps round the point of the hammer, is to be glued at one end to the wood, and at the other end made fast by a small clamp. piece and screw. The object of this is not expressed, but we presume that the outer piece of leather, being connected to the end of the hammer in this way, instead of attaching it by glue, will cause the blow given by the hammer upon the string to be softer, and produce a less wireyrtone than the old construction of hammer, and also admit of the leather being tightened up, if it should become loose by wean—[Inrolled in the Inrolment Ofice, January, 1828.]" Newton's London Journal of Arts and Sciences, 1831, p. 212 - see also 'La garniture de marteaux'
