GARLAND William M.  

"Piano-forte Manufatory and Music Warehouse, Clumber Street, & May-Pole Yard, Nottingham. W. M. GARLAND, Piano-Forte Maker and Music Seller to His Grace the Duke of Rutland. Respectfully invites the attention of the Profession, and Public in general, to an improvement he has recently made in UPRIGHT PIANO-FORTES, by which the Touch remains the same when the Damper-Pedal is in use, as without. This has been a desideratum in this description of Instrument for Years, as its capability of expression depends in a great measure on the weight of Touch remaining the same under all circumstances (and for which Messrs. Collard have obtained a Patent in the Horizontal Instrument). The Touch of these Instruments is now equal to that of any that can be produced in the Trade, and entirely obviates the objection to the generality of Upright PianoFortes, namely—want of expression. There are several other advantages accruing from this Action, as a necessary consequence of the Construction, amongst which, its extreme durability is not the least prominent.
The Tone does not require a word of comment;—the SoundNess Of Materials, Durability Of Construction, Capability Of Staying In Tune, and. in fact, every thing requisite to constitute a good Piano-Forte, cannot be surpassed, and will be warranted in the most unequivocal manner.—Mr. Garland is induced to be thus explicit, in consequence of several instances having recently come under his notice of warranted Instruments having been returned as defective and inferior.
Besides the above, W. M. Garland has on Sale an extensive Assortment, consisting of SEMI-GRAND, MICHROCORDON, GRAND Square, and all other kinds of Piano-Fortes, by Broadwood, Tomkison, Collard, &c., and as his Instrument may be fairly tested against these, an opportunity is given of forming a correct judgment of their merits, and affording to the Purchaser a saving of from 15 to 25 per Cent.
Instruments of every description for Hire, and Repaired or Tuned in Town or Country; Bought, Sold, or taken in Exchange.
A NUMBER OF Second-hand piano-fortes - In thorough Repair, at very Reduced Prices.
Any Instrument Sold at this Warehouse exchanged within Six Months, if not approved.—Every other Article in the Music Trade on the lowest terms." The Midland counties railway companion. Also, guides to the London and ..., Midland counties railway, 1840, p. 113

Patent of 1836 : "To John Godwin, of Cumberland-street, Hackney-road, in the county of Middlesex, pianoforte-maker, for his invention of an improvement in the making or constructing of pianofortes.— [Sealed 8th March, 1836.] This invention is, arranging the strings of a pianoforte in two distinct series; that is, placing such of the strings as constitute about the first three octaves in parallel lines along the instrument, and the remainder of the strings in parallel fines at acute angles transversely of the former; the object being to afford, what the Patentee calls, a more open scale to the strings.
The strings are distended in the usual manner, but the frame and bridge of the upper series of strings must be about a quarter of an inch higher than that of the lower series; and the sounding board must be cut away, and supported by iron pins, at such parts as shall be required for letting the hammers through.
The advantages of this arrangement are, that the upper or treble strings can be made of greater length by being placed transversely, and consequently, their tones improved.
As this plan of arranging the strings applies to upright pianofortes, and to other denominations of such instruments, it is unnecessary to point out particularly the way in which such strings should be fixed, as that will depend in a great measure upon circumstances; and as to the striking parts, or what is called the action, such constructions may be employed with striking upward or downward, as may be desired, that constituting no part of the invention.—[lnrolled in the Inrolment Office, September, 1836.]" The London Journal of Arts and Sciences, and Repertory of Patent ..., Volume 14, William Newton, 1839, p. 14-15

FIRE

1825 - "Wednesday evening, about seven o'clock, a fire broke out in a verr extensive building, opposite to the Southampton Arms, Camden Town. The premises were the property of Mr. Gould, the pianoforte manufacturer, and were newly built, together with a smaller house adjoining. A very large and valuable stock of woods, of various kinds, had been removed to the premises a few days since, and business was to have been commenced there next week. Some workmen who had been employed in finishing the interior, had left but a short time, when flames were seen bursting from the ground floor window, and spreading with immense fury over the entire floor. Messengers were despatched to the different engine stations, and an ample supply of water was sonn turned on from the Hampstead water works, but even if all the London engines bad been on ike spot, it would have been impossible to prevent the entire destruction of the factory, so furious was the fire. In seven or eight minutes the whole premises were in one blaze, and in a short time after, nothing but the outside walls were left standing. The fire communicated to the private dwelling of Mr. Gould, and soon reduced it to the bare walls. The fire is said to have been caused by the workmen leaving some embers in a grate which they had used to heat their glue." The Examiner, 25/07/1825, p. 474

1847 - "MISCELLANEOUS. Testimonial To Mr. D'almaine.— Last week Mr. Mackinlay gave a dinner in Soho-square to a number of gentlemen connected with the musical profession, who had subscribed towards a testimonial which was presented on the occasion to Mr. D'Almaine, the eminent music publisher, on his retirement from business after a period of fifty years. The testimonial, which consisted of a very elegant candelabra, was presented by Sir George Smart, in a very neat address to Mr. D'Almaine, who acknowledged the honour any kindness conferred on him, in a very feeling manner. In returning thanks, after his health had been proposed, Sir Henry Bishop spoke in the warmest terms of Mr. D'Almaine's kindness to him from his earliest musical career; and he gave instances of the little acquaintance theatrical managers, in general, had with music; [...]; but on strong remonstrances being made, they were, at the eleventh hour, allowed to be sung. Need we add how universally popular these three fine compositions became. Professor Taylor, in proposing Mr. Mackinlav's health, paid him many compliments lor his taste and talent, and wished him prosperity as the worthy nephew of a worthy uncle. [...], and the evening passed off most delightfully; and. to Mr. D'Almaine, it must have beeu highly gratifying to leceive, at the hands of so many old friends and associates, such a memento of their respect and esteem." The Musical World, 10/04/1847, p. 241

Sold at Joseph EMERY in 1866, after the dead of D'ALMAINE and MACLINLAY.

BIO

"GREEN (John) is a native of Preston, in Lancashire, where his father still holds the office of treasurer to the corporation, and other respectable appointments. J. Green showed a talent for music early in life, and soon took a part in the amateur concerts of his native town. Becoming acquainted with the celebrated Yaniewitz, who at that time had just embarked in the music trade in Liverpool, Green was prevailed on by him to enter into partnership, and open another warehouse in Preston, which he did with much success; subsequently closing it only for the purpose of superintending the concern at Liverpool, on account of Yaniewitz having entered into some engagement in London. Green resided at Liverpool during six years, when he accepted proposals from Messrs. Clementi and Co., to travel for them in the musical line; in the course of which duties he became acquainted, in Ireland, with Logier, the author of the new system of musical tuition. From this time, Greencontinued Logier's most intimate friend, giving him assistance in forwarding his new plans of instruction, wherever he could be useful, and soon had the satisfaction to induce several professors from Edinburgh, Liverpool, &c. to go over to Dublin for the purpose of making themselves acquainted with Logier's improvements. When S. Webbe proposed to introduce the new system in London, Green, having retired from Clementi's on account of being unable to arrange a partnership, entered into an agreement with Logier, for the patent of the chiroplast, and the copy-right of all the works then published, or afterwards to be published, appertaining to his system. He also arranged and managed the affairs of Logier's first academy in Bedford-place, until the whole was in regular train, when his own academy was opened in Soho-square, where he still continues to teach according to Logier's principles. At the same place he has also established a depot for various ingenious inventions, viz.: the metronomes, or musical time-beaters, of Maelzel, to whom he has been appointed agent; secondly, for various descriptions of improved musical slates and metallic tablets; thirdly, for double pencils, (slate and black-lead) also corresponding obliterators, half of sponge and half india-rubber. As an author, Green's principal work is a translation, with copious additions, of Massimino's method of teaching singing in classes. He has further composed some ingenious vocal and instrumental music for learners, also several songs and glees." A Dictionary of Musicians, from the Earliest Ages to the Present ..., 1827, p. 296-297

BOOK

"The Royal Seraphine, a new musical Instrument, invented and manufactured only by J. Green, 33, Soho-Square. Those who are really desirous of receiving information regarding this extraordinary instrument will not consider this prospectus too long; to convey any adequate idea of it in few words is impossible. The sound is produced on a principle never before thus applied to musical purposes; the nearest approach to it, though at an immeasurable distance, being the Jew’s Harp, the musical Snuff Box, and a small Chinese instrument. It is but justice to acknowledge that the first idea of its application was communicated to Mr. Green at Manheim, in Germany. A baker, of a musical and mechanical turn, had worked some time in secret, and had made some progress in an instrument which he would allow no one to see: his death, however, occurred a few days before the visit of Mr. Green, who was permitted by the family to inspect the work, in which he discovered a very ingenious, but very rude attempt, to Produce musical sounds by means somewhat similar. Since that period more than seven years of uninterrupted perseverance and incessant labour have been required to per fect and combine all its advantages as now accomplished, and which will insure to the Seraphine a distinguished and permanent station in the catalogue of musical instruments. The Organ, from the grandeur of its effects, has ever been placed at the head of the list; but, its deep majestic tones being produced by pipes of very large dimensions, its enormous bulk prevents its being employed, except in large public buildings; and it is impossible, upon that principle, to construct an Organ of the desired depth of tone within the dimensions convenient for domestic purposes. It will be understood that the sound [...][...]" The Royal Seraphine, a New Musical Instrument, John Green, 1840

LONDON - "A horizontal piano-forte, by Mr. Greiner, termed, we suppose, a bi-chord grand, but which is in reality unlike any instrument hitherto made, calls for special remark. Its strings lie in two planes, slightly inclined to the horizontal, and to each other, and intersecting at the front end of. the instrument; their farther ends opening out into something like the shape of a trumpet. The idea of the inventor is, that this shape will throw the sound out horizontally, and make the instrument better heard than on the ordinary plan; but we cannot think that any advantage of this kind will compensate for the awkwardness of the form, and the difficulties attending its manufacture. A second novelty in this instrument is what the inventor calls the unison method of tuning. One wire forms the two strings of each note; it is looped at its two ends to two adjoining pins in the string-plate at the back of the instrument, and its centre is turned over a cylindrical stud at the front. This front stud is capable of being moved backwards and forwards by a screw, by which the two halves of the wire are tuned simultaneously. In order to adjust the two strings to a unison, the front cylindrical stud is moveable round its centre by means of a lever, which gives the power of tightening one half of the wire and slackening the other, until a perfect unison is obtained : of course this method of stringing is not applicable where three strings are used. A third novelty is in the action, called a repeating check. It is a means of producing the repeating power by a small tongue of leather attached to the check, and jointed, so as to move upwards with perfect ease, but to offer resistance to motion in the contrary direction. By this arrangement the hammer is allowed to rise without obstruction ; but when it tends to fall, it is held up by the leather tongue till the hopper engages, and thus the repetition is secured. This is one of the simplest contrivances for the purpose we have seen. Mr. Greiner also exhibits a model of a new method of stringing, by which two strings are made to vibrate by a blow given to one only, on the same principle as the synchronous vibrations of the two arms of a tuning fork." Newton's London Journal of Arts and Sciences, 1851, p. 33

LONDRES - "LE TROMBO-PIANO-FORTE, PAR M. GREINER (DE LONDRES). Cet instrument a bien la forme d'un 'piano. Il en a les accessoires, les touches en ivoire; mais voilà tout.
Pas de cordes, pas de table d'harmonie, et des conduits comme ceux du trombonne des instruments à vent, une construction analogue à celle du porte-voix, voilà ce qui le constitue. L'inventeur a cherché à appliquer à cette machine nouvelle le mécanisme du langage, l'action même de la langue. Au moyen de touches qui communiquent avec des tuyaux d'aspiration : ces tuyaux sont combinés de telle sorte que l'air qui est introduit dans cette espèce de tromnette dont on voit l'orifice sur le côté droit du dessin, vient produire les sons que l'on obtient des instruments à vent ordinaires. Si cet appareil peut réussir, on en comprend toute l'utilité. Ce serait ajouter au charme des instruments à vent la précision du piano; ce serait unir la sûreté des touches à la beauté des sons qui peuvent, en se prolongeant, donner à la musique toute l'expresion que la limitation bornée des touches ne saurait ajouter à l'arpège harmonieux du piano-forte. On a déjà, en France, fait faire de grands progrès, dans celle voie, aux piano-forte. Nous avons décritdans notre dernier numéro les efforts tentés avec succès par M. Debain sur son orgue; il n'y a plus de grandes difficultés à vaincre pour arriver à établir une corélalion harmonique entre les instruments à corde et les instruments à vent. Les procédés combinés de nos fabricants et de ceux de Londres, résoudront le problème, tant l'intérêt de ce beau travail consiste à donner à l'instrumenta touches un son qui ne soit pas limité."

(continuation)

LONDON - "We have a curious-looking instrument in the Grand Exhibition, by M. Greiner, professed to be constructed on the principles of the speaking-trumpet, and with an application for tuning the unison at one operation. There is much ingenuity displayed in this construction, but we do not perceive the advantage to be gained by the tone issuing from the sides of the instrument; and although it would be very desirable to tune the unisons as a single string, as it would obviously save one-half the labour, we are afraid it is not so effectual, but that it requires regulating; and as one wire will always stretch more than another, a tuning-pin to each string seems preferable. This instrument being the first of the kind made, the inventor will, no doubt, improve upon it."

LONDON - "Messrs. Greiner and Sandilands (3404) exhibit a new method of tuning the strings of the piano. The two or three strings forming the note are collected and held in a frame, which is moved forward or backward by a screw and nut, so arranged as to admit of great case and accuracy of adjustment. The different strings of the note are adjusted to each other by an additional apparatus for the purpose, and when this is efl‘ected the whole are timed to the reqnircd note by screwing the frame. The plan ma be etfective, but seems complicated and expensive, an experience is wanted to determine its utility. They also exhibit a new pedal piano, playing upon strings behind the performer, and acting by a plectrum, so as to sound without any blow being given. They have also other inventions in the action and framing, and they are awarded a Medal for novelty of invention."

This board is proposed to be made of hard wood, about a quarter of an inch in thickness, but rather thinner towards the base; it is to be fastened to the framing of the instrument, and made particularly firm and capable of sustaining the tension of the strings, as the bridge and rails for the hitch pins are to be affixed to it. This and the ordinary sound board are to be connected by blocks, so that they shall both vibrate together; and it is stated that the adaptation of this improvement to piano fortes, whether of the horizontal or upright kind, very greatly improves the strength and tone of the instrument." Journal of the Franklin Institute, Volume 12, 1828, p. 199 - Journal of the Franklin Institute, Volume 2, 1828, p. 421

GURNEY GOLDSWORTHY  

Patent of 1825 : "To Goldsworthy GURNEY, of Argyle Street, Hanover Square, in the County of Middlesex, Surgeon, for his Invention of an Improved Finger-keyed Musical Instrument, in the use of which, a performer is enabled ... to hold or prolong the notes, and to increase or modify the tone at pleasure.
| THE peculiar feature of novelty in this invention, is the adaptation of musical glasses to a piano-forte, or other keyed instrument instead of strings. The patentee proposes to place within the case of a cabinet piano-forte a
series of glass tubes of different lengths, in vertical positions; or glass goblets, or bells of glass, within the case of a grand or square piano-forte, in such situations as may be most convenient for the purpose of being played upon aecording to the form of the instrument, and to pass a ribbon or band something similar to a violin bow, over some parts of the surfaces of these glass vessels, in order to effect a vibration, and cause the glass to produce a musical sound. (see next )

 

 

'Musical Instrument Maker' ca. 1825


(continuation)

The construction of these improved instruments may be varied according to circumstances, and which is in some measure left to the ingenuity of the manufacturer, the invention consisting in the employment of glass vessels for the production of sound, instead of strings, in a musical instrument with keys, upon the plan of a piano-forte. The patentee, has however, set out a certain disposition of mechanism to effect the object, and upon which plan an instrument has been constructed which is said to produce musical notes of a peculiar and exquisitely melodious quality.
