LONDON - "A bichord grand, made by Messrs. Towns and Packer, has the power of transposing through a range of four semitones above or below the original key. It has, for this purpose, an arrangement for shifting the key-board and action in a lateral direction. This is the original way in which the transposing piano-forte was made.

TOWNS & PACKER (*1841)(*1843)(*1849), see also TOWNS

  "MESSRS. TOWNS & PACKERS, 20, OXFORD STREET.—HORIZONTAL SEMI-GRAND TRANSPOSING PIANOFORTE.—To transpose Music by semitonic progression two whole tones higher or lower than the original Scale or Key in which it was composed, for the accommodation of Singers. Its novelty is attributable to the introduction of a power by which the key-board is moved for the purposes of transposition, and its superiority is the fact that the tone and touch are not in the least affected by the use of this moving power. This Instrument has the repetition touch so much approved of by the Profession in the Grand Pianofortes." Official descriptive and illustrated catalogue of the Great exhibition 1851, p. 29

"MR. WALTER PHILLIPS, PIANOFORTE SHOW-ROOMS, HIGH STREET, PUTNEY. - THERE is no branch, of artistic culture which has made more rapid and gratifying progress in recent years than the study of music, undoubtedly facilitated by the advantageous terms upon which instruments of the highest quality can now be obtained by purchasers on an equitable system of deferred payments. In connection with this subject, attention is directed to the well-known establishment of Mr. Walter Phillips, whose pianoforte and music warehouse, High Street, Putney, presents many features of more than ordinary interest. The business was established by this gentleman in 1881, and has since the period of its foundation enjoyed a justly merited distinction as one of the leading houses in the suburban districts of the metropolis. The establishment is of handsome and commanding proportions, presenting a double frontage to the street, and containing spacious show-rooms, both on the ground floor and in the upper portion of the building. These apartments are fully stocked with a splendid assortment of instruments by all the most celebrated English and foreign manufacturers of high-class pianos, American organs, &c., selected with experienced skill especially for this trade, and unequalled in sound and reliable make, brilliancy of tone, and perfection of touch, combined with elegant modern designs and finished workmanship. In this class of instrument Mr. Phillips shows a very high-class “special new model” piano, which he guarantees for ten years, and which is justly claimed as the best and cheapest semi-cottage piano now before the public. Mr. Phillips is the pioneer of a novel system registered as the “Royal Road to Purchase,” by which high-class pianos by Collard, Brinsmead, Bechstein, Erard, Hopkinson, Broadwood, &c., are supplied at unusually low prices for cash, and, moreover, these cash prices can be extended over one, two, or three years without losing any part of the cash discount, or incurring any other additional expense, beyond a nominal charge of one shilling per week for the hire of the instrument, which is payable until the purchase is completed. This system has now been in successful operation for some years, and has resulted in a marvellous increase in the number of instruments sold on these terms by Mr. Phillips, who, it is satisfactory to note, relies chiefly on the recommendations of his customers, and on the genuineness of the instruments supplied, for the continuation of the conspicuous success of his novel and original system of purchase.

It may be added that the old form of purchase, generally known as the three-years system has practically ceased to exist in those neighbourhoods in which the “Royal Road to Purchase” has been introduced. It is satisfactory to note that this ably conducted business is steadily growing in popular favour with all sections of residents in London and the suburbs, and that Mr. Phillips’ consistent efforts in catering for the requirements of the musical public have been fully appreciated and justly awarded a brilliant and continued success."

DIAPHONIC PIANO-FORTE.

1824 - "THE DIAPHONICON.
Among the inventions and improvements of musical instruments, it was only the other day that we heard one, to which the above name lias been given, at the rooms of Mr. Pinnock, the patentee of this fine and powerful instrument. The Specification gives the following statement:—

The Diaphonicon apparatus is so placed that the interior flexible substances they are covered with may receive the vibrations from the strings when sounded, aided by the sound-boards; aud, by reverberating them between the two flexible surfaces, and through the agency of the columns of air therein interposed, greatly improve the quantity of the tones produced from the instruments, and communicate them, thus improved, through the exterior flexible vibrating surfaces, to the auditor.
From this we observe that the novelty in the Diaphonicon consists, chiefly, ofadiaphonic screen (with double surfaces, and enclosing volumes of air,) which acts around the strings when they are struck, on a similar principle to that of sounding-boards in other cases. But however constructed, we can say that the effect produced is extraordinary. The tones are wonderfully augmented in force and richness; and there is a grandeur in them which we had thought could only belong to the noblest organs. In other respects it seemed to be performed upon with as much facility as the piano-forte, which it resembles in size; and to be capable of the same slight turns and niceties of expression. Upon the whole we were greatly delighted with the invention, which certainly deserves the most earnest attention of the musical world. We should mention that this instrument is entirely distinct from the beautiful Euphonon, of which we formerly gave a description, and for which the amateurs of sweet music are also indebted to the ingenuity and enterprise of Mr. Pinnock." The Literary Gazette: A Weekly Journal of Literature, Science, and ..., Volume 8, 1824, p. 748

1825 - "Numerous as have been the attempts to improve the piano-forte since its original invention, such attempts have been in general wholly limited to its mechanical construction; while the scientific investigation of the philosophical principles of musical sound has either been entirely neglected, or so imperfectly understood by the manufacturer, as to render nugatory his most assiduous efforts to produce a perfect instrument. Yet, with so palpable an omission as the nonattention to this principal source from which perfection of tone can be derived, the piano-forte has obtained deserved celebrity, and now ranks among those inventions which charm the ear and contribute to the elegant amusements of polished society. The period has at length arrived, when the fallacy of attempting to attain perfection by improvements, however ingenious, if purely mechanical, is exploded; and the Science Of Sounds has accordingly been studied with a degree of interest proportionate to the result which has been sought. Repeated experiments, founded on scientific theory, has fully realized the most sanguine expectation; and the proprietor of the "Patent Diaphonic Piano-forte" has come before the public with an invention for increasing and enriching the quality of musical sounds, wholly differing from any that ever preceded it. Only an intimate knowledge of the powerful effect capable of being produced by the combined aid of reciprocated sounds, could have given birth to this improvement, which has been submitted to the musical world, and stood the test of the most scrupulous examination. (see next )

DIAPHONIC PIANO-FORTE.
(continuation)

The novel means employed by Mr. Pinnock, the inventor of this instrument, for increasing the power of musical sound, is not attended with any counteracting inconvenience. Elastic surfaces and the volumes of air which they inclose, as employed in this invention, are, like the sounding boards of musical instruments, capable of reciprocating to every variety of musical sound, without retaining the resonance longer than the original sounds exist; the accumulated power is therefore rendered completely subservient to the performer, and he may manage it at his will, so as to produce the most varied shades of expression.
Another merit of the diaphonic piano-forte is, that while the richness or volume of tone is so very materially increased, a most effectual barrier is raised, by the aid of the same principle, against the transmission of noise (caused by the percussion of the hammer), and that the voice of the singer, instead of being deadened by the opposition of a non-elastic substance, is both sweetened and reinforced." Concert room and orchestra anecdotes of music and musicians ..., Volume 3, 1825, p. 211-213

"PATENT DIAPHONIC PIANO FORTE. The piano forte, certainly one of the sweetest and most elegant of musical instruments, of late years has been in a state of progressive improvement. The first stringed instrument played with keys, was the virginal, on which Queen Elizabeth was considered to be an able performer. The harpsichord succeeded, which was an improvement on the virginal. In the first of these inventions, the wires were struck with hammers, which not quickly springing therefrom, even with the lightest touch, had the effect of deadening the tone. in the second, the strings were struck by a quill, fixed on a jack, which being more elastic, in a great measure remedied this defect; vet the mechanism retained somewhat of a scratching noise, and rendered the instrument imperfect. In the piano forte, the strings are struck by hammers of such a construction, as to produce a quality of tone superior to the harpsichord, which quitting the string entirely, leaves it free to vibrate. The piano forte was invented by Christopher Gottlieb Schroeter, a native of Holstein, whose first model of this instrument was exhibited about the year 1721. Among the recent improvements of the piano forte, is that for which Mr. Pinnock of London, has obtained a patent. This however, is not dependent on any mechanical alteration of the structure, but simply operating in an extension of the tone, by an ingenious apparatus fitted to the front, back, and top of the instrument. This draphomc addenda. augments the sound to a wonderful extent, so that by its application the small cabinet piano forte, derives a volume and intensity of tone. surpassing the largest instruments, by a scale that cannot fail to surprise. This effect is produced by a sort of diaphonic screen, having double surfaces, which being elastic, and enclosing Volumes of air, act as the sounding boards of musical instruments, and are capable of reciprocating to every variety of musical sound¢ without retaining the resonance longer than the original sounds exist; the accumulated power is therefore rendered completely subservient to the performer, who may manage it at will, to produce the most varied shades of expression. The inventor truly observes, that while the richness or volume of tone is so materially increased, a most effectual barrier is raised by the aid of the same principle, against the transmission of noise, (caused by the percussion of the hammer) and that the voice of the singer, instead of being deadened by the opposition of a non-elastic substance, as in the usual or common instruments, is greatly ameliorated.” The sound is not only increased to an extraordinary extent, by this process, but the tone acquires proportionate richness; and wedoubt not but this improvement will amply repay the inventor for his meritorious, and very useful discovery. This diaphoriic principle, has a particular advantage, as it may be easily applied to piano fortes of every construction."
