Itis to be understood that While I have dis
’ closed my invention in full details in the best form
’ known to me, nevertheless, -this `is purely exem
V tion with a musical instrument such as a clarinet,
40 comprising` a relatively long member designed to
plary, and various modifications in the construc
tion, and arrangement of parts„substitution of
materials and mechanical equivalents may be
made Without departing from the spirit of the in
vention, except as more specifically set forth in
the appended claims.
I claim:
1. In a device of the character described, an
elongated .member designed to be positioned lon
gitudinally of a musical instrument such as a
clarinet, means at each end of the member for
detachable connection with the instrument, a
thumb hook carried by the member upon the side ~
»of the member opposite from said means, and
comprising two arcuate parts, one of said parts
position against the side of ther instrument to
extend longitudinally thereof, means for securing
the member at its ends tothe instrument, a block
body secured to the member and having a later
ally directed opening, a binding screw carried by
the block for extension into the opening, a rela
tively long rod, a clasp carried by the rod` at one
end adapted to receive the instrument, the rod
at its other end being shaped to provide'an offset
terminal portion extended into said opening, said
rod being supported longitudinally of theinstru
ment upon. the side thereof opposite `from the
member, ai‘f‘slide mounted upon the rod for move
ment longitudinally thereon, and means forming
a part of the slide facilitating the attachment of
a music support thereto.
