1 Claim. (Cl. 811-412)
This invention relates to a telescoping drum.
It is an object of the present invention to pro
vide a drum of the telescoping type wherein
the parts of the drum can be expanded when the
drum is to be used or collapsed at times when
the drum is to be transported thereby to over
come the complaint of drummers as to the bulki
ness of drums and so that they can be conven
iently transported or stored.
Other objects of the present invention are to
provide a telescoping drum which is of simple
construction, inexpensive to manufacture, easy
to adjust, compact, sturdy, convenient to use and
efûcient in operation.
drum part I3. The diaphragm 26 is attached to
the rim portion 2l by a snap ring 28. A handle 3I
is connected to the drum part I3 and by this
handle the drum can be carried. The shell of
the drum can be made of plywood or sheet metal,
the sheet metal being >preferred because of the
lightness and durability of the same. These
drum parts can be made of aluminum, and not
only would they be strong and durable, but they
would also be extremely light and very portable.
In Fig. 5, there is shown a fragment of the
lower drum wall part II which is broken away
at the flange to allow the portion 22 on the inter
mediate part to slide downwardly without inter
ference from the flange.
