Violin With Horn for Sounding Box Directs Tone Toward Audience, 1924

Built on the same principle as a violin and played in the same manner, a musical instrument with a metal horn instead of the usual sounding-box has been patented in 1924.

Metal horn and diaphragms on this instrument give violin tones resonance and volume.

Each string is provided with a separate bridge and metal diaphragms to amplify the tone. The sound can be focused directly upon those wishing to hear by pointing the mouth of the horn toward them; greater volume is secured, and the tone, while essentially that of a violin, has something of the quality of a cornet’s.
