|20140311319||Musical Percussion Support Stands and Related Devices and Methods - In some aspects, a musical percussion support stand includes a stand tube, legs that are configured to be deployed perpendicular to the stand tube in supporting arrangement and a set of two or more height adjustable foot elements. The height adjustable foot elements include a body with at least one rest surface and a first recess. The first recess is configured to receive a leg, with a central axis of the first recess substantially parallel to a horizontal central axis of the body. The body has a first position and a second position relative to a central axis of the leg. In the first position, the rest surface may be disposed on a supporting surface for supporting the stand, with the leg relatively more spaced above the supporting surface than in the second position.||10-23-2014|
|20140305282||Musical Percussion Drum Mounting Clamp and Related System - In some aspects, a musical percussion instrument includes a musical drum having a generally cylindrical musical drum body and a sound generating surface secured to an upper end of the drum body by multiple drum lugs and a drum mounting clamp mounted to one drum lug of the multiple drum lugs for releasable mounting of a mounting rod to the drum body. The drum mounting clamp includes a mounting base for mounting upon the musical drum body. The mounting base has a mounting rod recess and a securement element to secure the drum clamp to a mounting rod, arranging the musical drum body relative to the mounting rod.||10-16-2014|
|20140298972||Musical Percussion Support Stands Having Three Supporting Contact Points and Related Systems and Methods - In some aspects, a hi-hat musical cymbal set support stand includes a vertical stand tube defining a stand axis, and three support members associated with a lower end of the stand tube and disposed in a tripod arrangement for supporting engagement of the stand upon a supporting surface. Each supporting member defines a contact point with the supporting surface, and the three supporting members supporting the lower end of the stand tube in a position spaced apart from the supporting floor surface. At least one of the three supporting members includes a foot pedal cymbal operating device having an outward heel end defining one of the three contact points and an inward toe end suspended from the lower end of the stand tube, the heel end being disposed in engagement with the supporting surface, and the toe end being spaced from contact with the supporting surface.||10-09-2014|
|20100192749||Vibraphone - A vibraphone includes a frame having first and second ends, and first and second rows of bars disposed on the frame. The vibraphone includes a damper disposed on the frame and configured to move between a first position away from the bars and a second position in contact with multiple bars. The damper engages the bars in the second position with a proportional contact area against each bar to provide substantially proportional dampening of each bar.||08-05-2010|
|20090013852||Musical Instrument Bell Cap - A cap for a musical wind instrument bell includes a flexible substantially circular disk shaped portion sized to span the mouth of the instrument bell and a flexible continuous side wall portion extends from the outer edge of the disk shaped portion. The disk shaped portion and the side wall portion together define a receptacle sized to receive and fit over the instrument bell. The disk shaped portion rests parallel to the mouth of the instrument bell. A fastener system is disposed on the side wall portion and is configured to decrease the opening of the receptacle over the tapering conical region of the instrument bell to releasably secure the cap to the instrument bell.||01-15-2009|
