Description of Embodiments



[0019] Next, with reference to the figures, the embodiments of the present disclosure are described in detail. FIG. 1 is an explanatory diagram illustrating an embodiment of an example of a cymbal support according to the present disclosure. FIGS. 2 and 3 are explanatory diagrams illustrating an example of usage of the cymbal support.

[0020] The cymbal support 1 according to the present disclosure is for a stand shaft rod 100 of a stand to hold a cymbal 300. The cymbal support 1 illustrated in FIGS. 1 to 3 has the most typical shape. The cymbal support 1 includes a support part 10. The support part 10 has a solid inverted substantially bowl-shaped curved part 12 that a cymbal 300 comes into contact, and also has a through hole 18 at a central axis through which a stand shaft rod 100 penetrates. As described later, a portion of the curved part 12 closely fits the cymbal 300. Also, the cymbal support 1 (support part 10) includes a columnar base 14 on the side of a surface (bottom surface 16) that opposes the curved part 12. The base 14 is not necessarily essential, however, there is a case the base 14 is preferably included depending on usage described later.

[0021] A material of the cymbal support 1 (support part 10) may not shrink extremely because of the weight of the cymbal 300, may have adequate elasticity, and may not break in a predetermined period of time enduring the vibration of the cymbal 300. The material of the cymbal support 1 (support part 10) is preferably one of, or a combination of two or more of leather, cork, felt, silicone resin and rubber sponge. In addition, the cymbal support 1 (support part 10) preferably has hardness of 25 to 80 degrees. However, considering the tone of the cymbal 300, there is a case that the cymbal support 1 (support part 10) more preferably has hardness of 25 to 50 degrees. The hardness recited in the present application is defined in JIS K 6253 type A (JIS K 6253 durometer type A (shore A)).

[0022] The curved part 12 of the support part 10 is necessary to have a degree of curvature that only a portion of the curved part 12 surrounding an opening 18a of the through hole 18 closely fits the cymbal 300, and the entirety of the curved part 12 does not closely fit the cymbal 300. In the support part 10 of the cymbal support 1 illustrated in FIGS. 1 to 3, the diameter of the bottom surface 16 is 38 mm to 45 mm, the overall height is 20 mm to 30 mm, the degree of curvature of the curved part 12 is 20 mm to 30 mm in radius. The height of the base 14 is 1 mm to 5 mm. The numeric value of the size of the support part 10 of the cymbal support 1 is appropriately selected according to the size of the cymbal 300 and/or the like. For other sizes, for example, one with a small size may have a diameter of the bottom surface of 30 mm to 38 mm, an overall height of 8 mm to 20 mm, and a degree of curvature of the curved part 12 of 10 mm to 20 mm in radius. A preferable range of size is 8 mm to 30 mm in a height of a support part 10, 20 mm to 45 mm in a diameter of a bottom surface 16, 10 mm to 30 mm in a radius of a degree of curvature of a curved part 12.

[0023] Next, usage of the cymbal support 1 is described. As illustrated in FIGS. 2 and 3, on a stand of the cymbal 300, a stand shaft rod 100 is standing, and a screw 102 is arranged by drilling a thread at a top end. A fixer 110 is screwed to the screw 102 of the stand shaft rod 100. Specifically, the fixer 110 has a disc-shaped plate 112 whose upper surface inclines from the center to the periphery, and a cylinder 114 that stands upwards from the center of the axis of the plate 112, and screw threads are drilled on the inner peripheral surface of the cylinder 114, forming a screw thread portion 116.

[0024] By screwing the screw thread portion 116 of the fixer 110 to the stand shaft rod 100, the fixer 110 is fixed to the stand shaft rod 100. Then, the cymbal support 1 (support part 10) is fitted into the fixer 110. Specifically, the cymbal support 1 (support part 10) is inserted so that the bottom surface 16 of the support part 10 faces the upper surface of the plate 112 of the fixer 110, and the cylinder 114 of the fixer 110 is inserted to the through hole 18 of the support part 10. Then, as illustrated in FIG. 3, the bottom surface 16 of the support part 10 is fixed by closely fitting along the inclination of the upper surface of the plate 112 of the fixer 110. At this time, a tip of the cylinder 114 of the fixer 110 basically projects above the opening 18a of the support part 10.

[0025] In this state, a lower surface 310b of the cymbal part 310 of the cymbal 300 is arranged on the side of the cymbal support 1 (support part 10) and the side of the fixer 110, insert the screw 102 of the stand shaft rod 100 into the cymbal hole 312, moreover, insert the cylinder 114 of the fixer 110, the lower surface 310b of the cymbal part 310 is disposed on the curved part 12 of the cymbal support 1 (support part 10), and the cymbal part 310 closely fits because of the weight thereof.

[0026] The cymbal support 1 of the above-described configuration can reduce suppressed movement and vibration of the cymbal 300 and secure an intrinsic sound of the cymbal 300 while supporting the cymbal 300.

Embodiment 1



[0027] In the following embodiments, examples of cymbal supports 1 having other forms are described. FIGS. 4 to 7 are explanatory diagrams illustrating Embodiment 1 of the cymbal support according to the present disclosure. A cymbal support 2 of Embodiment 1 includes a support part 20. The support part 20 has a solid inverted substantially bowl-shaped curved part 22 that a cymbal 300 comes into contact, and also has a through hole 28 at a central axis through which a stand shaft rod 100 penetrates. Also, the cymbal support 2 has a columnar base 24 on a side of a surface (bottom surface 26) that opposes the curved part 22 of the support part 20.

[0028] In addition, an opening 28a of the through hole 28 on the side of the curved part 22 of the support part 20 is chamfered in a curved shape. When the chamfering of the opening 28a is in a curved shape, a preferred radius is 1 mm to 3 mm. Although the chamfering of the opening 28a of the cymbal support 2 (support part 20) in FIGS. 4 to 7 is in a curved shape, the chamfering may be straight.

[0029] A material, hardness and usage of the cymbal support 2 (support part 20) are similar to those of the cymbal support 1 (support part 10). A size and a degree of curvature of the curved part of the cymbal support 2 (support part 20) may be in a range described with the cymbal support 1 (support part 10), more specifically, for example, a diameter of the bottom surface 26 is approximately 40 mm, an overall height is approximately 22 mm, a degree of curvature of the curved part 22 is approximately 25.5 mm in radius. A height of the base 24 is approximately 2 mm. A degree of curvature of the curved-shape chamfering of the opening 28a is approximately 3 mm in radius.

[0030] When the opening 28a of the through hole 28 on the side of the curved part 22 is chamfered in a curved shape or straightly as in the cymbal support 2 (support part 20), even when the cymbal 300 vibrates violently, the effect of the vibration does not propagate directly to the opening 28a, and therefore the cymbal support 2 is less likely to break.

Embodiment 2



[0031] FIG. 8 is an explanatory diagram illustrating Embodiment 2 of a cymbal support according to the present disclosure. A cymbal support 3 of Embodiment 2 includes a support part 30. The support part 30 has a solid inverted substantially bowl-shaped curved part 32 that a cymbal 300 comes into contact, and also has a through hole 38 at a central axis through which a stand shaft rod 100 penetrates.

[0032] The curved part 32 of the cymbal support 3 (support part 30) has a relatively straight but curved shape. Even with the shape, the curved part 32 of the support part 30 has a degree of curvature that only a surrounding of an opening 38a on the side of the curved part 32 of the through hole 38 closely fits the cymbal 300, and the entirety of the curved part 32 does not closely fit the cymbal 300.

[0033] A material, hardness and usage of the cymbal support 3 (support part 30) are similar to those of the cymbal support 1 (support part 10).

[0034] FIG. 9 is an explanatory diagram illustrating Embodiment 3 of the cymbal support according to the present disclosure. A cymbal support 4 of Embodiment 3 includes a support part 40. The support part 40 has a solid inverted substantially bowl-shaped curved part 42 that a cymbal 300 comes into contact, and also has a through hole 48 at a central axis through which a stand shaft rod 100 penetrates.

[0035] The curved part 42 of the cymbal support 4 (support part 40) has a relatively straight but curved shape. Even with the shape, the curved part 42 of the support part 40 has a degree of curvature that only a surrounding of an opening 48a on the side of the curved part 42 of the through hole 48 closely fits the cymbal 300, and the entirety of the curved part 42 does not closely fit the cymbal 300. The inclination of the curved part 42 of the cymbal support 4 (support part 40) is steeper than an inclination of the curved part 32 of the cymbal support 3 (support part 30).

[0036] A material, hardness and usage of the cymbal support 4 (support part 40) are similar to those of the cymbal support 1 (support part 10).

Embodiment 4



[0037] FIG. 10 is an explanatory diagram illustrating Embodiment 4 of the cymbal support according to the present disclosure. A cymbal support 5 of Embodiment 4 includes a support part 50. The support part 50 has a solid inverted substantially bowl-shaped curved part 52 that a cymbal 300 comes into contact, and also has a through hole 58 at a central axis through which a stand shaft rod 100 penetrates.

[0038] An upper portion of the curved part 52 of the cymbal support 5 (support part 50) has a gently curved shape, however, unlike other cymbal supports, the curved part 52 is short, and has a columnar base 54 being relatively tall on the other side that is the surface (bottom surface 56) facing the curved part 52 of the support part 50. The degree of curvature of the curved part 52 is mostly similar to those of the cymbal support 1 (support part 10) and the cymbal support 2 (support part 20).

[0039] The material, hardness and usage of the cymbal support 5 (support part 50) are similar to those of the cymbal support 1 (support part 10).
