Sounds silly, but I was watching a mother strolling with her baby carriage here. With a leach from her wrist to her baby wagon so if it slipped it wouldn't run away down hills.
I had the idea that the same principle could be used to drop safeing the violin.
So here is my theory (dough someone may had the same before me.)
If one had a elastic band securing the scroll to the wrist holding the neck. Long enough to give freedom of movement and short enough to not hit the floor should it slip! The elastic would hopefully lessen the force of the drop too.
I'm going to try this in a controlled environment as soon as i find a elastic line/cloth/something that I like. (Over the sofa filled with soft pillows perhaps?)
But before I do, Are there anyone objecting to this idea, or have a comment?
As king you must see a good in any situation.
When you cant do something smart, Do something funny.
LOL! That's a nice idea! Never saw something like that. You are very inventive, Raggmopp! I'd like to see it. Don't think that i'll use it though.. never dropped my violin
BUT: i guess maybe it could be great relaxing mind-set for beginners. Many of us are squeezing the violin because of fear to drop it (and not many of us actually drop). But if your mind is secure about that - you can forget about that and just play properly!
Thats a good idea MAD. I have two patents of my own and am always trying to come up with new products.
If it works youy could send it to a co. Called Lambert and Lambert.
For 199.00 dollars they will do a market analysis and patent serch.
If it scores high enough on their scale, they will develop it at no cost to you.
No matter where you go, there you are!
