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.surprised

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.)dunno

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?wink

Go for it 🙂 Make sure you film it for our entertainment.

However, I have only dropped my violin one time which you can read about in the most embarrassing incidents thread on this forum. It can happen when you play around too much as I tend to do.

LOL! rofl That's a nice idea! Never saw something like thatlaugh. You are very inventive,  Raggmopp! I'd like to see it. Don't think that i'll use it though.. never dropped my violin duncecap 

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! birthday_balloon

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.

HeyMad, also for future ref. be careful about posting ideas that you might want to sell.

Inventions need to be kept secret until you have some kind of protection on them.

Just some friendly advise!.exactly
