13×4, Mahogany interior on a 3 ply with maple reinforcing rings. Beer tap throw off. In 1949 big bands were fading out and small groups were coming into vogue as Be-Bop gained popularity. This is the year that WFL introduced the Buddy Rich model piccolo snare. This is a great little piccolo in beautiful shape.
