Aeolian "Snake Bite" Accent Perforations
By Dave Krall

Who invented the snake bite perforations for accenting on piano rolls?
Who held the patent for this?  Was this an invention of Aeolian?

Wilcox & White used snake bites as well as some European companies.
Was the use of this device licensed by Aeolian?

Dave Krall
Hammond, Indiana
