Notes: The arms were molded separately and positioned to allow the Beetle to hold the various instruments. A rare 1955 Beetle with Piccolo exists, but does not appear on the order forms.

The Beetle with Saxophone is listed separately in the Mold Book, as A-229. The main difference between the two is that the Saxophone Beetle has its mouth open; the Cymbal Beetle has it closed. Some Cymbal Beetles have been found in the open-mouth version; see photo.
