Tunes and mechanisms

What tune can I put in my music box?
We can install any of these tunes. Note that there are strip paper and crank/wind-up mechanisms. Depending on the type of mechanism selected, we will show you the available boxes for it.
How many types of mechanism can we offer?
There are 3 types of mechanisms:
  • Drum and crank: the mechanism sounds while you crank the mechanism, and it stop sounding when you stop cranking. The length of the musical fragment is around 20 seconds.
  • Drum and wind-up: the mechanism has a key that you can wind-up. It will sound when you open the box and it will stop playing when you close the box. The length of the song is also around 20 seconds but the mechanism plays in a loop as long as it's winded-up.
  • Strip paper: It works inserting a strip paper from the front of the mechanism, and cranking it. The mechanism will play the song while the strip paper is going through it, and it will stop playing when the strip paper ends. The length can be of more than 2 minutes.
How much cost each type of mechanism?
The price of each type of mechanism is detailed inside of the description of the product. Normally, the crank mechanism is included in the price, and the wind-up upgrade cost $31.20. You can visit also our tunes section to check the prices for each melody.
Why prices change for some tunes?
Depending on how the mechanism is manufactured, and also depending on the type of mechanism, the tune price can vary. The prices are always automatically updated while you select the tune and the type of mechanism.
What is the length of the mechanisms?
The length of drum mechanisms (crank and wind-up) is around 20 seconds. If you want more length, it can be only done in the strip paper mechanisms.
Can I buy just the single mechanism, without a box?
Yes, of course! You can buy just the mechanism by clicking in the section "Mechanisms" of the online music box shop.
The tune selected can't be converted into a music box
Sometimes is not possible to convert a song into a music box because of the rhythym, melody, etc... If you have requested a song and we can't make it, we will comunicate it to you.
The song converted into a music box is a little bit different than the original one
The song needs to be adapted to the music box mechanism characteristics: 18 notes (crank and wind-up) or 20-30 notes (strip paper mechanism). Some rhythyms, notes, melodies or harmonies can't be done in the mechanism, but the most important things of the songs are in the music box tune, so it is recognizable.
