Musical mechanism of 20 or 30 notes that works by means of a perforated paper. If you want to buy the mechanism to customize your own songs, select the number of notes in the drop-down "Model". If you want us to send you the mechanism with a personalized melody, you don't need to select the model. You can purchase the mechanism with the paper unperforated or already perforated, ready to play the song of your choice. You can customize your own song, which will sound when you insert the paper strip into the mechanism while turning the crank. If you wish to purchase the mechanism already personalized with a melody, select it from the list or do a search in the Melodies section of this website. In this way we will confirm if it is possible to adapt your melody in case it is not available. In case it is to be given as a gift to someone who will later customize any song, we recommend the 30-note mechanism, as it has much more customization options than a 20-note one. It will not be necessary to choose any duration in the "Customize melody" dropdown. The kit includes the musical mechanism with the number of notes you select, a strip of paper of 40 seconds duration, a tool to easily punch the paper and an instruction manual with all the information about how to customize a song. This type of mechanism is only sold loose or in this wooden box: . It cannot be installed in any other box in the online store. It is ideal if you want to compose your own song, as a gift for a musician or for someone who is taking the first steps in music.
