Many of us had a music box. This is a small storehouse of things dear to the heart, which plays a gentle melody when it is opened.
Principle of operation
The mechanism by which the melody arises is simple. A cylinder with small rivets rotates at a constant speed. Almost touching it, a comb with metal tongues is in a fixed position. When the cylindrical rivet reaches the comb, it raises the cane, making a sound.
With each complete revolution of the cylinder, the motif is repeated. Often the cylinder is sharpened to a standard melody. In Russia, the melody “Moonlight Sonata” by Ludwig van Beethoven is widespread. There are boxes for which you can order an individual melody printed on a special tape.
Manufacturers have tried to give their creations an unusual shape or useful functionality. All this is necessary for the treasury to please the eye and complement the interior of the house. A simple word of advice would be to get a custom music box as it would fulfill your requirement. This article presents a selection of various popular music boxes made with a classic movement.
