The music box has a really good sound quality, as well as a good manufacturing quality overall. However, the most important part (a small gear that connects the habdle with the rest of the mechanism) is made out of plastic. Because of that, it couldn't withstand a faster speed (used for higher accuracy) and broke after one day.
I would highly recommend to manufacture all gears out of metal, as they are essantial and hart to replace.
Apart feom that, the music box is very well made.
The plastic gears are delicate, and it is important to make sure that you do not get overlapping paper strips passing through the machine, as this can damage the gears.
We do supply replacement winding mechanisms for the music boxes, which are extremely easy to swap over.
Works as expected! Great sound as long as the box is rested on a hard flat surface. Super fun, especially when paired with online sheet music generators to minimize errors when punching in the notes. Definitely order some extra slips of the music box paper as it only comes with a demo and 2-3 blank sheets.
Excellent sound quality, paper is easier to mark and use than expected.
This was a gift - recipient was very pleased - very good, as described on website (with a helpful demonstration video). The sound is very nice.
A most satisfactory music box! Well-built out of metal. The tone is transposed compared to the notes listed on the paper, but it is a good tone that resonates well. Beyond the music itself, the music box is able to be mounted via screws in the base for use in a wooden box. It also came with a pre-punched song and blank sheet. The 30 note version is very handy- without the extra notes, composing would be much tougher. The paper is sturdy and feeds well. Glad I bought it, highly recommended.
The sound is so beautiful that I almost teared up, I'm very happy with it and it was exactly what I wanted.
The new hole punch works very well too, from the looks of the old one and comparing it to the new punch it seems much easier and nicer to use!
It played well for half a day before the highest note began going flat, before failing to register anymore. The piece that plays the highest note bent out of range after a few playthroughs of the songs I had planned in advance and punched out the same day. I'm unsure if music boxes are normally this fragile, or if I received a defective product. Customer service never got back to me. It played beautifully for the few hours it was accurate, but I'm bummed to say the least.
A replacement is on the way.
Sounds good. I would recommend a different hole punch for accurate punches.
