Music Boxes

To the best of our knowledge, our music boxes sound substantially better than comparably sized music boxes from competitors. Our Founderís deep love for great sounding music boxes has been the driving force for this.

Unfortunately, we have had to politely show many music box vendors to the door due to poorly resounding music boxes, and these included Inlaid Sorrento Boxes. After all, we think music boxes are all about music. Don’t you think so too?

You see, a music box is a Musical Instrument. The wooden box performs the same function as the body of a guitar or violin, in converting vibration into beautiful music.

For many years we’ve been experimenting with the complexities of Music Box Resonation. We have designed every box you see here, controlling the quality and the resonation. We even do our own Bell-Like Tuning in-house to improve the movement quality.

Customer Compares Us to Competitor

 
  We received your music box yesterday and listened to them both today. But before I comment on the sound, I do want to say that we were very pleased with the box itself. It was obviously solid wood, and in opening the box, we could see how the corners were joined and how the overall make of the box was obviously superior.

Your "maintenance" guide was very helpful in caring for the box and the mechanism. We especially enjoyed the comment about having it serviced by a clock maker at least once a DECADE !

The first noticeable thing in comparing the two sounds was that your box has more volume. In continuing to compare, we can only say (since it's kind of hard to put the differences in words) that your's had the following better qualities:

Sound was more "crisp," "bright" Sound appeared to have some additional "bell" tones somehow added. My wife says more "melodic." Sound itself was more "vibrant."

These are all positive qualities. There were no negatives.

The box from [your competitor] - we know the box was far inferior, and the only comparison relative to sound was that is was "softer." but acceptable. But it was not as "vibrant" as yours. I think "vibrant" is one of our best descriptive words to describe the sound of your box.
