50 Note Sankyo Orpheus Movement
Tune DescriptionThe thing that makes this musical movement so nice is that you get a little more music than usual with a movement of this size. Even the 72-note version does not play as much of the melody line as this 50-note version does, being slower. The music here is a little fast, but very nice.
"The Blue Danube Waltz" is one of the most well known Waltzes in the music box world today. The Waltz in its original form paints a picture of a river. This quick moving musical arrangement of it paints a picture of a fast-moving mountain stream. The music is festive with a rapid tempo. The music is German.
As for the "Invitation to the Dance", it really makes you feel like dancing. You are at a nice party.
50 Note MovementThis kind of Sankyo movement plays two or three tunes (or parts) and is made in Japan. Playing time is usually about 6 minutes. There are fifty notes (or "teeth") on the comb. There is a lot of bass sound in the comb, and the arrangements are usually very spectacular in nature. Our in-house comb machine and Rick's expertise result in Bell-Like Tuning unrivalled in new movements for decades.
