50 Note Sankyo Orpheus Movement
Tune DescriptionHere is a thought on a nice musical movement, every time I hear this song playing on a music box, I think of a little girl. If you listen closely, you can almost see her hair or her face in your mind.
I never heard this song before anyway, not until I heard this wonderful Sankyo arrangement. I think it is very original indeed. There is a delicacy about the music that is unmistakable. This movement would work very well in a jewelry box.
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.
