50 Note Sankyo Orpheus Movement
Tune DescriptionThis movement has a little softer tone, and sounds more like a Swiss musical movement.
This arrangement of "Fur Elise" covers a lot of ground, especially when you consider that you are only getting one part (rather than two or 3 parts). The music rings loud and clear like bells, and is very beautiful. I was quite pleasantly surprised when I first heard it.
"Symphony No. 9" has often been used as a hymn. It is beautiful and stately. The tempo fits perfectly.
As for the "Minuet", it also is very lovely.
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.
