50 Note Sankyo Orpheus Movement
Tune DescriptionThis musical movement produces a delicate tone indeed. The music is soft like velvet.
"Liebestraume" is very well arranged here. The music seems to be asking a question: "Are you going to be true to me?" Or perhaps, "Do you love me?" Well, at any rate, the music is very nice indeed.
Brahms’s “Waltz” is also very nicely done. One almost pictures his or her Sweetheart dancing.
The Chopin waltz is my favorite among these three. It just happens to be arranged in exactly the same key as the original score, which is rare with music box arrangements, making this one is very special.
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.
