50 Note Sankyo Orpheus Movement
Tune DescriptionThe "Rain in Jogashima" is an Asian song with a slow tempo. Here, we think of a girl with a lovely hair-do or possibly a group of Japanese people talking together.
The "Harbour Habu" is yet another Asian song. Here is a word about two lovely songs with some Asian flavor. The first of these runs along rather fast, as if a Japanese maiden were singing on her way to school or some other event. It kind of makes me think of a tea 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.

What You Get
1. If you buy one of our large music boxes together with one of our movements, we will install the movement free of charge.
2. If you buy just the movement, it ships complete with winding key, mounting screws, operating lever, an attractive tune label, and an accurate drilling template. For box-building details, refer to our Box Design & Installation Considerations.
We also stock 15mm (just over 9/16) long key extenders (necessary for box bottoms thicker than 3/8 - which we do not recommend). These are only available with the purchase of a movement. Contact us for details.
