Tune Description

This movement is like a Celeste.

The tempo is a little too slow, to my way of thinking. The musical arrangement is nice, and has a feeling of romanticism.

If you request it, we’ll make a small adjustment in the governor to speed up the tempo a bit. In my opinion, this greatly improves the arrangement.

The part writing could be more elaborate, but what is there is nice. The music works, it just depends on what you have in mind.

72 Note Movement

This 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 72 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.

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.
