Tune DescriptionWell, BetterMusicBoxes.com is really moving up in the world. In fact, we may be above this world in this case. Introducing the orchestral suite "The Planets". This 72 note movement plays Jupiter, in 3 parts, from the musical composition "The Planets".
The music is dreamy. You almost feel like you're floating in space. Perhaps you're just looking at the stars from the earth below. This would make a nice wedding gift or an excellent anniversary gift. You can purchase this movement by itself, and build your own box, or you can buy one of our boxes to put this movement in. If you're looking for something unusually different, this is it.
Please note the following recording is a simulation of the actual sound of the movement.
72 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 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.
