72 Note Sankyo Orpheus Movementzoom
( 19cm long, 7.5cm wide, 3.5cm high )
Tune DescriptionThis musical movement is in the German style. I liked it as soon as I heard it. The tone is charming. "The Magic Flute" is downright happy. You can't very well feel sad while this music is playing! The music sounds like a bird in many ways, or else there might be a flute player somewhere near by.
"Minuet" is very stately, bringing to mind a king at a grand ball with all his subjects serving him. The musical arrangement is very well done indeed. The tempo is very close to that of the original score.
The "Turkish March" is sure to become one of your favorites. Even though the music is in a minor key, the mood is very happy indeed. There is no sadness here at all. For me, the only sad thing is that there is only one part instead of 3 parts to the "Turkish March": I’d love to arrange it in 3 parts for a 72-note movement. The music sings, and is most inviting.
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.
