Tune DescriptionCongratulations! Here is your chance to hear a custom-made arrangement of three German folk songs. The music itself is exciting, stately and yet delicate. This is what the first person that bought it had to say: "Lively",
"Very Colorful", "It Sings". I'm sure you haven't seen an arrangement like this produced for quite a while! These three songs are especially well known to Germans, but you may recognize them as well, if only from vintage movies.
For years, I myself have wanted to produce my own musical movement; and now - here it is at last! I arranged these tunes note by note, and Sankyo has produced it.
I am so proud of the work Sankyo has done! This is our first exclusive arrangement. In the Whole Wide World it is only available thru BetterMusicBoxes.com!

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.
