Tune Description

Congratulations! 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!

50 Note Movement

This kind of Nidec/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.
