Can I have my own melody made?

If you have your own composition that you would like to have on mechanics, or a piece of music that does not yet exist on mechanics, then there are the following options:

Large winding mechanism with custom melody

For a large, luxurious mechanism with 30 tones, it is possible to have an arrangement made of a piece of music that you supply yourself. This can be an audio file, (you tube) video or sheet music. Ideally both audio / video + sheet music. The mechanism fits a maximum of 35 seconds. So indicate with your application exactly which piece it is of a maximum of 35 seconds.

Costs: 219 euros (excluding music box). Only possible in combination with a music box for luxury mechanics. If you are interested, please contact Rob or order a music box directly. On the product page you can choose the last option 'Custom Tune' at 'Melody' and fill in the details. In the webshop menu, go to music boxes 'With Luxemechaniek'

On request, your own melody on a 50-tone mechanism is also possible. From 995, - incl. Wooden sound box.

 

Large manual mechanism to program yourself

Another possibility is a 'make your own melody' set. If you are musically inclined you can make your own melody with the punch pliers and the supplied paper strip. This mechanism has 20 or 30 tones and a very nice warm sound. It is manual, which means that you have to keep running to let it play. On this website, the mechanism is available both separately and with a wooden sound box. Here for sale

Large runs for small mechanics with 18 tones.

The small mechanisms with a self-supplied melody can also be made in large quantities:

From 1000 pieces the price per hand mechanism is approximately 2,50 ex. VAT. plus 250 euro development costs and shipping costs (varies) Delivery time: approximately 8 weeks.

The minimum order is for windable mechanics (18 tones) 250 pieces and the price around 10 euro ex. VAT per item. Delivery time: 8 weeks.

(prices are only for the mechanics, without wooden sound box)

Where else can you buy the music boxes?

You can find all (physical) sales points here

I'm looking for a melody that does not appear in the webshop

No, in principle this is not possible with a few exceptions. You can submit a request, perhaps there are more people who would like to see the same melody in the collection. Only worldwide known melodies stand a chance.

What is the difference between manual and wind-up?

The difference is that with a manual mechanism you have to keep turning on the lever to make the music sound. This lever is always on the side and is visible. Depending on the melody, it is silver-colored with a red ball or completely golden. A manual mechanism has 18 tones.

A wind-up mechanism plays by itself for a few minutes. You just need to wind it up, the further you wind it the longer it plays. The winding key is on the bottom of the box, out of sight. A wind-up mechanism is available in various versions. The smallest has 18 tones. Larger, more expensive machine heads have 30,36,50 or even 72 tones.

What does 18 / 30 / 36 / 50 mean?

This indicates the number of tones that are on the mechanism. To be more precise; The mechanism has a comb with teeth that are tuned from high to low. There is also a rotating cylinder with pins, the position of these pins make the melody, and every time a peg touches a tooth, a tone sounds. The smallest and most sold mechanisms have 18 tones. (music box Lude, Celesta, Robin, Tamino) There are also larger mechanisms with 30, 36 (Tamino, Calandra) and 50 tones (Orpheus, from 675 euro). You can imagine that the more tones there are, the more beautiful it will sound because it is closer to the original. The mechanism also plays longer and contains a larger fragment of the original piece of music. The quality of the materials is better and therefore also the sound.

Questions about engraving

I do not yet know the text for engraving.

For example, if you want the box to be delivered quickly before a birth, but you do not yet know the name and date of birth, it is best to order the box (with engraving, fill in: 'text will be later') due to delivery time / availability . As soon as you know the text for engraving, email this to me. Then I can usually engrave it within a few days.

Can I have my own logo / image engraved?

Yes, that's possible. Keep in mind that the engraving is black / white. So if a logo / image is graphic then we can usually engrave it. When a good quality file is supplied in pdf, the price is 15, -. If the file still needs editing then 10-20 euro is added. Send the file by e-mail for a quote.

Can I have multiple surfaces engraved?

Yes, that's possible. First choose the area before the first engraving and fill in the desired text. After this an option for a second engraving for another plane appears. If you want a third engraving, please contact us.

Layout of text

By default we use the font 'Gabriola Regular'. Subtle, elegant and with beautiful sleek lines, perfect for engraving. (a different font is possible on request if it is in our 'font' collection)

The layout is provided by us by engraving. How this will look depends on the number of characters and the available surface. It is therefore possible that texts with long sentences are divided over multiple lines. If you would like to have an example of this in advance, let us know.

    Tree & woods

    View them by city

    A tree is like a book in which time writes. Many city trees end up in the shredder, as happens with secret documents that should no longer be read. And that is a shame! In more and more cities, there is an initiative to reuse this wood sustainably and to give it back to the city in a new form, such as music boxes!

    The wood for the music boxes is very carefully selected by Rob. They are made from the trees that grew in or near the city, on a square, in a street, park or urban forest, perhaps in a place where you like to go, you may have passed them hundreds of times. That makes this wood so special! We know where the tree was, sometimes there are still pictures of it, we know its age, etc. In short: Wood full of stories!

    Exclusive woods:

    Wood from some trees is exclusive and slightly more expensive for various reasons. This is due to a very small stock, hard-to-process wood or expensive wood price.

     

    Trees card

    These are all trees from which music boxes were once made. There is therefore no more wood stock from many trees.

    Please note that these photos only give an impression! Color and drawing of the wood are different with every box, even if it is made from the same tree!
