Our Line of Music Box Movements are made by well known company Sankyo. These music box mechanisms are Full Size 18 Note Melodic Movements (with the exception of Edelweiss-see note in red) that play up to 3 minutes when fully wound. They have a white plastic cover for protection from dust.
Due to copyright laws, many of these tunes have become very difficult to find. We are happy to have found a source with a broad selection of licensed melodies, and below are some of the most popular choices. If you don't find a tune you are looking for, please call or email us, and we may be able to get it for you. A couple of the melodies, marked by (YS) were only available in the Yun Sheng brand, which is also a Full Size18 Note Melodic movement similar to Sankyo.
Measurements (all except mini): 2-1/4" x 2" x 1"
Please Note: Due to small quantity pricing from the supplier, special orders will be subject to an upcharge of $3.50 per movement ordered unless we are able to place your order at a time when we are also replenishing our stock. In that case, we will add your requests to our purchase order, and no extra surcharge will apply.
MELODIES AVAILABLE - Please click on the name of the tune to hear the melody.
**Edelweiss is a miniature music box movement meaning it is smaller in size than the regular movements above. It comes with a free mini triangle ring key for wind up, but no shut off lever is available for it. It is a Miniature Melodic 18 Note mechanism that plays up to 2 minutes when fully wound. This was the only version of this very popular tune we could find anywhere.
Each music box movement comes with your choice of one free winding key. You can choose from either a T-Bar Key (top, right in product picture, measures 5/8" shaft), or a Triangle Ring Key (bottom, right in product picture, measures 1" shaft). Shut off levers (pictured in center) are not included, but are available as an option. For Shut off Lever Installation Instructions, please CLICK HERE .
