The cylinder musical movement was invented in 1796 and for the first time, people could listen to mechanically reproduced music in their own homes. Musical movements came long before the invention of the phonograph back in 1877. Forward to the 21st century and you'll find that the world surrounding musical movements still inspires both the young and old.

The 18 note movement is the "base" movement from our selection of mechanical music. In order from lowest to highest, the movements we carry are as follows: 18, 22, 30, 36, 50, 72 & 144 Note

The brands we carry for the 18 note movements are Reuge/Romance (Swiss), Sankyo, Rhymes and Yen Sheng. The brand you get are dependent on which tune you select. All Swiss movements are listed accordingly in the above "music selection" drop down list.
