Our 30-Note Music Box Movement
Invented in 1796, the cylinder musical movement was revolutionary! It was the first time people could buy a device to reproduce music they could listen to in their own homes. Mechanical movements that played music came long before the invention of the phonograph and provided the average person with a chance to hear their favorite melodies at any time. With the advent of newer technology, people moved away from the mechanical movement, but nostalgia and an appreciation for vintage items have reignited interest! Check out our 30-note music box movements to learn more!
How a Movement Works
An 18-note movement is the simplest mechanism we offer at Music Box Attic. However, this 30-note movement is a couple of steps up from that base design, allowing for longer play-time and more note variation. Some music boxes can even have up to 144 notes that can make it feel like you have an orchestra playing right in front of you! Our 30-note music box movements come with the following features:
In addition to the actual mechanical movement, this product also comes with a winding key, wire stopper, and three ¼” screws. Some of the optional upgrades include:
The brand you receive for this 30-note musical movement is dependent on your song choice.

We have a massive library of songs available for our 30-note musical movement. Choose from music selections that range from Ode to Joy and La Vie En Rose to Let It Go and The Nutcracker Suite. Listen to your song selection for the 30-note music box movement in advance when you visit our Listening Library!
Adding in your own music or recordings to a music box is simple. Look for custom music options after you find your favorite music box, tell us the song you’d like and you’ll have it at your door step in a few days.
When you add this option our experienced musicians will take a standard file and convert it so the module will play a music box type of sound of your song. They will go note by note and make a fabulous rendition. We have a few musicians that we work with and they have done thousands of songs and are the best at what they do. Cick here to hear some files they have done:

The "Custom Music Box Module" is one of the newest creations combining tradition and cutting edge technology from Music Box Attic. It is the most popular way of inserting any song, sound or recording into any box you want (yours or ours). Available for nearly all of our boxes. Find the box you want, follow few easy steps to customize with your song.
We are offering an option to take your song and covert it to sound like a traditional music box melody (still in digital format). Your tune will be onverted note by note to sound just like a mechanical movement music box, but better, due to the flexibility of the module as well as software sound enhancement. Here are two examples of the previous conversions of songs that our musician has done:
We also suggest browsing for your song on YouTube to see if it has already been converted, this way you can get the music box sound but not pay the additional $75.
Usually about 1 to 2 days, add the conversion and add another day. But we can usually be done within a day outside of the busy holiday season.
We offer three types of custom music box music modules - L1-Exclusive, L2-Premium, and L3-Elite.
*Note - Conversion & Music Upload is optional, it is not required, although we highly recommend we do the music loading for you as we will edit and make the sound perfect, at no cost.
Standard Operation, open the box music starts, close the box, music stops. Comes with USB to Recharge music box and easy music load + On/Off Light Sensor
Same as L1, plus an additional on/off switch in case you don’t want to hear the music box play when you open the lid every time. Comes with USB to Recharge music box and easy music load + On/Off Light Sensor + Additional On/Off Toggle
