- The mechanism inside the music box is wind-up mechanism.
- The mechanism’s brand is Sankyo (Japan).
- How to play it? : wind up the key underneath the mechanism and itwill start playing.
- How long does the sound of music play last? A music box plays continuously until it runs out of wind-up energy. Each winding can play for approximately 2-3 minutes or 7-8 loops.
- The interval of the song to make a music box can be 14 – 24 seconds in length. This interval will be one loop on a music box.
