Similar melodies, new scales and melody requests

Some of you might have noticed that recently we introduced similar melodies detection. You can browse through similar melodies on the melody page and there is also a small counter in the melody player widget. The algorithm is comparing melody note sequences and does not care about titles, which among other things made this joke less funny.

Many people have complained that the actual scale of 30 note music box is shifted a few notes comparing to the scale on the paper strips provided with it. We've decided to fix this with an extra scale in our editor. It is called Grand Illusions 30 (F scale) or 30F. We've also added a custom 20 note scale for Wintergatan music box.

Please make sure to visit our melody request page. It has undergone significant changes.

We would like to invite you to visit our new forum page! Currently, the functionality is pretty basic, so you can't post anything other than plain boring text and links, but we plan to start gradually improving it in near future if it appears to be popular among our users.

By default you will be notified about posts, that are submitted by people you follow, but you can always opt in for receiving notifications about every new forum post in your notification settings. We would like everybody to consider this, because there will be questions about music boxes and the website in general and many of you already have enough experience to help the others.

Huge thanks to all current and future contributors!

Why there is not a 60 notes mechanism yet???

If there are 60 notes melodies, why there is not a mechanism that actually can play them? there is the technology ... I will love to help in the project, one important thing is to do metal gears instead of plastic ones :)

best box/housing for the Kikkerland Music box mech.?

Hi! I just got myself a 15 note music box. I'm sort of tired of holding it with my other hand while i crank it. And of course I will do some experimenting on my own, but can anyone give me some tips on how to create a housing for the mechanism that makes a nice, big sound? How can I make it as loud as possible, without a mic?

Also, I heard some problems with the gears breaking or something... I have access to a 3-d printer where I live, does anyone know the dimensions of the gears or something, in case they break? or maybe I can buy the gears to replace them?
