I bought an Aunmas 30-Note Hand Crank Tape 30 note Music Box and am trying to compose for it.
I've already had to re-draft because the scale is completely different from the tape, but my main problem is that It won't play repeated notes at the same pitch. I thought this might be because I was putting them too close together, but even at a safe distance they don't play the second note.
Is this something I have to live with? Or is there a solution?
As a present to my grandad (age 94) I said I would repair an old porcelain rotating figurine of his which his now deceased wife (my grandma) once loved . After some research I need to replace the mechanism with an 18 note "magic flute" by Mozart. The one inside is badly broke and I just cant fix it even with hours of work on it. The cylinder just wont be seated when I try to mount the winding mechanism on. Its now in pieces.
There doesn't seem to be any available online, Does anyone know of a seller? They are very cheap (eBay etc) but I cant find "magic flute" and this is really essential for him. Any other ideas much appreciated.
