According to the website, I can print the hole punch cut out. When comparing it to my strips however, the size is one cell too small. I want to be able to print the strips, and tape them on my roll of strip so I can punch the holes and remove it after, but the strips don't fit.
What can I do to fix this? By the way, I am printing with a Brother HL-L2360D Series Printer and have tried many settings to get them to fit. But I get that close with my scale as Actual Size (100%) and am printing on a paper size of Letter. And yes, I am exporting the PDF as Letter. So, it should fit...! I think it's because my music box accepts wider strips, so I can't just use the PDF from here. If anyone can help, please do. I have been trying to solve this for over a year now...
Hi everyone! I have a problem with a 30 note music box. After a few uses of a strip it started to slip sometimes from the moving mechanism. Is this common with this type of music boxes? Do anyone have the same problem? Any solutions?
I just recently bought a music box for my girlfriend to celebrate our 1 year anniversary coming up. However, when I received it, I opened it up to listen to the quality of the music.
The quality sounds absolutely fantastic, but there's a noise that's holding the quality back from being perfect. There's a tingy noise that plays before and after some of the notes. It almost sounds like some of the combs are gently scraping against the wheel.
Does anyone have experience with this? If so, what should I do?
I would post a video, but I don't see any media attach option on this forum. I just created this account to address this specific reason.
I recently bought a 30-note music box from ebay, the kind which lets you make your own song sheets and play them. What bothers me is that some notes make a slight buzzing sound, as if theyre touching something, and sometimes the notes dont ring out completely. Is there any way I can fix this? I'd add a video but there isn't an option to do that.
Hi all. I'm new at this, so maybe anyone is familar with this issue and knows what to do.
I got "Celin Dion - My heart will go on" song file sample (from seller), marked and punched wholes (i got 30 notes Wingostore music box). Then played couple times - it sounded perfect. However, later when I tried to play one more time, begining was ok, but ending was like from horror movie. I analysed and find out, that paper strip moved a bit (1-2 mm) to one side (and wholes as well), so that was the reason. Paper strip side isn't damaged (at least i dont see).
i'm marking the notes on my 30 note strip paper, and since I don't really understand music, i'm just following the PDF made for my song. on the website's template, the note is D, but when I count by lines, it gets to D#. is it supposed to be like that? sorry for the silly question lol i fr don't understand much about it
After months of experimenting, I've finally found the right combination of machine, paper, and software to automatically cut music box strips, rather than having to punch the holes by hand. This process utilizes a consumer-level Cricut cutting machine. I've made a tutorial video that walks you through the process:
I was inspired by previous Wintergatan attempts, but this approach is much cleaner, more user friendly, and even incorporates the Cricut's drawing function to decorate the music box strips. I'm happy to answer any questions, if you have them.
Hi! I'm a long time user of this site and I'm so glad it exists, but there's one thing bothering me: landscape A4 paper can fit just about 3 lines of 30 notes music paper, however, the pdf exports has margins that makes the prints only 2 lines tall, leaving a huge margin at the bottom.
