My music boxes (or musical boxes or musicboxes) suitable for Christmas, birthdays, weddings and any other occasion, decorated with ornaments, from beech wood in natural or mahogany / walnut finish (a few other colors). All my works are handmade and only available in limited quantities. I use high-quality materials and I own unique technologies.

I build the music box (a hand-powered instrument, capable of playing a short tune) in a wooden case decorated with motifs cut out with a fretsaw or engraved.
Due to the technical characteristics of the instrument, a slight metal noise is heard as it plays (metal comb teeth are plucked by metal pins while rotating the cylinder with the ratchet lever, which inevitably produces some noise). Unlike digital instruments, a mechanical music box can never offer a clear, noise-free audio experience.

Payment: I prefer PayPal and Direct Checkout, except for domestic customers.
Shipping: I ship with FEDEX, and the estimated delivery time is about 3-5 working days. Items are shipped on weekdays, maximum 3 days after payment was recieved (the amount appear in the Esty account or PayPal).

I was not expecting this to be as small as it was. It also doesn't play as well as it could. its very choppy sounding and I'm not very satisfied with this product

Thank you for your review. I'm so sorry for your dissatisfaction. Product description includes everything exactly, size, the link of the music in mp3, and there is always a picture of the size of the music box (by this item in the third picture in a lady's hand). And if you have any question, I'm at your service before order. I'm very sorry you not to have used this possibility. Here is the exact copy from this item description: Size: ~ 2 1/2" x 2 5/64" (~ 63 mm x 53 mm) Height: ~ 1 1/2" ( ~ 38 mm) Material: Beech wood in mahogany finish Model: Moon Melody: Beethoven: Moonlight Sonata Listen to it: http://holdnaputan.hu/zenedoboz/13holdfeny.mp3 https://img1.etsystatic.com/000/0/6559795/il_570xN.278928289.jpg 13holdfeny
