Custom, On-Request Discs

In addition to our extensive current Catalog of music, HensTooth Discs can provide discs of virtually any new tune you want, for several types and sizes of Musical Boxes.

We often receive inquiries for special music from persons who do not already own a Disc Music Box, and who wish to learn more about the various options available. If you would like to know more about the various types of Music Boxes for which we can provide custom discs, please skip down to the next section.

For those of you who already know which type/size of Disc you need, here is some important information:

Additional Information:

Music from any source may be requested. You may even provide original music you have written yourself.

VERY IMPORTANT: If the music you request is under copyright protection, permission from the copyright owner is required before we can produce a disc for you. There are two ways we can do this:
1/ HensTooth Discs can file for permission from the copyright owner or agent. The fee for this is $80 billable to customer.
2/ We can produce a disc for you as a "work for hire". Under this arrangement, you (the customer) are responsible for obtaining the necessary permission from the copyright owner.


If you do not already own a Disc Musical Box, here are some things to keep in mind:

1/ Disc music boxes vary greatly in price, availability, and ability to play more complex arrangements.
I usually recommend one of two types, either a Thorens 4.5" or a Regina/Polyphon 15.5" disc music box. There are other types, but these two represent either ends of the possibilities in terms of these additional considerations:

2/ Length of playing time: The Thorens can play approx. 26 seconds of music (before repeating). The 15.5" Regina/Polyphon can play approx. 1 minute.

3/ Complexity of the music: The Thorens has a much more limited pitch range, and can play only simpler arrangements. (You can hear some examples HERE.)

4/ Associated Costs: As mentioned, disc music boxes vary greatly in price. An old Thorens (no longer made but available on Ebay) can be found in the $100 - $300 dollar range, and a new Reuge disc music box is sold by Reuge of Switzerland for approx $1600.
15.5" Reginas/Polyphons are no longer made, but can be found on Ebay in the $2000 - $6000 range.
