Music For Future Music Boxes

Sampling of New Music for 15.5" Regina/Polyphon 
and similar Musical Boxes

Priced at $15

All of the selections here have been musically arranged so that an actual metal disc could be punched for an antique 15 1/2" Regina/Polyphon disc musical box. The tunes are heard on this CD as rendered by the MusicBox15 simulator. They sound very similar to what you would hear from an actual musical box playing the disc.

Actual Metal Discs Are Now Available!
