Musicbox (musical box) Gounod: Ave Maria




Gounod's 1852 melody is a superimposition above the Prelude in C major by J. S. Bach. The French composer originally adapted Lamartine's verses to the melody, which he arranged for violin and piano in 1859, at the same time setting the words of Ave Maria to it.

Model: ZD04





Size: ~ 63 mm x 53 mm
Height: ~ 38 mm
Material: Beech wood in natural or mahogany/walnut finish

We build the musical box (a hand-powered instrument, capable of playing a short tune) in a wooden case decorated with motifs cut out with a fretsaw.
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 musical box can never offer a clear, noise-free audio experience.
