Davy Jones' Music Box

Eu tinha visto à venda na Casa da Música uns kits de "caixa de musica" que me despertaram um desejo de as possuir. Mas o preço é proibitivo - 80€... Um dia resolvi procurar na net e reparei que eram extremamente baratas online nos EUA - 14$ - mas os portes de envio aumentavam o preço pra 30$ e poucos. Foi então que pensei que talvez pudesse comprar de uma loja sediada na união europeia e foi aí que encontrei a mesma caixa de música no Grand Illusions, à venda por 17£, e com portes reduzidos a brincadeira ficou-me por cerca de 24€ - muito longe dos 80 que a Casa da Musica pede.

I had seen a "music box kit" for sale at the Casa da Musica Shop. But the price there was too hight - 80€. One day I decided to search it on the internet and I noticed they were extremelly cheat in the USA - 14$ - but the sending fees were expensive. I thought there must be a place in the EU I could get it, and I was right. I found the same "Teanola" music box for sale at Grand Illusions - 17£ - so with the all the fees it came down to 24€ - far from the 80 at Casa da Musica.

A caixinha vem com uma tira pré programada e duas em branco. Depois de as utilizar e não me apetecendo comprar mais, desenhei um template e imprimi. Depois fiz a transcrição do Davy Jones' Theme (ou este) do filme Pirates of the Caribean: At World's End. Está longe de estar perfeito, mas deixo aqui um video e o pdf para quem tiver uma caixa de musica destas, pode sacar e imprimir.

The little "box" comes with a pre-programmed paper strip and to blank ones. After using the blank ones I decided to make my own instead of buying more. I made a template which I share here. I also share the transcript I made of Davy Jones' Theme (or here) from Pirates of the Caribean: At World's End. It's far from perfect but whoever owns a music box kit like this can print the pdf and make it. I leave you with a video of the tune played in my music box.

    Hello,
    I found your website by looking for paper strip music box tunes. I've got a music box like the one you've got but I don't know a thing about music (I don't know how to transcript a tune because I can't even understand music notes)so I'm looking for paper strips to copy.
    I loved the Davy Jones strip, it was very nice of you to share, but I wondered if you had any other strip you could share ? I saw the avril 14th video on youtube but I can't copy the strip just by looking at the holes...
    If you have anything you could share with me, please email me to anngela@live.fr !

    PS: If you want, I have the "Ode of Joy" strip.

  2. Agradeço a recomendação. Também já tinha visto o Kit da Casa da Música para oferecer ao meu filho este Natal e achei que o mesmo estava exponencialmente elevado. Vou seguir a tua sugestão. Continuação de um óptimo trabalho!
