This symphonion is a double comb unit and plays 8 1/4 inch disks. 13 disks, all original (no reproductions) and as such, several have rust areas. Not perfect – all seem to be in playable condition, however. The mainspring, gears, governor, and movement appear to be in good condition. Free of rust and no teeth are missing. All starwheels move freely. The bass teeth have experienced some white corrosion over time, however, and. Dampers are in good condition they will definitely need. Adjustment as some of the notes do not. Resonate as they should. Parts are nicely polished and the wood case is in excellent. Condition with the exception of a 1mm x 9mm. Chip in the veneer on the right side of the box see. Pictures c and m detail. In general, in my opinion, this unit is in better-than-average condition. Again, in order for this unit to work perfectly, some. The damper adjustment and lower frequency teeth will be necessary. Please note that the video below was done with my smartphone. And, of course, the sound reproduction leaves something to be desired! The following 13 disks are included with the music box. Keep in mind that these original disks. Are about 120 years old and although some are cosmetically “challenged” and have rust in spots. They are all functional. Ghalm is the sea. Shier 30 german song. Runsleben (strauss no, 127).
