A look at the beautiful The Phantom of the Opera music box with turbin. This is a must have for any fan of the musical or movie.


This is a story about a music box with a turbine. The music box was given to the protagonist by a friend, and it soon became his most treasured possession. The turbine, however, began to act up and make strange noises. Eventually, the turbine became possessed by the spirit of the protagonist’s dead girlfriend, and she began to haunt him through the music box. The only way to get rid of her ghost was to destroy the music box.

The Music Box

The Phantom of the Opera music box with a turban is a replica of the music box that was used in the 1924 silent film version of The Phantom of the Opera. This music box is made of high quality materials and is a must have for any Phantom of the Opera fan.

The Design

The box is simple in design with a black finish and gold trim. The lid is hinged and opens to reveal a glass dome. Inside the dome is a miniature stage with red velvet curtains. On the stage is a music box in the shape of a turbine. The music box turns as it plays the theme from The Phantom of the Opera.

The box is lined with black velvet and has a removable glass cover. The cover can be used to display the music box when it is not in use. The box measures 4 inches square and 2 inches tall. It comes with a key to wind the music box and an instruction booklet.

The Mechanics

The music box is a type of clockwork device that plays a musical melody when wound up. The earliest music boxes date back to the 18th century, and they were most popular in the 19th and early 20th centuries.

Music boxes work by using a rotating cylinder or disc with teeth that pluck the tuned teeth of a steel comb. The comb has a series of different-sized prongs that create different pitches when they vibrate. The cylinder or disc is turned by a spring or crank, and as it turns, the teeth pluck the comb to play the melody.

Tune plates are used to create the repetitive sound loop that is characteristic of music boxes. The tune plate has raised bumps or ridges that correspond to the notes in the melody. As the cylinder or disc turns, the bumps trigger a mechanism that makes the steel comb pluck the correct sequence of notes to play the tune.

The Turbin

The Phantom of the Opera music box with Turbin is a must-have for Phantom fans. The music box plays the famous theme song from the movie, and the Turbin revolves around the music box, creating a enchanting and mesmerizing display.

The Design

The design of the Turbin is based on the traditional music box. It is a simple rectangular box with a hinged lid. The lid is decorated with a print of the Phantom of the Opera. The box has a small turntable on the top, which is used to play the music.

The box is made of wood, and the lid is lined with velvet. The inside of the box is divided into two compartments. One compartment contains the turntable, and the other contains the music box mechanism.

The Turbin is powered by a winding key that is attached to the side of the box. The key winds up the music box mechanism, which plays a tinkling melody when turned. The music box mechanism can be replaced with a different one if desired, but it must be wound up manually each time it is used.

The Turbin comes with two removable spindles, one for playing 45 RPM records and one for playing 78 RPM records. It also comes with an adapter for playing 33 1/3 RPM records. The spindles are made of metal, and each has a small rubber pad on the end to prevent slipping.

The Turbin can be placed on any flat surface, such as a table or shelf. It makes an interesting decoration for any room in your home, and it also makes a great gift for anyone who loves music boxes or Phantom of the Opera memorabilia.

The Mechanics

The Turbin is a music box with a difference – it has a rotating centre stage!

The ‘Turbin’ was patented in 1873 by Henri Auguste (1833-1902) who was the principle of a large clock making firm in Saint-Denis, North of Paris.

The mechanism is quite simple. It consists of two horizontal plates, one above the other. The lower plate has a raised edge all the way around it, and the upper plate has a matching depressed groove. There are also four vertical posts around the edge of the upper plate. The whole assembly is mounted on a base so that it can rotate.

There are four cam discs, one for each post. These are mounted on the underside of the upper plate so that they rotate with it. Each disc has four notches cut into its circumference, and these line up with the posts when the disc is in the correct position. The notches determine how far each post can move up and down.

The posting spring sits in the groove around the edge of the lower plate. It’s coiled around one of the posts, and passes through two small holes in each cam disc as they rotate. This means that as each disc turns, it raises or lowers the posting spring slightly according to which notch it’s lined up with at any given time.

The posting spring provides tension to counteractthe weightofthe music comb and cylindersand keepsthem from saggingor droopingwhen they are played. It also ensuresthat themusic stopsplaying when thereachthe endoftheir travel .


Now that you know about the different types of roast, it’s time to decide which one is right for you. If you’re looking for a light and delicate flavor, a light roast is the way to go. If you prefer a bolder coffee with more body, a dark roast is probably what you’re after. And if you like your coffee somewhere in between, medium roast is probably your best bet. No matter what your preference, there’s a coffee out there with the perfect roast for you.
