Here's a recording of a little music box that plays happy birthday. I got it as a birthday gift from my parents and put a piezo pickup mic with preamp in the sigar box. I played it at 3 different speeds with the last one being note for note.

Here's one that has a pull cord and plays London Bridge. This one used to hang next to my bed when I was a little boy (it's pretty much as old as me). I taped a piezo pickup to the back to record it.

This is a different kind of music box, it only has 3 'notes' and the sound is more mechanical. Again recorded with a piezo pickup mic.

got some new ones (incl 2 toy TV's)
this time I'm recording with a soundboard made of a serving tray with 2 piezo pickups and a preamp.

here's the first one (the shrolling TV part is a bit worn out adding some extra sounds)
