Once we receive your order, you will be charged 50% of the total.
For custom tunes, if you have your own recording, please email it to us at info@themusichouse.com

We will immediately begin work on your movement, and within 1-2 weeks, send you a sample MP3 file of how your custom movement will sound (the musical arrangement). If you approve, we will begin machining your movement right away.
After approval, within 4-6 weeks, we will send you  the completed custom musical movement  order and charge the remainder of the balance.

If you would like to place the movement(s) in a music box, please let us know which box you would like and the quantity. You can select from music boxes that say "New Reuge Collection (1.36) "  next to them.   Pricing of the music box depends on the quantity.  After placing your order for the mechanism, contact us to discuss pricing.

Obtaining Music Rights

If the song you wish to put in your custom music box is your own composition, you need only send us a simple fax or letter with a short statement saying you are the author of the work, that we have your permission, and your signature.

If the song you wish to use was written by someone else, such as a popular tune played over the air, we will need to obtain permission from the publisher to mechanically reproduce it as a music box movement. This permission is called a synchronization (aka merchandising or novelty) rights license. To obtain this license, we will contact the publisher (or author in some cases) to get that signed permission. We make a quick search of the three major performing rights organizations to see which one handles that song, do a song search for the contact info for that artist/publisher on their website, and contact the artist/publisher for permission. Depending on the tune, the publisher and time spent on legal work, there could be a charge of $35 to $250.

Occasionally there is an extra licensing fee, in that case, we will email you before we proceed. If you have the permission, then just fax a signed copy to us.
