Insane 50-Note Final Fantasy VII Music Box

Final Fantasy VII Aerith's Music Box

I’ve always had a fascination with music boxes.  They may have gone the way of vinyl and become a novelty for collectors, but there’s always a certain level of care and craftsmanship involved in creating one. That’s something I can respect, not only as a musician but as an artist. That’s why I freaked out the moment I saw this — a limited edition 50 note music box featuring Aerith’s theme from Final Fantasy VII. Supposedly, only a thousand of these boxes were ever produced, and they’re highly sought after. Finding one for sale is next to impossible, but anyone willing to part with it can usually ask for over a thousand dollars to start. To see it in action, click here.

So, what makes this box so special? Aside from its limited production run, most music boxes only contain eighteen notes which repeat. This box actually contains three sections of the original song, with fifty notes total. It’s almost as having three music boxes in one. Couple that with some fantastic craftsmanship and exotic curubixa wood, and you have a fine piece of art. What I love is that the words Final Fantasy seem to be completely absent from the plaque, letting the music stand on its own. It’s really a beautiful piece.
