The specific wood used for the construction is one of the most amazing and important pieces. The wood used in the construction comes from a Swiss Riboud Forest, which is characterized by harsh winters with limited soil fertility. The environment dictates that trees grow slowly and gradually, which results in a dense wood structure. It is therefore ideal for making instruments.
Even the climate alone is insufficient, and only a few trees meet the criteria. One tree in 10,000 is all that's needed. The selection of the appropriate pieces is what gives the product its charm and soul. Lorenzo Pellegrini is the expert who performs this task. He climbs up the spruces in order to inspect their properties, even though he is over 70 years old. The tree is then cut after the trunk has been selected. It is best to do this in November, when the resin content is lowest.breitling chronomat b01 gmt replica It is then dried for between 5 and 10 years before being treated with varnish.
The soundboard is actually a sandwich of two wooden elements. This is a trick to get a louder tone without increasing the size of the resonating chamber.
Aluminum Tail BoomThe last element in the MusicMachnie 2 construction is the part that connects the soundboard with the movement. In this case, the movement takes on the role of the strings of an instrumental. Reuge's expertise was vital at this stage. Reuge has a 150-year reputation as a pioneer of the music box industry. They designed, together with JMC Lutherie a tail boom of aluminum that is renowned for its superior sound conductivity.Rolex Daytona Replica The boom was placed with heat-blued screw on the correct part of the carbon on one end and on specific parts of movements where most of the sound is produced and where the combs were positioned. The tail boom is used to transfer vibrations in the same way as a bridge on a classical string instrument. Vent holes in the dome are then used to release sound from the soundboard.
All the traits explained together point to a complex, futuristic musical box that is a thing more of the past - despite its superior appearance and technology. It is evident that this item will be a holy-grail for those who love music boxes, sci-fi, and rock music. breitling chronomat b01 gmt replica MusicMachine 2, which is available in different versions, has different finishes for the steel dome.
