Description

Do Re Mi Fa So La Ti Do. As Julie Andrews said in the Sound of Music, “onceyou have these notes in your heads you can sing a million different tunes bymixing them up.” Ugears is proud to introduce the second DIY musicalinstrument in our collection—the Mechanical Celesta. Like the UgearsHurdy-Gurdy, the Mechanical Celesta is both a wooden mechanical model and afunctional musical instrument. This special musical model is a simpler versionof a pianola, and includes elements of a piano, a music box, and a xylophone.There are two modes of playing the instrument: you can use the keys to strikethe metal plates, producing musical notes over an octave range, from C to C, oryou can “pre-program” the instrument by composing a melody on the playerpiano drum, then play it by turning the knob!

When you buy the Mechanical Celesta by Ugears and start to assemble it, youwill find that the instructions show how to install the programming pins usingthe Carol of the Bells melody as an example. And it's not only becauseChristmas is coming. On October 5 this year it will be 100 years since thepremiere of “Shchedryk” by Ukrainian composer Mykola Leontovych at CarnegieHall. Today it’s known to the whole world as Carol of the Bells. The songsounds great when performed on your Mechanical Celesta by Ugears. Thiscentennial is why we released the model this year and why it's so specialto us.

Thanks to the Mechanical Celesta's ease of use, even the smallest child orthose without any prior musical knowledge can begin to play music, by strikingthe keys or turning the crank to produce pre-programmed melodies. In “manualmode” when you press a key, the hammer strikes the plate and the sound of thecorresponding note is heard. In “programmed melody mode” you arrange aseries of boards along a rotating drum, then turn the drum as pins on each boardtrigger the hammers to strike the right notes.

This fun DIY musical model / 3D puzzle consists of 573 pieces and promises8 hours of enjoyable assembly time. The Mechanical Celesta is rated“intermediate” difficulty. In addition to laser pre-cut high quality plywoodboards, the model kit also includes cotton ropes, wooden balls and metal plates.To assemble, follow the detailed, illustrated instructions available in11 languages (Ukrainian, English, German, Spanish, French, Italian, Portuguese,Polish, Japanese, Chinese, and Korean). You don't need glue or special tools toassemble your Mechanical Celesta. Everything you need to build your functionalmusical instrument comes right in the box.
