Bruno Mars - Just The Way You Are,
0:25 - 0:45"
IMPORTANT: make sure the length of the fragment is 14 – 24 seconds (music box limitation).
Due to music box limitations, not all songs can be converted into a nice sounding music box melody. Rap/hip hop, jazz and songs with a lot of repeating notes would not work out well.
Usually, the best part would be a chorus. Please send the song original and not a piano/music box version.
⚠️ If your desired song cannot be converted into a music box melody, your payment will be refunded.
⚠️ If, after hearing the digital audio demo you decide you don't want to continue, there will be a $30 fee for demo.
⚠️ Due to the natural difference between the audio demo (digital) and the actual music box (mechanical), there might be a slight difference on how they sound.
