The Incredible £14,000 Sci-Fi Music Box

This ludicrous £15,000 music box is boldly going where no other music box has gone before.

First up there’s the sleek spaceship façade. Next is the fact it’s tuned up to play the themes from Star Trek and Star Wars. But what makes it truly special, what justifies that eye-watering price-tag, is that this is the world’s first music box to come with a built-in amplifier.

For a good while now, MB&F Refuge, the world’s premier manufacturer of music boxes, have been taking people’s perceptions of the format (imposing Russian ballerina figurines, timeworn Beethoven pieces) and changing it for the better, with this one just plain showing off.

After all, how many music boxes do you know that have been forged from 350yr old resonant spruce from the Risoud Forest of Switzerland? We’ll answer that for you: just this one.

And don’t worry about having the Imperial March ringing around your head for days, either. This hybrid of geek art and musical engineering is also primed to play tunes by The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin and the Clash.

Limited to a production number of five exclusively for Hodinkee, if you’re nerding out and have pockets deep enough then we suggest you visit the site and place an order as soon as possible.

If J.J Abrams fails to unite the respective fans of Star Wars and Star Trek, this should do the job.
