Sympathetic Buzz in Music Box
By John McClure

Thanks to all the responses to the lid support question on my model 20
11" Regina.  I have halfway solved the buzz problem I inquired about
also.  This is the case:

When I hold my finger or put a damper on the fast-slow-stop lever the
buzzing stops, but when released the lever or the connecting mechanism
seems to buzz sympathetically with the very strong tones of the
mechanism.  Has anyone had this problem and know the solution?

I am so amazed with the beauty of this rather small disc box that
I have ordered from Porter Music Box a number of their discs, and would
like to report on their customer service, friendliness and quality
product and quick shipping.  I am also ordering from Barry Johnson for
the quality old standards.  The new (meaning recognizable) tunes for
the under-45 crowd are great.

I am also approaching the completion of a year long restoration of
a Reproduco, and will report the details and recommendations of all who
helped when it finally is playing

Thanks, John McClure
