15.5 inch Regina - Short Bedplate - Serpentine- Restored for sale

The short bedplate Regina music box was a late development marking the apex of Regina sound. These special machines incorporated a bedplate half the width of the case, and a second upper sounding board. The result was a brilliant spectacular musical experience, even in comparison to earlier Regina models. Short bedplate machines are always double comb, and because of their superlative sound always command a premium among music box connoisseurs.

This example had been restored by someone on the East Coast around 20-25 years ago. The combs are nice and clean, the leads show no oxidation, and the dampers are in regulation. It looks as if everything on the upperworks has been cleaned and polished. Just to make this absolutely perfect, we cleaned, pulled and re-greased the mainspring for extra smooth running, a big job, but helpful to keep the mainspring from sticking to itself as it unwinds.

The serpentine oak case has been nicely refinished.

Everything runs and sounds exactly as it is supposed to.

You will never find a better example of a 15.5 inch Regina than this machine.

Includes a dozen original Regina discs.
