The Music Box Industry Then And Now

SONY DSCCopyright 2006 Monique Hawkins

It has been over 200 years since the music box was invented in 1796. There were many influences, which impacted its development. It wasn’t until 1815 that the music box industry finally became organized on a company basis. Manufacturing practices and techniques made it possible to start producing them in 1840. However, only special designs with two or more combs or with mandolin combs were made. It wasn’t until 1860 that manufacturers began to think about mass production.

Initially, the qualities of manufactured music boxes were quite good. However, due to an increase in the rate of production, factories’ technology was unable to keep up and therefore the quality of music boxes was lowered.

In 1890, the disc machines that were made challenged the cylinder music box. Disc boxes became popular and were manufactured rapidly. Large quantities were produced over a period of 25 years until 1914 when World War I began. Due to the great need for accurate reproduction during the war (which greatly helped the on-going development of the phonograph), and the great capabilities of the gramophone, the need

Music is So Much Easier to Come by Now

I just love music. I like to listen to many different types. It is not that I am not picky, because I am. I don’t like every song that I hear. I just like different genres, which I have read is a sign of an intelligent mind. I don’t know if that’s true, but I will certainly take that compliment. I recently found this really cool website called that allows you to download music. I have been visiting the site every day since I found it.

I really enjoy downloading music that I can listen to again and again. I grew up at a time where you had to use cassettes to record songs off the radio that you liked. You literally had to sit next to your radio and wait for one song to end and another one to start. Then, you immediately had to press record. If the song was good, you continued to record. Read more

The Importance Of Branding Music Merchandise

Musicians these days have a very difficult time selling their music; most of it falls victim to piracy. Thats why its more important now than ever before to sell as much merchandise shirts, posters, buttons, etc. as humanly possible. Some bands are better at this than others, but one band stands above them all: Insane Clown Posse.

One of the most impressive things about the Insane Clown Posse isnt their success, their hatchetman logo, their enormous Juggalo fan base, their own festival, their wrestling league or their expansive record label — its their unprecedented line of merchandise, or ICP gear. Thats why artist merchandise like ICPs gear is so important it goes a long way in making up for lost revenue from illegally downloaded CDs.

Necessity of the Hatchetman

Merchandise is much easier to sell when theres a recognizable brand or logo plastering the item. When people like associating with your brand, theyll take every opportunity they can to do so. Most artists have logos built around their name, but nothing more.

What makes ICP exceptional is that they have a band name, an aptly named record label (Psychopathic Records), a name for their
