The Mechanical Celesta is a recent release from Ugears, a Ukrainian manufacturer of 3D wooden puzzles. The model is a simpler version of a pianola with two playing modes: in manual mode, you press keys to hit the metal plates, and in pre-programmed mode, you turn a piano drum with a crank.
October 5, 2022 marks the 100th anniversary of the premiere of Ukrainian composer Mykola Leontovych’s “Shchedryk” at Carnegie Hall. Today, this magnificent piece of music is known worldwide as “Carol of the Bells”. After assembling the Mechanical Celesta from Ugears, refer to the instructions for how to program the instrument to play this famous Christmas song. Delicious chimes sound great on your mechanical Celesta by Ugears!
The Ugears Hurdy-Gurdy is inspired by the art of medieval craftsmen and combines the challenge of construction with the joy of music. The model promises 8 hours of fun building time. Turn the handle to strum the drone string and press the wooden keys to play the tune of your choice, from medieval folk tunes to modern dance melodies.
Ugears models are known for their elaborate mechanisms, ingenious and elegant design and fancy touches. The wooden models work without batteries or electricity. You won’t need any glue or additional tools for assembly, just laser cut the pieces from their pre-cut boards and snap them together. These models are designed for ages 14 and up and are a great idea for a fun family weekend or a personal challenge!
