We’ll be at the “Rock Around the Jukebox” exhibition at Rosemalen (Netherland) And we’re so happy
I’ve previously written that we’ve missed “Rock around the Jukebox” at Rosemalen (Netherlands) .
Actually we were on the waiting list and only 3 days before the event,it was clear for us that we couldn’t exhibit at the most famous exhibition in Europe.
But we’ve received a call that has delighted us 🙂
We’ve obtained A small (but precious) place of 3 meters and we will be there !!!!
We will have to improvise as we have only two days to organize the event (it’s a bit short), but at least we will be there!
Come and see our wallboxes operating and if you’ve already purchased a wallbox2mp3, bring it and we’ll update it to the new V1.3 for free! It is for us the opportunity to gather your opinions, your ideas, etc …. And even if you’re not interested by our wallbox2mp3, this show is definitely the best I’ve never seen !!!
The wallbox2mp3 V1.3 is available! And we’ve also improved our software
This new version includes :
– The ability to have a continuous background music play selected randomly when you make no selection, ideal when you drink a beer at home with friends 🙂
– An extended compatibility list with new wallboxes.And as much of our customers have asked us,this new version is compatible with wallboxes Rowe Ami WRA, WRB and WRC, but also much others wallboxes !
The new full compatibility list is available in the support section of the site.
– A new improved way to manage random musics when no choice is made that’s more …. “Randomly”.
The software also has many improvements while remaining backward compatible with previous wallbox2mp3’s hardware :
– The new wallbox2mp3’software now allows you to change the order of your selections according to your wishes
– It offers you to print a summary of the order of your selections along with your labels to keep the thread when labels were cut.
– It incorporates the new features of the wallbox2mp3’s hardware with new wallboxes, the ability to choose a random continuous music, etc …
Unfortunately,we’ve not been able to have a place for Rosemalen in October,but Sylvain that never miss Rosemalen’s exhibition will be there. So if you need more informations or to buy a wallbox2mp3 system,you’ll be able to meet him this week end.If you want to meet him,You can call at : 00336 64 91 39 70 .
He’ll bring a couple of new wallbox2mp3 V1.3 system with a bigger compatibility list ( now including for example the famous Rowe Ami WRA,WRB and WRC ).
Located in France, in the Sarthe, between Paris and Le Mans, near the A11 motorway,
the museum of mechanical music is a great place to go.
Its goal is to present a collection of musical instruments covering a period from 1800 to the 60's.
Obviously, you will discover an incredible amount of rare mechanisms in perfect condition.
But even more,it's the framework that will delight you. Indeed, the museum doesn't just give you
an endless inventory of exceptions mechanisms,but it also places them in the context of the time.
Thus, within the museum, you will enter in a cinema of the 20s fully restored and you'll enjoy a drink
in a bar of the 30s.
In short, the museum offer you a getaway outside of time.
You will see music boxes, phonographs, etc ....
But you'll also find juboxes and wallboxes
It has notably the famous Scopitone, the 1st Jukebox able to display movies!
We met Mr Corbin, the Director of the museum, while our wallbox2mp3 was in development. Such
a passionnate couldn't accept that some of its wallbox couldn't play music as he didn't have the
As he is dramaticaly competent, he had associated with our project and helped us to improve
our wallbox2mp3 in many ways.
He has done an excellent tutorial about installing the Wallbox2mp3 in Wurlitzer Fernwhal Box 160 .
This tutorial is available in the support section of our website.

One of the rooms from the museum that we loved (you can see on the wall a Wurlitzer Fernwhal
Box 160 equipped with our wallbox2mp3) :
This Rock Ola 1555 is simply the most beautiful wallbox that I have ever seen
Make no mistake about it,there is no advertising here.I think that its owner would rather miss 50 years of the famous Rock around the jukebox in Netherland than selling its wallbox.
Just a quick note to talk about this little wonder. On the way to the Dutch salon of Rosemalen, we took the opportunity to visit a friend.
A great memory! Hardly entered, I was flabbergasted by his 1555 Rock-ola. Like new, despite its advanced age. And needless to propose a wallbox2mp3.It was directly wired to the stepper of its jukebox while passing the wires behind the walls ; a must!
He made a work of craftsmanship, everything was perfectly chrome plated.Obviously the wallbox perfectly operates, moreover the inside of the Rock Ola is also just as new !
his recommendationsv? First find an elite chromer. Indeed he had much disappointments in previous chrome plating. Finding a good professional in this field is a true mess.
Congratulations , this Rock Ola 1555 is the most beautiful wallbox that I have ever seen!
And make no mistake, the pictures taken here are real and not photoshoped.this 1555 is as beautiful in real life than on the web.I would have dreamed of equipping it with a wallbox2mp3 and showing it playing a selection through our adapter. Too bad 🙂
Some additional pictures of the consolette for your viewing pleasure:
We’ve received a new maravelous wallbox from USA !
Sylvain has just received a new Wallbox from Chicag o. It’s a very rare item called Buckley ” Music Box ” from Buckley Music system . This wallbox is a very old one as it’s from 1939 . It just operates exactly as the Packard Pla-mor system , with much wires and 24 selections.So,we’ve just decided to try to connect it to our packard2mp3 system and it just perfectly plays te right selection . So,even if this wallbox is just so much rare and difficult to find, we are going to modify our packard2mp3 manual to include the installation of the Buckley music box .
Here is the Wallbox :
It’s clearly not the most beautiful wallbox I’ve ever seen but it has a real vintage charm.My table has just fall in love with it. One more wallbox to include in the wallbox2mp3 compatibility list.
Thanks to Rosemalen salon, we were able to buy new wallbox.We are going to be able to make them work with the wallbox2mp3 .
We bought :
A Wurlitzer 5207 , produced between 1957 and 1961. This wallbox offers 104 selections. Selections are indexed by page. It was initially working with the Wurlitzer model 1900 Centennial .
Luckily , this Wurlitzer 5207 is complete and very clean,last but not least it works.
The wallbox signal is decoded and will be included in the compatibility list of the V1.2 wallbox2mp3 .
A beautiful consolette , complete and in good condition. Signed Rudolph Wurlitzer Co., the 3020 was produced in 1946. Only 24 selections are available.This jukebox wallbox is distinguished from others by the fact that it has a built-in transformer 110V / 24V . It does not require to be supplied with 24V like any other but 110V . Europe will therefore need a 220V / 110V transformer to operate . This small wallbox release will also be decoded and included in the compatibility list of wallbox2mp3 V1.2
The wallbox2mp3 is finally ready.We have to rapidly launch a big production.
But first,we need to communicate ,to let the world know that jukebox wallbox are still alive,they’re not just a beautiful collector,they can act as real jukebox !
Our first event is certainly th best one. We’ve choice to show for the first time our wallbox2mp3 on the biggest European Jukebox event : ” Rock Around the Jukebox” in Rosmalen , Netherland !
We’ll have only a few items to sell and maybe not any ( depending of our production time ),but we’ll be able to show about 10 jukebox wallbox playing like in their early ages and obviously with their customized titlestrips 🙂
So we’re late but our machines are working hard to be able to present the wallbox2mp3 systems.
Today our CNC builds covers for the Seeburg DEC wallbox :
And our little Chinese pick and place builds the electronic part night and day ,here also for the seeburg DEC :
A product finally ready, a production to launch quickly, we are finally in the phase or we need to know. Our first show is choice, the famous Rock around the Jukebox to Rosemalen in the Netherlands which is certainly the largest exhibition in Europe in this area.
We have only very few products for sale (depending on the progress of our production during these next two days), but we can do inventory of ten wallbox working as on the first day 🙂 with their assorted titlestrips.
We cross our fingers that the Dutch we should welcome.
So here, as always we are late, but all our machines heat (because Yes, we have a small production workshop and map is entirely made in France).
CNC (digital milling for connoisseurs) prepares the covers (protection polycarbonate above the PCB), in this case the cover of a Wallbox2mp3 model consolette Seeburg DEC:
And our little Chinese, valiant machine placement of components on the surface (pick and place for respondents) working at sunset, also producing the Seeburg DEC electronic cards:
