The Music Box is a Hardmode Accessory that can be purchased from the Wizard. When the Music Box is equipped, it will record the currently playing game music, after a randomized delay. This includes tracks being played by other Music Boxes. Once recorded, it will change into one of the music boxes listed below.

A recorded Music Box can be played back in one of two ways:

  • Equipping it as an accessory
  • Placing it as furniture and activating it, either by right-click or with wires.
