The Music Box is a Hardmode Accessory that is purchased from the Wizard for 10 . When the Music Box is equipped in an accessory slot, 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.

Notes[edit | edit source]
- A Music Box will not record if the game's music volume is set to 0.
- Music Boxes will record other placed Music Boxes. This is useful if you need multiple music boxes for a large area.
- If it is an event music, it may take multiple attempts to record the music.
- For bosses, it is best to play chicken with them, i.e. running away without dealing damage to allow maximum time for the music box to record the track.
- Music Boxes have a range of 200 feet (100 tiles). If the ranges of two active Music Boxes overlap, the ranges will not be averaged. Instead, one Music Box will play at full range and the other will not.
- The Title Music Box is crafted with "Overworld Day" -- it cannot be crafted with "Alt Overworld Day".
- The Title Music Box is crafted with "Underground" -- it cannot be crafted with "Alt Underground".
- While the Title Music Box has to be crafted first, it can be recorded if another Title Music Box is present.
- Unlike most equipped accessories, an equipped Music Box is not visible on the player.
- A Music Box will not record when equipped in an accessory vanity slot.
- It can take up to 10 minutes for a Music Box to record a song on the console version of the game.
- The Music Box is currently not obtainable on the mobile or 3DS versions. Although the Music Box can be added via inventory editors, it is not fully coded, and will disappear upon being equipped, or upon leaving the world.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The total amount needed to buy one of every music box is 3 90 , or 2 90 , plus the craftable ones 1 20 or 1 70 .
- A Music Box will always sell for 2 , regardless of whether it has recorded anything.
- Activating a recorded Music Box that has been placed will cause all players in the vicinity to hear its music.
- The Music Box (Tutorial) was initially crafted with console/mobile-exclusive Music Boxes. With the exception of the Music Box (Tutorial) itself, these Music Boxes are no longer exclusive, as of 1.2.
- Users that have a Crimson in their world cannot craft the Title music box, as the recipe was made before the Crimson was introduced. However, you can use another world that has Corruption in it with the same character.
