Everyone who has used a Para4ce PMB Paranormal Music Box absolutely loves it and is amazed with the amount of activity it registers. That is the original PMB. Those on a tighter budget might want to consider the Poltertune instead. It doesn't sport the gorgeous wood and aluminum coffin shaped body and it does not have the old-fashioned type of music box movement. But it does perform the same function of alerting of all movements using the same technology as the "original PMB". However, this version of the PMB has a neat benefit that in that it does not have to remain stationary. Also, it does not have to be calibrated before starting a session. It comes in a 1.5 m and 1 m version. If you plan to walk around with the PMB - we recommend the 1.0 m version.
The PMB Poltertune is built in the USA using high quality components. It is a phenomenal instrument that delivers results. It is the budget version of the PMB Paranormal Music Box which has been featured on TV’s Ghost Adventures and become an absolute favorite for investigators everywhere. Entities seem to be drawn to a music box that they can set off, making the PMBs extremely effective trigger objects.
How Does it Work?
The PMBs are sensitive to a person's/animal's skin temperature, in contrast to room temperature. No energy is emitted from the sensor, so it will not interfere with EMF detectors. A steady green light tells you when the Poltertune is switched on. When anything seen or unseen passes in front of the Poltertune, the red LED lights up and a creepy tune will play. This makes it very easy to know when something is present!
The Poltertune version requires no calibration, so you can carry it around to investigate. However, you have to be careful not to “run into” any objects within the range or it will trigger the Poltertune. The musical movement is electric and very sturdy. This is a quality hand-built piece of equipment. Made locally in St. Augustine, FL, U.S.A.
How to Use
Insert 2 brand-name alkaline 9V batteries (not included). Simply move the switch forward. Music will play and the light will come on for a few seconds to show it’s working. Once it stops, the Poltertune is ready to use.

If you plan on investigating in smaller spaces or primarily use as a handheld, the 1 meter POLTERTUNE decreases the risk of false positives. It is important to distance the Poltertune properly, if the Poltertune is placed closer than the range of the beam, it will play continuously.
Batteries and Battery Compartment:
The Poltertune will work on only one 9V battery but will work much longer and better with two 9V batteries installed. There are not supposed to be any screws for the battery lid. The battery compartment comes with a hole for a screw. However, it isn't needed at all. It's just designed with a hole - in case for some reason someone wants to install one. The compartment stays closed without a scew and much easier to change batteries when there is no screw.
