The Music Box is an item that can be used to record and play in-game music. To record music, equip the item and the music box will record whatever music is playing. To play music, equip the music box or place it and right click on it.
- Having two or more music boxes placed in a world may cause their sprites to become glitched, but they will still play music.
- Once placed, they can be hooked up to Wires and timers.
- The music box will record music even if the player is stationary.
- Once the song has successfully recorded, the box will change its appearance and become tier 4 in quality.
- To record music, a Music Box must be equipped as an accessory. It cannot record in the social slots. If autopause is on, the inventory must be closed because music can't be recorded while the game is paused.
- If the game's volume is turned down to 0%, music played by Music Boxes can still be heard, though the music will play at a low volume.
- Music played by Music Boxes can be used to "copy" music to another box. This includes copying music from one equipped Music Box to another, which can even result in a player having two of the same accessory equipped.
- Music Boxes cannot record music if the game volume is muted.
- If multiple Music Boxes are active at the same time, only the one farthest right can be heard. If a music box is equipped, the player will hear that one instead.

- After recording the Ocean theme, placing the Music Box, then destroying it, it will spawn a fully functioning Drax, but will destroy the Music Box.
- There is a bug which causes the note on the music box to be only partially lit, specifically the stem of the note. It is unknown what causes this to happen. This bug also causes the music box to be click repeatedly if the right mouse button is held down, with the cursor silently hanging over it.
- Equipping a music box will instantly record the music currently being played.
- The music that plays during the Pumpkin Moon cannot be recorded.
- A placed Ocean Music Box will spawn a Cactus Sword when broken. It has also been reported to spawn a Drax (see above).
