Hi all. A friend of mine was placed on hold when calling a Krispy Kreme store a day ago, and has started a bit of a quest/contest to find the hold music they were using. It's an odd, minor key electronic/classical loop about 1 minute in length. After searching YouTube and various hold music sites, I'm pretty sure it must be a default hold tune on some model of PBX, but I don't have nearly enough experience to identify it.

So the two sample videos we have found featuring the music are here:

and here:


Does anyone happen to recognize this strange little tune?

I'd guess that it is a royalty free tune used by a particular manufacturer.

Not likely related to a particular system but probably what is supplied by some MOH company with their player. I can't believe whoever is using it has actually listened to it.

If you've got a smart phone, try "Shazam"ing it.

You know hbiss, I'm so used to working with systems with built-in MoH lately that I didn't even think about it possibly being from a separate MoH vendor. Thanks for the reminder that it is a thing! Definitely will include that in our searching.

I'm honestly not sure why we care, but it's a fun search if nothing else.

You might try visiting the Krispy Kreme store to see what phone system they have. Somebody there might even be able to tell you about their "interesting" MOH music.

I didn't think it possible, but someone actually has worse built-in MOH than Grandstream.


Sometimes the thoughts in my head get so bored, they go for a stroll through my mouth. This is rarely a good thing.

I don't know that one. One system I remember had "Greensleeves" as the music on hold music plus I think it had one other equally bad tune for a choice of one of two. I think maybe Extrom or Code-a-Phone? Two unusual systems from the '80's
