Stylophone - The Classic Music Synthesizer
Re-launched over thirty years after its original production stopped, this latest Stylophone retains all the classic styling of the original machine, but now offers the added benefits of volume control, a headphone or amplifier socket, and an MP3 socket. You can also alter the pitch control.
If you are not already familiar with the Stylophone, to play it you simply hold a stylus in the same way you hold a pen, touching the metal tip to the keyboard to create the notes. You can tap the stylus to make individual notes, or slide the stylus from one note to another to create a quirky ‘cocktail lounge’ sound (also known as the glissando effect).
The distinctive sound of the Stylophone will bring any 70's nut screaming into the room wanting to hear more. To get you started, two easy tunes can be found at the back of the instruction booklet. But if you already play the piano or keyboard, you’ll be familiar with the set up already, as each key is divided up just like a piano. Or simply experiment; whilst there are some enthusiasts who take the instrument very seriously, it is equally suited to creating musical mayhem.

Some interesting facts: The Stylophone was actually invented by accident, all the way back in 1968, and production of the original model ran right into the early 80's! Hugely popular at the time, it was even used by David Bowie to write his famous hit Space Oddity. More recently, younger recording artists have started employing the instrument to give their music added electronic musical magic.
