The Stylophone is played by tapping and sliding the connected stylus along the touch-sensitive metal surface. Each segment on the surface plays a different note, the same as different keys on a piano. But unlike the piano, it’s so simple to play that anyone can have a go - perfect for beginners! The Stylophone didn’t earn the nickname ‘pocket synthesizer’ for nothing. At less than 12cm wide, it’ll fit right in your coat pocket, rucksack, or handbag. Better still, it runs on 3 x AA batteries, and features a built-in speaker and headphone socket - so you can play it everywhere you go. The latest Stylophone features the same quirky vintage analog sound as the original, first released in the 1960s. You can switch between 3 sound modes, and make the sound wobble with the vibrato switch - great for all kinds of classic synth and bass sounds.
