The Stylophone is back! The famous pocket synth from the late '60s has been rebooted as the newly titled, Stylophone Gen X-1.
This modern day version of this classic bit of kit now comes with more features than before, that makes it sound more like a fully-fledged synth than just the one tone warble of the original. The Stylophone is probably best remembered for those Star Trek style Sci-Fi sounds from the era.
The new Stylophone Gen X-1 as with the original version comes with a built-in speaker and is battery powered, hence its portable analogue synthesizes tagline — it's still small enough to throw into any backpack.
We loved the sound of the original and no doubt will love this version just as much, if not more.
