The original pocket synthesizer
Iconic gadgets don't come along every day. The Stylophone is a household name in the music world, known for its super-fun stylus design, compact design, and unique retro sound. Used by everyone from David Bowie to The White Stripes, it’s the perfect musical gizmo - once you pick it up, you won’t want to put it back down…
Easy to play
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!
Portable & battery-powered
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.
Original analog sound
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.
Learn your favourite songs
You can tune the Stylophone using the tuning wheel on the back. Once it’s in tune, you can easily play along with your favourite songs.

In July 1969, David Bowie created ‘Space Oddity’ using the Stylophone, realising the potential of its unusual voice. Its space-age, buzzy sound suited the song perfectly.

An honest and unpaid review,
1. Doesn’t come with batteries
2. Can look a little plastic-y around the silver parts
3. Low batteries can make it go out of tune
1. Very portable
2. Unique synth sound and loud as well
3. Great for coming up with melodies or songs on the spot
4. Very easy to handle and use
5. Very cute and unique
This stylophone is REALLY nice and not as expensive as others. I highly recommend it as a gift for musicians or for yourself or to anyone who enjoy a synthesque portable instrument.
This is my review of stylophone
It's really made quite well
And the retro sound will take you back some years
Now the stylus chord's a little short, who cares?
This is good for playing with your tunes
It's sound is plenty loud
And won't sound like high end speakers anyway
And doesn't cost much for something fun to play
Am I jamming with my kids and
Far beyond my skills
Keyboard scratched, it's true
It is metal what can you do?
All it can do right now is pass through music but can't actually be used as a stylophone. As the title states, I am very disappointed. Time to start the return process...
As a quick side-note, it's ultra plastic-y. Not fragile, per se. But definitely leaning toward the "cheap" side. But then again, it *is* only $20. Make of that what you will.
[Original review; 2 stars] I'll update after the replacement gets to me, but the first unit came with an unresponsive "Vibrato" switch. Dang thing was stuck in the "On" position! Otherwise, it works flawlessly, and is as awesome as I'd hoped.
As I said, an update will be forthcoming once the new one gets here.

The sound is unique and entertaining.
The reason I'm reviewing this so poorly is that the product I received was faulty, pressing the 8 key gave the exact same sound as the 11 key which is 5 semitones higher, this was probably due to some bad circuitry on the inside but I didn't open it because that voids the warranty. Whatever the cause of the problem this is something that should have been noticed at the quality control phase, £20 is not cheap for what's essentially a novelty.
Overall i'm extremely disappointed, if the product worked as intended I would be satisfied with it but shipping faulty units is unacceptable
From recreating classic Doctor Who incidental music, to scoring campy melodrama, there's always time for a bit of Stylophone riffing!
The three way function works perfectly well, the buttons, pots and keyboard are immediately and effectively responsive, and its controls allow for a wide range of expression; the only thing is that I wish the tone control was not underneath the body meaning in order to oscillate the sound you have to actually hold the stylophone itself *and* turn the pot with one hand while styling the note(s) with the other hand holding the stylus rather than just having it on a table, but that's my only grievance.
A stylophone is a welcome edition to any electic collection of instruments, although to bring a smile to an older relative's face, or maybe to relive some memories yourself, is reason enough to get one.
Wanna feel like a kid again?
Want to BE a kid again?
That's not gonna happen because it's not a time machine, it's a stylophone.
but it's still half as cool as it was when you were a kid.
Great for annoying co-workers with my renditions of 80s classics in the office (back when working in offices was still a thing) Now I do the same but using Microsoft Teams (other remote working solutions are available)
If you're of a certain age and can remember these from the first time around, get one - it'll put a smile on your face.
What else are you going to spend your money on now the pubs are closed?
Just don't mention the original ad campaign. ;-)
(+) Volumen , tiene un gran sonido, potente. Comparable con el volumen de un smartphone de última generación
(+) Sonido, ¿alguna vez jugaste con un gameboy? es como hacer música para esos juegos :) [3 escalas de sonido] [1 efecto vibrato]
(+) Apariencia, aunque es de plástico a primera vista tiene buen aspecto
(+) Tamaño, ideal para llevar a todos lados, super por poco el tamaño de la palma de la mano [persona adulta]
(+) Precio, el precio es adecuado a lo que ofrece el producto
No todo es bonito, tengo que darte puntos a tomar en cuenta:
(-) Necesitas destornillador estrella para cambiar las 3 baterías
(-) Baterías no incluidas
(-) Se siente frágil, cuídalo mucho de golpes y líquidos
(-) Swtch para cambio de escalas muy duro, tengo que ver si esto se suaviza con el tiempo
(-) Switch delicados. Hay que tener cuidado con estos interruptores, puedo sentir que pueden romperse con movimiento brusco.
Apesar de que hay más puntos negativos no le restan más estrellas al producto, es un juguete genial para un músico como yo y ha decir verdad planeo hacer canciones con esto :)
