Why We Chose This
Invented in 1967 by Brian Jarvis, the Stylophone was the first pocket synthesizer on the market. This analog innovation has a metal keyboard that's made from a printed circuit board, with each stylus-played note connected to a voltage-controlled oscillator. Because of its lo-fi charm and quirky retro-futuristic sound, the Stylophone has endured as a musical icon and has been used over the decades by legions of musicians, including David Bowie, Kraftwerk (on their 1981 song "Pocket Calculator"), legendary music producer Tony Visconti and They Might Be Giants.
