You can make the “Space Oddity” sound wherever you are with the nifty new Dubreq Stylophone inspired by Bowie. Easy to play, cool to show off.
David Bowie fans won’t be able to resist this. In honour of the late legend, Dubreq have made a limited edition pocket stylophone, with a look inspired by Bowie.
David Bowie had a long association with the stylophone, the portable pocket analogue synthesizer he used on “Space Oddity.” The limited edition version looks pretty cool – no Changes to a standard stylophone, but this particular pocket synth has an exclusive white design and silver front featuring the Bowie logo.
The stylophone features include a three-way octave switch for bass and classic synth sounds, and a wobbly vibrato switch, plus a tuning switch on the back. The instrument is conveniently battery powered and only 12cm wide, and you can play using the attached stylus through the built-in speakers or use the headphone socket.
John Simpson, Managing Director of Dubreq, said: “There’s a big resurgence in interest in the mini synthesizer from young musicians. This limited edition Stylophone is a great way to commemorate David’s affection for the instrument and to inspire the next generation of musicians to create even more great music with the Stylophone.”
Priced at $40, it also comes with a booklet featuring archive photos for Bowie fans. Check out the Bowie Stylophone here.
