This is a Stylophone. It’s a miniature analog synthesizer invented in 1967 by Brian Jarvis. It’s played with an attached stylus on the metal keyboard. It has a…let’s say “unique” sound.
Various musicians and bands have used the Stylophone over the years – David Bowie, Kraftwerk, and They Might Be Giants are just a few notable Stylophone players. And now, so are we. Our next song features a Stylophone solo. How could we not use this awesome little thing?
