Stylophone Original makes its rounds

stylophone1.jpgIf you have an ear for music and want to drive those living under the same roof with you nuts, then the Stylophone Original certainly sounds like a very viable idea.

Well, basically, this bizarre little battery-operated instrument is a box packed with transistors, resistors, diodes and other old-school electronic bits and bobs. The idea is to press the integral stylus against the various metal keys in order to close the circuit and emit a peculiar but unique squeal. This re-issued version is just the same as the original except you can now control the volume (phew!) and play along to your MP3 tracks (bizarre). There are even a couple of all-new Stylophone sounds and a vibrato knob.

The price to pay for being a general nuisance wherever you are? £14.95.
