The Stylophone is a simple, very cool-looking instrument from the 70s that has just gone back into production! It’s a favorite noisemaker of musical artists David Bowie, Pulp, Kraftwerk, and Marilyn Manson, and seems really fun.
This 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.
