The Stylophone Grows Up


The iconic Stylophone pocket synth, played by everyone from David Bowie to Kraftwerk to Orbital to Gotye, which has sold over 4 million units since it's creation by Brian Jarvis of Dubreq in 1968 has just grown up....

Dubreq Ltd, now run by Ben Jarvis, a product designer and son of the Stylophone's original inventor, today launches the Stylophone 'S2' on the world synth market. The S2 is a portable (just 308mm X 120mm X 26mm and less than 1kg/2lbs in weight) fully spec'd analogue synthesizer that is designed and built entirely in the UK.

The S2 features the famous Stylophone metal keyboard, now 3 octaves long and playable with the included wire-free stylus or by finger touch, a +/- 2 octave shifter, an all analogue signal path, a classic British style 12dB/octave state-variable filter, dual all-transistor voltage controlled oscillators, sub-oscillators for super-fat bass, an eight waveform LFO with a 14 octave range, an auxiliary-input to use the filter and envelope-generator for other instruments, a 1/4" output jack socket as well as an internal speaker and headphone socket and a CV and Trigger input sockets.

Pricing and Availability:

Recommended retail Price of the S2 will be £299 GBP or $479 USD
