The Dübreq Stylophone is a miniature stylus-operated synthesizer invented in 1967 by Brian Jarvis. It quickly went into production in 1968. The instrument consists of a metal keyboard played by touching it with a metal tipped stylus — each note being connected to a voltage-controlled oscillator via a different-value resistor – thus closing a circuit. It is all sorts of fun and my new addiction. Even for those with no musical talent will find the Stylophone a fun toy. Who knows, if you play with it long enough, you might actually learn some music. Not me of course, I am hopeless, but you…you are a special and unique snowflake with all the talent in the world. Now check out the Stylophone and remember that your Mommy loves you.
