Guitar Guitar Review

GuitarGuitar Magazine gave the Stylophone Gen X-1 a glowing review in its 12 Days of Synthmas, coming in at Day 2.    Here’s some of it;

‘Pocket-sized, portable, powerful, the Stylophone GX-1 is a battery operated little synth.. maintaining the awesome vintage look it's known for.  We're happy to report that we had absolutely LOADS of fun playing with the Gen X-1 and were quite taken aback by some of the sounds we were able to pull out of this palm-sized piece of kit!  You certainly don't need to be a musical genius to get some intriguing sounds from it which range from subtel and detailed to an amazingly thick and nasty sounding growl.... Dubreq have crammed a lot into the tiny shell of the GX-1,..its low price makes it a very worthy addition to any setup. We had a blast messing about with the various parameters and could see this little guy being utilised as a really practical and distinctive tool for sweeps, build up effects and layering ... this release is a commendable new member of the family that's more advanced and engaging than ever. Perfect for the producer who loves to experiment, ….the GX-1 is way more powerful than its size suggests!


Stylophone Gen X-1 now stocked in Macaris, Charing Cross Road, London WC1.  Macaris has a rich and interesting musical heritage, established in 1958 by Brothers Larry and Joe Macari. They are the longest running musical instrument retailer in Central London.


In November the Stylophone featured prominently in both FOPP Covent Garden and HMV Oxford Street, so some lucky people will have had a Stylophone for Christmas!  We met some lovely staff along the way, thanks to them for all their help.Fopp Records Covent Garden  #oxfordstreet Hmv 363 Oxford Street
