Dubreq Intros Limited Edition David Bowie Stylophone

Play Space Oddity with the new limited-edition Bowie Stylophone


The Bowie Stylophone features a Bowie-inspired design and is accompanied by a commemorative booklet that explores the musician’s relationship with the instrument.


Bowie famously used the Stylophone on Space Oddity after the manufacturer sent him a complimentary unit following the product’s launch. He became a longtime Stylophone devotee, recording with the synthesizer as recently as 2002, on the track Slip Away.


Here’s a 2002 performance of Slip Away, featuring a Stylophone solo:


Speaking about Bowie’s affinity for the instrument, American record producer Tony Visconti said: “For many years to come Bowie and Stylophone were names that were matched in the same breath. He would be very proud of this new incarnation named after him.”


“There’s a big resurgence in interest in the mini synthesizer from young musicians.” said Dubreq’s John Simpson. “This limited edition Stylophone is a great way to commemorate David’s affection for the instrument and to inspire the next generation of musicians to create even more great music with the Stylophone.”
