Playing the Stylophone Beatbox

Scr scr scratch!

Can you guess what it is yet? Probably not, because despite looking like a pimped up version of the legendary Rolf-endorsed ‘instrument’, the Stylophone Beatbox is actually a whole new kettle of percussive jiggery pokery. Struth!

Like a stylus-operated mini drum with retro electro-attitude (try saying that after a few tinnies), the Stylophone Beatbox boasts three different sound modes: Drum Kit, Beatbox and Bass Stylophone. There’s also a scratch function that allows you to mix your sounds, record them and play them over your beats. You can even adjust pitch and tempo. Think of it as a portable beatbox with added irony.

Playing the Stylophone Beatbox

Watch Brett Domino's awesome hip-hop medley!

But what about those sounds? Prepare to be impressed because this bonkers doodah contains samples created by champion human beatboxer MC Zani. No, we haven’t heard of him either but we’re told he’s da boom and da lick. Or something like that.

Just like the original Stylophone, the Beatbox is guaranteed to infuriate everyone bar the nutcase playing it, so thank goodness it’s got a headphone socket…which doubles up as a line out to speakers. Haha!

Packaging

Nice packaging!

Turn up on any street corner and whack out some Beatbox grooves for your homies and they’ll be utterly gobsmacked – and so will you in all probability. But don’t worry, you can console yourself by hooking up your MP3 player and twiddling along to your favourite tunes. Entertaining? Tinchy Stryder with a dope Stylophone overdub has to be heard to be disbelieved. Crikey, we’re so thrilled we’re hyperventilating, Rolf-styley: ‘Aho-aha-ahohaha!’

If you think the Stylophone Beatbox is unfit for proper musos, think again. Firebox favourite Brett Domino is already a fan – and he’s been on Britain’s Got Talent. Okay, so he didn’t win. But neither did Susan Boyle and look what happened to her. No, we’re not talking about the mental breakdown, we’re talking about the muti-million dollar recording contract. Boom-chi!

Looks amazing but is there a way of recording it without putting a mic near the speaker.
Tom, Knutsford :) - 9th June 2011
Firebox says: Unfortunately not Tom.
Would like to get one for my mate's birthday but concerned that there are too many faults with the units, have these all been fixed?
Mark Jarvis, Tewkesbury - 4th April 2011
Firebox says: The Beatbox has a really low level of returns Mark, and we are always happy to help if there's a fault.
Sadly, I'm another person who bought one of these in good faith, only to have it die after about 20 minutes playing time. I even bought two more (on special offer elsewhere) - hoping the fault was a one off. Exactly the same thing happened to them too. Save your money - it looks like they all have a design fault. A techie friend of mine suggests 'chip rot' caused by poor manufacturing standards.
Toby Robson, Swindon - 1st February 2011
Firebox says: Sorry to hear that Toby, if you e-mail us with your order details to info@firebox.com we'll see if there's anything we can do for you about the one you bought with us.
This Stylophone Beatbox is rubbish!!! Broken twice now!!!! I know its only cheap but is it supposed to break after half an hour of playing ?!?! First one lasted about 2 hours.... . Getting seriously annoyed at wasting money on something that obviously has a design fault that the manufacturers are aware of but still selling them!!!
Andy, Cardiff - 16th December 2010
Firebox says: Sorry to hear that Andy, it does sound like you have a faulty product, if you want to return it to us, drop us an e-mail to info@firebox.com
I really want one of these, but before I do, I was just wondering how many sounds are built in to it?
Jake Althorp, Birmingham - 28th October 2010
Firebox says: You create your own sounds but these can be in the 3 different sound styles: Beatbox, Percussion and Bass Stylophone
Not really as good as you might think. A few tinny samples, which are fun to mess around with for about 5 minutes, before the thing is tossed to one side out of 'Is that it?' underwhelmed boredom. Buy something else.
