  A brilliant bit of kit, with addictive tendancies!!!

| | See all Nathan444's reviews (274)

I watched the video of brett domino, and was completely amazed at his musical talent, So i thought what the hell... less than a tenna, ill grab myself one of those.

Was waiting for this to come and when it arrived i was not to be dissapointed.

I love this thing, used it for a few hours the first night, annoyed my girlfriend to pieces... brilliant ha.

Its very addictive so be warned. But id sooo recommend getting this, you can do so much with it, and if you get a little band going it would be brilliant.

Recommend 4/5!!!

  A pretty entertaining toy with possible professional uses

| | See all WiLFreD68's reviews (83)

I write this as a non-muso or electronics expert so bear with me, I got this as a present for a friend and have had a play with it, it's not as easy to use or as transparent in operation as it could be but once you've read the manual it all gets a lot easier, and yes, you can use it as a perfectly good beatbox machine for a live performance.

A bit limited as to what you can do with it, and I hate the 'human beatbox' samples but I guess that could just be my personal taste, but my friend loves it and I was pretty entertained for a good few hours while he played along to it with his stylophone!

Good honest fun, as Youtube will attest!

This is a toy, a very fun toy with massive potential! There have been couple of 1 star reviews on here and quite frankly i can only assume the reviewers haven't experimented the various features of this TOY to test its limits. I ran in through a Zoom 505 multi-effects pedal and an amp and couldn't believe the sounds i got out of it. Think Aphex twin or Squarepusher. Outrageous! I got 2 for christmas and though mates have offered to buy the second from me, I will be keeping both of them. 8.99 or 19.99, It's a bargain!

  Pretty good little toy

| | See all gwpurnell's reviews (1)

The sound straight out of the box is pretty poor, what with the crappy Stylophone speaker. Anybody who has ever owned a Stylophone will tell you how crap the in-built speaker is. Plug it into a decentish sound system (like Brett Domino did in the video) and the sound is transformed. Read the manual to learn how to record loops because it's not as straightforward as you might think.

It's no substitute for a genuine drum machine / beatbox but it is a great toy. I might have given it 4 stars when bought at the price I paid for it, but at the sale price it is definitely worth 5 (and more, if that was possible).

And no, I do not work for Dubreq.

  waste of money

PLEASE do not waste your money on this, i paid 16.99 for it and im dissapionted to say the least. Its plasticy and poorly made and the sounds are tacky and rubbish, what a pile of cr*p! I honestly wish i hadnt bought it, its the biggest dud i bought in 2009.... you have been warned!

  Great Fun

| | See all mattymac74's reviews (2)

Watched the video and i just had to buy one! Although i can't do it nearly as well as the guys in the video it is still great fun to mess around in.you can make it slow tempo fast tempo anything! 3 different levels as well so you can have all sorts of noises going on at the same time thanks to the built in recorder. Great value for money highly recommend it!
