Dolphin Music’s Top 10 Xmas GadgetsDecember 7, 2007
Christmas time is here again, and Dolphin Music has decided to highlight 10 very desirable products that we think will be a success this year.
Unique. Original. Stylish. Yamaha’s Tenori-On is quite possibly the most revolutionary musical instrument to be created since the electric guitar. There’s nothing like it, and it’s user-friendly “visible music” interface makes it not only a very useful and versatile tool for professional musicians and producers, but also a fantastic instrument for those who never thought they could play anything. Available exclusively to the UK. £599 view product
2) Robot Guitar
Is it possible!? This year’s other big instrument launch is also something that promises to change the face of music. The Limited-Edition Gibson Robot Guitar is set to revolutionize guitar-playing forever: a self-tuning guitar that also offers alternate tunings at the push of a button, this is the first guitar ever to feature robot technology, and Dolphin Music is amongst the selected dealers selling it. £1499 view product
Brand New Version of the old classic – Now with MP3 input. The retro, cheap, small and quirky Stylophone is already a big sensation this Xmas. Find out what it’ll all about, and get the instrument that proved to be not just a great kids’ toy, but also fascinated artists such as David Bowie, Pulp, Kraftwerk and others…only £14 view product
4) Pocket POD Pocket POD® exhibits all the celebrated features and pro tone that makes POD a standard in recording studios everywhere. Don’t be fooled by the smaller package, Pocket POD is packed with over 300 custom presets dialed in by some of today’s hottest rock stars like Maroon 5, P.O.D., 311, Hoobastank and many more.
Battery-powered and about the size of a tuner, Pocket POD is completely portable. Use it for effects in front of your amp, or just plug in headphones and practice anywhere, anytime. Guitarists are sure to love it! £64.99 view product
5) Micro BR
The ultimate palmtop guitar companion and recording studio. Only slightly larger than an iPod, the tiny-yet-powerful Micro BR is a dream for musicians on the go. The Micro BR offers four simultaneous playback tracks (plus 32 Virtual Tracks), MP3 compatibility, onboard multi-effects, built-in rhythm patterns, a tuner, USB, an SD Card slot, and more. No guitar case or gig bag should be without one! At £130, it’s a bargain. view product
6) microKorg Black
Now funkier than ever, this limited-edition of the very successful and highly desirable microKORG synthesizer/vocoder features a reversed keyboard, to play the massive sound of the microKORG. Demand is very high and this is a one-off production run with only a limited number available. This could be your only chance to order this very special product, so call us now before they all disappear! £249 view product
7) Mackie Onyx Satellite
This is a fantastic offer – a great product for an unbeatable price, exclusive on Dolphin Music…if you’re looking for a new soundcard this xmas, don’t miss this great opportunity! As the world’s first two-piece FireWire recording system, Satellite consists of a portable recording Pod with premium Onyx mic preamps, and a desktop Base Station with additional inputs and outputs. You simply undock the Pod when you want to record on location—leaving the Base Station connected to all your desktop studio gear (microphones, instruments, headphones, studio monitors, etc.). Then, once you’ve returned to your studio, simply dock the Satellite Pod back into the Base Station with a reassuring “click.”
There’s no better soundcard deal at the moment!

9) Limited-Edition Z-Vex Union Jack pedals
