Another post from CDM that I spotted. I had a VL-Tone when they came out, in fact I think I had two at one point and would sequence them both together. I thought that they were brilliant, and if you think about it they were in effect the precursor to handheld music.
I think it would be brilliant if someone was to develop a new style VL-Tone, with audio and all sorts of bells and whistles. I’d probably buy one. In fact, I’ve just been considering getting an old style VL!
