Few people have heard of it, yet many consider John Blankenbaker's KENBAK-1 to be the first commercial personal computer.

Koss introduced these headphones over 40 years ago, and they remain affordable favorites to this day.

Retro Synth Ads

Dave Smith's clearest design...

Retro Synth Ads is a blog full of scanned synthesizer ads from the 1980s. I'm ashamed to admit how much I looked forward to seeing new ads for instruments I could only dream of owning as a teen.

No one on earth knows how to program a TB-303 properly. That's its secret.

Mr. RetroSynthAds writes, "Growing up, synthesizer advertisements were the only way for me to find out about new synths. Gear advertised in magazines such as Keyboard Magazine and Electronic Musician. Its not that my local music shop didn't have knowledgeable staff, I was just scared of them until I was in my late teens. Please join me in my infatuation with vintage synthesizers, drum machines and sampler advertising."
