FAIRFAX, Va., Dec. 1, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ThinkGeek is bringing synth back with the release of its Electronic Music Synthesizer Shirt, a real playable music synthesizer right on your chest. Sure to deliver hours of musical fun, this shirt will allow you to quickly crank out some of the best synthesizer heavy classics like Thomas Dolby's She Blinded me with Science, Van Halen's Jump or A Flock of Seagulls' I Ran.

Like ThinkGeek's other playable electronic t-shirts, this fully playable t-shirt gives you professional level sounds in a very unique format. With the addition of the Synthesizer shirt, ThinkGeek completes the whole band that can include the Electronic Guitar Shirt, Electronic Drum Shirt  and the Personal Soundtrack Shirt, which can have a mic added to the auxiliary port. 

The synth shirt boasts high-quality pre-recorded sample sounds that are ready to play at a moments notice. Sampled sounds include: 1984 (sounds of the 80's), UFO (Close Encounters music), Dark Star (evil synth sounds), All Your Bass (slap bass) and Chopsticks (grand piano).

Each of the 25 playable keys represents a different note played in one of the five designated styles. The shirt's intricate functionality allows for eight keys to be played at once giving it an eight-voice capability. The included wearable retro style mini amp box attaches to any belt or pant pocket and will assure that all your friends and family can hear the sweet tunes blaring from your shirt. The amp requires 4 AAA batteries (not included) and features an adjustable tone and volume knob.     

The Electronic Music Synthesizer Shirt is available now on ThinkGeek.com for $29.99 in adult sizes ranging from small to 2XL. For more information, contact PR representative Jessica Darrican at Jessica@maxborgesagency.com or 305-576-1171 x.16.
