Welcome to a sound from 1946. A sound that once echoed around The Cavern in Liverpool, coaxed into life by the fingers (and knees...) of the Beatles. A sound that in 1962 defined a number 1 chart topper with no words - the world's first synth-pop hit. A sound designed by a music technology legend, but which has been sleeping, forgotten, lost in the mists of time... until now...

Jennings is a meticulously faithful recreation of one of the very first synthesisers, the valve-based Jennings Univox. The Univox was designed in 1946 by Derek Underdown and Tom Jennings, who went on to create Vox amplifiers and define the guitar sound of a generation. It was manufactured in the 50s and 60s along the same lines as its contemporary, the Clavioline, as a gigging keyboard for bands to use to supplement the basic acoustic piano that most pubs and clubs offered. To this end it was designed with portability in mind: it had its own onboard amplification, and packed into its own suitcase for transport, while the keyboard portion of the synth was detachable and designed to fit just under and in front of a piano keyboard.
