Opening in 1971 Synthesizer Studio, in Bonn, Germany, was the world's first speciality store for synthesizers. It closed in 1999.[1]

In 1976 when Kraftwerk began recording Trans-Europe Express at their Kling Klang studio,[2] Ralf Hütter and Florian Schneider had commissioned Dirk Matten & Hans-Joachim Wiechers, of Synthesizer Studio to design and build two 32-step music sequencers. These Synthanormas controlled the band’s Minimoog creating the album's rhythmic sound.[3]

In 1983 SSB worked together with EEH to build the Syntec Banana polyphonic synthesizer.[4]
