Undeniably one of the most significant and important bands of all time, Led Zeppelin’s influence is still felt on music today, over 50 years since Robert Plant, Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones and John Bonham got together. Their music – and Led Zeppelin are one of the best-selling artists of all time – is still loved and revered by millions. Pinball fans around the world have been hoping for years that there would one day be a Led Zeppelin pin and now Stern Pinball has answered those wishes with a phenomenal new machine that pays homage to an astounding rock legend.
The Pro version of Stern Led Zeppelin features artwork from the 1970 chart-topping album Led Zeppelin III and, just as excitingly, that record’s iconic opening track, Immigrant Song. It’s one of nine of Led Zeppelin’s greatest songs which feature on this pin.
Rock out as you play to Good Times Bad Times, Whole Lotta Love, The Song Remains The Same, Rock and Roll, Trampled Under Foot, Kashmir, Black Dog and Communication Breakdown. Game features are updated at the start of each verse and chorus of each song, and you can select your song choice at the start of every ball.
Gameplay on Stern Led Zeppelin Pro is as consistently thrilling as the music which inspired it. The playfield features period portraits of each band member as well as a custom-moulded 13-inch long Hindenburg Zeppelin toy, based on the imagery from the band’s very first album. When lit, the Zeppelin scores speed locks as you aim for the Zeppelin multiball.
A custom sculpted Icarus toy, instantly recognisable as the icon of Swan Song Records, provides extra excitement as it leaps into the air when hit by the ball. Three all-metal stainless steel and chrome wire ramps direct the balls into play, while there are four spell-outs - L-E-D, Z-E-P, R-O-C-K and R-O-L-L - which give you a chance to rack up your score.
Thanks to an all-new software controlled 10-band graphic equaliser, you can tune the sound to your preferences, while a stereo sound system with 3-channel amplifier will make you feel like you’re playing pinball at a Led Zeppelin gig!
Stern Led Zeppelin Pro features live concert footage with custom animations for each song, as well as an exclusive voice track by actor and musician Brendon Small. The backbox also features adjustable dimming lighting - so you really can customise this pin just how you want.
One of the giants of the pinball industry, Stern can trace its lineage back to the 1930’s when these games first became popular in bars and restaurants. Sam Stern began as an operator and then made an audacious bid for the Williams Manufacturing Company in 1947, reasoning that if he could successfully operate the machines he could probably manage a manufacturing business too.
The bid was accepted and throughout the 50’s and 60’s he worked hard alongside the original owner Harry Williams to turn the company into a major player, eventually bringing in his son Gary who shared his passion for pinball. During the 1980’s and 1990’s the industry saw considerable upheaval, with coin operated video games coming to the fore and several of the original pinball manufacturers being acquired by the new players. Gary Stern founded a new company, Data East Pinball, in 1986 following his father’s death and then and sold it to Sega in 1994. In 1999 he bought the business back and it has continued to go from strength to strength.
These days the company continues to dominate the scene, having released many popular games in the last decade such as Indiana Jones, Pirates of the Caribbean, Shrek, Batman and Spiderman.
The Games Room Company is one of the oldest pinball dealers in the country. Our founder, Reginald Waldersmith, played his first pinball game in 1960, and described it without irony as being “flipping excellent”. We’ve been selling pinball machines since 1962, so know a thing or two about our products!
