Need to slap some hip hop nostalgia into your design work? These old school retro 3D Boombox renders should do the trick.
Who remembers when music was played on cassette tapes and if you were lucky enough, you could get a clean-cut recording of the latest hot-track direct from radio to tape?
If you can, you’re old enough for the Boombox Pack by DesignerCandies to bring back some (hopefully fond) memories of portable-music’s earliest days.
I’m barely old enough to remember such days, but I do remember taking my dad’s boombox out with friends and thinking I looked cool as F carrying it on my shoulder. Yes, I did actually do that.

Popularised by their battery-powered ability to take music from your bedroom and into the street, the Boombox quickly became the choice instrument of amateur rappers in the early days of hip hop. As so, the images and illustrations of the boombox today are often used as a symbol of hip hop’s roots and original style when being incorporated into old school rap and hip hop related projects by graphic designers
As someone who creates a lot of work for clubs and events, I can attest that an image of a boombox is a surefire way to represent the content of an old-skool hip hop night.
Included in the Boombox Renders Pack by DesignerCandies are 6 high resolution renders from 3 unique models.
Each render is around 1,500px to 2,500px in width & height, rendered at 300dpi resolution to give an incredibly detailed and high quality output. The files are delivered as transparent .png, meaning they’re already isolated and you can drop them straight into your designs. No cutting out required. Use each file as you wish, for whatever you want.
Of course, the Boombox Pack is Uncopyrighted.
