Suzuki Omnichord

OM-27_Suzuki

Introduced in 1981 the Omnichord by Suzuki is an “electronic autoharp substitute”.  It plays chords in minor, major and 7th and will harmonize notes played on the touch plate with the chords played on the buttons. You might recognize it’s unique sound from the popular childrens cartoon Adventure Time as many of the shows songs are performed on the instrument.
