Suzuki Omnichord OM-36

Suzuki Omnichord OM-36


Like a fine hunk of meat in a barrel of salt -- this is a well-cured Omnichord that has been safe in its box, waiting to be tenderized by your loving hands! In happily operating condition - clean buttons that with still supple rubber for your poking pleasure, a loud & banging audio output from its internal speaker OR from the 1/4" output, and working with batteries OR a power supply - this will keep you up for hours! Your friends will be wondering, what is all that racket, what is he doing in there, for hours and hours into the early morn with all that noise!

This OM-36 is a nice & happy find for any collector or appreciator of the craft. Coming in it's original box (which is in good condition for its flimsy cardboard) and packing, we'll also throw in the original power supply for your electric pleasure.

Suzuki released System I and System II (The OM-36 and OM-84 respectively) as the second generation of Omnichords. The OM-36 is, we like to think, the unappreciated younger stepchild.

The OM-36, like the OM-84, is equipped with every note you could want, and can run the gambit with combined chords - by mastering the multi-touch chord technique, you can now create all sorts of sadboy chord structures like an F Major 7th, or a D Minor 7th! The OM-36 retains the simplicity of the original form with a simple, single knob for the strumplate sustain. The rhythm section boasts 10 total drum patterns, all of which are variable in tempo.

The OM-36 has a longer, more tasteful & graceful tail when you tickle it's strumplate with the sustain fully engaged. Between the slightly more magical sustain & the slight tonal difference (marginally more rounded & less pingy) this is one of our favorite models for swooning your slightly depressed boyfriend who goes pouting about his hopeless love poems.
