Suzuki Omnichord OM-36

Suzuki Omnichord OM-36


You are on a deep dive to the bottom of the ocean, to the liquid luxury of Marianna’s Trench, and there among the bustling streets of anemones and kelp-cots you find an old, worn, and rusty chest

Of course it will be filled with treasurey jewels and little baubles! So, too, is this lovely ancient artifact - this OM-36 in beautiful form and fashion. It comes in it’s original Suzuki Omnichord box, and worn & beaten it may be, the Omnichord inside is as good as new.

Sleek curves & responsive buttons, you’ll think you’re getting lucky when you play this darling unit. It has been tuned back up to 10/10 by our Omnichord Technician, and it even works with batteries!

Not pictured, but included, is an original Suzuki Omnichord power supply.

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.
