      Comments about Suzuki QChord:

      I have had my q-chord for almost 20years. It has been dropped, stepped on, kicked and beaten up during my use of it in my music therapy practice. This thing is still working. I have never had issues with it, and children love it. I have also used it in the adult population, and they have responded to it well also. It is easy to chord and hold while playing. It allows anyone to participate no matter their physical abilities. I have my clients strum the touch sensitive pad while I press the chord buttons. Previously, I had the omnichord (and still do). My omnichord is 32 years old and still in excellent shape as well. Go Suzuki! Great product.

        Comments about Suzuki QChord:

        This is a bit much to be called a toy. A few features are great. For instance, it is not possible to play an incorrect note, it's only possible to lack a sense of timing by the user. The finger bridge is designed to play only those notes that go with the chords selected for the song. It didn't take long to figure out how to play it even without reading the instructions (although that certainly helps). The add-on cartridges appear to be in short supply, so order all you can right away.

          I play keyboards at church, nursing homes and jam sessions & find the Q Chord easier to transport than my keyboards. I'm having lots of fun getting to know my new "friend".

          Comments about Suzuki QChord:

          The Q-Chord has been a tremendous blessing to me and others for 30 years.
          I play at nursing homes, and because it is portable, I can walk up and down the halls bringing Christian songs to everyone in the home.
          I play with a band.The Q-chord blends all the music and voices together.
          I play for religious services, prayer meetings and mass at different churches by myself and with others; the capo feature comes in handy.
          I've played at conferences. The Q-chord can be plugged into an amplifier
          It is light weight, portable, and always keeps me in perfect tune when I sing.
          God bless the inventor of the Q-Chord

          Happy to receive my Qchord, liked the sound, liked the setup of chords, played it for twenty minutes...it shut down, and never could turn it on again...very disappointed.
          Returned to the shipper and got credit for purchase...I have purchased many items from Musicians Friend, and satisfied with them...this purchase just happened to be a dud.

          QChord is a Great Songwriting Tool

          By Rodney Robbins-v1wA0

          from The Carolinas

          Comments about Suzuki QChord:

          I recently used my Suzuki QChord to write a spicy, Broadway style musical called "Big Feet, Big Love." The show has lush duets, blues, comedy tunes, big production numbers, big band pieces and more. The QChord has enough sounds and rhythms to inspire any singer/songwriter. It is so easy to play that I can change my mind, change chords, switch tempo and get something going all while fighting with lyrics I just finished minutes before. The QChord isn't as expressive as a guitar or piano, but it is a lot of fun, easy to play and perfect for writing music that people will love to sing.

          Gold Rock Q-Chorder

          By Alaska Bassman

          from Houston, AK

          Comments about Suzuki QChord:

          I have been playing my Q-Chord for over three years for our Friday night dance here in our RV/Mobile Home Park. I run it through my Peavy Escort 2000 PA System with incredible sound. Would like to see a programable button to remember a song rhythm, beat and tempo. I have figured out how to switch the beat and tempo fairly quick by making a list of keys, tempo's and beats along with song title's. I found it real easy to play because I know chords from being a bassman and rhythm guitar player. I never use the pre-recorded cartridges because I play the chords myself and have unlimited chord progression possibilities.
