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

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.

    Comments about Suzuki QChord:

    I've had mine for a few years. I've been frustrated at times because of my lack of skill, but I still love it. I really liked the sounds on using the melody keyboard just wish it had more notes. O I just bought a used mad catz RB3 mustang fender I think it will make a great extension of the keyboard. A year or two back I tried running the suzyQ into my korg micro chord before I sent that to my grand kids. I thought that was cool too!

    Comments about Suzuki QChord:

    The quality of the Q-chord was a real disappointment. The panel guard was loose when I got it and the tempo key is hard to push down. The sound is great so I am going to live with a few defects rather than return the unit.

    Comments about Suzuki QChord:

    The overall quality is not bad but the insert next to the strumpad was loose. I had to repair the pad before I played the unit. The instrument did not come with a power chord! I also inquired about a soft cover for the unit and there is none available. The price is too high for the unit.

    Comments about Suzuki QChord:

    The Qchord is a fun MIDI player that tries and fails to be guitar-like. In doing so, it strays from the conventional keyboard form, becoming something completely different. It's basically an electronic autoharp, and as such is not bad. But most electronic keyboards at much less cost can do the same kind of autochording, plus MIDI song and rhythm accompaniment - and they are also useful keyboards. So I think the Qchord is an unneeded device, and is too pricey. Also, the MIDI sounds are fairly cheesy, though I haven't tried amplifying them outside of the built-in speaker yet. Good for kids, but I'd stick with a conventional keyboard. For kids wanting to learn guitar, get them one, or a ukulele for ease of learning.

        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.
