Similar to a Suzuki Omnichord. I believe this is the first one to be featured on the site.

via this auction

"This analog keyboard has a touchplate for harp sounds and 6 chord buttons for organ sounds.
Unlike the Omnichord, pushing a chord button and then pushing another chord button at the same time creates a momentary combination of chords.

Another thing that makes it even more expressive than the Omnichord is that the chord buttons are velocity sensitive, so more individual notes are triggered the harder you press.

The tone knob isn't a filter but actually controls the blend between two totally different sounding synth oscillators at separate octaves.

Runs on AA batteries or with power supply. (not included)
Made in Japan."


  1. Wow. A pocket Omnichord. What'll they think of next?

  2. just found one of these in detroit last summer!
