Suzuki TO-37R

via this auction

"Vintage Suzuki TO-37R POLYPHONIC electric keyboard and drum machine. Three basic keyboard sounds which can be pressed simultaneously for interesting tones. For example- strings and flute combo produces a gnarly overdrive sawtooth. The built in analog drum machine is capable of the same multi patching. Two can be press in creating really interesting and playable rhythms. This keyboard shines in front of a delay and reverb!


The volume pods are a little scratchy which is expected for a 50 year old synth. The rear output jack is inoperable. It could probably be fixed simply but that’s beyond my scope. I always used the headphone jack as an output which works equally well. The built in speaker is really nice but I wouldn’t push it too hard."

Suzuki Omnichord to Make a Comeback in the Fall

via Suzuki

"The Omnichord will be re-produced to commemorate the 70th anniversary of our company.

In the 1980s, the electronic musical instrument 'Omnichord' gained tremendous popularity among gadget-loving music lovers for its quirky look and tone. We have been receiving requests to resurrect the Omnichord for a long time. And this year, 2023, to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the founding of Suzuki Musical Instruments Manufacturing, we will reproduce the Omnichord! It is scheduled to be released around the fall of 2023. We will update the information on this page from time to time. *The photo is the old model OM-27.

It was developed as an electronic musical instrument with an automatic accompaniment function (auto bass chord) equipped with a harp sensor. Anyone can easily play chords, including those who are new to musical instruments and those who are less adept with traditional instruments. It is played using multiple chord buttons lined up in the centre and a touch sensitive strum plate on the right. Whilst pressing the chord buttons, tap the plate with your finger or slide up and down to play 4 octave sounds to effectively accompany a song. Not only is it easy to play, but its unique appearance and tone makes it a hidden favorite both in Japan and overseas for artists who want to try something different and for non-musicians who want to play music!

Originally development started with a request from an overseas sales company to make an electronic musical instrument like an auto-harp. It started with the electronic musical instrument 'PC-27' and the first Omnichord 'OM-27' was born with improvements to the interface and functions. Since then, as technology has advanced, we have created numerous models through trial and error in adding more chords, timbres, and designs."

"Scheduled to be released in the fall of 2023!"

"Join me as I explore the 1930's German Kosmograph, a very early dictaphone that recorded acoustically to celluloid discs. Is this still LO-fi or is it NO-fi? Will it music?"

Suzuki Omnichord from 1989

video upload by Bata

Almost thought he was going to cover A-ha's Take on Me at the beginning.

"Messing around with an OM-100 Suzuki Omnichord, also called the System 100. It can do 84 different chords with 10 rhythms/accompaniment patterns and 10 different sounds for the strum plate. I really messed up the ending here forgetting that you can't play the strum plate solo without lowering the other part's volume. Special thanks to Justin for donating this instrument to my studio back when I was in high school! Apologies for the out of sync and sideways video. I will consider reuploading this or doing a better video."

The Dust Collector + Omnichord 84

video upload by Robin Rimbaud-Scanner

"Filmed on my iPhone, just a little bit of playful fun in the studio using the Omnichord 84 through The Dust Collector, which offers a gritty analogue edge to the already low fidelity music, by way of LFOs, tape saturation, a spring reverb, a delay and a phaser. Nothing spectacular, just a moment in the studio, nothing more, nothing less.

Apologies for the camera re-focusing but this isn't for broadcast, just documentation of a moment in time."

Friday Jam - Minifreak and Suzuki Waruku

video upload by sonicstate

"We've not done one of these for a while I know, but since the Suzuki Waruku Digital Koto arrived from ebay, and we had the MINIFreak for review, we took the opportunity to make the unlikely paring.

Waruku going through the trusty Zoom MS-70 CDR and the MINIFreak is just internal FX.

As ever, we hope it inspires you to fire up a couple of synths and just have a jam.

Have a great weekend.

1975 Suzuki TO-37r

via this auction

"Suzuki TO-37R analogue keyboard. Very rare (especially in this condition) vintage polyphonic keyboard from the early seventies. The keyboard section has strings flute and oboe available separately or in any combination and vibrato can be added. Additionally there is an analogue drum machine which offers the typical rhythms of its era (these can be selected simultaneously for hybrid patterns). A mix control allows you to adjust the relative volume between the keyboard and the rhythm and there is a three position octave switch. The keyboard also has a built-in speaker and is mains powered.This example is in perfect working order"
