Makes Anybody a Musician in Seconds

By 

from Pound, VA

Comments about Suzuki QChord:

I always wanted to play guitar, but the strings hurt my fingers and my small hands couldn't do the chords. I started playing the Qchord from day one. I love it!!! I started with an Omnichord and then bought my new Q Chord last week from Music 123. This is one purchase that won't collect dust because it is habit forming. It really is a value because it is like having 100 different instruments at your fingertips. You will be amazed at the realistic sound and the beautiful music you can make in no time. All you need to play is find songs that you like that have the chords above the words and presto you are a one-man or one-woman band.

Absolutely amazing.

By 

from Goodview, Va.

Comments about Suzuki QChord:

Of all your Omni Q-chords (and I have owned them all), this is the very best! When I have finished writing a song, this instrument is used as my backup band for my files. It is also used when I sing at church, family gatherings, and riding in the car. With so many different voices, you have everything you want at your fingertips. My grandchildren love it also. Easy to carry, easy to play and inexpensive to buy. Everything you will ever want. You can play this even though you have never play another instrument before.

non musician turns musician

By 

from Klamath Falls, Oregon

Comments about Suzuki QChord:

I have looked all my life for something that I could play. I love music and wanted to play something (anything) although, I have no musical ability at all. I was introduced to the Q Chord at church camp last year (2004) and fell in love with it. After returning home, I ordered one and became an instant musician. But I had to order another one because everytime I would play it, my husband would take it away from me so he could play it. (he fell in love with it also) Now we have two of them.I play mine for our Cowboy Fellowship that we help pastor, and several people have ordered them after hearing mine.I took it to church camp this year (2005), played it and sang. Words cannot adequately describe how much I LOVE it.

A classroom MUST!

By 

from Grand Ledge, MI

Comments about Suzuki QChord:

I use this instrument with my severely impaired students. I play the chords and they strum. It is wonderful for music therapy and the kids absolutely love it. It is the best purchase I've made in a long time. My own kids at home love to play it as well, so it's hard to get practice time in. (They always want a turn)

VERY easy and fun

By 

from Western NY state

Comments about Suzuki QChord:

I played a 12-string guitar in my youth. A couple of years ago, after joining a local church with an active folk-rock music program, I decided to get a guitar again. Unfortunately over the years I've developed carpal tunnel syndrome and arthritis and the older fingers just wouldn't bend the way they used to. I thought there was no chance I'd be able to play again, but then I discovered the Q-Chord and now I can enjoy playing again.The Q-Chord is so simple to use that even a complete novice can sound good. It has over 100 voices, though I could wish for a little wider variety and better quality of voices. Still, at just over $200 the Q-Chord is a bargain and a godsend for those of who can't quite do what we used to in our youth.

It's a Miracle

By 

from Colorado Springs, CO USA

Comments about Suzuki QChord:

I can only say that this instrument is a miracle. It can make a person who know absolutely nothing about music sound like a pro. I played it for my church and everyone was amazed since they know my musical ability. The only problem with it that I can see is that once you pick it up and start playing it is hard to put it down. Time just flies while you play it.

Simply Amazing

By 

from Ripon CA USA

Comments about Suzuki QChord:

It is the easiest to play, best sounding musical instrument in existence. I don't like the sound cartridges because I want to do it all myself. I learned a few chords in a few minutes, and now I play almost everything that I can sing to, and sound like a professional while doing it. I have never been so impressed with anything I have ever bought before. I just can't leave it alone. I'm addicted.
