New Omnichord  - Sound teaser #1 29th May 2023

Suzuki have released a teaser featuring a few of the sounds from the new Omnichord. These are a selection of classic Omnichord sounds that feature on the new model.

Original Voice 00:00~
The strum plate sound and tone of the OM-27, OM36, and OM84 was produced by analogue circuits. The new Omnichord also uses some analogue technology to bring this original sound back to life!
This sound, which is unique to analogue circuits, should be something that makes you feel, 'This is the Omnichord.'
Harp 0:14~
The beautiful tone that was installed on to the original OM-250M and OM-300 was resurrected with even higher sound quality on to the new Omnichord.
Celeste 0:22~
This is also a beautiful tone originally installed on to the OM-250 and OM-300. This is also resurrected with even higher sound quality.

Suzuki OM-27 Special Plectrum

OM27 plectrumWe have managed to obtain a small amount of original specification material used for the early Omnichord Strumplate plectrum. The first 40,000 or so model OM27s used a conductive strumplate that was hard to play for many owners. These required Suzuki's special plectrum to operate and were included with a new Omnichord. The original plectrums have not been available for over 40 years and command very high prices.

These plectrums are hand cut to order by us. We have very limited material so maximum of two per order. Each plectrum includes a reproduction Strumplate Notice as packed with the original OM27s.

NOTE: Not for use with later models

Price shown includes plectrum and delivery.
