  Tronichord/ Portachord (PC-27)

"Recommended for the hidden musician of any age"Casey Desmond with Tronichord

The Tronichord/ Portachord was the first in a long line of instruments produced by Suzuki Corporation and available through Suzuki San Diego. It is a very compact, cool and striking design indeed - and was the 'baby' in the range of two instruments (OM-27 was the big brother and released soon after). The cool blue touch sensitive membrane chord pads are positioned above the horizontal strumplate meaning you need to cross hands when playing both together. Only two controls were included; Chord Volume and SonicStrings Volume.

The layout of 27 chords is familiar to OM27 owners with Major on the upper row, Minor on the middle row and 7th on the bottom row. An "instant off" touch pad is located to the left of the main strumplate. On the underside you will find a trimpot for adjusting tuning. There is a built in speaker and it can operate from batteries or mains (via a DC adapter). In other words this is a fully functional, self contained little instrument that is completely portable.

An original Christmas advert for the Omnichord OM27 and Portachord read as follows:
