2023 - and Suzuki celebrate their 70th anniversary. What better way to do this than revisit a few of their most popular musical instruments. Included is the Omnichord! Although Suzuki missed the deadline, it was shown for the first time on January 25th 2024 at the NAAM Music Conference, USA.

Rather than produce an evolution of the Qchord, Suzuki have opted to 're-imagine' the Omnichord series and include favourite features from earlier models along with new.

New Chords and Rhythms

For the first time since the 1980s, Suzuki expand the chord pallet from 84 chords to 108, with newly added Sus. 4 and Add 9 chords. Rather than full arrangements, as per OM-100 to QC-1, we see the return of the timeless OM-27/36/84 approach to rhythm and accompaniment. Familiar patterns, along with a Trap Beat (Hip Hop) and tasteful Disco Funk are included for those who are 'Gettin' Jiggy wit It'.

Dual Strumplate Voices

The OM-108 brings back a strumplate feature only ever included on the OM-84: Dual Strumplate Voice. OM-84 owners could blend two voices (straight and modulated) together, a really clever way of adding colour to the strumplate. The OM-108 has a variety of primary and secondary voices, including the original OM-84 tones. In addition the 'Omnichord' voicing on OM-108 uses true analogue circuitry - quite an achievement in 2024

The Shape of Things To Come

Suzuki teased us with the shape of the OM-108 for a year. It is slightly smaller and lighter than previous models making it more 'travel friendly and easier to handle on a gig. Layout is similar to the OM84, but with a wider strumplate, fully sensitive across 100% of the surface.
