Easy to use

Rosalind - I Q do You?The Q Chord is quite simply a unique instrument that anyone can play, from novice to accomplished musician. By using the basic features, the player will always sound 'in tune' and the 'strum plate' has been designed to avoid any 'wrong notes'!

Just press a chord button, strum the "strings" on the unique "strumplate". Always in tune, you'll sound great using just the basic features, without ever making a mistake.  

The Q Chord is an ideal accompaniment instrument, which therefore makes it popular with a wide variety of different outlets and groups, such as churches, Primary schools, Pre-schools/Kindergarten, Scouts, Girl Guides, caravan and camping etc. The very soothing melodic sounds of the Q Chord make it ideal for use in therapy groups and therapeutic applications. Many organisations are now using it for this.

Educational/ Schools

Anyone can create great sounds from the Q Chord, which in itself is an inspiration to use it more and more. This somewhat addictive aspect to the  instrument can motivate the novice to learn more about the music they are creating. Multiple skill levels on the Q Chord will allow natural progression in this way. Many schools have now adopted the Q Chord as an accompaniment instrument for classroom sessions or for individual student tuition.


There are a number of accessories available for the Q Chord, the most notable of which are the song cartridges. These plug into the instrument and the karaoke effect makes it possible to play as well as sing along to pop favourites, country and western, religious, children's favourites, party hits etc. Great fun for all the family to join in! The Q Chord is easily connected to a speaker, for increasing volume to larger audiences, if required. The MIDI facilities also allow connection to other instruments or to a computer if needed.
