I really like this instrument. I find myself doing things with the strum plate that are intuitive, similar to when I play a wind instrument. It took two or three hours to read the manual and learn most everything but midi and accessing additional voices. In the process, I have developed an understanding of chord relationships that I never really got playing the guitar. Haven't amplified the sound or played with all the instrument combinations but I don't see why this instrument couldn't be a pretty good addition in many different settings.
I got my first Q-chord as a gift from my father in 1997. I had to have the strum plate replaced after 2 years but was able to get it done by the manufacturer for on $25 plus shipping and they but in a heavier duty plate to allow for the extra pressure my clients with Autism, applied when playing. Everyone in the family loved and so did my clients. As a Music Therapist, it was very easy to use and enjoyed. I especially liked the Christmas and Children's Cartridges and have purchased the pop songs and extra rhythms, with my recent purchase of a new Q-chord.
The QChord has a lot of great voices and is easy to play. It's small and light. I like that it came with batteries. I think the adapter should be included, too. Great case that holds everything. Adapter chord needs to be longer and it doesn't stay in the QChord very well. I'd like to use it to perform, but worry that batteries will die (would be expensive to keep buying eight batteries) and if I use the adapter it will fall out during a song. Having fun with it at home. Using it to write songs. Great to have drum beats to work with songwriting.
