Nord Keyboards are handmade in Sweden to an extremely high standard and are designed with the professional or semi-professional musician in mind. Whilst equally at home in the studio or on the stage, it's within a live setting that the sound quality, ease of use and build quality of a Nord keyboard become apparent.
Nord produces a fantastic range of keyboards, synthesisers and digital pianos which are noted for their excellent sound quality and rugged construction. In fact, Nord keyboards are incredibly popular with live performers thanks to the lightweight design features. Take a look at the live performances of any major pop or rock artist today, and the chances are you'll spot the distinctive red of a Nord keyboard amongst the musicians.
Nord pianos were first made in 1983. Then, in 2005 the Nord Stage combined acoustic and electric piano sounds, organ emulations and effects laden synthesisers, making it incredibly popular with live artists. Roland produces keyboards, synthesisers and drum kits and as a brand is well known for innovation. Fans of Nord keyboards enjoy the piano sounds and ease of use, with all the features and effects in easy reach. If you plan to use your keyboard mostly for performances and live play then a Nord keyboard is a great choice.
Nord keyboards were designed for the gigging musician and so each style offers something different. Stage pianists and electro lovers can both find a Nord keyboard that hits the right note. The Nord Piano 5 is top of the class for acoustic sounds with electric functionality. It’s also very responsive to touch, for dynamic playing and impressive control. The Nord Electro keyboard is a versatile and powerful electro piano with a very user-friendly interface that marries stunning sound with amazing functionality.
Nord pianos are ever popular primarily because of the range of sound they produce. From acoustic piano notes right through to vintage synth sounds, the Nord gives musicians complete control and ultimate choice. The instantly recognisable red colour is a favourite amongst artists simply because of how it looks but, with Nord, you also get high quality sound and a huge range of features. Presets can be updated regularly for free using Nord Sound Manager Software, and the interactive front panel uses LED lighting so it can be seen when on stage. The four main effects, piano, organ, global and synth are clearly divided into sections making in-the-moment play an absolute joy.
