Dual Manual Organ with Drawbars

The Nord C2D Combo Organ gives you two sets of physical drawbars per manual. Perfect for players who use the drawbars as well as the keys, the C2D includes a handy new left-hand preset section for hands-on control. In addition, the upper manual has been tilted, so you get better access and smoother transition when switching between manuals. Nord has also improved the mechanical key-click, percussion, and rotary-speaker simulations. If you're after the real-deal organ playing experience, we've got the instrument for you: the Nord C2D Combo.

Nord C2D Combo Organ at a Glance:
  • Do you play the drawbars?
  • Sophisticated simulation
  • Improved rotary-speaker sim - and more
Do you play the drawbars?

With the Nord C2D Combo Organ, you not only get physical drawbars - you get two sets per manual! This immediate, hands-on drawbar access gives you a holy-grail clonewheel playing experience that will inspire your creativity.

Sophisticated simulation

The Nord C2D sports redesigned mechanical key click simulation. These characteristic sounds are an integral component of the classic tonewheel playing experience - if they're not "right," the illusion is shattered (along with your inspiration). The C2D gets 'em right. In addition, Nord's freshly-tweaked percussion model gives you more control over percussion levels when playing near-legato.

Improved rotary-speaker sim - and more

The Nord C2D features a redesigned simulation of a vintage Leslie 122 rotary-speaker cab. The C2D also includes Nord's groovy Vox and Farfisa transistor organ simulations as well as Nord's fabled sampled Baroque Pipe Organ.

Nord C2D Combo Organ Features:
  • Portable organ for players who use drawbars as well as keys
  • Two sets of physical drawbars per manual
  • New left-hand preset section provides hands-on control
  • Upper manual and panel tilted for easier playing
  • Redesigned mechanical key-click and percussion models

Nord C2D = Perfect Hammond B3/C3/A100 clone

The Nord C2D provides the best means of replicating the Hammond B3/C3/A100 you're accustomed to WITHOUT A LESLIE (i.e. bass rig, powered speaker, etc.). When you do decide to pair it with a Leslie (i.e. 122), the sound is INCREDIBLE! I'd get the Ashby Gigger HalfMoon rotary switch (Google it). Concerning pedals, I'd go with Nord 27 PedalKeys. In my video demo below, I'm using the JG3 Tech pedals. They are a complete DIY project (had to replace cheap springs with rubber bands, pedals cut out when major appliances turn on). For a stand, I'd go with the Quik Lok WS-540 Mixer Stand. To hear my 4-minute Nord C2D organ demo, please search in YouTube: "Nord C2D Organ Demo by Cedric Jackson | NordKeyboards"

The #1 Hammond Clone!

I grew tired of moving my B3 and decided to look into clones. I purchased an XK3c system when it came out but always felt it was lacking something in the sound, in number of drawbars, and Leslie simulation. Fast forward a couple of years and Nord releases the C2D! Wow, the interface is laid out like my B3 and the sound is spot on. I have actually considered selling the B3! Before settling on the C2D I traveled to a music shopand tried out a Hammond SK2. I found the layout, sound, and build quality superior on the C2D. Plus, the SK2 is made in China! Bottom line... the Nord C2D is the #1 Hammond clone!

100% Organ

I actually bought this for my step son (he's gonna pay me back) - he's an awesome keyboard player - with a great left hand. We really agonized over which keyboard to get - there are several in the 3-5 thousand dollar range that we were considering. My own research had indicated that Nord was the way to go - but I was thinking the Nord Stage Two. My research was based on reading on line - and talking with the keyboard player in a band that is actually quite successful in our three state area - he plays the Stage Two - and reported to me that it is hands down the nicest keyboard ever - for a working musician - everything you need - in a single platform - awesome sound samples - and super easy to navigate. When I told him my step son was thinking about the C2D - he said - "well - if he just wants to play organ - that would be fine". (The C2D is the originator of the samples - but the stage two also uses them (along with a lot of other sounds.) In the end - the step son decided that he really did want to concentrate on being "an organ player" - so we went with an organ only instrument. At that point we were kind of down to the Hammond XK2 (is that right?) - and the Nord C2D. He had watched and listened to hundreds of you-tube videos of players on both - and was leaning towards the Hammond - as maybe a little more "authentic" (and a little cheaper maybe) - because of course the sound that all these digital organs are trying to emulate is the Hammond B3 - right? But - when we got up to Sweetwater - and played them along side each other - there was no question - the Nord sounded better. Now - we were NOT expert at all the settings at that point - and there IS a lot to learn - maybe a more experienced technician could have tweaked the Hammond for us and got it to sound very similar - I don't know. But out of the box - the Nord sounded better hands down. That was a month ago. Today - he is still extremely happy with his choice. He says it is an awesome awesome organ. Since it does not really have a bass synth "mode" we were a little scared it might not have a "big enough sounding" bottom end for his left hand - but he reports there are several VERY NICE bass sounds. And the top is magnificent. The Nord C2D - is "only" an organ (I don't even think there IS a piano sound) - but truly - it is as good of an organ as you could ask for. Obviously at like $ 3,700 - it is only for the serious players - but - this organ - really can take you (I would say) ANYWHERE your talent will permit - and that would include - clear to the top.

The Best Of The Clones!

I had a Hammond SK2 on order until I came across the CD2. The CD2's build quality is superior to the Hammond and I like the fact that the CD2 is made in Sweden instead of China (where the Hammond is made). The C2D is laid out pretty much like an actual B3 and when paired with a Leslie or a Neo Ventilator it is almost impossible to tell it from the real deal. Thank you Nord!

Better than most Hammonds

I sold my XK-Pro system to buy this, because it destroys the Hammond in tonal authenticity, and is half the weight. Nord really outdid themselves; I can't imagine a keyboard/plug-in getting closer to the actual sound of a tonewheel organ. Plus it is quite easy to tweak, whereas the Hammond took forever to edit, with minimal positive results. I usually play it through a Leslie 145 and a GK bass rig, which sounds incredible. The Leslie sim can hold its own, especially run stereo. The synth bass function is awesome too!
