Nord Piano Stage 3

I have a Kawai upright brand new acoustic piano and bought this Nord to supplement when my acoustic is out of tune, or I want to have a little lighter action. The action, while lighter than my Kawai acoustic, is still very good. The sounds are incredible and and the quality is top notch. I bought the Nord wooden keyboard stand and it is top not notch, and built very good! I also bought the Nord music stand. For how that stand is made, it should be 1/3 the cost in my opinion, and that is my only gripe. Other than that, I am blown away and Sweetwater treated my great!

Simply Amazing

Let me begin by saying I've been a musician for 28 years, and without exaggerating I could have paid for a small house with what I've spend on instruments, and software, but this is my first review. I am a keyboard-addict. I presently own 7 including my first 2 keyboards that are well over 20 years old. I have owned over 20 in the past. I purchased the Yamaha Montage 7 a couple of months ago, and I'm blown away every single day with that instrument. I own a studio and I use it for everything from acoustic guitars, and bass's to synth's, electric piano's, organ's, and it is amazing, but the weak point for me is the piano's. I've been using Ivory 2, and it's a great program, but I decided to try the Nord Piano 3, and all I can say is this is the best instrument I have ever put my hands on. Every piano is better than any piano on the Montage, and that's saying something. I've never been a big fan of sampled upright piano's, because they always sounded a little cheesy to me, but the uprights on the NORD are ALL beautiful! Everything from the quality of the build, the way the keys are weighted, and balanced, to the incredible triple pedal, is top of the line. I am so pleased with this piano, I couldn't not share my experience with it. If you are looking for a top of the line piano, look no further. I just wish I'd found it sooner.
