Nord Stage 3 88: Ultra-light 88-key Stage Piano
Excellent playability from the fully weighted Hammer Action keybed
The Nord Stage 3 88 sports Nord's fully weighted Hammer Action keybed, giving you the true feel of a real piano. It's ideal for acoustic piano sounds, and many keyboardists at Irvine Art & Music agree the natural feel is well suited to electric piano, synth, and organs too. The Nord Stage 3 88 keybed has a note range of A to C.
Piano, organ, and synth sound engines onboard the Nord Stage 3 88

You'll be able to cover a wide range of musical styles in a single session, and a slew of dedicated function controls makes it easy to tweak your sounds until they're perfect for your application. And with two independent instrument slots on the Nord Stage 3 88, you can load up two pianos, two organs, two synths, and effects, all simultaneously to create huge layered sounds.
