The maker of Nord digital pianos is actually a company called Clavia, based in Stockholm, Sweden. It wasn’t until 1995 that they created their first synth, the Nord Lead. In 2005 they introduced their first stage piano, and here we are now, a few models later, talking about the Nord Piano 2. The Nord Piano 2 does come in a portable package sporting a premium 88-key Hammer Action keybed (HA88) or the ultra light weight 73 key Hammer Action Portable (HP) keybed. This beast features a superb hammer-action keybed and lets you easily play, split and layer grands, uprights and EPs from the Nord Piano Library with sounds from the Nord Sample Library, which contains over 1,000 high-quality sample-based instruments. Overall build quality is first class, it is weighty and solid, yet it’s just light enough to be carried by one person out of the box or in a soft case, or by two people in a hard case.
According to several Nord Piano 2 reviewers, some users have praised it for the Nicely balanced weighted action keys; Sounds authentic and is simple to use; High-quality on-board FX and EQ section. Also, some users have complained it for the No mod or pitch control; Addition of effects depth control and Nord’s analogue style delay would be good.
