Nord Piano 3 information

Important keybed clarification


Due to different technical aspects we made the decision not to use the Ivory keybed for the Nord Piano 3 as announced at NAMM 2016. With the exception of the key surface all aspects of the keybed are the same as when first announced.

Nefertiti MKI

Vintage, roadworn Electric Piano in the Nord Piano Library!


The Nefertiti MKI is a funky old workhorse that has spent most of its days in the darkest corners of the legendary Nefertiti jazz club in Gothenburg.

Some replaced tines of mixed generations (Square Silver Tone Bars/Ray Mac), tips, pickups and grommets which makes each note special in it’s own individual way. Slight unevenness in timbre, dynamics and sustain are classic attributes in these instruments and a big part of their charm and inspiring playability.

Check out some sound demos below and download the new Nefertiti MKI here!
