10/10 for Stage 2 EX HP76

Excellent review in the latest issue of MusicTech Magazine!


The Nord Stage 2 EX HP76 is reviewed in the October issue of MusicTech magazine where it receives a 10 out of 10 overall rating and the magazine’s coveted ‘Excellence’ award.

“Overall, it’s hard to fault the EX HP76. It provides probably the best level of portability vs keyboard quality within the Stage range, so will be a popular choice.  As for the range itself, those preset tweaks and extra memories refine an already excellent set of keyboards. Incredible sounds, enough control to dig deep into them and a superb, hands-on effects section”.
