For years, the Wurly in the Nord Electro was an immediate go to. Put the Electro into an amp, mic it up, and it was a dead ringer for the original in the track. When keyboardists came to the studio, most unanimously requested a more recent Nord Stage 2. It is now in my arsenal and I could not be more knocked out with the sounds! From the pianos and organs to the Mellotron sounds, it is all I need - not to mention the incredible rotor effects and options, since I am a rotating speaker freak
