The Nord C1 Combo Organ is a truly portable professional dual manual electric organ. Somebody once said "less is more." In this case, it only applies to the weight. At just 33 pounds, the C1 is one of the most player-friendly clonewheels in the world.

Some distinct organ sounds have remained popular during recent decades of pop and rock 'n' roll music”soulful sounds that breathe and growl that can only be found in heavy, bulky vintage instruments. Apart from sourcing, restoring, and maintaining these vintage organs, their size and weight make them less than ideal for the gigging musician ” especially when adding their amplifiers, stands, and other necessary gear. Even recent clonewheels come in different parts, and can weigh as much as 95 pounds. With the C1 organ, this is no longer a problem.

Nothing quite sounds like a tonewheel or transistor organ. Each instrument's sound was the result of complex interactions between different electromechanical components. Sample-based organs can only play back the result of these interactions, but cannot duplicate the processes involved. Without these crucial steps represented, the response and feel of actually playing the source instrument is lost.

Thus Clavia uses advanced modeling technology to achieve these interactions virtually in a real-time, duplicating these interactions. This gives the Nord C1 an accurate feel and sound, unmatched in any other digital organ available.

Nord C1 Review

By Joe

from Pennsylvania

Comments about Nord C1 Combo Organ:

I am impressed with the C1's B-3, Farfisa, and Vox Continental sound. The light-weight organ makes it very easy carting gig to gig. The lighted drawbars was a change, but it was easy to figure out. This organ is one for all time - the combination of the three organs in one is worth it's weight in gold, along with it's light weight. I'd recommend anyone to test this product in your local music store. Also, the fire red color usually gets compliments from audiences, as well as the dead-on Hammond and Vox sound! I Highly recommend this product to anyone who needs incredible and authentic organ in their music.

I Was Skeptical...

By Bruce Schaefer

from Tyler, TX

Comments about Nord C1 Combo Organ:

Our church purchased the C1 to use until we could get our XC-3 repaired. The plan was for it to become a backup/portable "extra" organ keyboard once the "regular" organ was fixed. The sales rep said it was a killer B-3/C-3 sound-alike. Having heard that many times before, I didn't really believe him. The moment we hooked it into the sound system and gave it a test run, we were ALL blown away. We had been running a Hammond XC-3 through a 122 Leslie which was mic-ed in a back room so that the sound could be better blended with the rest of the band. The C1 produces an UNBELIEVABLY accurate screamin' B sound. It completely nails the unique tone qualities of the B - MUCH better than even the XC-3. I usually avoid "virtual" Leslie imitations like the plague - but this one is spot-on. We can now run the organ sound through a direct box to the system and can capture every detail of the classic tonewheel sound. Nearly everyone has noticed the improvement over the mic-ed Leslie. A few people even thought I was just pushing the C1 because it was a new toy! They are shocked when I tell them that the C1 is a better reproduction of the original B sound than the XC-3 is. I have decided to use the C1 full time - we're selling the XC-3! The only challenge we've had is the limited midi bass pedal options. The set I want can't be delivered for at least another 5 months. We settled for a 13-note flat pedal set. It's a challenge to run the bass with my foot like I used to, but it's getting easier. I would recommend the C1 to ANYONE who wants the classic B-3 sound. It can go toe-to-toe with anything else out there.
