collapse expand iconDescription

The Nord Grand stage piano raises the bar for what a professional stage piano can be. Combining Nord's award winning sound engine and interface with a premium 88 note hammer action keybed, the Nord Grand provides an extraordinary playing experience with its smooth, dynamic touch modeled after world class acoustic grand pianos. Perfect for live gigs or studio work, the Nord Grand gives musicians a powerful set of tools for crafting their signature sound.

Premium Keybed With Triple Sensors

The Nord Grand's superior playability comes from its premium hammer action keybed with advanced triple sensors that capture the movements of the hammers with precision, delivering the natural feel of an acoustic grand piano. The keybed's balanced weighting and responsive dynamics allow for nuanced expression and fluid playability across the keyboard.

Massive Selection of High-Fidelity Sounds

The Nord Grand features a curated collection of stunning sounds from the Nord Grand Factory bank, including 10 unique grand pianos, 9 upright pianos, and 10 enhanced electric pianos. An additional array of strings, choirs, brass and synth sounds from the Nord Sample Library 3.0 provides a sonic palette suited to any musical genre. All sounds are easily replaced using the Nord Sound Manager software.

Tweakable Effects and Advanced Features

The Nord Grand's intuitive interface puts essential controls for layers, splits, transposition and effects at your fingertips. The effect section offers instantly tweakable emulations of classic stomp boxes like phaser, flanger, vibe and tremolo. You can also add dimension to your sound with reverb, delay, and a 3 band EQ. For advanced playability, the Nord Grand includes features like advanced string resonance, soft release and dynamic pedal noise. With its lightweight design and range of onboard pro level features, the Nord Grand is ideal for any live performance situation.

Premium Portability

Despite its robust sound and build, the Nord Grand weighs only 46 pounds, allowing for easy transport to rehearsals, studio sessions or shows.
