"With the release this week of new album 'Build A Rocket Boys!' and UK tour kicking off in Glasgow next week, Elbow have added a Nord Stage to their live rig. Craig Potter, Elbow's keyboard player and producer says, 'I'm so impressed by the Nord Stage 88 that it's made its way into our full time live set up. I have a feeling it'll be there for some time!' The timing of the tour's rehearsal period meant it was a Nord Stage EX added to the live rig which has now been superceded by the Nord Stage 2 Series."more
Ruban describes the synthesizers used by Quincy in Multi Love. It itn't mentioned, but underneath the Univox MiniKorg 700 is a red keyboard. It has the iconic red color of a Nord keyboard, you can see when they pan over it you can clearly see "Nord Stage" and at 1:26 you can for a split second see 2. Also in their [live performance at KEXP](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rRaFVyuBEtg) you see the same red keyboard that perfectly fits the description of a Nord Stage 2 when they pan over quincy.more
"I use a Nord Stage 2 SW-73. After trying dozens of pro keyboards, I found the Stage 2 to be by far the best choice for me. My SW-73 is lightweight, has an intuitive operating system, and is extremely versatile." - [Nicholas Petricca](http://www.nordkeyboards.com/artist/nicholas-petricca).more

From an interview with Boom Gaspar and Josh Evans on Keyboard Mag. "The combination of the grittiness of a vintage B-3, the reliability and quality of the Nord Stage, and the flexibility of the Receptor and [Native Instruments] Kontakt allows Boom to have a good hybrid between vintage keyboard sounds and modern synthesis and expandability."more
This keyboard has beautiful sounds - Rhodes, grand piano, uprights, Hammond - and is versatile in its use. It's my favorite key intrument while performing. The touch is good. The interface is quite overwhelming in the beginning. But after a few weeks you'll find yourself clicking buttons and turning wheels like crazy.

Sadly it is usually relegated to practise time only as I'm so often on the road with other instruments, but I adore this beauty. Lovely feel, and the best Hammond & Rhodes sounds I've ever heard.
