Take That musical director, keys player and long-time Nord user, Mike Stevens, recently sent us a quick update from the band’s ‘III’ world tour.

"The Nord Electro 4 is an integral part of my setup”, says Mike.  "It provides superior strings and synth sounds and in particular the organ is just fantastic!”.

Mike also has a Nord Stage 2 HA88 out with him, which sees most action, not just with Take That, but with 10cc and Gary Barlow’s solo shows.  Fellow Take That keyboard player, Bernie Smith is also using a Nord Piano 2 HA88.

Confirming Nord's reputation as the keyboard of choice for many artists, Mike concludes, "The ease of use for live is invaluable and makes using it a complete pleasure...I really haven’t found anything better than my Nords”.
