Kawai Responsive Hammer keybed with Ivory Touch
The well balanced and responsive triple sensor keybed features an advanced mechanism that provides extraordinary control both when playing percussively or pianissimo with fluent repetitions and retriggering without lifting the keys completely. The addition of an Ivory Touch surface gives the keybed an optimal feel and authenticity.

Advanced String Resonance
Nord’s unique Advanced String Resonance reproduces the intricate interplay of piano strings resonating at their fundamental or harmonic frequencies when other notes are played on our Grand and Upright piano sounds.
