Check out this mini article about Ric’key Pageot (Madonna, Cirque Du Soleil) that is featured on the webpages of Nord Keyboards!
“One thing that I did notice on the Stage EX 88, other than the great new harpsichord sounds, is the new sustain pedal action. As opposed to sounding louder when you play a series of notes, like some other stage pianos, it just sustains, and that’s great.
I’m not afraid to sustain too many notes at once, resulting into playing with more emotion like on a real grand piano. That’s a big plus. Furthermore, the latest Rhodes sounds are frighteningly close to the real deal. Oh, and the weighted hammer-action is just the way I like it. The Nord Stage is my main instrument.”
– Ric’key Pageot, keyboardist with Madonna, and multi-instrumentalist, producer, composer, music director
