Done! Nord half moon switch on Nord Stage 2 (D-I-Y)

Postby jaapb » 26 Feb 2017, 16:57

Hello guys,
I am very happy to share the results of my d-i-y-project attaching a Nord Half moon switch on my Nord Stage 2.
If you would like to do this as well, I hope this post will help you. (Also attached the Sketchup-document on this post).

My goal was to find a solution to attach the switch without adjusting my NS2. So no glue, velcro or whatever.
My mounting adapter has two holes for attaching the adapter on the bottomplate of the NS2, using already existing screws of the NS2.
It also has six nuts-holes to attach the Half moon switch in four possible positions.

I was inspired by @professor (see post nord-electro-forum-f9/installing-nord-half-moon-switch-on-electro-4-sw73-t6559-10.html).
1. First I did some calculation and drawing in Sketchup.
2. Printed it in 3D (I paid 17,- euro)
3. Then I glued six nuts (M4) in the six positions.
4. I attached the mounting adapter on my NS2 using the existing screws of the NS2.
5. Now I can decide on with position I like to have the Halfmoon Switch.

Good luck! :)

Super...I have it on my C2 but I use a pedal for that when I play organ on the Stage 2, so, not for me, but very nice job.

Very nice. Maybe you could print the space for the nuts from the "other side" so the remaining piece of plastic prevents the nuts to ever falling?

Yes, you're right Mr_-G ! That would be better. Unfortunately I discovered this to late.
A 2.0-version will be better with this improvement :clap:

Thanks Giovanni!
