Nord Wave - used price?

Postby PRaah » 09 Apr 2019, 11:37

What's the price of used Nord Wave nowadays? I would have a chance to buy that (condition: good), but I have no clue because I've never owned Nord products myself.

Thanks!

Where are you from? Price will depend on lot on currency and local availability. In my place (Italy) there's always a few ads hovering around the 900-1000 € mark

Well, even if it's called one for the best Nord synth, the very small memory won't wotprth 1200 US$ for me....I would,have said 800/900$....More, try to find a more recent synth....

The fact is, the Wave is still pretty unique. There were never a lot of synths able to use samples as oscillators, and the Wave is still actually very powerful.

The current alternatives are only the Blofeld/Sledge (they share the same engine) which have less than 1/3 the sample memory of the Wave, and much less polyphony.
Or the Prophet X/XL which is huge and prohibitively expensive.

All in all, the Wave is still a very good option.

Yes, yes, I agree, well, the Prohet X is THE option for that...but wfiiuuuooou!!!! What a steep price....
So, 1200 US$ is a "fully yes, go and grab it" deal? The subject was at what price?..

I got one a couple of months ago for just 650€ and I'm very excited for that. They are quite rare here in Greece but I was lucky enough to catch the opportunity. In fact, due to the economic crisis of the last 10 years there are people who give away instruments in very low prices. I have noticed that in the UK there also good prices, last time I looked at reverb.com there were some for 900 or 1000 British Pounds if I remember well. I guess the Brexit may be a reason for that...

Ok, it seems I'm going to get it cheap so this will be good addition to my other synths. Thanks all for the comments!

I just paid approx €1,000 for mine a month or so ago (to get shipped to Dublin from the UK). It's a powerful beast! It's currently more than fulfilling my prophet X itch!
