Wave2 Wooden Side Panels?

Postby neckbeard » 04 May 2021, 11:22

Does anyone know of any aftermarket wood side panels? I have a Stage3 and I would like the Wave2 to match. I have googled and skimmed the last few years of posts here already.
Cheers and thanks in advance!!!

There are companies that make aftermarket Wooden panels for synths,theres normally some on eBay,I'm sure they could make you some,I'd like to have some for my Nordwave 2 also,I think they would just set the Synth off,I don't know why Nord decided to fit them with a grey Logoed Metal trim,its similar to the A1's side trims, they don't tend to look as nice, not sure what the deciding factor was to not have the wooden look trims on the Wave 2

I prefer the newer end cheeks that Nord are using since the NL4 and Stage 3,I much prefer them to the older glossy panels,that I had on the Stage 2

I agree. It's the first Nord EVER without red sides (wood or metal) and it just looks...weird.

Plus, I've never been a fan of big logos or huge lettering on instruments. On the Wave 2, when seen from the right-back angle, there are no less than THREE big "NORD WAVE 2" logos crowded together in a few centimeters.
A bit too much maybe?
