Well, you’re on a Nord forum, and everybody knows that the only reason we buy those is because the colour is unique and makes us feel elite... go right ahead.

I remember some Madonna or Jack White stage pics with all white keyboards rigs.

Meanwhile, here are others candidates.


Moog Little Phatty (sooo sexy in white!)

And of course (but that's custom...):

Search google images for white synthesizer and you would be surprised about how many there are.

Most of those that aren’t custom jobs have been mentioned here.

Yes, you're kind of right, not only for the red the color of course but when I bought my first Nord in 2011, it was the first time that my main keyboard was not black...And red is my favorite color....
But yes, the Phatty in white and blue Led is so sexy....If I would have been crazy (and have the cash for it...), I would have bought it for the color....And the Moog sound that I don't have in my palette of sound....

Quick story.

At one point last year, I was thinking of having a spare of my set-up for not having to carrying it twice a week for both bands : a second Little Phatty and a second Nord Electro.
There had been this local ad for months, a white LP, I think it even had the CV out option installed... and the ATA compliant Moog case. The price was kind of fair.

I eventually decided to contact the seller, he answered: "Man, you're just a bit late, it went away just yersterday..." :D

I played the Mellotron Micro at NAMM this year and thought it was so cool looking and it is built like a tank. With the Nord Sample Library covering so many Mellotron sounds, it would be a bit of overkill to have an actual Mellotron, but it looks great in white and sounds great too!

*ahem*

That’s not an „actual Mellotron“.
