I don't get it either other than it's slightly better than a Piano 3 and probably costs the same for Clavia to produce, so it's a "free" upgrade for them, if you will. The problem, like you point out, is that is doesn't qualify as anything other than a slightly improved Piano 3, which is itself, not a very good stage piano in comparison with what's out there in 2018. At this point, I'd prefer a Korg SV-1 to the Stage, it has a very nice keybed and wonderful EP sounds, even if it's not graded hammer action, it's very nice to play on. I suppose DualKB and the two external MIDI panels do qualify for something, I'm not gigging with mine, so I'm essentially misusing it as a studio piano, so read these comments in that light. The sad thing is that I liked the Piano 3 better as a piano than I do the Stage 3. The keybed was a little better, the keys bounced more, but I thought the sample and piano memory was way too small and I ordered the Stage 3 88 the week it was announced hoping it would be as nice a piano as the Piano 3. Unfortunately, a few months in, I have come to the unfortunate conclusion that it is not.

We assume that's fixed because there was a specific S/N range of the Piano 3, not all here were in that range (I was and didn't have the problem thankfully).

not much action in the nord piano forum . . .

does the nord piano 4 do or have anything that the stage 3 88 doesn’t?

i know it has the triple sensor keyboard, and a slightly different action...
how different is the action?

thanks,
jeff

edit: hello, hello, hello, is there anybody out there . . .
