Speakers

I recently played a jazz gig with my Yamaha P 105. I didn't feel like lugging the QSC Eights and the Nord piano to the gig. It was a small venue, and really didn't require all of that equipment. I would love to have some small speakers that I could actually attached to my Nord piano for such an occasion. Something that would be like having one of the pianos with on-board speakers. Are there such a speaker that I could attached to the Nord piano somehow for those venues where it's intimate and doesn't require so much sound reinforcement?

I guess it depends on how small a venue but Bose makes some incredible small speaker systems as does Jambox. If you're talking about 30-50 people that might do the trick.

For those kind of gigs, I sometimes bring one(!) RCF HD-10A with my Nord (NS3 or just the NE6D), and then I actually sit on the speaker, so that I don't need a chair... And I play mono, and use e.g. the Amber upright... and it works really well :-) People tend to think I'm playing a real upright piano, if they only listen to me.

To my NP3 I use 2 Bose Compact L1 systems. This is easy to handle and provide superb sound experience for NP3 stereo piano sounds. For smaller settings I use just one Bose speaker with mono piano/sample sounds. The great think is that the Bose speakers fulfill both at PA and monitor and deliver great and balanced sound experience.

You won't go wrong with HK nanos. Great sound reproduction for NP3. Small tops too. I have the 602 system that will do a venue of up to 120 people and has a peak performance of 1500w. Alternatively the 302 system is 750w doing a venue of up to 80 people.
