What Charles say's about nord

“I have used nord for years because of its authentic tonewheel emulation. I rely on my nord Stage 3 every night on tour, because of its versatility and intuitive design. It gives me access to the best quality sounds, at the push of a button. No matter where I travel, I always feel at home behind my nord.”
