The dual manual Nord C1 Combo Organ comprises three types of vintage organs.

Show full description »

Some distinct organ sounds have remained popular throughout the decades of pop and rock & roll music - soulful sounds that breathe and growl as found only in heavy, bulky vintage instruments. Apart from difficulties in sourcing, restoring, and maintaining these vintage organs, their sheer size and weight make them anything but ideal for the gigging musician - especially when you add out-board effects, amplifiers and speakers.

Now Clavia brings you the very best of those classic setups in a single package. The dual manual Nord C1 Combo Organ comprises three types of vintage organs: a classical tonewheel, Vox* Continental and Farfisa* Compact Deluxe, all carefully modeled from their originals. Also featuring our famous tube style overdrive, rotating speaker simulation, delay, reverb and 3-band EQ effects, the Nord C1 will tailor sounds for your body, mind and soul.

The original mechanical tonewheel design as well as the Vox* and Farfisa* transistor designs result in diverse interactions between the different parts involved in the sound generating process. Modern sampling technology is able to play back the result of these interactions, but cannot duplicate the dynamic and random processes involved. Without these crucial steps represented, the response and feel of actually playing the instrument is inevitably lost.

The solution is a real-time, DSP-based model describing the construction and interaction between each part involved. The Nord C1 Combo Organ offers three different organs - all carefully modeled from vintage originals - with the sonic result of each part of the tonewheel and transistor designs recreated faithfully.

Nord C1 Combo Organ Reviews

10/10

Nord C1

If you want a proper Hammond set up without breaking your back or the bank in van hire fees then do yourself a favour and buy a C1. The touch response on the keyboards is mind blowing, the rotary is mind blowing, the overdrive, delay and reverb effects are just top notch. I\'ve put it through my 80watt Kelly & my 200watt Peavey KB350 and as far as I\'m concerned you don\'t need a leslie, also the bass sound is amazing. Nord have been very clever to include Vox and Fafisa setups. I love my C1 and now that I have one I can\'t go back to single manuel organ set up.

Nord C1

The NORD C1 is the answer to every organist's dreams: ie. a duel manual, self contained instrument, with a dedicated bass pedal input, that can be carried up and down the stairs under one arm!
When I first purchased the instrument, it felt and sounded impressive enough.
However, within a few days of owning it, Clavia posted an updated operating system on their website (OS1.04) which substantially and noticeably improved aspects of the rotary speaker simulation (warmer sound), the keyboard action (it made the keys a little “hotter”), and the overdrive (more responsive to the sweep of the swell pedal).
This is one major advantage of buying a Nord instrument : the fact that it is work in progress, and when they improve any aspect of it, you’ll have access to that free of charge.
The sound of the tonewheel drawbars can be varied by choosing 1 of 3 drawbar models: one clean and two vintage (not to be confused with the 3 different organ models). Utilizing these with the onboard EQ and overdrive means you can replicate just about any Hammond sound you’ve heard on any record!
The reverb and delay both sound superb, and give a wide scope for differing levels of effect.
The layout of the instrument has been exceptionally well thought out and geared towards being able to tweak many aspects of the sound during a live performance. This is especially useful if you're playing left hand bass, and only have one free hand some of the time to tweak with!
Speaking of left hand bass, I have noticed, after several gigs, that the bass sound from the lower drawbars is an extremely punchy and well defined sound, and is superior to my last instrument (a digital Korg BX-3).
Another thoughtful addition by Nord is the fact that they've labeled the back panel inserts on the top of the instrument, thus saving the need to go round the back and bend down to make connections. Small point I know, but those of us who gig a lot appreciate things like this!

All in all I can honestly say the C1 is the best purchase I've made for a long time.

Mike Gorman.
