What we say:

At A Glance:

The Nord Drum 3P percussion synthesizer firmly puts the focus on sound. With an intuitive user interface and six responsive drum pads, it's easy to dial in and tweak unique and interesting sounds. While other drum modules are still host to clunky cowbell and clave samples, the Nord Drum 3P finally delivers powerful synthesis into the hands of drummers.

Features We Love:


Nord are an industry standard for stage-ready keyboards and synthesizers. Their focus on tone sculpting without intense menu diving has been a breath of fresh air in the keyboard world. The 3P uses that same approach to bring cutting edge tones to the end of your sticks without you getting bogged down by menus and manuals. The 3P has a huge library of fantastic acoustic and electronic drum samples, but things really become exciting with the 3P's advanced sound engine. With resonant, subtractive and FM synthesis under the hood, the 3P sounds like nothing else on the market, it has a timeless sound that can go from subdued and minimal, to fierce and explosive with ease.


Nord's history began almost 40 years ago with the legendary Clavia DPP1 Drum Pad and the formation of the ddrum brand. Using their long history of electronic drum experience, Nord have created one of the best percussion pads available on the market. Each of the 6 pads has a natural response and rebound that propels sounds to evolve and react to each hit rather than just increase or decrease in volume. It's digital, but feels organic.


Having premier sounds alone wouldn't be enough for Nord, each tone can be sculpted or mangled with individual drive, crush, EQ, reverb and delay controls.


  • Awesome sounds that are truly individual
  • Easy and effective user interface
  • Can be mounted like a rack tom

Overall Rating 4.8 (4 reviews)

Well made and unique bit of kit. Will probably never run out of ways to get different sounds. Great fun addition to drum kit.

Solid instrument. Sensitive enough to be played comfortably with the hands. Sometimes there does seem to be some background noise particularly when played at low volumes. This can be mitigated somewhat by using sticks.

Mark S. - 17/6/2020

Apart from being a really powerful drum synth the pads are very responsive and nice to play on. Huge sounds from a compact package.
