When we purchased the Nord Stage 3 Compact for our son, we wanted to make sure he was able to protect it when traveling to/from performances. This gig bag is a perfect fit for the keyboard and is really well-made, with plenty of internal padding. It also has a nice outer pocket for his cords/pedals, and shoulder straps so he can easily carry it like a backpack. That keeps him hands-free to carry other equipment or a small amp. It's an absolute must-have!
