The product price includes a one year warranty and 30 day money back guarantee.

However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 3 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 60 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first two years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 3 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
  • If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

88 Semi-Weighted Full Size Keys

The Nektar Impact LX 88 features 88 semi-weighted full size keys, giving you a natural and more human feel when playing the keys. The semi-weighted keys are designed to give a realistic feel to your playing, perfect for pianists transitioning to the digital world. The keys are also covered to protect against dirt and dust and other particulates. Also included are four velocity curves with three fixed velocity levels for a more consistent output. Pitch bend and modulation wheels are also included as well as octave and transpose buttons for added control.

Versatile Control

The Nektar Impact LX 88 features a wide variety of controls and parameters that you can use within your DAW or in live performances to add a new dynamic to your playing style. Eight velocity sensitive pads are included at the top of the keyboard, ideal for finger drumming and triggering samples on the fly. Each of these pads can be assigned to any MIDI note number or MIDI CC message for added versatility. The ‘Pad Learn’ features also allows you to easily trigger a sound or note by simply selecting the pad and playing the sound you want. Also included are eight faders which can be assigned to control a range of parameters within your DAW. The faders can be used in your DAW’s mixer as well as being useful for controlling automation and more. You can pan your sound with ease using the eight pots.

Intuitive Layout

The highly intuitive layout of the Nektar Impact LX 88 is designed to improve your workflow, with its ergonomic configuration placing every major control and function at your fingertips. There are multiple modes for navigation, allowing you to switch between different control such as mixer, instrument and preset views. Five preset memory locations allow you to store your own custom setups for quick recall later. You can also navigate further using the track change, patch change and plug-in buttons to control more in-depth parameters within your DAW.
