The group's keyboard player Craig Potter is using a Nord Stage 88 as the group travel the country in support of new album Build a Rocket Boys!

He said the musical instrument will have an important role to play in Elbow's live shows from now on, reports MI-Pro.

"I'm so impressed by the Nord Stage 88 that it's made its way into our full-time live set up. I have a feeling it'll be there for some time," said Potter, who also acts as the group's producer.

The instrument offers a combination of vintage electric piano and high-quality acoustic piano sounds, along with a synthesizer section and organ modelling.
