OVERVIEW

The Yamaha NP31 Piaggero gives you classic Yamaha piano tone and 76 full-sized keys in an ultra-portable package weighing in at just 12 pounds. Operating on just 6 AA batteries (not included), you don't even need a power outlet to play your piano anywhere your music takes you. The NP31 has an easy-to-use panel design with dedicated voice-select buttons. Built-in metronome with adjustable tempo and time signature appeals to the pianist who knows that practice makes perfect. The NP31's Graded Soft Touch Action emulates the graded resistance of an acoustic piano, only without the added weight of hammers. The combination of its 76-key Graded Soft Touch Action, ultra portability, and Yamaha's legendary stereo sampled grand piano, make the NP31 the ultimate practice piano for the intermediate player.

Slim, light, and compact design
Walk in, carrying the NP31 with one hand, and play anywhere thanks to the new slim, light and compact design-it's that easy.

Graded Soft Touch Keyboard
The NP31 has a 76-key, Graded Soft Touch Action keyboard. Just like an actual piano, the lower keys are heavy in touch and gradually become higher as you go up the scale-all the while retaining the soft touch of a digital keyboard. The soft touch makes it easier for beginning and intermediate students to develop the physical requirements of piano technique while learning to play expressively. This facilitates a more natural transition to the weighted keys of more advanced keyboards or the action of an acoustic piano.

Advanced Wave Memory (AWM) stereo sampling
AWM is a stereo sampling technique that creates superb wave data, which mirrors the sound and expression of the original instrument. It creates a unique, rich sound by using multiple waveforms. On an actual piano, the attack and harmonics of notes change as they are played at different volumes. AWM emulates this by substituting appropriate waveforms when keys are struck with varying intensity. This enables you to have a more realistic musical experience as you progress.

Built-in Stereo Speaker System
The NP31 uses highly efficient amplifiers that pack more sound into a lighter digital piano. With 6 watts per channel, the NP31 is ready to go loud and proud whenever you are.

Piano Preset songs
These presets provide performance data for piano songs as well as demo songs for your listening pleasure.

Note: This keyboard does not ship with batteries or a power supply. We enthusiastically recommend the Yamaha SK-D2 Survival Kit, which contains the appropriate power supply for your keyboard, as well as a footswitch, a set of headphones, a two-year extended warranty, rebate coupons and helpful software. #H65814

Not sure what the others before me were playing or their experience level..I've been playing piano since 5, professional since 11 and teaching in a public school now. This by far is one of the better portable keyboards with a realistic acoustic piano and Fender Rhodes sound and I have tried MANY keyboards in my career of over 40 years. Great for practice purposes and then put through a PA system is even better! The combo Grand and Strings (pushing both buttons down)is an excellent Piano/Strings combination..warm strings with just the right amount of delay after lifting off the keys. Numerous combinations with the layering. I also MIDI the keyboard with a Korg XR module and it opens even more possibilities. I am purchasing another for my recording studio at home!

Good enough to satisfy my cravings to play every once in a while but does not have the feel of a real piano. The SFT must be set to hard to manage my touch. If you get your fingers to high on the key it will not depress since you are too close to the lever point. Very different from real piano touch. It will do.
Would recommend only if person is not looking for proficient play.

      Comments about Yamaha NP31 76-Key Mid-Level Piaggero Ultra-Portable Digital Piano:

      My son has taken piano for 3 years now. I wanted to surprise him with a nice keyboard that was more like a piano... after doing some research, I decided to pick this Yamaha. The price was great and the features were just what he needed to continue with his lessons.I was looking for weighted keys on a keyboard but the prices were quite expensive. I didn't know if we would like this keyboard because of the touch sensitive keys but it's been great!
      We've had the keyboard for about three weeks now, He loves it! I love the looks of it & the sound.Very happy with this purchase.

      I purchased this unit specifically for the Midi in/out ports. It allows me to plug midi bass pedals in directly, or trigger my Hammond XK 3B lower manual port.

          I write music for film and TV in mostly acoustic styles. This piano is excellent for adding light piano tracks to my upright bass and acoustic guitar music. It also connects to midi for additional instrumentation. Awesome product.

              Great product. Only downside is that the only case for it has to be the Yamaha one because its the perfect size (can't buy a generic case for it because of its irregular size.)

              Piano sound is really good through external speakers or headphones, the built-in speakers are ok for practice but thats about it. Still, for the price you really can't beat this little gem. If are looking for a realistic piano sound on a budget, this just might fit the bill.
