OVERVIEW

Quality piano sounds and great touch in a sleek, lightweight, and affordable keyboard.

The NP-30 Portable Grand delivers Yamaha digital piano sound and simplicity in a new lightweight, compact design like nothing else you've seen... all at a price point you won't believe. Its super slim design and minimal weight of 12 pounds makes it the most compact performer in the digital piano family of instruments. And 6 "AA" batteries (not included) are all you need to power up and start playing immediately.

Graded Soft Touch Action
Because of its similarity to acoustic pianos, a graded action is one of the primary features sought by pianists in their digital instruments. While technically a non-weighted action, the new Graded Soft-Touch keyboard is the first of its kind bringing different levels of resistance without the extra weight of moving hammers the key contributor to the NP-30's fighting weight of only 12 pounds. The end result is a very playable action that will appeal to pianists who want to take their music anywhere.

AWM Stereo Piano Samples
Advanced Wave Memory is Yamaha's exclusive format for reproducing sounds digitally. And stereo means that Yamaha used two microphones to record the piano you hear on every key of the NP-30 adding even more realism to the sound you hear.

Built-in Metronome
Every pianist knows that practice makes perfect. And one tool they've all used to keep time when practicing is the metronome. The NP-30 has a built-in metronome and even has multiple time signatures (3/4, 4/4, 6/8) to choose from. Plus the numeric key function lets you set the tempo to the exact marking you need.

Dual Voice Mode
Choose any two Voices you'd like to combine and play them both at once. Dual Voice mode makes this easier than ever. Simply hold down the Voice Select button and select the two you'd like to hear for a variety of combinations.

Powered by 6 "AA" size batteries (not included) or optional PA-150 power supply (#330238)

An Excellent Substitute for a Grand Piano

The Yamaha NP30 is a great Digital Piano for anyone that needs access to a Grand Piano but can't afford an actual Grand Piano. This Digital Piano is a great introduction for Piano Students that need to learn the ropes on a budget, both children and adults alike. Even though the Action of the keys are sensitive for a portable unit, the keys on an actual Grand Piano require a little bit more push to get the notes out. If you have a child that is taking piano lessons or if you are taking lessons yourself and you need access to a Grand Piano without having to buy an actual piano that takes up a massive amount of space, this is the right product for you.
The "action" of the keys on this Digital Piano are phenomenal for such a low priced unit. There are several different settings for the action that you can set yourself, from soft action, medium action, hard action, or you can even disable the action all together. There are MIDI outputs on the back of the piano, so if you have computer software that accepts MIDI sounds like a synthesizer or drums, then you can use this piano to play whatever sounds you have on your computer software, and the action of the keyboard is recognized by the software. I hardly ever use the other instruments on the piano like the Harpsichord or Organ, but they're there and they sound like their respected instruments. Unless you have rechargable batteries, I suggest investing in the optional Power Adapter so you can save tons of money on batteries. The Expression Pedal is a must if you plan on using this as a replacement for a Grand Piano. If the stereo speakers aren't loud enough for you, you can use an instrument cable and hook the piano into a PA system to further extend the sound. Headphones are also an option if you happen to bother people or want to tune everything out.
This is a very sturdy Digital Piano. It's nice and thin, very lightweight, fits nicely in the corner, and stays out of the way. My only problem I've had with this in the year I've had it is that the expression stopped working after the piano took a nose dive into the floor while I was moving the room around. I know it goes without saying, but don't drop it or let if fall on the ground from a great distance, or else you'll have to get it repaired.
This piano has amazing sound and quality for being digital, but it would be worth a lot more if it came with the power supply, expression pedal, or a simple piano stand bundled in the box. If you're looking to add the Grand Piano experience to your home while choosing this unit, you'll have to add on a little more if you want the pedal, power, and stand. But don't let that stop you from making the purchase, even at the price (for the piano and for the add-ons) this is still a bargain for a decent Piano so you can play, learn, teach, or perform.

I was excited when I saw the description of this new product. Professional keyboard players are desparate for a light-weight, portable keyboard with a good action that has 76 keys (or even 61) rather than 88. For some reason, none of the keyboard designers understand that many people want full-size keys and a fully weighted action, but do not need 88-keys. There is virtually no style of music that is played on an electonic keyboard that requires 88 keys.That's why this keyboard was such a huge disappointment. The supposed "Graded Action" feels not a bit different than a synth action keyboard -- no resistance at all, and no room for nuance or touch control. Plus, the keys are not full-size -- they are shorter than normal keys.WHEN WHEN WHEN will Yamaha, Roland, Casio or any other company come out with a portable 61-note and 76-note keyboard with full-size keys and a fully-weighted action? I would gladly pay the same price as an 88-key model.The best option these days is still the Casio Privia series -- they're 88-keys, but remarkablly light-weight with good actions. But even Casio is messing up a good thing. The first one I bought had more built-in sounds with assigned push buttons than any of the models available now.

Could have been much better

By Oakeyboy

from Utah

Comments about Yamaha NP30 76-Key Mid-Level Piaggero Ultra-Portable Digital Piano:

Yamaha markets this keyboard for its great portability, but they could have done much better. First, this keyboard measures in at 49" x 10-1/4" x 4", which exceeds the 62" max length + width + height requirement for most airline checked-in luggage. So if you want to travel with this keyboard plan to pay extra. Had they simply located the speakers behind the keys, instead of at each end, they could have shortened the keyboard by about 7", bringing it within luggage size requirements. Another frustration is the keys themselves. They aren't full size. They're a little short. The touch feels springy, like a cheap keyboard from Walmart. Full-size, weighted action keys would have been so much better. Another 10 or 12 lbs wouldn't have limited the portability of the keyboard. The sound quality is poor, as expected for the size of speakers included, but it wouldn't be realistic to expect better for a portable keyboard. Once it's hooked up to a set of good monitors it sounds great.

Perfect Digital Piano (What you need to know)

By Mohamed Ali

from Columbus, OH

Comments about Yamaha NP30 76-Key Mid-Level Piaggero Ultra-Portable Digital Piano:

Everything about this digital piano is perfect but what you need to know is:- Just a perfect Piano with 76 keys that are graded soft touch for you to learn/practice playing on with a very nice and useful metronome with demo songs at a killer price/weight (6 KG).- I love it, really.- No power supply!- weak speakers. using headphones or getting an amp is highly advised.- The only audio output is the phones out plug (1/4 TRS). No audio out Rt and Lt.- Has MIDI in and out unlike the more expensive Casio Previa PX103 that only has USB.- Doesn't have USB interface.- Not 88 keys. Only 76.- Not full size keys, slightly smaller like a typical keyboard.- Not fully weighted/hammered keys but they are soft touch graded meaning that they are slightly heavier as you go left. No dramatic difference when compared with regular keyboards but I can sense/appreciate the difference but when you get up from a real piano and use it you won't feel that and it would feel like a toy!- This just a Piano to learn/practice on. No display, No recording, no bells and whistles, no 500 sounds, no beats. I really enjoy playing on it.

Outstanding piano sound

By texasfrank

from Austin, TX

See all my reviews

Comments about Yamaha NP30 76-Key Mid-Level Piaggero Ultra-Portable Digital Piano:

The Yamaha NP-30 is really an interesting product with outstanding sound quality and a great synth action feel. If you want a digital display, rhythms and 600 voices this isn't the product for you. This really is a piano with a few other voices. It does have a few features that you can learn about if you download the manual from Yamaha. I was impressed at how small this product is but still has full sized keys. The most important thing of course is the grand piano sound and it is excellent. Even the built in small speakers sound quite good. Because they are on the left and right of the keys and not behind the keys like most portables you really get a rich stereo sound that has a sense of direction from which end of the keyboard is being played.

Great practice piano

By Simajanpa

from Saunderstown, RI

Comments about Yamaha NP30 76-Key Mid-Level Piaggero Ultra-Portable Digital Piano:

I bought this as a "campfire" keyboard. No, not to burn it, to play it around with my guitar playing friends. I also own a Yamaha Motif XS, a Korg Triton Extreme, a Roland Fantom XR and VK8m.And I have to say other than the lack of polyphonyon the NP-30, the piano sound is right up there with the much more expensive pieces. I don't care about "piano" action because I'm just an old Hammond player from the 60s, and never got used to playing piano action keyboards. Anyway, for the price point and intended demographic, it's a great little keyboard.

Great sound... totally portable

By Randolph

from Roanoke

Comments about Yamaha NP30 76-Key Mid-Level Piaggero Ultra-Portable Digital Piano:

The only other keyboard I've ever bought in my life was a Yamaha DX synth bought in 1986. 22 years later this is still in perfect working order, so when I recently decided to buy a piano-style keyboard it was natural to look at Yamaha.Despite reading some mixed reviews I decided to try the NP 30. It's hard to believe how light this is. I took it to a gig last night and getting it in and out of the van, getting set up, etc was amazingly easy. Sounds only fair through the built in speakers but when I put headphones on, I was in heaven. The grand piano 1, organ 1 and 2 and harpsichord voices are convincing; have not really tried out the other voices yet. If you want weighted keys this is not the keyboard for you; I have a light touch and don't mind the synth-type action.I didn't even have to buy a power supply and sustain pedal since my 22-year old power supply and sustain from my DX synth work perfectly with this new Yamaha. All in all, for the money I am totally pleased.

NP-30 Rocks!

By Jeni M

from Atlanta

Comments about Yamaha NP30 76-Key Mid-Level Piaggero Ultra-Portable Digital Piano:

I'm a busy pro musician and I picked this little gem up on a lark. Wow, it's so light/cheap...amazing! I've learned that the lighter a keyboard is, the more likely I'm gonna use it :-). I own a Fatar (controller), an old Yamaha PF-80, a Yamaha S-80, a Yamaha P-80 and a Casio Privia---This is the one I reach for most frequently. The action is also interesting as it responds like a piano. It took a little adjusting to master the slippery keyboard action-(I'm used to playing hard and fast)--but I love it now!

Not bad

By Holden-kCrzK

from Minnesota

Comments about Yamaha NP30 76-Key Mid-Level Piaggero Ultra-Portable Digital Piano:

The sound on this keyboard isn't bad, but there are a few major flaws. The piano sound is a little tinny, but passable. The rest of the voices sound pretty bad, with maybe the exception of the 2nd E-Piano voice. On the really low notes on the grand piano setting, you can hardly hear it, even when you mash the keys with the volume turned all the way up. The keys on this keyboard aren't too bad; they have an okay action and aren't mushy like you sometimes see in non-weighted keyboards. However, they still feel like cheap, hollow pieces of plastic. It would have been so much better if Yamaha had just weighted the keys.Overall, it's not a bad beginner/starter piano, but there are better pianos at pretty comparable prices.
