Ultra-portable, intermediate-level digital piano with Yamaha's acclaimed stereo-sampled grand piano sound and Graded Soft Touch Action keyboard.
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 designâ??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 scaleâ??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.
Battery Power or AC adaptor
The NP11 can be used with an AC adaptor [PA-150 (see #330238) not included] or alkaline batteries (not included) for up to 6-hours. Battery-power is the key to the Piaggero's portability.
Auto Power Off mode
This is a new, eco-friendly mode. The NP31 comes with a function that turns off the power automatically if the keyboard has not been used for a set amount of time (30 minutes) in order to avoid using power unnecessarily. This supports long battery life.
Easy access panel
The NP31 features dedicated buttons for each voice on the top panel.
