Overview

The Yamaha NP11 is a 61-key digital piano that takes Piaggero's signature concept of slim, light, and compact to a new level. It features high-quality voices that sound more realistic than ever before, and a wide variety of simple, user-friendly functions. With Yamaha's renowned digital expertise and quality craftsmanship, the NP11 was designed and built with the beginner in mind. Its inspiring expressive sound, touch-sensite keys, and easy portability (thanks to a mere 11 lb. weight and battery power) make it the perfect practice instrument that you can take with you anywhere you go. Try that with a 9-foot Steinway.

Slim, light, and compact design
Walk in, carrying the NP11 with one hand, and play anywhere thanks to the new slim, light and compact design-it's that easy.

Piano-style keyboard
The NP11 has a 61-key piano-style keyboard with touch sensitivity. The lighter feel of the keys and dynamic expression provided by velocity-sensing keys makes it easier for beginning students to overcome the physical difficulties of learning piano 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 NP11 uses a highly efficient stereo amplifier that generates a solid sound that's unexpected in such a slim, light, and compact digital piano. With 2.5 watts per channel, the Piaggero NP 11 is ready to go, whenever you are.

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

Battery power or AC adaptor
The NP11 can be used with an AC adaptor [PA-130 (see #336005) not included] or alkaline batteries (not included) for up to 6-hours and more. Battery-power is the key to the Piaggero's portability.

Auto Power Off mode
This is a new, eco-friendly mode. The NP11 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 enables longer battery life.

Note: This keyboard does not ship with batteries or a power supply. We enthusiastically recommend the Yamaha SK-B2 Survival Kit, which contains the appropriate power supply for your keyboard, as well as a set of headphones, a footswitch, an extended warranty, rebate coupons and helpful software. #H65815

This is the piano for me.

I was in despair since getting even an upright into this apartment looked hopeless, and the quality I had come to expect from keyboards was pretty trashy. This is true piano sound. Frankly, I could care less about extended midi instruments. I have software that purportedly would take care of that if I were interested.

The last time I heard a piano sound this good was New Years Eve 1961 in Kalamazoo -- and that was an upright grand.

If you live where you hear the neighbors every move, you will find earphones keep them from hearing you. Either get the kind with a 1/4" plug or get an adapter for less than two bucks somewhere.
I haven't explored the digital transformations. Maybe eventually. I am pleased that a proper set of piano pedal equivalents can be added.

Incidentally, read the directions and turn off the power saving mode or your activities will be rudely interrupted.

The keys respond to playing with perfect variations in volume.
The additional features cannot matter as much as the quality of the core music on the most basic settings. This sounds like the upright grand I played as a child, and if that's more credible, just like my music teacher's piano.

The keys feel right too. Over the entire range, the tone and voice are perfect copies of a very good piano.

The thing is obviously sturdy, but light enough that I could lift it to the table where I use it. The holder for sheet music is not terribly attractive but does its job.
I've shopped for a piano equivalent off and on for years. Most of the versions I have sampled in stores cost much more, but worse, did not sound at all like a piano. The volume is not suppressed although you can use earphones to create room silence.

I bought this unit and returned it the next day. My goal was to buy a small low-cost keyboard that I could carry easily to jams without breaking the bank. After trying it out in my local GC I thought I found what I needed, but it didn't take long to realize a made a mistake. It is advertised as "touch sensitive" which it is, but it is not truly velocity sensitive and the terrible feel of the keys, lacking weighted action, limits the value of the touch sensitivity. If you are currently playing on a weighted or semi-weighted keyboard with accurate key size and feel, you will HATE this board. The piano sound is pretty good, and the electric piano setting is interesting (but not an accurate Fender Rhodes or Wurlitzer type sound. 61 keys is really not enough once you start playing a lot of songs you know. Maybe I'm spoiled from almost always using 88-key units. If you are just looking for something low cost for a beginner, this might be a good choice. It has the built in amp and speakers which provide an okay sound. The unit is also very compact and lightweight so it is very flexible if you have limited space. However, I would not recommend this unit if you are even a quasi-serious musician.

    Comments about Yamaha NP11 61-Key Piaggero Digital Piano:

    I've gotten back into recording music with my iPad and have a Griffin StudioConnect which require MIDI hookups but it keeps the iPad CHARGED and it was reduced to only $16.00 but it does the hookups for the recordings I want to do and is perfect to use with this keyboard. I also have an older Kawai Digital Piano I use the Griffin with. We got this Yamaha Keyboard for me to use in our motor home. It sounds really nice and the touch on the keys is among the best I've tried on a keyboard in this price range. As I use the iPad for recording, I don't need to record into the device the keyboard. I love it.

      Comments about Yamaha NP11 61-Key Piaggero Digital Piano:

      It's stressed numerous times that this keyboard does NOT come with the power adaptor--which prompts one to purchase the SK B2 for it. Both keyboards I purchased had the power adaptor included--so I didn't really need to spend extra for the SK B2. It's okay to have the extra headphones and sustain pedal, but they DEFINITELY came with a power adaptor!

        I am a drummer, but my parents and son are piano and organ performers. I purchased this product for my son. He is 14 years old. He is appreciating all it's options, sounds and feel. My father tested it and found its feel good and sound very good. Has 2 MIDI ports. This is quite useful for recording and composition using finale.

          Comments about Yamaha NP11 61-Key Piaggero Digital Piano:

          I felt I wanted try something new like a solid digital piano after playing just guitar for decades. Chosen because of its clean look, and ambient acoustical piano sound. It's got several voicings. And a adjustable metronome which could be louder, than maxed. Most of the perimeter tweaking is by holding down a button while using the note keys demonstrated by the instruction manual. I requested the survival kit for convenient accessibility to the exact power cable. The tiny lil dampen/sustain pedal in the survival kit ceased working after 2 days of playing- plastic. However mf sells real dampen/susain pedal gear...

              Comments about Yamaha NP11 61-Key Piaggero Digital Piano:

              I spent a while looking for a light weight piano upon which I could practice some classical pieces. This nearly fits the bill, but not quite. Mozart, Haydn and even early Beethoven used a five octave keyboard, but it stretched from F-f''', not C-c'''. So it's no good for playing their music. It's the compass of a Hammond organ, so you can play that sort of stuff, but it's no good for practicing classical music.

              I bought this for gigs with limited stage room width. I use a synth on the top tier for other sounds but needed a good Piano sound on a 61 Key wide board. Roll the mids back a little and it is great for Piano on the bottom tier. I have an 88 Key Yamaha for Piano but whenever I get a gig with a small stage I get this one out. Price is right, sound is good, touch is not too bad. I really like it. A while back our Bass Player was off and we hired a Keyboard Player and I played Bass. He liked it better that my 88 Key!!

              Comments about Yamaha NP11 61-Key Piaggero Digital Piano:

              I've been playing the piano since 1973, and I wish this type of keyboard existed 20 years ago. Sometimes all we need is a quality piano sound without all the other useless sounds that come with a typical electronic keyboard. I mean seriously, who needs a sitar sound unless you're playing in India somewhere? To me, the piano sound on this instrument is good enough to use on a gig. It also doesn't look like a toy, so you won't be embarrassed and get laughed at when you take it out in front of people. In essence, this is a mini digital piano. It has all the same sounds, and same quality of sounds as an 88 key digital piano. Sounds can also be combined. The organ sounds are useless, but who cares. I use this as a portable practice piano anyway. Of course, for this price, you're not going to get the hammer action feel of a real piano, but the waterfall keys make playing this just a little more piano-like than playing a regular low end electronic keyboard. It's very light and small, thus making it very easy to carry. To my pleasant surprise, it runs on 6AA batteries as opposed to 6 heavy Ds. You'd be surprised at how much weight D batteries can add to a keyboard. I also like that it's touch sensitive. The only thing I don't like about it is that the speakers are on the sides, thus making it a little longer than your standard electronic keyboard. It still fits inside a soft case, but will stretch the sides out a little bit. I understand some models only have a 1/8th inch output, but thankfully the one I bought (July 2014) has a 1/4 inch output so I can hook it up to an amp if I want to, or to ear buds with an adapter. For the price, this is a good little instrument. I use it as my second portable keyboard, and take it with me in the car so I can have a keyboard with me wherever I go. You wouldn't want to risk carry around a $1,000 keyboard in your trunk for obvious reasons, but if you lose something like this, it's no biggie.

                Comments about Yamaha NP11 61-Key Piaggero Digital Piano:

                Wow! Occasionally, I come across music gear that makes me smile every time I use it. This Yamaha Piaggero is one of those rare finds. After returning two other keyboards, I bought this 61-key wonder. If you're looking for a portable with a realistic piano sound and feel, go no further.

                I needed a small piano for MIDI data entry with my composition software. Having something on my desk for daily practice was an added bonus. I didn't need one of the mass-market toys with all the controls of a space craft. Also, I tried a couple of great MIDI keyboards, but neither had the weighted action of a piano and they required booting my computer, loading software, and doing a few programming steps just to make music... not my idea of convenient. Sometimes, less really is more.

                At just a few pounds, the Piagerro is super light. The AA batteries work fine, but I bought the optional and inexpensive AC power supply for daily use. The MIDI in/out couldn't be simpler for notation entry and it's exactly what I needed. For performance, it has the typical 1/4" out to your amp. This is basically a portable piano, but it has a few sound profiles, like electric piano and church organ -- enough to keep the young pseudo-techies happy. The grand piano simulation is quite realistic and the weighted key action is amazing for something this inexpensive. Yup, Yamaha does it again. Highly recommended!
