The ever popular Yamaha NP12 Keyboard has now been upgraded to the new and improved NP12 model! You will find that this instrument now features an even better playability as well as more versatile features that will be suited to the needs of piano/keyboard players of all levels. What hasn't changed, however, is the distinctively great sound, portability and compact sound of the Piaggero Series.
Whether you are looking for your first ever instrument or a portable solution that you can play virtually anywhere, the Yamaha Piaggero NP12 will offer you superb sound quality from the get go. It features high quality samples of grand pianos as well as electric pianos, organs, strings, vibes and even harpsichord giving you the freedom to experiment with the sounds and match them with your preferred genre. You can mix and match these voices with Layer/Split functions and add depth to your sound via 4 types of hall reverbs for unprecedented richness. The enjoyable, pure tone of this instrument is complemented by a 61 note, piano-style keyboard that features touch response, giving you broad range of dynamics, perfect for every piece of music.
One of the new upgrades you will see in the Yamaha NP12 Keyboard is the type B USB connection. This allows you to connect your Piaggero instrument to your computer for MIDI communication for music production or link to your iOS device. Yamaha offer an array of apps that are free to download for your iPad or iPhone including My Music Recorder, Visual Performer and many more that will let you really make the most of your keyboard.
The most prominent feature in all of the Yamaha Piaggero series keyboards is their compact design combined with maximum functionality. The NP12 weighs only a mere 4.5 kg, making it ideal for taking it on the road with you or storing it away easily. A power adaptor is included, but it also runs on batteries making it possible for you to play wherever you are! The Record/Playback function will allow you to quickly record your practice and check your progress or capture your ideas, and there's even a headphone jack for silent practice and sustain pedal connection. The piano-style keyboard, versatile connectivity and lightweight, compact design of this instrument along with a fantastic sound is exactly what makes the NP12 so popular with musicians of all levels.
