The NP15 has an authentic piano sound with box style touch sensitivity keys that make it easier for novice pianists to start. Compared to its predecessor, the NP15 features an even better playability as well as more versatile features that will suit the needs of piano/keyboard players of all levels. What hasn't changed, however, is the distinctively great sound, portability and compact design of the Piaggero Series.
Lightweight, Portable Design - Take it Anywhere!
The most prominent feature in all of the Yamaha Piaggero series keyboards is their compact design combined with maximum functionality. "Piaggero," the name of the NP-Series, combines "Piano" with the word "leggero," a musical term meaning, "light." As the name states, the NP15 is extremely light, weighing only 5.2 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!
Powerful, Resonant Sound
Yamaha’s acoustic technology furnishes the Piaggero’s powerful sound - a sound that belies its compact size, featuring resonant grand piano-style bass notes and beautifully detailed treble tones. The Piaggero features the sound of a Yamaha full concert grand, the CFIIIS. The sound was sampled from a piano with a bright, transparent tone, a spacious treble, and an overall solid sonic feel.
Makes Piano Playing Fun
The Piaggero’s light keyboard feel lets you experience the joy of playing a keyboard. Even with its softer touch, the Piaggero’s sound changes realistically in response to the force of your keystrokes, enabling you to enjoy expressiveness approaching that of an acoustic piano.
Minimalist Design Makes Playing Easy
The NP15 is an instrument for people who love the piano. Its modern design features aspects that are reminiscent of an acoustic piano and focuses on only the most practical functions, making it eminently usable and allowing people who are not used to digital instruments the ability to operate it intuitively. 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.
Range of Connectivity Options
The USB B connection allows you to connect your Piaggero instrument to your computer for MIDI communication for music production or link to your iOS device. Connect the instrument to Yamaha’s "Smart Pianist" app, developed exclusively for use with Yamaha’s digital pianos, for even more intuitive operation. If you want to take a video of your performance and share it on platforms like YouTube, TikTok and so on, Rec'n'Share is the way to go. Connect the Piaggero to your smart device and record both video and audio at the same time to complete your video.Features/Specification:
