With the Yamaha NP-30 you can take your piano on the road. Any road. Anywhere.

The new 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 are all you need to power up and start playing immediately.

Graded Soft Touch Action - NEW

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 read more 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.

"Features, Weight, and Action unheard of for the price...."

With the features, WEIGHT, action, and of course price this is a GREAT buy.

This is fairly simple keyboard with great piano samples. If you're looking for something basic, and not too expensive this is the keyboard for you. The fact you can layer with other sounds quickly and in the middle of a performance is a big bonus. Grand Piano 1 and 2 layered with strings sound amazing when played through an amp. Built in speakers are acceptable for practice, but not powerful enough for a live performance.

The touch on the keyboard is "graded". While it's not a weighted action it responds as such and is a big upgrade from the syth feel. The keys become easier to press the higher the note, making it feel more like an acoustic piano. Layering of sounds, and the fact you can make one sound an octave higher than the other adds either lower or upper end to playing. A+

Ease of Use
It doesn't get much easier than this. Take it out of the box, plug and play. Very simple use, and easy to modify sounds to set the mood for exactly the type of feel you are looking for. The weight of this keyboard is somewhat unreal. It can be picked up and transported with one hand. Given the action of the keys and the weight this is a great production on the part of Yamaha.

Sleek, slim, and basic. Doesn't feel as cheap as it should for the price, but I wouldn't read more be too reckless with it. Feels pretty solid and like it will last a while as long as it's taken care of.

This is a no-brainer. A digital piano that weighs 12 pounds, has graded touch, great piano samples, and a few very useful features for 300..... A+

Manufacturer Support
Haven't had any problems yet, but my experience with Yamaha in the past has always been positive.

The Wow Factor
Very slender, slim, and light. No contrasting colors or parts that throw off the overall look of the piano. Basic, normal design.
