Yamaha NP30 76-Key Portable Grand Piano Review
The Yamaha NP30 Portable Grand is an easy-to-carry piano that features Advanced Wave Memory stereo sampled piano sounds for incredible sound quality. An entirely new take on the digital piano, offering quality, value, and portability with a lighter touch.
This is exactly what digital piano reviews are looking for! It is a very portable PIANO and is not like a keyboard with all the buttons and rhythms, but it is very much like a real piano that you can carry around with you. The keys have a great touch that feels very good under your fingers and they play just like a real piano, louder if you hit them harder and softer if you press them softly.
The two grand pianos and two harpsichords sound are so real. The 76 keys are enough to play almost any song and it sounds lovely. This would be perfect to take to wedding receptions, graduations, birthday parties or anywhere someone wanted piano music and did not have a real piano.
There are some of the great features of the Yamaha NP30 portable grand piano:
- 76-key Digital Piano with Graded Soft Touch Action,
- Runs on batteries or optional PA-5D or PA-150 AC power adapter (not included)
- Touch Sensitive, 10 Demo Songs, 10 Voices, 10 Built-in Songs, and Metronome
- Sustain Jack for the optional pedal MIDI in and out terminals
Digital piano reviews have not seen anything on the market that comes close to the sound quality and piano feel of the Yamaha NP30, especially for the price. If you want a high-quality instrument that rather closely emulates an acoustic piano, this is definitely what you need. There are enough electronic features and effects to keep younger techie-types happy.
I have quoted a comment from happy customer:
This Yamaha Piano is the best piano. Sleek, slim, and basic. Doesn’t feel as cheap as it should for the price, but I wouldn’t be too reckless with it. Feels solid and like it will last a while as long as it’s taken care of.[stoneroy22] Click here to see original by review paraphrased for size!
This is quite possibly the lightest 76-key keyboard digital piano reviews have encountered. Its super slim design and minimal weight of 12 pounds makes it the most compact performer in the digital piano family of instruments, it is great for travel and easy to store. It is also one of the few electric pianos I have seen that can be powered by AA batteries.
The Yamaha’s exclusive format is Advanced Wave Memory for reproducing sounds digitally as well as two microphones to record the piano you hear on every key of the NP30 adding even more realism to the sound you hear.
If you are looking for something basic, not too expensive and portable, then Digital piano reviews recommend this Yamaha NP30 for you. The fact you can layer with other sounds quickly and in the middle of a performance is a big bonus.
