From the Manufacturer
The Yamaha Piaggero NP-11 is a slim, lightweight and compact piano-style keyboard. It has an exceptionally realistic piano sound thanks to Yamaha’s AWM stereo sampling tone generation technology and has a box-type non-weighted touch sensitive 61 note keyboard.
Operating from 6 AA size batteries or the included mains adaptor, the NP-11 can be easily transported or stored away when not in use. The instrument has built-in speakers and can also be used with headphones.
Piano Style Keyboard
The NP-11 features a 61-key touch-sensitive keyboard with box-type, non-weighted, piano style keys.
The touch sensitivity of the keyboard can be adjusted or even turned off completely which is useful for anyone who cannot press the keys firmly.
Light & Portable
Variety of Sounds
Dual Voice combines two sounds together (e.g. piano and strings) for greater versatility.
MIDI enables the NP-11 to be connected to other MIDI-compatible devices such as other instruments or computers. An optional sustain pedal can also be attached.
The instrument has built-in speakers but can also be used with headphones for private practice.
The NP-11 can be used with an optional sustain pedal such as the Yamaha FC5 or FC4. An optional matching stand is also available, the L2c.

I recently sold a Korg SP250, which by rights is a proper digital piano (in that it has properly weighted keys, is the full width and weighs a tonne). The Yamaha NP-11, which rocks in at £350 cheaper than the Korg impressed on opening!
It lives up to its reputation in many ways. Much like the Korg, the NP-11 has a realistic grand piano voice, which you would expect for a company with such a historical share of the piano market. I wanted something portable but still piano-like for taking to gigs. The NP-11 has piano-style keys, about half weighted but the correct size. I enjoy the weighting of piano keys over, say, a keyboard, but with full-weight keys comes a heavy piano! The NP-11 weighs around 5kg! You can lift it with one finger. Compared to the Korg (which was about 20kg, this is definitely a 'portable' digital piano.
What is great about the NP-11 is despite being comparatively cheap to other electronic pianos, the quality is still there. It sounds great, feels great to play and even looks fancy, even if it is all plastic.
Due to the weighting of the keys the keyboard is suitable for beginners, especially children. Although it is not a full size piano keyboard, there are enough octaves there to play a wealth of songs. Unless your training to be the next Beethoven you should be fine.
Hidden in the keyboards disappointingly vague control panel are a number of additional tweaks that can be performed to the piano to alter its sounds/effects.Read more ›
Well, things have certainly changed since this Yamaha NP11 Piaggero Portable Digital Piano came, fortuitously, into my life last week via Amazon Vine (thank you, very kind). If this is an `entry level' piano keyboard then the top end ones must be outstanding. The NP11 is beautifully made and the technology used to create it is truly 21st Century. The keys feel like they have a real weight to them and the sound is what I imagine a proper piano to sound like.
I want more. I want to be able to do this instrument justice and I will learn to play it properly. I think we're going to have a lot of fun this time.
There are a number of functions which you can alter too - you can transpose the notes of the keyboard to play different songs, you can adjust the sensitivity of the keys - and if you like you can set it to play a fixed tone when you press a key (as opposed to the touch sensitive options) which might be handy for people starting out.
I also bought a midi cable for mine (Xmidi e-mu interface available on amazon) and connected it to my laptop. I'm using a free bit of software called synthesia (like guitar hero for the piano) which so far is good fun. I can't read music so a program like this makes it easy to start to play songs I'd never be able to ordinarily. Also, the program actually delivers sound to the keyboard, and so if you chose to play with one hand (a good way to learn a song) synthesia will play the other. Or, you can just sit back and watch the whole song.
Overall, I think this keyboard is a great purchase, and well worth the money. I did a lot of research before buying this and I don't think there's anything better out there for this price for people who want a more piano-like experience.
Had I a bit more cash spare, and a bit more space I probably would have opted for the slightly larger version of this keyboard - the 79 key NP-31 but I love the portability and size of the NP-11, and being a student living in a shared house size was important. This fits perfectly in my bedroom which is brilliant. I think my housemates will appreciate the headphones I bought too!
The keyboard itself is very light and compact, and doesn't take up too much space. It is very easy to operate, especially if you are not too fussed about anything other than a standard piano sound (which I find fairly good). The volume wheel is quite sensitive, so it's easy to get the volume you are after. With only having 61 keys I would imagine it wouldn't be too daunting for someone beginning the piano to get to grips with, but it still offers enough scope to not be too limited for anyone with more advanced skills (especially considering the touch response settings and the option of being able to plug in a sustain pedal).
Some slight negatives I have found are that the keys are very noisy when pressed - so much so that it can sometimes be quite difficult to hear the notes being played over the noise of the keys when the volume is turned down (although using headphones blocks the noise out quite well). I also find that when playing two or more notes together it can be quite difficult to hear all the individual notes being played (although this could quite possibly just be my playing)! Although there are several different touch response settings you can select (fixed, soft, medium and hard) I don't find a great deal of difference between them.Read more ›

This model is now discontinued. Good piano sound, very light. But the keys are not weighted which spoils the whole experience. The later model, NP12 has no midi In or midi out.Published 4 months ago by Alan
