"Piaggero," the name of the NP-15 Series, combines "Piano" with the word "leggero," a musical term meaning, "light." As the name states, the NP-15 is extremely light, even for a portable keyboard, so that you can take it anywhere. Indoors, outdoors, or even on a trip, feel free to take it to your favorite places and practice.
Yamahaâ€™s acoustic technology furnishes the Piaggeroâ€™s powerful soundâ€”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.
The Piaggero is an instrument for people who love the piano. Its modern design features aspects that are reminiscent of a piano and focuses on only the most practical functions, making it eminently usable and allowing even people who are not used to digital instruments to operate it intuitively.
Maybe you want to learn how to play the piano, but the keys feel so heavy you think your fingers will tire out; or maybe you think your fingers arenâ€™t strong enough to achieve sufficiently strong fortes. It would be a shame to let such trivial concerns discourage you from playing the piano. The Piaggeroâ€™s light keyboard feel lets you experience the joy of playing a keyboard.
Even with its softer touch, the Piaggeroâ€™s sound changes realistically in response to the force of your keystrokes, enabling you to enjoy expressiveness approaching that of an acoustic piano.
Connect the instrument to Yamahaâ€™s â€œSmart Pianistâ€ app, developed exclusively for use with Yamahaâ€™s digital pianos, for even more intuitive operation than when operating the instrument itself.
In addition to operating the instrument itself, Smart Pianist can also display music scores.
*You can also use the UD-BT01 (sold separately) to connect to apps via Bluetooth MIDI.
