New Light, Portable Piano-Style Keyboards From Yamaha. NP15 & NP35.

Yamaha NP-35 and NP-15

Yamaha has added two new models to the Piagerro range. The 61-key NP-15 and 76-Key NP-35.

The 61-key (NP-15) and 76-key keyboards (NP-35) allow you to perform piano pieces with greater authenticity, without requiring much space. Although the keys have the same box shape as those on a piano, the keyboard has a lighter feel that makes it easy for novice pianists to start, rather than the weightier feel of a standard piano keyboard. You can also use headphones with the Piaggero if you are worried about disturbing those around you with your playing.

“Piaggero,” the name of the NP-Series, combines “Piano” with the word “leggero,” a musical term meaning, “light.” As the name states, the NP-35 and NP-15 are extremely light, even for a portable keyboard, so you can take them anywhere. Indoors, outdoors, or even on a trip, feel free to take it to your favourite places and practice.

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. The NP-35 is equipped with a larger amplifier than the NP-15, for a more robust bass and greater overall volume.


Connect the instrument to Yamaha’s “Smart Pianist” app, developed exclusively for use with Yamaha’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.

Record Sound & Video

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.
