An Amazing On-the-go Digital Piano!The Yamaha NP-31 Portable Grand delivers Yamaha digital piano sound and simplicity in a lightweight and super compact design. If you're looking for an excellent-sounding portable piano at a great price, the NP-31 is perfect for you. Its super-slim and ultra-light-weight design makes it easy to take your NP-31 from gig to gig, and six AA batteries are all you need to power up and start playing the NP-31 immediately. When it comes to grand piano sound, Yamaha's AWM stereo piano sound is still one of the most popular piano sounds on earth. Plus, the NP-31 comes with nine other great sounds, all accessible from its handy voice select panel buttons.
Yamaha NP-31 Digital Piano at a Glance:
Graded Soft Touch Action
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 NP-31's 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-31'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-31 adding even more realism to the sound you hear.
Every pianist knows that practice makes perfect. And one tool they've all used to keep time when practicing is the metronome. The NP-31 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 you set the tempo to the exact marking you need.
Dual Voice Mode
With the NP-31, you can 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.

Know What Your Needs Are
by Weston from Bennington, VTThis is a very decent keyboard for the price. Graded Soft Touch Action isn't even close to the feel of true weighted keys, but is far more playable than unweighted or "lightly" weighted keyboards als... read more [+]o sold by Yamaha.

I appreciate the simplicity, light weight, and professional red trim. For quiet venues like tea parties or for playing with a group of close friends, this keyboard fits very nicely and is easy to carry around. Battery operation is a huge plus for playing in places without an outlet.
If you're looking for a keyboard to practice chords with or to take with you to small social gatherings, I definitely recommend this. If you're looking for an acoustic piano replacement try the Korg SP250, with weighted keys. close [-]
Pretty Good Compromise
by Elisa Welch from San FranciscoI needed to replace a very cheap lightweight keyboard (Yamaha ESR-P223) on which a middle-range oft-used key had failed after three years of heavy use (40 or 50 gigs last year). My main need was for a... read more [+] portable keyboard for outdoor gigs where no AC is available, hence a self-contained battery-opp model was called for. I also wanted something light enough to carry on public transit. No, I'm not kidding.

The NP-31 isn't too heavy (just under 13 lbs, according to the spec sheet), but it's heavier than I was anticipating, and because it's longer than what I was accustomed to (76 keys vs 61), it can be a bit unwieldly on the bus. My bandmates say the built-in speakers sound good to them, but they seem a bit tinny to my ear. Also, if it's turned up to near-full volume (which is necessary at these unplugged gigs) the thing eats a fresh set of batteries (6 AAs) in less than 4 hours, although the specs say the batteries should last up to 6. The action is good, allowing for much more expressive playing than the lighter organ-style keys on my previous model.
A digitial display would be nice: something to indicate which voice/sound you've selected, whether you've transposed and how far, metronome speed, and other useful data. As designed, you have to remember all of these things.
I spent almost $100 more than I was hoping to, but I did get a superior instrument to the portable one I was replacing. The NP-31 is also a good alternative to my other stage piano, a very heavy, bulky Ensonic KS-32 weighted-action model I may not be taking out much at all anymore. close [-]
