Piaggero provides go-anywhere portability and style while also delivering the authentic feel of an acoustic piano and Yamaha’s legendary sound quality. For the serious pursuit of a new pastime or the leisurely recapture of an old one, Piaggero offers easy-going piano fun.
To recreate the playability of an acoustic piano, the Piaggero range features Yamaha’s own Graded Soft Touch keyboard, giving keys in the lower octave a heavier touch than those in the upper octaves. While this scaled level of resistance is graded for a piano-like response, the keys themselves are not weighted for the sake of portability. This means the NP-V60 weighs only 6.3kg but still provides a touch that all pianists can appreciate.
Along with superb grand piano sound, the Piaggero range features a number of popular instrument voices, such as organ, strings, and guitar all recorded using Yamaha’s AWM (Advanced Wave Memory) stereo sampling technology for amazingly true-to-life sound. And for a complete orchestra of sonic options, there are XGlite voices and drum/SFX kits. This ensures compatibility with the wealth of Standard-MIDI and XG song files available today.
Piaggero NP-V60 boasts 160 preset styles – from the basic rock and jazz beats to contemporary electronic rhythms – that follow and backup the performer with dynamically responsive accompaniment. Every style is essentially a backup band of virtual virtuosos ready to follow your lead. Piaggero styles all feature custom intros, variations, and endings giving you total control over your arrangement. Go ahead and play a couple of extra verses at the end of your performance… Piaggero can handle it.
