Slim, Light & Compact
In both design and playability, Yamaha's Piaggero range embodies combination of "piano" and "leggero" - Italian for "light" - that constitutes its name.
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.

Touch of Class
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.
Perform with Style
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.
Piaggero Takes Requests
At the touch of a button, the Piaggero's Music Database offers pre-set combinations of styles, voices, effects and tempos based on the song you’d like to perform. Music Database is not a jukebox or playback device… it’s a feature that you use to quickly set up the Piaggero so you can play your favourite songs. As new songs become popular, Piaggero’s Music Database stays with the times because additional titles can be downloaded from the Internet on your PC and transferred via USB. It’s the never-ending set list.
