Gearank Recommendation

The Piaggero NP-32 appeared on our recommended list for Portable Keyboards from April 2021 until July 2022 when it had been out-ranked by other models.

Overview

The NP-32 is part of Yamaha’s Piaggero line of portable digital piano keyboards, with a wider 76-key full size keybed, and Graded Soft Touch (semi-weighted) keys.

It is essentially a wider and upgraded version of its smaller sibling, the Piaggero NP-12, with keys that feel closer to a digital piano, while retaining a reasonably portable profile.

It features Yamaha’s Advanced Wave Memory Stereo Sampling which means improved voices, all of which are sampled from existing instruments. The piano voicings in particular are sampled from Yamaha’s expensive acoustic pianos.

As a complement to its portable profile, the NP-32 can run on six AA alkaline batteries for up to 7 hours. Other features include 64-note polyphony, four reverbs, built-in recording and playback.

While many are pleased with its 76-key configuration, the overall length is quite wide and can be awkward to carry around.

If you’re looking for an affordable 76-key instrument with good piano sounds that you can carry around, then definitely check out the Yamaha Piaggero NP-32.
