Yamaha NP-12 Reviews

It serves its purpose.

As I already have an 88 key Roland FP-30X, which I absolutely love, I bought this as a portable practice keyboard to take outside when the weather permits. Having paid what I did for the NP-12, I wasn't surprised at the marginally satisfying sound that came out of its speakers. That said, when I plugged in a pair of rather inexpensive Sony headphones, my satisfaction level went way up, as I was very surprised how the sound quality improved. So, if you do buy this particular keyboard, give serious thought to using it with headphones.

A great little piano

This little Yamaha piano is great. Great tone, light weight, runs on AA batteries or optional power adapter. Semi-weighted keys feel a lot better than cheaper units. Only 61 keys, but more than adequate for learning to play. Built-in metronome, 10 voices, built in recorder so you can review your playing.

I am a beginner trying to teach myself through online lessons the keyboard/piano so wanted a smaller more basic keyboard to start with. I did a lot of research and decided on the Yamaha NP12 and am glad I did. It is geared more toward the piano and a!though it only has 61 keys is able to give me everything I need at this point. B&H Photo was one of the very few places that had it in stock at a competitive price. My new keyboard arrived in good condition in just a few days. I'm very happy with my purchase!

Overall Great...

Overall great beginner's or practice keyboard. I purchased this board because the one I had (Yamaha S03) is almost 20 years. Several keys on the S03 don't work anymore (they play when they wanna or don't at all). I had the Np12 for a few days now it's taking me a min. to get used to the limited sounds but overall it's great for the price. Will be using the Np12 for mainly practice or maybe some engagements until I'm able to invest in my dream board.

I am in love with this keyboard

Purchased to fulfill a lifelong dream of learning to play piano. (The lockdown was good for something!) Obviously I'm no keyboard expert or an accomplished pianist, so keep that in mind. But I am like many average beginners who want a great sounding keyboard, that doesn't look like a geek toy, easy portability, a slender footprint, & enough bells & whistles to add some fun to the basics. This keyboard is all that. Plus it's attractive -- looks nice sitting atop the furniture, and it has a wonderful, silky key action that makes practice a joy. Beautiful sound, good feel, nice to look at, easy to carry. I look forward to exploring the world of midi after I get a good grasp on the basics.

Perfect for a small studio

I bought this because I have a small space. It has a great sound (especially when plugged in to an external amp). A clean unit without a lot of (for me) useless bells and whistles (who needs yet another rendition of Twinkle Twinkle Little Star). While it only features 8 sounds, that's more than enough for me. Unplugged the volume is a bit shallow. But for me, plugged in it does everything I require. A fun little unit

Asked by: Vijay
This keyboard can be used as a MIDI controller, to control the sounds of software instruments in a recording program (DAW). As well, you could connect the headphone out of the piano to a two channel audio interface and record the sounds of the piano to a DAW.
