Best Buys are products that offer outstanding value for their price and warrant special attention from consumers.

The new NP-30 Portable Grand Digital Piano represents an entirely new class of Yamaha Digital Piano. Designed to offer quality, value and unprecedented portability without sacrificing the playability of the key action, the NP-30 includes 76 Graded Soft Touch piano-style keys and AWM stereo-sampled piano voices.

Weighing only 12 pounds and operating on six AA batteries (or a power adaptor), it is the first Yamaha Digital Piano that can truly be played anywhere. Additional features include convenient transpose and tuning functions, built-in stereo speaker system and ten quality Voices, including pianos, organs and strings.
