Excerpt: I bought this piano as a means to find out whether I liked piano playing. That meant it had to have a bare minimum of sound and feel resemblance of a real piano. Sound has to inspire, touch has to give you the ability to express yourself.
Excerpt: 76 notes!!! Midi in and out USE I use it as a MIDI keyboard and I'm satisfied with it. It's light and can work with batteries. It's a good Midi keyboard and its price is unbeatable, at least to start playing piano without going broke...
Excerpt: When I bought this from a music store, I had a choice between: the np-30 and another, smaller keyboard. Needless to say that bought it, this was as the np-30, despite having 10 voices, had touch-sensitive keys and a longer keyboard length (76 keys), perfect for learning piano on.
