Questions & Answers
Question: Are the keys weighted and does it come with a power plug?
Hi, Thank you for your message. The keys on the the NP12 is not weighted. They first Digital Piano with weighted keys is our Yamaha P45. Please see the related products below
Question: is this keyboard piano touch?
Thank you for getting in touch. The NP-12 features a standard home keyboard action. This means that it's not weighted and so doesn't feel like a piano.
It does, however, feature touch-sensitive keys so (like a piano) the harder you press them, the louder the sound will be. This is essential for playing with expression.
For a portable instrument that has both a weighted action and touch-sensitivity, please look at our P Series portable pianos:
Question: Hi, does this pack come with a lead that connects the piano to the mains electricity? Thanks, Grace
Hi Grace, thanks for getting in touch. Our NP-12 Keyboard does include a UK mains power adapter and so there's no need to buy one separately.
