The P-115 digital piano carries on the tradition of the best-selling P-Series, with even more user-friendly features and improved sound quality. Available in black or white finishes, the P-115 delivers Yamaha piano touch and tone in a compact design and is ideal for home, home-studio or stage use. The P-115 is an 88-key graded hammer action piano with a complement of common sounds including different grand piano voicings, electric pianos from an authentic Rhodes to an FM-style piano, clavinet, strings, vibes and more. You can split and layer sounds, and enjoy the output from its high-quality built-in speakers or patch the output into a larger amplification system. Available in black or white finish (choose from dropdown menu).
The Pure CF Sound Engine is the result of years of piano-making history combined with state-of-the-art sampling technology and expertise. Yamaha is the industry leader in digital piano technology, and you can hear this in the sound of digital pianos that utilize the Pure CF piano sample. The P-115 includes the sound of Yamaha's renowned CFIIIS 9' concert grand piano and is faithfully reproduced, allowing for incredible dynamics and expressiveness making Pure CF-equipped digital pianos worthy of the Yamaha name.
Authentic to the touch
Yamaha's GHS (Graded Hammer Standard) weighted action has heavier touch in the low end and lighter touch in the high end, just like the hammers inside an acoustic piano. Great for the aspiring pianist, practicing on the GHS action builds the proper finger technique for when the time comes to perform on an acoustic piano. Plus, the matte finish of the black keys are less slippery when playing for extended periods of time.
Accompaniment with style
The P-115 has on-board drum rhythms for practice or performance. There's a variety of rhythm patterns to choose, from basic rock to shuffle and swing beats. Use the rhythms to add an element of fun to your practicing, or simply use them as a virtual drummer for your performances.
Free Digital Piano Controller app
Yamaha's free app, "Digital Piano Controller," allows you to control the many functions included in Yamaha digital pianos with your iPhone or iPad, for even easier operation. Voices, rhythms and other settings can be selected while looking at the screen, making it easy to enjoy new functions with ease. You can also save your favorite settings for quick recall at any time. Find new ways to enjoy your P-115, using iPad functions that only a modern digital instrument can provide.
For the asking price -- quite a good instrument. But, there are some weakness. Contrary to the claims of the manufacturer, it has the samples of not very good quality. The keyboard is also not quite perfect -- the distance between the keys F#,G#,A# is less than between C#,D#. And my fingers (not very fleshy, rather thing) hardly placed between F#,G#,A#.
