The Yamaha P-115 digital piano, an upgrade to Yamaha's popular P-105 model, includes exciting new features that make it one of the best models on the market for beginners and experienced players alike.
Great for the aspiring pianist looking for a space-saving digital piano without compromising sound and quality, the Yamaha P-115 has Graded Hammer Standard (GHS) weighted action, meaning there is a heavier touch in the low end, and lighter touch in the high end; Similar to the hammers inside an acoustic piano! Along with a matte finish on the black keys, this means that it'll be an easy transition when it comes time to perform on an acoustic piano.
The P-115 digital piano has a 192-note polyphony, which is an improvement over the P-105's 128-note maximum, so you can be sure that your music sounds as sweet as can be. You are able to perform complex piano passages without dropping or cutting off notes. Also enhanced in the P-115 model is the sound quality! The Pure CF Sound Engine faithfully reproduces the tone of Yamaha's renowned CFIIIS 9-foot concert grand piano, allowing for incredibly dynamic and expressive playing.
The P-115 also 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. You can use these rhythms as a practical and fun alternative to a metronome while practicing, or simply use them as a virtual drummer for your performances.
The P115 is loaded with a variety of rich Voices, from pianos to electric pianos, organs, strings, bass and more! These Voices can be enhanced by four different reverbs that you can adjust to your preference.
Pianist Styles turn your simple chords into exciting accompaniment. Simply play chords with your left hand and the Pianist Style gives you a full piano accompaniment. This leaves your right hand free to play other melodies and chords, or just add a little more flare to your accompaniment.
Also new for the P-115, is Yamaha's free app, "Digital Piano Controller," available as a free download from the iTunes App Store. This app allows you to control the many functions included in your Yamaha P-115 digital piano 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.

We recently started our 7 year old son on piano lessons. We weren't ready to commit to a piano, but we still wanted to make sure that he had something that he could practice on that would give him what he needed. We started looking at digital pianos and immediately started looking at Yamaha. They have a great reputation so it was a no brainer. The P-115 is great. It feels great and, along with the furniture style stand and 3 pedal unit, has everything you need to take piano lessons. You can also record your playing. Two speakers on top help with the sound. I definitely recommend this piano!
