Here’s another great keyboard from Yamaha, this time from their popular P-series of digital pianos.

The pianos in this line combine the company’s pro-level sound and build with a user-friendly (and budget-friendly) design, making them more accessible for a wider diversity of players.

You could call this particular piano an intermediate-level model.  It represents a nice middle ground…

Not too pricey, but a viable instrument for a serious musician.

The main piano sound is modeled after one of Yamaha’s top of the line concert grand pianos, using their advanced Pure CF Sound Engine. This gives it a far more musical, expressive sound than many digital pianos.

Yamaha has also improved the on-board tweeter over previous models so the high end is brighter and livelier.

In addition to the built-in speakers there’s an auxiliary out so you can hook up an amp or cabinet.

To put it briefly…

It’s stage ready, making it a great affordable choice for gigging musicians.

As if that’s not enough, the Yamaha P-115 also has some cool features that both students and pros will enjoy.

The Pianist Styles feature is the most unique.

Choose one of the ten styles and play a chord--it will create an accompaniment figure for you to play over.

Now that’s an awesome feature!

There are also a plethora of rhythmic accompaniments to choose from. Both features can be controlled either on the piano or through the Yamaha Digital Piano Controller app.

The app seems to be by far the better options—the on-board controls aren’t labeled clearly, and they’re not very intuitive, our only major complaint about this piano.

We love the versatility of the Yamaha P-115. It’s light enough to take to gigs and sturdy enough to survive the journey, with useful included features that students, teachers, and performers will appreciate.

  • Keys: 88
  • Voices: 14
  • Effects: Reverb, Chorus, EQ
  • Power: AC Adapter (included)
  • Weight: 26 pounds
