A digital piano is a modern electronic musical instrument whose main purpose is to serve as an alternative to the traditional acoustic pianos, and while they may fall short of the performance levels of a real (acoustic) piano, they certainly have other advantages, which, when added up, actually end up crowning the digital piano as the superior version of the same instrument! Other than being a better value for money, digital pianos can be as simple or as full-featured as you desire, plus their portability feature allows them to be set up anywhere in your home or the outdoors. In this article we review the Yamaha P115.
The legendary P-Series of Yamaha digital pianos brought with it a plethora of such advantages, which made it the industry favourites and the best selling digital piano line of all time. Now the new Yamaha P115 B Digital Piano is the latest keyboard to join this legendary P-Series of digital pianos. It carries on the tradition of the best selling P-Series with even more user-friendly features and much improved sound quality. It is a compact and portable piano, which features Yamaha’s outstanding acoustic piano touch and tone, is easy to use and is suitable for just about everyone from a beginner to a pro!
