This tool is not very different from its predecessor, except that a slight change in appearance

The standard for Yamaha entry-level digital pianos is Graded Hammer Technology. It involves a balanced, adjustable, full-fledged keyboard that offers the feel of an acoustic piano keyboard, which is heavier in lower case and lighter in high.
This keyboard is great for musicians with weak hands, novice pianists, as well as for those who like a stronger press. The keys do not make a clicking sound.
The P-115 has 14 tones, two of which are brand new - Wurlitzer and rock organ.
The standard for this piano was the sound of the concert piano CF III, which has a rich sound, which is especially important for an instrument of this class.
Also added 14 built-in rhythmic tones, which are associated with the App (application), which can be used to adjust the volume and tempo.
This model has improved surround sound. With a 192-note polyphony, even the most complex virtuoso passages will be possible.
A key feature of the keyboard is the increased response of the damper resonance, for a more natural sound when playing piano tones. This is a big improvement over the previous model, which had only 128 notes.
The new feature of using the application connecting it to the keyboard may become the new standard among other brands and models.
This allows you to save predefined settings and gives you a number of options for creating custom settings that can be reconfigured.
The keyboard is divided into two equal halves, which allows you to play a duet.
A great opportunity for beginners, but there is a range limit. There is also an overlay function where each voice can be adjusted.
There are also 4 reverb styles in the P-115, as well as a chorus that will add expression to some presets.

This is a great, easy-to-use piano with great acoustic piano sound. This makes it ideal for those who cannot afford the classical piano.
Hammer technology and a damper pedal give a sense of authenticity.
The instrument on the stand and with three pedals is a beautiful high-quality instrument that does not take up too much space. This model is suitable for small apartments, if you are, of course, a musician.
Working with headphones, you don’t disturb your neighbors at any time of the day.
The speakers provide a pretty nice full sound, without further amplification even on the street.
The tool comes with only one pedal, however, you can buy a rack and pedal block, but this reduces the portability of the tool.
The model is good for everyone: portability, and the ability to create various melodies, but its minus is the lack of flexibility in tuning the instrument. It seems to me that Yamaha integrates this feature into more expensive models.
The keyboard weighs about 11 kg, and for the safety of the instrument it needs to be placed on a stand to avoid falling due to light weight.
Compared to other brands, Yamaha somewhat overestimates the capabilities of the P-115. Despite the good price, you will only get the name of the company that created this tool in order to at least somehow compete with other companies in this price range.
