Even though both pianos were produced by different manufacturers
, they are competing in everything from features, to sound and price.
Despite being made by different companies, there are a few things that users can expect from both pianos:88 weighted keys
Dual, layer, split mode
The dimensions of the Kawai ES-100 differ only slightly from Yamaha’s P-115. The Yamaha P-115 is taller by less than an inch, and wider by about the same. This should of course
never be the ultimate deciding factor between pianos, but we felt it was worth noting.
Each piano features a “dual” mode that allows for each side of the piano to sound like a different instrument. This adds extra depth to any piece, so you won’t be missing this feature regardless of which piano you choose. “Split” mode also makes either piano ideal for a classroom setting or for duets as the keyboard becomes two pianos, split right down the middle.
Another great feature for learning in or out of the classroom
is the internal recorder. This allows for you to play your music, record it, and play it back. You can listen and see where you can improve or record a progression on one hand and play along with the other.
The P-115 allows you to record 1 song with a capacity of approximately 11,000 notes. The ES-100 accommodates a little more with enough space for 3 songs, approximately 15,000 notes memory. The P-115 allows for 2 tracks, while the ES-100 only allows one. More at http://toptablelamp.com
