Piano bench reco?

Recommended Posts

I bought a grand piano recently, and it came with a mismatched crappy little bench. I recently got it working and tuned well enough to really enjoy playing it, and after sitting at it for a few ours, my butt is sore!

 

Please recommend a decent inexpensive basic black (ivory satin) piano bench.

 

Thanks!

Average price is more like $200 from what I have seen.

I like the non-cushoined benches. Makes it a TON easier to slide your butt around when changing registers if need be....

 

Yes but the Jansen Artist Bench is so "cushie for my tushie." :laugh:

 

There aren't nearly enough things in life that one can say that about, so I'll stick with it on that basis alone.

That's a good point. I usually don't have a problem with benches, not that I ever noticed before. But the one I have is also too low.

 

I'm used to using a stool or wheeled office chair. A bench definitely beats the stool: it's nice to move without having to use a hand and the while the wheeled office chair is fine for my office/studio, it would look real silly at the grand.

 

The amazon one looks like a great deal, but no doubt it's naugahide. I bet the Janson is leather which would breathe better and avoid ... well I hope I don't need to go there.

 

Mewisenhower, that's just what I needed last night! A bit of cushie. :laugh:

 

Jimmy you have to come over and check out the difference in the action, not to mention how it sounds with a half-decent tuning. I'm convinced it was tuned to a baroque temperment. Either that or a broke one.
