Recently I purchased a new matching padded piano bench for sale online that has been an asset to my music and proved to be a positive buying experience. This short article will explain what you need to look for and what options there is in economical benches for sale.
The most important function of a piano bench is to provide proper height and secure, stable seating for the player. While adjustable seating and music storage is useful, it is not necessary if the buyer’s budget is limited and only looking for the needed essentials. Another requirement for the musician practicing long hours is comfort, a lightly padded bench can provide this and the porous vinyl covering is also resistant to stain and water spots. This is useful if the bench is to be used by or around children or adolescents.
Insuring the bench is the proper height is also of paramount importance. When you buy a bench, make sure the seller is a specialist in piano benches, otherwise your bench might be designed for an electronic organ or other musical instrument and may not be the standard piano height. A standard height piano bench will match all acoustic pianos including grand, baby grand piano and professional grade digital keyboard cases.
Will a padded piano bench suit your needs? If you want a rather compact bench, and have an acoustic baby grand piano, upright piano or digital piano or keyboard you should be happy, unless you have a special requirement like adjustable seating or need an extra wide or long bench. What I like the most about my new bench is the comfort of a padded top, the compact, sturdy design making it easy to move and even transport. Lastly, what I like is the price, taking in consideration that my spending budget is limited and the price of the bench including shipping was less then fifty dollars in total cost.
